Woke up New Years Day to a Dryer that would not work. Did a little research and pulled the circuit board out to find a pin that looked like the solder had melted right off. Picked this up in hopes it would work well enough to get this little task done. I have not soldered in many years. Worked great. Dryer is back up an running. The torch gets hot quick. Id say about 20 sec. The flame is strong. I think people need to realize that when you go to ignite the torch it should be on high. Then you can turn it down. Looks to be of good quality. Cant wait to use it again. Took away one star because I feel a case would have been nice to have.

All 3 functions worked as described. A little tricky to fill so don't push down too much, all that is needed is a very slight contact seal with fuel canister and a very gentle downward pressure. Use impurity free upper grade butane fuel and not lighter refill butane, it makes a big difference.
Great features, heat blower is good for heat-shrink, solid performance.
I dislike the mechanism but it's not the worst, also a little bulky.
No way to know how much butane is left of if it is filled correctly, a clear canister would b beneficial.
I have only used this a few times so far, but quality seems good and it ignites consistently.
The only thing that I would personally like to have for it is a small carry case like other butane soldering irons I've used before, but that also takes more space...
Overall, I am happy with this purchase.
