Butane Soldering iron


Recommended Posts

Had a Weller Pyropen Piezo years ago and liked it for a couple of things. One was soldering stuff in other places than my desk where I couldn't be bothered to get the soldering iron and an extension cord. The other was soldering thick speaker cables to drivers/crossovers where I needed more heat than my stationary iron could provide. 

For electrician-type soldering and heat shrink it's probably fine, but I wouldn't use it for electronics. Not only because of the crude temperature control but also because then ones I have seen all seem to eject (very) hot air off to one side. Realistically it's only a matter of time before you turn the iron in a way that means the hot air will damage a board or some parts.
