This small portable soldering iron heats up in seconds. It’s only 33 g in weight and 16.5 cm long. The temperature is displayed on the OLED screen, which can be adjusted from 100 °C to 400 °C accurately and easily. You can adjust the temperature very conveniently just by pressing the buttons on the handle.
When the iron is idle for too long (3 mins) it enters Sleep mode automatically (it has an accelerometer with STM32 processor), in which it lowers the temperature to 200 °C. This prevents dry heating that could oxidize the tip, prolongs the life span of soldering head, and helps save your electricity. When you hold it up again, it will detect the movement and raise the temperature. If you don’t use the soldering iron longer than the sleep time plus the idle time (9 minutes total), it will go into standby mode. You can adjust the time after which the device goes into sleep mode by connecting it to your PC and changing its configuration.
To power up the iron you should use a 12 V to 24 V power supply. The DC5525 power connector is compatible with DC 12-24 V Laptop AC Adapter / Power Bank / car power.
Different power supplies will get different results when it comes to heat up time:
You may see some smoke during the first usage, which is normal and occurs only because the electrical elements are heating.
Please note the handle temperature can rise up to 50-60 °C if the soldering iron continues working for 40 minutes at the temperature of 350 °C.
NOTE: Power adaptor is NOT included.
