I know that here a alot of people with hw skills,
I want to buy a soldering iron or a station.
Could you please recomand me one, I see that are a lot of models…
this is the best soldering station I’ve ever tried
What type of work are you planning to do?
For non hot air stuff, you can’t go wrong with the TS100 for ~50€
The usual stuff solder wires, resistors push buttons, without hot air involvement…, no smd or IC
I saw some kits on aliexpress at about 15 dollars…,
I’ve been using a Weller WHS 400 for years super thing. Adjustable temp so you’re not stuck with a certain type of solder (lead-wise).
Saving money on soldering equipment is a very very bad idea, the model @ashthespy and myself recommended is the best soldering iron you can find regarding quality/price ratio.
Look for some reviews (you will find plenty), especially with hacked firmware you will have features that you can usually find in soldering irons 5-10 times more expensive.
What soldering tip should I order as default for ts100 ts-I or ts-b2.
I will order the ts100 but I see I need to chose one tip, what will be OK to choose ts-d24 or ts-b2.
I have read on internet that ts100 has floating voltage on tip and can damage the components… This is true? And how can I fix this?
It’s written in the review, a ground strap is included in the bundle.
I’m using it for months with hacked firmware, no component was damaged so far
