Same issue as many others

I've had my soldering iron for about a year now and it works flawlessly for small jobs. The last few times I've used it, however, the jobs took a bit longer than in the past and the knurled piece that holds the end started to melt. Once this happened, the tool was useless until it cooled back down and the plastic reset. This piece "should" have been made out of ceramic so the heat wouldn't be wicked off like metal would and it wouldn't melt like it does with it stands right now, I can only use it only really small jobs that take less than 5 mins or so at full heat.

Best Iron I’ve ever owned, with one exception.

My issue is about the same as everyone else’s, my cuff broke and so did the heating element inside. I called my local service center here in town and they too informed me there are no serviceable parts for this. I’ve had this iron less than six months, after seeing these issues in the reviews why has nothing been done to correct this? Why can’t I find spare parts to fix it myself? Seriously not cool, guys. 4/5 for utility and performance, docked a star for poor support and construction.

Love it but falling apart!!

I'm having the same problem a week after I purchased the soldering iron the tip started melting luckily it hasn't melted enough to fall off but every time I need to tighten the tip down I can't because it just spins I ended up super gluing it to keep it and tell they came out with a repair or something

Must have for LED tape light installation

I work in estate homes. This is the best soldering iron I have used. I work in tight spaces and on tall ceilings. Love not having an extention cord 15' in the air. Because I use Flux to clean, and make my connections. I have yet to replace the top. I purchased mine 2 years ago.

I would recommend only buy it with the case. This way it protects the iron. Plus I only use a 3.0 m12 battery or larger. This way I can have it standing to mark so of the more chall connections.

Amazing tool but buy a bigger battery

As a mechanic I do quite a bit of soldering, fixing wiring harnesses, replacing broken plugs, adding after market parts such as light bars and stereo's. Having a soldering iron that heats up this fast without a cord getting in the way is priceless. The only complaint I have is the included battery is a little small for me, but I'm not even going to take away from it's rating for it. 40 minutes is a good amount of time, I just use it a lot. But being able to use high capacity batteries for those longer jobs rocks!
