Another melted collar
You'd think after so many people have the same problem with the collar melting, that Milwaukee would redesign it to be more resistant to melting. And make it a serviceable part as it is removable. Other than that it was a great 12v soldering iron.

Melting collar
I’m an avid hobbyist and love the cordless aspect. However after a few uses the collar started to melt, and like in other reviews once it’s hot And you apply a little pressure the whole tip moves. Very disappointed. What’s even more disappointing is it’s not a serviceable part.

Broken after a month
Preforms great for small soldering jobs and very happy with the overall idea of this tool. But after only a month of use on small soldering jobs, the plastic holding the tip melted and now the tip won't securely tighten. Worst yet when you apply any light pressure on the tip makes it move and the whole tip and heating element broke. I strictly use Milwaukee for my company and this did not hold up to Milwaukee standards.

Third time I used it Melted
I loved it till the plastic collar melted after just the third time using it, just like other people noted. Brand new & never dropped.

Almost perfect!
I solder daily either in the shop or on a job site. This iron is amazing! Feels good in the hand, heats up quick and last a decent amount of time. My only problem is there are only two available styles of tips and you can’t use other standard tips with this iron. For the work I do I could really use some other common styles of tips especially a ultra fine tip.
