I picked up a Hakko last week, all I can say is why didnt I get one sooner! I was able to solder up connectors without burning up the solder, or melting things. Very good tool to have!

Another unit from Circuit Specialists (they have many models), I read a lot of good comments regarding this on electronics sites. Does anyone have any experience with this one?

Reason I ask, is I also have the Hakko 936, which without a doubt is a great performing kit. But compared to my dearly departed Ungar UTC 300, it is bulky and heavy, not the best for packing. I've considered getting one of these for the road, and keeping the 936 in the shop. Would appreciate anyones experience with it.
