Default Tamiya 7.2V Soldering Iron

Does anyone know where I can get hold of 1 or more Tamiya 7.2V soldering Irons? I come from New Zealand and they are not available anymore.

Does it have to be Tamiya....I got one last week from Galtech models in Palmerston North the brand is Promax.

Heres a link to the model concerned it's the same as the one I've just got.

Mabuchi 540: this one is quite different to the Tamiya one and I don't think as good.
Yes I think it does need to be a Tamiya one

Maybe but you can't get the Tamiya one for $9.95 now can you lol? And is the Tamiya one really that much better?

nicad, litium, nimh any power supply with 7.2V will do

nicd 2400 can run about 20 minutes if keep soldering. it will cut off to avoid overheat if left for long time..

i keep it on on my pulsar 3 hours the longest.

Default Butane soldering iron

Yeah for $19.99 at radio shack you can get a butane iron (cordless) they have a fully adjustable temp range from around what would be 20W-80W on a AC/DC iron they work great!
