I bought this item in store about 6 months ago and it still works but the problem is that the heat remains in the base of the rod and does not extend to the tip. I then searched some videos on youtube and was informed that in order for the soldering iron to be good or at least decent, no matter how long it takes to heat up the heat must reach the tip of the rod. The cheap soldering irons will only work in such ways that the base will heat and if you keep it on for too long there is a chance that the plastic handle will melt before the heat will reach the tip. Be aware of these facts customers. If possible I would suggest an actual workstation with temperature control as it is more reliable. Don't take my word for it here's another unhappy customer with the same point. [...]

I am an electronic hobbyist, and i already have 2 other soldering iron that i use.
I bought 1 of these on and got it in less than 1 week, very good delivery time.
I turned it on, and used it for 1 hour.
To my great surprise, the bit point was completely gone. The round tip becaome flat surface.
What a joke!!
I am back using my cheap $7 iron, which beats this by far... and no burnt tip..

I'm terrible with a soldering iron, so take my opinion lightly. I used this iron to de-solder a bad connection and then resolder it. The soldering was A-1 but my skill was fail. I manage to de-solder and resolder the wire several times successfully, but was not able to repair the connection. Not the iron's fault.

I also made the mistake of touching the hot end of the iron. It instantly burned a wedge into my fingertip. I take that as a sign that it's probably hitting the 400 degrees celsius that it claims.

Minus 1 star because it is so light, a movement in the cord can cause it to flip off its stand too easily. It's a bit dangerous for clumsy people.

Really great little soldering iron. Works well, gets up to temperature pretty quickly and gets the job done.
No problems since buying it and I have done a whole variety of jobs with it.

Simply put, it works, and does its job well. Aug. 10 2008
By John Williamson - Published on
This basic Weller 25 Watt Soldering Iron Kit does exactly what it should: it solders, and for a basic soldering iron, it does its job well. It's an essential tool for a beginner, basic hobbyist or for the toolkit of a seasoned pro to replace an older version (and yes, have owned a few over the years). It heats up to about the recommended temperature of 750 degrees F, and has a heat-resistant handle that has been a trademark of this tool for years.

It includes three nickel-plated tips: a familiar chisel point, a pencil point, and a flat screwdriver tip. It has a stainless steel barrel, an improvement of the much older models that Weller used to make. And yes, they do last for years.

Wish that I could say the same about the ColdHeat Cordless Soldering Tool, but I can't due to some serious flaws in that product. See my review on it for further details.

If the small Weller soldering iron seems too basic for your needs, take a serious look at the Weller WLC100 Soldering Station, an excellent 5-star product for the hobbyist and the do-it-yourselfer alike. Must admit that this is the next one on my shopping list.

Good for General Consumer Use but, Not for Finer Electronics Work Aug. 1 2009
By DK - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is a good, inexpensive, consumer-oriented general purpose soldering iron for tasks such as automotive and household wiring and medium-sized electronic component work such as that antique Grundig reel-to-reel tape player you picked up at a yard sale. The included "soldering aid" tool is handy for straightening or bending wires and component leads. If you can, I suggest you pick this up at Wally-World - you'll pay local sales tax but, you'll save shipping costs and time.

The Weller brand from Cooper Handtools is outstanding. [...] But, make sure you understand that this particular kit - the SP23LK - is a consumer-grade item. For finer electronics work and somewhat advanced tasks such as "through-hole" and "surface mount technology" soldering and desoldering, the operating temperature of this iron is much too high and the included and available tips are much too large.) If you're just starting out in electronics and are even just somewhat serious about it, the SP23 is NOT the iron to start out on - you'll probably become quickly frustrated, burn up some components, not learn good soldering techniques, and wind up tossing the iron and your new hobby or profession. If your budget can afford it and you think you'll be spending a fair amount of time working with electronics, consider a "soldering station" such as the Weller WES51 Analog Soldering Station, Power Unit, Soldering Pencil, Stand and Sponge (outstanding price on Amazon, even with shipping!).

Otherwise, the Weller SP23LK is a good consumer-grade general purpose kit not intended for serious electronics work. I rate it 4-out-of-5-stars only because there are several other equally capable general purpose irons out there.

Good Value... April 22 2009

A cheap solder is a cheap solder. It does its job. I bought it to fix an emerald bracelet and I was successful. I saved a lot of money fixing it myself than paying a jeweler...

Solving the Tip problem May 22 2012
By Neil - Published on
The biggest disadvantage of this Soldering Iron is the tip wills no longer soldering (The Soldering Tin could not cover the tip anymore) within 1-2 hours, but the good thing is we could use the Hakko Soldering tip to solve this problem easily.

I used the Hakko soldering station for many years when I was in China. To be honest, Hakko has the best soldering products I have seen in my life and the major difference between Hakko and other soldering products is the Tip. Hakko's soldering tip could be covered by the tin easily for at least one year. I came to this wonderful country for my undergraduate stdy. Therefore, I have no permanent home here, thus I looked for the chep soldering product which could use the Hakko tip. Eventually, I found this one.

The inside diameter of Hakko 900M-T-1.2D (4.07mm) is exactly equal to the outside diameter of Weller's MT1 tip. Thus, the MT1 could be inserted into the 900M, perfectly. (See my uploaded photo on this product's page for more information)

Finally, we could get a good soldering Iron under 20 bucks and this soldering iron could be used to solder the SMT ICs. Actually, I do use this soldering Iron to solder the PCBs which have tons of SMT ICs.

UPDATED 4/17/2012. The tip is no longer usable after just three or four uses. The metal that it is made out of must be very soft, because it didn't like my brass sponge. It is no longer conical: it now has a weird "dent". I can no longer recommend this iron.

Instead, go on SparkFun's website and get their $9.95 iron. It's vastly superior to this one, even if it does't come with all the extras.
