Must have for LED tape light installation
I work in estate homes. This is the best soldering iron I have used. I work in tight spaces and on tall ceilings. Love not having an extention cord 15' in the air. Because I use Flux to clean, and make my connections. I have yet to replace the top. I purchased mine 2 years ago.

I would recommend only buy it with the case. This way it protects the iron. Plus I only use a 3.0 m12 battery or larger. This way I can have it standing to mark so of the more chall connections.

Great product for field work
I am a field electrician for a helicopter company and this is perfect for soldering applications where we can't get an extension cord to our work area. I would like to see at least solder, and a sponge in the kit though. I still recommend this kit for anyone who needs a soldering iron outside or in a field environment.

Very handy.
I use this to solder electrical connection in automobiles and atv's. From the time it is turned on it is melting solder within seconds. No cord, ergonomic swivel handle and light for the underdash work.

Sometimes less is more
I purchased this item with a project in mind. Had a rodent get into my truck engine area and made a nest. In the building, it cut several bundles of wires. All had to be reconnected in some of the worse to get to spots imaginable! This cordless iron made the task a lot easier. Great that I had no cord to worry with, bad that the iron doesn't get super hot to make melting solder quicker. Battery life was sufficient for my use but it did deplete the battery fairly quickly.

Great tool!
Really nice soldering iron! Basic soldering done so far, 16 ga. wire, but it heated up very fast. Was even able to shrink heat shrink with it. Love the adjustable angle!
