This is an excellent tool to have. Anyone that does electronics on any type of vehicle needs this. I have worked in an autobay where I installed electronics in all sorts of vehicles. It gets frustrating and time consuming having to run a power cord everywhere I go in order to solder connections. This beautify has cut my time in half. I no longer need to run power cables wherever I go. I can grab this and quickly solder any connection I need. My complaint is with the case. It is poor quality. The plastic needs to be made a little thicker and stronger. Other than that an excellent tool.

I’ve got a few electric soldering irons and I’ve been using them a long time. But I’d looked at a few of the butane ones recently and was considering giving one a try. When I saw this Weller one I figured I could not go wrong with a Weller since I’m familiar with the quality of their products. And this was no exception. I bought some fuel and loaded it up. It’s very easy to fuel and the window on the side makes it easy to see when it is full. I really like the quickness with which it gets hot. You just don’t get tht kind of instantaneous with an electric. And I can see there being occasions it will be nice being able to solder without having to pull power to where I am doing it. I love it. I don’t know why I took so many years to give one a try. My only regret is not doing so sooner. I can think of a few jobs it would have made easier. So if like me you have not tried one I would give it a go.

This butane soldering iron works very well and is fairly easy to use. It comes with 3 different size tips for soldering and one for heating. You can also remove the tips and use just the open flame. There is a cover for the soldering end that you can put on so that you will not burn your case or fingers. It also has a built in stand that you can flip out for when you want to leave the soldering iron on but not burn anything. It also comes with a small tub with material in the bottom for cleaning the soldering tips.The gas button is on one side toward the top and the piezo ignition is on the other side also near the top. At the bottom is the adjustment for heat and flame size that you adjust by rotating. On the side of the base of the tip is a small window that lets you see if the tool is on or off, it glows red when the flame is on. It is fairly easy to change the soldering tips which you do by unscrewing the tip holder just above the switches. When you put on the tip cover it will automatically push the gas valve to the off position so you will not accidentally leave it running. The soldering iron is about 9 1/2 inches long and a little over an inch in diameter. It does NOT come filled with butane. There are also other tips available for it. The case is decent but not of super high quality and I am pretty sure that over time the hinges will give up. All in all a nice tool that is easy to use, with decent quality parts and is well thought out.

Just got the Portasol PSI100K Self-Igniting Butane-fired soldering kit. I have both pen and gun-type AC powered soldering irons, but this is the first I have owned that does not have a power cord tether. The iron itself is solidly built, but not so much that it is heavy or unwieldy. It also has a built-in kickstand that actually works (see pictures). It is rated for up to 125 Watts of output, adjustable with a knob at the back of the iron, CW for less heat. CCW for more. This is enough to solder things like 1/4" phono jacks and at least #10 AWG wire (what I had). The kit comes with two sizes of chisel tips for soldering, a thick and very solid hot knife for foam and thin plastic (though the kerf may be an issue), plus there is a straight nozzle that also has a clip-on reflector for heat shrink, for a total of four. The instructions say a total of 10 tips are available, and the case has room for a total of six, plus the one on the iron. Just as an experiment, I removed the reflector from the straight nozzle and used it to flame polish the edges of some 1/8" polycarbonate (Lexan) sheet I am cutting to enclose a 3D printer. It worked, though it took time and I needed to keep it moving, or I blistered plastic. I thought this was a tool that is nice, but not essential, but I am now convinced the portability alone makes it worth having. It is a soldering iron/hot knife/heat gun that can be carried in a tool box and fit in a pouch when needed. If you do electrical field service or repair work, service work on vehicles or other types of equipment, setup work at conventions or trade shows, or are an off-roader who has to make the occasional repair, this thing could save you a lot of time and grief. Ask for it by name.

This is my first time using a Butane solder gun. I like the fact it heats up and is ready to use in about 30 seconds. The main thing I’ll be using it for is repairing wiring on different type of vehicles, like trailers, lift trucks and some 4 wheelers. This way I don’t have to run an extension cord into the lot where some of these repairs are made, especially in the summer. It comes with 5 tips and there’s about another 6 you can purchase separately. I wish they would etch the number of the tip on each of them. Included is a defector for heat shrinkable tubing. It doesn’t come with butane so I purchased from the local WM. Fueling was easy, took less than 20 seconds. The case is different then the one pictured on THD web-site, I like it better because there’s storage for additional tips if I purchase any. I wish they’d print the instruction sheet on a full size sheet of paper because I had to resize it, enlarge, in order to read it.

Just advised by my son that I'd chosen a top notch soldering iron by Weller. I've always wanted a cordless  iron, and this model certainly has every desirable element.  Very well built, and well designed, including the storage case that was included. Extra space for additional tips of your choosing. Very lightweight, and so easy to hold onto which is an added bonus, in my opinion. The attached kick stand helps too when the tool is heating up, or cooling down. Simple to refill with quality butane products available most anywhere, especially at Home Depot. Refill takes less than 20 seconds, so no waste of time in completing your projects. Push button ignition lights up really fast, and heats up to 1076° F. I look forward to adding additional tips and accessories as needed. Highly Recommended for all Home Depot Shoppers.

i needed a new soldering iron. i have never owned a butane powered one. this looked good so i got it. it arrived in perfect condition and in a nice storage box. the first thing i noticed was the directions, they are very small print and lacking in detail. it took me a while to figure out how the tip, shroud and heat shield worked. once i learned how to change a tip. i was very impressed. this is the best and most powerful soldering iron i have ever used. it is a real pro tool and should have complete instructions. how to maintain as well as how to use. that said; i am happy with it.

Great for use when an AC outlet is not convenient or you need to do a couple of quick solder tasks. The kit consist of; torch assembly (w/ handle / butane tank) - has a convenient kick stand built in and a window to see the liquid butane in the tank. 4 tips: 2 chisel point solder tips (pre tinned 2.7mm and 5mm wide), a wedge 'hot knife 9mm long and a hot air tip with a removable curved guide (good to to heat shrink tubing). Solder sponge in a cup. Cover for the hot end that insures the gas valve is off when stored. Storage case has slots for all of the items and space for a another tip(s) and a roll of solder (in the space the cap was shipped in). Heats fast, obviously the torch is instantly ready, the solder tips are good to go in under a minute. The manual states this is equivalent to a 125 Watt soldering iron. Hints Save the manual, it is small and shows how to change the gas venturi if you ever need to, and has a list of tips / parts. Test this tool in torch mode first to get a feel for the affect of pressure on the igniter, and how it effects the gas valve/flame. Buy good quality butane to prevent plugging up the gas venturi. Don't run it hotter than needed, it just burns out the tips. Don't take this in your luggage on an airplane. TSA confiscated my old one, loaned to friend in his checked bag... I miss the 5 second start up sound of the old one...this one is silent.

Well made and works well. Comes a nice case that holds the four included tips. The case also has room for three more tips so any extra ones you purchase don't end up at the bottom of your tool bag. There's also a parking spot for the sponge so you can keep the tip clean. I'm usually not a fan of butane tools since they are sometimes really fussy to refill. This one filled quickly and easily. Lighting takes a just few seconds. There's a large knob at the base to control the flame from warm to smokin' hot. Weller throws in four tips: small and large soldering tips, "knife" tip (kind of a wedge shape that will work great when cutting plastic), and a heating tip. The heating tip comes with a reflector so you can easily melt heat shrink tubing from just one side. If you remove the tips, you can use a tiny jet of flame. The main handle has a fold out stand so you don't have to hold on to it while it's still hot. My only gripe is the micro-font used in the instructions. My over 55 eyes weren't happy with that. Nice tool that's nicely made in Ireland. Not the first place I'd think of for soldering irons, but they did a good job on this one.
