With this, you can set the temperature, create up to 5 presets for different solder profiles, and set a password to avoid accidental setting changes.

The FX-888D is compatible with T18 series tips and has a 30% increase in heater output compared to the standard Hakko 936/937.

    This is a well made soldering station. Just picking up the base unit will convince you of that - it is solid and heavy and exudes quality ! The hand-piece itself is also clearly well made but this time it is light and delicate - perfect for fine soldering control. These two pieces are linked by about a metre of cord - silicone rubber shielded I think - very flexible and no doubt relatively heat resistant. Temperature adjustment is done by pressing only two buttons and is very intuitive - adjusts like setting time on a digital clock - press one button : a digit flashes, press the second button one or more times as needed to select the value, press first button : moves to next digit, etc. The soldering stand is also very nice and has compartments for a sponge and a wire mesh ( both included ) and the base unclips for easy cleaning. I found this iron heats rapidly upon startup - maybe 15 to 20 seconds to go from room temp. to 350 C. It's quite fun watching the digital display rocket upwards after pressing the on switch on the side of the unit. On the job I did today, the soldering performance was flawless - so much better than old fashioned non temperature selectable irons ! This iron is worth every cent of its price and it's also worth buying only from a reputable supplier because there are fakes of this product out there. (Posted on 22/06/2018)

    The best station I've owned [ever]. Very easy to adjust temp & works well at lower heat settings. (Posted on 30/06/2017)
