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.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

The only bad thing about this product is that it needs refilling Butane gas and it is dangerous.
I had no LM1117 3.3 regulator and needed one immediately for my current project. Which I desoldered from a dead Arduino board with it - that's cost saving, time saving.
But this thing is a multipurpose device. Lets see what it can do :
Soldering Iron with Wattage Control (guess work), Hot Knife for cutting Plastic, Hot air Soldering and Desoldering for SMD, Lighter for lighting up Fire or Cigarettes, Engraving on Wood, Joke : Self defense lethal weapon against violent and unjust people
Comes with 4 tips for soldering, hot air, hot knife and jet-flame. Recommended !!!
Update 1 : Although possible but not suitable for soldering DIP components with the included tips, too wide for that kind of work. Good for wire joining though !
Update 2 : Exhaust comes out from the side hole of the tips during soldering which is very hot, almost burnt my finger !
