Reviews of the Best Soldering Irons in the USA

    March 02, 2014

 Price range

Price for simple soldering pencils in the USA is in range 10-30 $. These soldering pencils are good only for do-it-yourself jobs. We recommend Weller SP23LK soldering iron from this category.

Price for good soldering irons on the USA market (including soldering irons that have very accurate electronic temperature control) is in range 70-150 $. This type of soldering irons comes with power station and controls for setting desired temperature. Station automatically keeps the iron tip at an appropriate temperature. Some models have digital display to show the current temperature of iron tip. These soldering irons are used for fine, precise work. We recommend Weller WES51, WESD51 (with digital display), and Hakko FX-888 soldering irons from this category.

Price for professional soldering system (rework and repair) is in wide range 250- 2500 $. This soldering system usually comes with bench station and 3 or 4 hand pieces including temperature controlled soldering pencil, hot air gun, de-soldering gun and thermo–tweezers (thermo–tweezers is an excellent tool for removing surface-mount resistors and capacitors). These soldering systems are recommended if you need to use a soldering tool regularly. From this category, we recommend Aoyue 2702 soldering station which is an excellent soldering station for most of fine soldering and de-soldering projects and much more expensive Pace MBT-250 soldering station for top professinal soldering needs.
