Bad design
Only used the iron maybe 4 times and had it for less than a year, and I noticed that the Knurled Fastener melted making the sleeve guard bent. When trying to straighten the sleeve guard out, back to how it was, the hearing element broke. This is a bad design. It’s a very pricey iron to have parts melting.

    Great, at first but....
    I borrowed my friend's Milwaukee M12 when my previous soldering iron went out on me. I was super impressed that I went out and bought the Milwaukee M12 with the case and charger. Once again I was impressed when I bought this until after about the fourth use when the plastic collet that screws onto the top had melted and the metal threaded piece came loose and now I can't use it at all. Can't find this part to buy and apparently a lot of people have this issue. Other than that the soldering iron was great. (Tried to epoxy it)

      Bought this to replace my butane soldering iron. For working...
      Bought this to replace my butane soldering iron. For working behind aircraft instrument panels with limited access it works great. Heats up fast, the angle head is a nice feature for tight areas. Replaced a couple of rotary dimming light switches using a CP2.0 battery. Would recommend the CP3.0 battery. Like a butane iron you turn it on, perform your soldering and turn it off. No dragging a electrical cords or taking a chance of burning something with the butane exhaust.

        Melted collar Nut to tool after 3 uses
        I have had this tool for a while, but today on third use, the heating element melted the Jam nut to the tool, rendering the tool useless. I caught it (possibly) before the whole thing broke off and snapped the internal heating element I have an arsenal of M18 and M12 tools and have dealt with some small nuances. This tool is great concept but poor design. Do not recommend.

          Was great while it lasted
          Same as all the other reviews... worked great then the white heating element broke

            I wouldn't buy this again
            Heated up fast and does an excellent job but the collar that holds the tip on fell apart from the heat. No replacement parts.

              Not working
              Used this once thought this works great! Unfortunately second time, not sure why but it doesn’t heat up at all now! All I get is a green flashing light.

                Could be a great iron if not for a serious flaw!
                The iron is fantastic when it works but due to the way its manufactured the plastic ring that holds the tip eventually melts, fails and damages the heating element. To add insult to injury the plastic part that melts is NOT available as a service item.
