  1. Review by Peter verified purchaser

    Have a 20watt, 45watt & needed another 60watt, they are all Hakko RED Soldering irons and why would you change from something that works so well ,i,m a big user of Soldering irons (6 hours at a time)

  2. Review by Cameron verified purchaser

    Fantastic cheap and simple soldering.
    Works great for large wires.
    Heats up quickly.
    However, I found this iron to be excessively hot (literally glowing red), large and unwieldy when it comes to LED Strips and Circuit boards (even large, through-hole types). (Posted on 27/07/2018)

  9. Review by Asherah verified purchaser

    Per the box instructions, the first ~5–10 minutes it's switched on it'll burn off some residue, after that it's fine. (Posted on 1/12/2017)
