I keep seeing an advertisement on t.v. for this new cordless soldering tool. It seems pretty cool. Just wanted to know if anyone here has one or knows if its any good. It saids goes from 0-800 deg instantly. then is cold again instantly.

seems like it uses some sort of U.V. technology. i dont know how it could get that hot instantly when in contact with solder then cold again instantly. it would be cool to have handy at the field.

Yeah, it might be cool if you ever receive it. I ordered mine Sept 8 and it still hasn't came yet. I called the other day and they said another 3-4 weeks. BS I tell ya..... I want to cancel it.....but it was ordered as a bday gift so I'll just wait.

My partner got one and for small work it is OK but if you are trying to join large wires it's not as good as a soldering iron. It's like a little electric welding torch. When you touch the material that you are going to solder it gives a little arc.

It's hard to hit the auto s/w

I got one at Radio Shaft for $20. It works pretty well, once you get the technique down. I like it because i don't have to worry about burning the place down. It's fine for RC stuff and other electronics. And you can take it to the field. I'll give it 5 out of 5 rotor blades

I didn't mention that last time I used an old style soldering iron it almost burnt my finger tips off. I tried picking it up by the shiny end! Yikes I love Cold Heat!

I ran a Google search on this and found a good review. But then I ran a search in the newsgroups and came up with a few reviews, from real folks, that went like this:

Cold Heat

Don't think I would trust a $1500 - 2000 heli with an improperly soldered link in my electronics!! Just does'nt compute! I'll stick with the tried and true methods even though they may not be as convienient!!

Just a little more info on "cold heat". It acts kinda like a welding outfit. You complete a circuit with the area on a circuit board or solder held against the split tip of the iron. You can see a small arc when touching the tip to a circuit board. This means you probably do not need to use "cold heat" when static sensitive components are present.

I think this should read you shouldn't use cold heat with static sensitive components.

Yes, you're right. But I'm from South Alabama (LA, lower alabama) and I don't got the bestest grammer.

Bottom line, DON'T use the cold heat on electronics.

Howzdat??

The tip consists of two pieces of hard carbon with an insulator in between. It does,nt conduct heat very well, so it stays relatively cool. It does conduct current and gets hot through resistive heating at the tip.
Good for small wattage work.
