Its a soldering gun, nothing fancy, nothing great it works. BUT if you need new tips Home Depot as usual is worthless. Have to find a real hardware store tomorrow to get replacement tips.

Had a cheap pointed iron and was taking forever to solder a bunch of wire connectors, relays, etc for kid's power wheels upgrade. Bit the bullet and grabbed this soldering gun. Allows me to solder 10 connections in same time as I could do one before. This gun allows you to heat the elements you're connecting and then add the solder to those elements creating a much better connection--instead of just melting a blob of solder on top of connected items. High quality. Better results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zinger Great Soldering Iron
I had a compact soldering iron but it just couldn't stand up to constant use and finally failed. I shopped around and found this unit. As a bonus it comes in a study storage case, something I always appreciate.
For the tool itself it heats up almost instantly so no need to have it heating all the time. It also cools rather quickly. I have had no issues with it other than the first tip didn't last very long but perhaps I didn't do something correctly or I need the medium I see on the internet to clean the tip. Replacements are available, I now have a couple, but they are somewhat pricey. Overall I am very happy with the tool.

Great Soldering Gun. It heats up instantly ,and does the job. I Soldered my landscape lights, because the crimp connections dont hold up at all , its only a matter of time and they fail.The fast heat-up time made soldering wire splices for my Landscape lighting a snap.

Good for small, quick jobs (like wires). The tips are too small to "store up" a lot of heat for big things (like sheet metal). The instructions say to use the gun for no more than 1 minute at a time, then you must let it cool for 4 minutes (must be a transformer inside that would overheat).
For larger jobs you should get a conventional iron with a large tip (1/4" or bigger) that can stay hot.
For my project, a 50W continuous duty soldering iron did better than the 140W gun.
An odd thing about this gun is the 2-stage heat: pull the trigger half way and you get 140W; pull it to the next step for the 100W. I would've thought it the other way-- pull the trigger a little for a little heat (100W), and then pull it more for more heat (140W).
