New Best 102c Soldering Iron Works Well

by oshdiy on Mon Feb 12, 2018 7:27 pm

I just received the new Best 102c 60w adjustable soldering iron.
I have found it to be of higher quality than the $10 irons on Ebay and Amazon.
The temperature setting is fairly accurate as I verified with 3 thermometers.
Most other irons with the little dial on the iron put out 150 degrees C more
than is specified by the dial. This leads to dangerous vapors.
The cord also appears to be of silicone and of good quality.
It also comes with a fine tip point that is good for detailed work.
My praise to Adafruit for selecting a quality product.

Great review! Thanks. I am thinking about replacing my 8 well used 937D stations with these. I use them to teach soldering to young people at different locations and transporting the bulky stations is a chore. Do they heat fast and maintain temperature OK? I think I will need some short extension cords to make it to the power strips.
