Description: This is a very simple fixed temp, quick heating, 30W 110/120 VAC soldering iron. We really enjoy using the more expensive irons, but if you really need a cheap iron for your tool box, this lovely iron is a good choice. This is a low-cost iron and it works! But it doesn’t come with a stand. We recommend you checkout the iron stands below.
The iron is attached to a six foot cable which is terminated with a North American standard type B plug. There is a nice grippy surface at the end of the handle that does double duty as a nice heat shield.
A 1/32" pointed tip is included. The soldering tip and the heating element are replaceable, see related items below for compatible replacements.
Note: This is a 110VAC version and will only work properly on that voltage.
Make sure you check out our soldering tutorials.

If you need an inexpensive soldering iron, something to whack a few components onto a board with, this is the one should get. Sparkfun sells more high end irons if you need more, but this one is great for simple soldering. I’m happy with it.
