Weller Portasol Butane Soldering Iron Kit

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.

Core Skill: Soldering

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.

  • 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.

A Sweet Collection for your Toolkit

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 !
