Look - let me go ahead and save you some time & trouble, & get you straight to the ultimate end. Take out your wallet, remove $15 USD* and replace your wallet Then put the $ bills thru your shredder. Mine, after heating up for 10 minutes on max setting, is barely warm enough to melt the solder. Original and replacement....cost & hassle just not worth it.

This is a common complaint with some of the cheaper soldering stations such as this one.The next common complaint is the cheap vinyl power cord which is used to connect the soldering iron to the soldering station.it is not as flexible as stations that use silicon wire and it can feel like you are fighting the cord all the time instead of it moving freely with your hand movements.The vinyl type cords are also not burn proof so definitely don't make contact with the soldering irons hot tip unless you want to see electrical fireworks.Silicone wire is high heat rated and is also much more resistant to being burned should accidental contact with the hot iron occur.There are units on the market that already incorporate these features.sometimes you pay for what you get.Every little improvement costs extra money so my advice to anyone is to buy the best unit that you can with what you can possibly afford.Good quality tools are never a waste of money and make work a lot more enjoyable and easier to accomplish.That's been my experience to date.

I bought this item by mistake. I live in New Zealand and we use 220 volts. If I change the mains plug on the US version (110v), will this be ok to use with 220v in New Zealand???
 Turbobeaver 1407 points
Definitely not.You need to get yourself a wall adapter(travel adapter) which is essentially a step down voltage transformer which changes your coutries current from 220v to 110v.You simply plug your soldering station into the voltage adapter and your good to go.Hope this helps.Bruce Simpson at RC Model Reviews had to do this as well a while back when he bought himself a new 110VHakko soldering station.He found out that the 110V version of the soldering staion was still way cheaper to buy than the 220V version even after he took into consideration the cost of the step down voltage adapter on top of that.If you e-mail Bruce directly,i'm sure he'll be glad to tell you exactly what he uses as he also is from your country.

Hobby King should start carrying the Yihua 936A version instead of this soldering station.It jumps up to 60-75W from its current 45-50W rating and makes soldering 8 and 10 gauge wiring possible.The 936A model is aq higher quality unit and is more comparable to the popular TrakPower TK-950 in build quality and performance.The soldering iron cord on both the Hiyua 936A and the TK-950 is a silicon type wire instead of the lower quality.less flexible,lower heat rated vinyl type which is used on ,the Yihua 936.According to the specs at Hiyua,the 936 uses a "common" type heater element while the 936A is listed as using a better quality "Hakko" heater.

1 thumbs up!
So nice, and a fantastic value! Now I can solder with precision, and not get the iron so hot that the flux burns away, like the standard soldering irons do. I also like the iron holder, much better than the usual wire stand. A must for working on circuit boards and with small components. I would have gotten it from the US warehouse and saved $15 on shipping, but they were out of stock. Now they're back in stock. Just get one of these, you won't go wrong. One of HobbyKing's best values.

Mine works awesome so far (with a proper tip attached) The one it comes with is way too thin if you're trying to solder anything other than super fine stuff and I imagine that's why the review below was negative...not using a proper tip. Mine heats up super hot in under 1 minute. This is a great unit and is comparable to any other...really it's a super buy even with high shipping due to its weight.

Much better than the soldering station I purchased at R@d10 Sch@ck some years ago. Replacement tips available on ebay really add versatility to this unit

I wrote this long review, it was great, but my session timed out and I lost it. In any case, this is a good product. I am comparing it to hobby grade irons, like the 25w Weller, or 60w Hobbico. The included tip is only useful for PCB work, so you want to order a selection of tips for this iron. Hobby King, you should carry a set, or at least include a larger conical tip and chisel tip with this iron. Charge an extra couple of dollars, and include a couple of extra tips. It heats up very fast, soldering in under a minute. The temperature control is great, and solid. I used it to solder on four pin headers (3 x 6 headers) on to controller boards, and it was much easier and did a better job than my old Weller. This is a great purchase. If you get one and it doesn't work great, talk to Hobby King, because it should work great.
