    Seems good enough and is a variable temperature, help protect fragile components. Tip cleaning sponges are really hand to get ride of the excess solder.

    Also look at Maplins.

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    I use this type for all my led projects and they work fine. The first one I bought only lasted 9 months so got another recently.

    The tips don't last that long but then again I do a lot of soldering. Get spare tips just in case.

    If I had the cash I would go for a more advanced one at around 80 quid but for the moment the type you mentioned will do the job.

    HTH's

    P.S what do you intend to solder with it?

    Am liking the price and features, even if it isn't going to be a tool offering a massive lifespan. For what it does and the use I'm likely to give it. I'm buying one so thanks dippy27
