This basic Weller 25 Watt Soldering Iron Kit does exactly what it should: it solders, and for a basic soldering iron, it does its job well. It's an essential tool for a beginner, basic hobbyist or for the toolkit of a seasoned pro to replace an older version (and yes, have owned a few over the years). It heats up to about the recommended temperature of 750 degrees F, and has a heat-resistant handle that has been a trademark of this tool for years.

It includes three nickel-plated tips: a familiar chisel point, a pencil point, and a flat screwdriver tip. It has a stainless steel barrel, an improvement of the much older models that Weller used to make. And yes, they do last for years.

Wish that I could say the same about the ColdHeat Cordless Soldering Tool, but I can't due to some serious flaws in that product. See my review on it for further details.

If the small Weller soldering iron seems too basic for your needs, take a serious look at the Weller WLC100 Soldering Station, an excellent 5-star product for the hobbyist and the do-it-yourselfer alike. Must admit that this is the next one on my shopping list.

This is a good, inexpensive, consumer-oriented general purpose soldering iron for tasks such as automotive and household wiring and medium-sized electronic component work such as that antique Grundig reel-to-reel tape player you picked up at a yard sale. The included "soldering aid" tool is handy for straightening or bending wires and component leads. If you can, I suggest you pick this up at Wally-World - you'll pay local sales tax but, you'll save shipping costs and time.

The Weller brand from Cooper Handtools is outstanding. [...] But, make sure you understand that this particular kit - the SP23LK - is a consumer-grade item. For finer electronics work and somewhat advanced tasks such as "through-hole" and "surface mount technology" soldering and desoldering, the operating temperature of this iron is much too high and the included and available tips are much too large.) If you're just starting out in electronics and are even just somewhat serious about it, the SP23 is NOT the iron to start out on - you'll probably become quickly frustrated, burn up some components, not learn good soldering techniques, and wind up tossing the iron and your new hobby or profession. If your budget can afford it and you think you'll be spending a fair amount of time working with electronics, consider a "soldering station" such as the Weller WES51 Analog Soldering Station, Power Unit, Soldering Pencil, Stand and Sponge (outstanding price on Amazon, even with shipping!).

Otherwise, the Weller SP23LK is a good consumer-grade general purpose kit not intended for serious electronics work. I rate it 4-out-of-5-stars only because there are several other equally capable general purpose irons out there.

The biggest disadvantage of this Soldering Iron is the tip wills no longer soldering (The Soldering Tin could not cover the tip anymore) within 1-2 hours, but the good thing is we could use the Hakko Soldering tip to solve this problem easily.

I used the Hakko soldering station for many years when I was in China. To be honest, Hakko has the best soldering products I have seen in my life and the major difference between Hakko and other soldering products is the Tip. Hakko's soldering tip could be covered by the tin easily for at least one year. I came to this wonderful country for my undergraduate stdy. Therefore, I have no permanent home here, thus I looked for the chep soldering product which could use the Hakko tip. Eventually, I found this one.

The inside diameter of Hakko 900M-T-1.2D (4.07mm) is exactly equal to the outside diameter of Weller's MT1 tip. Thus, the MT1 could be inserted into the 900M, perfectly. (See my uploaded photo on this product's page for more information)

Finally, we could get a good soldering Iron under 20 bucks and this soldering iron could be used to solder the SMT ICs. Actually, I do use this soldering Iron to solder the PCBs which have tons of SMT ICs.

A cheap solder is a cheap solder. It does its job. I bought it to fix an emerald bracelet and I was successful. I saved a lot of money fixing it myself than paying a jeweler...

UPDATED 4/17/2012. The tip is no longer usable after just three or four uses. The metal that it is made out of must be very soft, because it didn't like my brass sponge. It is no longer conical: it now has a weird "dent". I can no longer recommend this iron.

Instead, go on SparkFun's website and get their $9.95 iron. It's vastly superior to this one, even if it does't come with all the extras.

I bought this to solder circuits. it barely manages surface mount parts if i wait long enough between soldering parts - but only barely. It is absolutely hopeless with other parts, and the long time it takes to melt the solder will actually damage your parts - I found this out after a few transistors malfunctioned after soldering. Besides not doing the job there are other cons:

1. the chisel tip cracked 5 minutes into soldering, then it broke off. Inside I could see bubbles of air and a thin copper core - incredibly low quality!

2. the pointed tip is neither sharp, nor round enough to make good contact with any type of component - not good.

3. power is way to low to be a useful soldering tool - barely good enough as a toy if you want to dress up as an electrical engineer for Halloween.

4. stand is a piece of bent metal, absolutely unstable and dangerous.

5. The build quality screams that it was produced for a good dollar or two - weller really blew it with this one. They clearly don't care about their brand name anymore, and would rather go for a quick short-term profit rather than brand loyalty - well - weller, you lost one more customer who was looking forward to graduating to one of your "pro" solder stations!

If you have heard good things about the brand Weller, look elsewhere - this is a cheap knock-off of a product with absolutely minimal production values - which would be ok if it did it's job - but it doesn't! Stay away!
