Description: The Weller Portasol Kit is a fantastic box filled with a pocket-sized, butane-powered soldering iron as well as multiple attachments for it. Each soldering iron has been equipped with a push-button Piezo ignition that adjusts from 25-Watt to 75-Watt for ease and convenience. This iron is versatile too, functioning as a soldering iron, hot air gun, butane torch or hot knife; you’ll be hard pressed to find something you can’t do! It’s ready to use quickly — fewer than 40 seconds after ignition — and can run for up to 60 minutes on a single tank of butane.

These soldering irons are completely cordless and would be very useful for field repairs. As a bonus, since the Weller Portasol Butane Soldering Iron is powered by butane fuel, there is no danger of electrical current leakage damaging sensitive components.

This product includes the soldering iron, a mini blow torch tip, a hot knife tip, a hot air tip and deflector, and a protective cap — all contained in a handy travel case.

Note: Butane fluid is NOT included.

Features:

  • Portasol Professional Self-igniting Cordless Butane Soldering Iron
  • ESD safe to protect sensitive components
  • A lightweight, compact cordless butane soldering and hot air tool
  • Piezo ignition with push-button ease and convenience
  • Fast heat-up for high productivity — melts solder in fewer than 40 seconds
  • Gas capacity allows up to one hour of continuous use, ample for most jobs
  • Refills in fewer than 20 seconds so you can stay on the job
  • Automatic cut-off switch when cap is replaced for safety
  • Can be used as a mini torch with optional PPT12 flame tip

    ESD safe to protect sensitive components

    Weller, why you have to be so bad?

    Anyway, when we used these for field repairs on live railroad equipment it actually was an advantage to have a soldering iron that isn’t grounded. But calling these ESD safe and suitable for “sensitive components” is a joke.
