Weller 30-Watt Soldering Iron Kit Gives Hobbyists And DIYers Versatility
Soldering irons can help electricians, hobbyists, and others with a variety of tasks, like repairing small electrical components or wires. Weller is one of the leaders in the soldering industry, and the Weller soldering iron kit with LED Halo now targets higher visibility.
Weller Soldering Iron Kit with LED Halo: The Big Deal
This soldering iron features an LED halo light on the handle that provides 360° illumination while you work on your projects. It gives you focused, bright light to ensure you have the best lighting for high-quality solder joints. While you can often solder on a benchtop, the additional light makes working on installed components in low-light areas much easier.
Additionally, the tool’s ergonomic pencil grip handle design makes it easy to use in precision applications.
One of the sides bordering the LED halo light is flat, giving you an integrated safety rest that holds the iron when you’re not using it. The handle also features a heat deflector, so it stays cool to the touch while you work.
- Six-second heat up
- Provides continuous, non-stop soldering
Adding 360° light is huge, especially for electricians and techs in the field who can’t always work in ideal conditions. Rather than positioning a work light just right or relying on a headlamp, the soldering iron itself puts light where you need it at an intensity level that’s not going to blind you.Kenny Koehler, Pro Tool Reviews’ Managing Editor
