Im in the HVAC field and I wonder how well this will work to melt ice off of frozen evaporator coils?
Asked by: hvacman
It works about as well as a hair dryer. If you don't have a lot of ice to melt, it will work. For a major blockage, you are still better off with a forced air space heater. Your arms will than your.

Will this heat up the inside of a car in cold weather on a single charged battery?

Asked by: Austin
No. That is not the intended purpose and is probably very unsafe.

Highest temperature???

I want 350 deg C temperature , it's possible??
Asked by: fdti247
351* F is the hottest I got it (advertised as 875* F being max). So I would say it is not possible.

M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Compact Heat Gun (Tool-Only) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 134.

This is advertised at heating up 30% faster than corded. This is possible, due to the limited air flow compared to a plug in 1500 W style heat gun. This doesn't quite reach as hot as my AC heat gun, but that is not a bad thing. My AC gun gets too hot for many tasks. This chews through batteries fast, and I would recommend at least using the 5.0 style. This was a tool only, and the smaller drill style batteries will get discharged quickly with this. It isn't the tool for long hot air use. It is the tool for occasional heat shrink and other uses away from outlets. Many of the M18 tools do not have a limitation compared to AC alternative. This is one that does have a difference. Just understand that and it will work well. The only thing I would like to see if a way to hold the switch on for use in a blowing up mode for heat shrink with two hands. See video for example of this. It would be pretty easy to use a hook loop fastener strap to lock it on.

I agonized over buying this and now it's one of the things I use most. It's perfect for heat shrink connectors. It'snot as hot as a plug in, of course, but it gets there fast and won't char connections and heat shrink. Most of all it's fantastically convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this heat gun, it works great I needed a new heat gun for using when labeling wires with shrink tube. The took works well. It does go through batteries a little faster than I expected but still worth it. My only feedback is that I wish the TOOL ONLY came with the heat guard as this is a big part of using a heat gun.
