i don't have any solder to test with but this is a great way to solder on the go and in tight places.it is very small and comes with a cover and you can refill the bottom portion that holds the butane. i think it is the standard butane you use for lighters. It starts up right away and if you need to hold what you are working on with both hands this is your tool because it stands up on its own.

(What's this)
This is a really handy little tool that is compact and complete. It has its’ own fuel and igniter so there is no hunting around for matches or lighter. Because it isn’t electric there is no cord to get in the way. (The soldering iron does not come with butane, so you will also have to purchase that too, but it runs a long time once it is filled.) A standard size propane torch is far too large for most of my projects and electric soldering irons are also generally too large for most of my projects and also have a cord to contend with. I needed to have a small soldering iron to repair my retractable electric extension cable that I had shorted out. My original effort to solder with the electric soldering gun failed because it was clumsy for me to use in the tight spot that I was working. I had a great deal of difficulty getting the heat exactly where I needed it and I was afraid of melting the plastic pieces the connectors were mounted on. This little soldering iron was a lot easier to work with and I was able to control the amount of heat and where I was putting it, so I made the repair using this torch and now I am back in business. (I tested the extension cord with my 15 amp dust collector and it worked fine.) Before working on the extension cord, I first practiced on soldering a couple of pieces of 14 gauge stranded wire together and that went so well I was confident that I could make the repair to the retractable extension cord.

Weller Mini Butane Soldering Iron is so easy to use. It fires right up by just turning on the butane switch and clicking the starter. The iron is hot enough to use right away and it is so nice not having a cord In the way. I had it running for nearly 10 minutes, so the fuel appears to last long enough to get the job done. You will need to buy standard butane fuel separately, the same you would use for cigarette lighters. The base is a nice edition that allows the iron to stand without worry.

(What's this)
It features a piezo ignition and a variable gas flow valve which means no lighter is required to get it going even with wind blowing. The conic tip a bit over 1mm thick with no flat surface making it ideal for almost any application indoor or outdoor. Very small so it is really portable and easily fits anywhere with no wires and no location limitation. Included cap protects the tip when stored in toolboxes among other messy places and snaps on tightly. It stands up on its own, instead of requiring a stand or the usual horizontal placement of other butane irons that ends up damaging the surface with heat. Refillable via port at the bottom and heats up quickly. One thing is, you better know how to solder because there are no instructions with this.

(What's this)
I am not a frequent user of soldering irons but every now and then I find myself needing to solder something when making electronic repairs. I’ve always found that the cord on my soldering iron tends to pull it around making it more difficult to be precise. I really liked the idea of this Weller butane soldering iron because it is cordless and easy to maneuver. This soldering iron is refueled by simply adding butane to the base like you would with a refillable lighter. The butane is sold separately. Once it is fueled, you turn it on by starting the butane flow and clicking on the ignitor. It started right up and heated very quickly. The temperature is adjustable to be used between 750 and 900 degrees Fahrenheit. When you need to put the soldering iron down, you can simply place it on its’ base which I find much better than some of the flimsy stands I’ve used before. Placing it on the base also allows you to solder hands free if you wish. I noticed that the Home Depot website says this has a run time of three minutes on a medium setting but the product literature says it will run for 30 minutes. I’ve used it for approximately 10 minutes so I’m thinking that the information on the website is a typo. I’m very impressed with the quality and convenience of this soldering iron and I would definitely recommend it.

This is great for me, I don't always want to setup and plug in my soldering iron and this solves that issue, it works great for automotive and when installing a stereo head unit wiring. There are times that I just cant get access to power and this is a great tool. It works good, and a must have tool, when you need this you will be glad you have it.

I needed a soldering iron to repair delicate circuits and found this butane soldering to be excellent to do what I needed. It is a very handy iron to have because of the size. The built in igniter is a plus because no matches are needed. It heats up quickly. I like that it can be used without the soldering tip as a torch. When you need to put it down it's safe because it stands upright on its own base.

I wouldn't recommend this for someone does an extreme amount of soldering. Although this iron it highly reliable there are heavier duty butane soldering irons from the same brand for around 3X the price of this one which if you're making money with it, it pays itself off and have a wide range of interchangeable tips not available for this model. Now if you need an iron to take on the go to do repairs, soldering projects, hobbies etc. this is worth every penny and you will love it like I do.

The Weller Mini Butane Soldering Iron is the first portable self contained solder iron I've used or owned. It is compact, solid and accepts the butane charge very well. The built-in piezo stater has worked every time, with adjust for the designated heat span a little stiff, but usable. I've used it for well over the "3" minutes stated here on the HD site! The HD Product Overview states "30" minutes and after checking the Directions and on line at Weller Tools, it is a "30 minute medium heat usage" rating...Nice!

(What's this)
This review is for the Weller ML500MP butane soldering iron. First impression: I love it. I obtained this little butane soldering iron from Apex Tool Group. This little soldering iron measures 5 1/2 inches in length and fits nicely in my hand. The unit comes with a clear plastic cap to protect the heating tip when not in use. Make sure you allow the tip to cool before putting the cap back on. It does not come with the required refined butane fuel, but that product is available most everywhere. I turned up the gas to halfway, clicked the button striker on the side and it immediately lit off and heated amazingly fast to a high temperature, which the literature says is 900 degrees. I tested the tip on a piece of 1/8 solder and it melts it quickly denoting this unit will be a great tool for those small soldering projects. I was initially skeptical about this butane iron and it's size, but I have to say that I am impressed with it's build quality and how easy it is to use and fuel. I have the standard big electrical soldering iron that you have to stare at and inevitably touch the tip with the end of your finger to see if it's hot. Not with this butane iron. It's hot NOW ! A nice feature I also like is that the soldering tip can be unscrewed and this used as a little torch, to say for using on heat shrink. I nice tool that is going to be a great additional to my electrical tools. Good job.
