Answer: 
Yes, the 25 watt gets hot enough to solder small electronics without getting too hot. I did order a smaller tip for that specific use. The higher wattage version, in my opinion, gets too hot for delicate work like you are mentioning and often burned the solder or surrounding components.

Answer: 
Spencer, we recommend our 25-Watt iron for use on Printed circuit boards, radio controlled, indoor lighting projects, but it can also be used on micro components, electronic kits, low-voltage wiring. This iron will only reach a temperature of 750°F. With the relatively low wattage of the iron it will take a longer time to heat up but will also minimize the amount of heat the work surface will be exposed Read More

Answer: 
The kit came with three tips. One that tapers to a point. The other two are shaped like chisels with one being more tapered than the other. They're about the thickness of a 16 penny nail. I've added a photo to this answer and included the ear bud from some headphones in the photo to give you an idea of scale.

Answer: 
TVG, This can be used as an extension of your fingers to move items or hold wires close to the iron.
It features a split end to hold wires and a point end for fine placement. Do use caution when using this close to a heated iron as it is plastic and can melt when exposed to high heat.

Answer: 
The aid is just the black plastic piece included, shown in picture. One tip is pointed the other is split. I have used this for knocking off small pieces of solder that splattered on to PCB boards. The split end also works to help clean out between pieces that have many leads to solder. It is plastic so it will melt. Not real useful for the actual act of soldering, for me anyway.

On another note, I used one of these in my traveling service kit for close to three years. I never had a problem, always worked. The LED lights are also a nice touch when working in areas with poor lighting. Read Less

Answer: 
This soldering iron is designed for small electronics and such is not the item needed for stained glass work. Weller does ,however, make a unit that will do well with your application.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very solid This is a very solid home use soldering iron, not fancy but it has an excellent warranty and looks like it will give years of light duty service. The kit comes with 3 tips, which is rather nice, I'll be using this primarily for art projects and I had one by the same company years ago and it lasted seemingly forever, I gave it to a friend after using it for years and it was still going strong. I expect this soldering iron will give me the same service. August 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Light Weight Portable Soldering Iron Let me start by saying I’m a soldering novice. I haven’t done much soldering other than simple experimentation now and then. I’ve used other tools in the past, just experimenting including soldering guns, torches and even actual irons heated by a flame. I wanted to pick up this kit for occasional work on small electronics or other projects. The kit comes with the soldering iron, a very basic metal stand (punched from a thin piece of sheet metal and bent into a stand like shape), three soldering tips, a soldering aid tool, a small coil of lead free solder, and a user’s guide. The user’s guide is essentially just a square of folded paper with some basic soldering instructions, safety guidance, soldering iron care, and warranty printed in three languages. The typeface is pretty small, so don’t forget your reading glasses. When I first plugged the iron in, before I even started to solder, the tip produced quite a bit of smoke while it heated. I was glad to have a vent hood fan in place over my work bench to send the smoke outside. The soldering tips screw on and off and are securely held in place when finger tight. The soldering iron is not temperature adjustable and seemed to take several minutes to heat up enough to melt any solder. The lights included in the handle focus nicely on the tip and provide adequate lighting for working on a project, even in a dark area, without much of a shadow being produced by the tip itself. I found the iron easy to hold and manipulate at my work bench. I would have liked the power cord to be more supple and perhaps a foot longer. Since the power cord is a little stiff, and the iron itself is fairly lightweight, you need to be very careful to set the iron down securely so that the power cord doesn’t cause the iron to move unexpectedly. The included stand is almost useless because it can’t prevent the iron from moving if the power cord is jostled. I was able to solder together a few wired electronics connections, so I achieved the goal for which I obtained this iron. Overall, I’d say this iron is good for occasional, light duty soldering or when portability is required. Since it doesn’t include features like an on off switch, temperature control, or an appropriate stand, it is less suited for anyone looking to do frequent or heavy duty soldering.. August 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your money Needed to replace my old solder iron. It's cord developed an intermittent open condition inside the handle. Stopped by Lowes and Home Depot to compare selection . H.D. had this iron for 3.00 less than Lowes. Heated up fast and the shape was good for keeping the tool from rolling around. The LED'S are a good idea but they don't add a lot of light. (better than nothing). After the iron reached temp. I tinned it with 60/40 solder. And after each connection (attempted) I dipped the tip in solder paste / tinned to keep it clean. I was soldering #22 gage wire to a microphone connector, nothing big. After having the iron for about 30 min. the tip had oxidized (turned black) it would no longer conduct enough heat to melt the solder let alone make a connection. I also noticed that the tip was pitting. A sad testament to the quality that Weller has stooped to. It's going back today October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job Basic. Does the job. Works. Heating time is adequate. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for small projects This soldering iron works great for the little electronic projects around the house. I used it to repair a wall charger for my daughter's tablet computer, and it worked great. Heated up quickly, and completed the job. The kit comes with some solder, and a little stand so to keep the hot point off the counter while you are working. This iron also came with several tips for the different jobs you may need to perform. I used the one that was on it, and was able to re-attach the wires in the charger. A good buy and a must have for most workbenches. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by works great !! LED lights are a plus ! I Like the product but would like to see longer soldering tips. Size could be a little more streamlined. September 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool, easy to use I have never soldered before, but wanted to try it for some jewelry that needed to be repaired (or thrown out). I took a quick course from a friend and went to work. I was surprised at how easy it was! Don't get me wrong....I still have a ways to go for perfection, but The Weller 25 watt soldering Iron is easy to handle and feels good in my hand. It is not too heavy and the 3 LED lights makes seeing the point I want to solder a breeze. This kit comes with 3 screw on tips, a soldering iron stand to rest hot iron on, a plastic soldering aide tool, lead-free solder and a very well-written user manual (although print is very small and I needed a magnifying glass). It heats quickly and stays hot throughout a project as well. My only complaints are that there is no off/on switch and no storage box for extra tips and tool. I was also told by my friend who taught me to use it, that he thought it would only take Weller tips when I need replacements. I don't know whether that's true or not. However, it is a well-made, high quality soldering iron that is great for beginners and pros alike. August 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soldering Iron If you've never soldered before, you might want to watch a video online first, but there is an instruction sheet with it though the print is quite small. However, the instructions are very thorough. It comes with a metal stand to rest it on & a really neat feature is the 3 LED lights on the end of the handle that point right at what you're working on. This soldering iron is easy to use if you know how to approach the project. Be careful because it's hot like it needs to be on the business end of the tool. It's a good size and a comfortable weight in your hand & well balanced. If you're thinking jewelry making rather than plumbing projects with metal pipes with this tool, it's the right size for that too. An extra plus is that it comes with a 7 year warranty. July 30, 2016
