5 devices and systems that will help you work

Here are the specifications of the device:

  • Power: 65W
  • Power interface: 5.5 x 2.5
  • Working voltage: DC12-24V, (positive inside, outside – negative)
  • Working current: ≥ 1.5A
  • Temperature range: 220-400℃
  • Tip Type: SH-B2 / SH-BC2 / SH-C4 / SH-D24 / SH-I / SH-K / SH-KU
  • Handle dimensions: 110 x 16 x 15 mm
  • Sting dimensions: 115 x 5.5 mm
  • Weight: 28g
  • Package dimensions: 165 x 85 x 22 mm
  • Package weight: 60 g

The cost of a soldering iron on Aliexpress is only about $10. True, the stings are not very cheap, but still this is one of the most inexpensive and versatile options.

And this is professional equipment that costs more than almost any soldering iron. This is a soldering station with heating to the desired temperature in just 1-2 seconds and a power of 120 watts. An ideal tool for micro soldering, where high precision is required, since here the tips are miniature, and the soldering iron handle is very small.

  • Station power 300 W
  • Soldering iron power 85 W
  • Input voltage AC 220 V, 50 Hz
  • Temperature range 200°C – 500°C
  • Temperature stability ± 1°C
  • Resistance between earth electrode and lug < 1 Ohm
  • Potential between earth electrode and lug < 25 mV
  • Temperature unit °C and °F
  • Temperature retention
  • up to 3 options
  • There is a standby mode
  • Anti-static protection is
  • There is a sound warning
  • Temperature lock yes

One of our team members got this station recently. So far, the overall impression is very positive. This station is not suitable for large soldering points, but for micro soldering it is really an ideal tool. Or close to perfect.

Cost – $ 200-300, depending on the place of purchase. In addition, microstings cost a lot too. True, those that are in the kit are suitable for most of the work. But there are additional stings that are worth purchasing.

This is a hot air soldering station, let’s say, of an average level. A soldering iron is also supplied with it, which is connected to the connector on the station. It is not bad, but it is the possibility of soldering with hot air that deserves attention.

The advantage of the station is its small size. It is small, unlike the larger professional stations. The device is not bad, suitable for both beginners and pros. Cost – from $150 to $200, depending on the place of purchase.

Here are the specifications of the device:

  • hot air gun:
  • Power: 650W;
  • Air flow: 120 l/min;
  • Temperature regime: 100° – 480°С;
  • Display type: LCD;
  • Soldering iron:
  • Power: 75W;
  • Temperature regime: 200° – 480°С;
  • General:
  • Power consumption: 720 W;
  • Dimensions: 26 x 16.5 x 14.8 cm;
  • Weight: 2.6 kg;
  • Operating temperature conditions: 0° – 50°С;
  • Temperature storage conditions: – 20 ° – 80 ° С;

The force of the air flow is regulated by a brushless fan that accelerates the air up to 120 l / min. Station YIHUA 995D+ has three memory channels for frequently used settings.

In general, a reliable station that works exactly as the manufacturer claims. There are no complaints about it, one of our employees has been using the device for a couple of years.


One of the most popular models among hot air soldering stations. Its official name is a microprocessor-controlled assembly and desoldering station. The body of the device is metal, the station is durable, although, accordingly, it is heavy. She has both a hot air dryer and a soldering iron. In addition, there is a smoke absorber with a filter – all this is built into the housing. The soldering iron handle is paired with a smoke absorber that sucks in the acrid smoke generated during the soldering process.

A hair dryer and a soldering iron maintain the set temperature very accurately, which is important for boards that are sensitive to high temperatures.

The cost of the station on average is about $250.

Station characteristics:

  • Type soldering station
  • Type of heating intermittent
  • Electric heating system
  • Supply voltage 220 V
  • Power consumption 35 W
  • Minimum operating temperature 200 °C
  • Maximum operating temperature 480 °С
  • Ceramic soldering iron heating element
  • Dimensions 188x126x250 mm
  • Weight 5 300 g

To protect the heating element of the hot air gun, automatic cooling is provided after the station is turned off. Hairdryer and soldering iron are equipped with temperature sensors.

So, well, that’s all for today. It would be interesting to hear what tools you use for soldering. Perhaps there are more interesting solutions? Let’s discuss in the comments.
