Really good, but not great.
I really like this product, it heats up quickly with a light to let you know it ready, and a light to let you know it's cooling down when you shut it off. The only reason I don't go 5 stars is the size or feeling of the unit. It's slightly awkward in your hand, the head will adjust but the adjustments are not unlimited. You only get 3 positions, they work, but more adjustability would make it great instead of just good.

Would I do it again? ABSOLUTELY!

Handy tool makes my life easier
I don’t know how i ever made it without this I’m 54years old and have been soldering since about 5 years of age went from having to plug in my irons to butane. I and have been using a butane iron for many years since i do a lot of automotive soldering but thats very touchy due to the open flame and heat generated out the side of iron have to be very careful not to burn seats trim and upholstery. I think this is one of the most handy tools of many i have bought in years.
