the 907 iron will work fine, but you will need to add the bigger tip for the best results.

The 908 comes with the larger tip.

I have had my 936 station with the 908 iron for several yrs. now.I dropped my iron and it broke.I packed it up and sent it to Hakko for repairs.I was amazed how fast they got it back fixed.There service is great.I will always buy from Hakko just because of their service..I like the iron holder.It helps keep the iron out of the wind when racing outdoors..
P.S Here is a little tip I learned about the tips..lol ( the wide one)
I have replaced tips on my iron when they get old.What happens to mine is they develop a pit in the middle.So I put the tip in a vise and carefully file it back flat.It really works like a new one when it is filed back flat.I have been using it for a good long while this way.It doubles the life of the tip.Its just a little hot tip I thought I would pass along ..lol
Also Eclectic type solder is some really good solder it flows nicely between batt. bars...

Do you some type of acid flux? I have used my weller iron for about 5 years now with the same tip and it looks brand new. Every time i pick it up or set it back in the holder i wipe it on my wet sponge and it shines like pure silver. keep the tip clean and tinned!

Will the 936 soldering station with the 907 and 900M-T-S3-P tip be ok to solder batteries?

Check out the Hakko 456 as well....perfect for batteries and uses the heavier tips...the only drawback is you have toprovide your own stand.

Most people thatI've seen with the 936 or similar stations end up cranking the heat up 100% anyway.so loss of temperature control shouldn't be ahuge issue

nnick,
the tips you want are

900m-t-3.2d general all around and will do batteries.
you will have to wait a minute or so after each bar.

900m-t-s3 for batteries only. this tip is bigger. hard to solder a esc wires gecause its 5.2mm and esc's are getting so small.

I have also in mind the 2.4 for the smaller surfaces!

I was going to take the
900m-t-s3 for batteries
900m-t-3.2d other solder tasks
900m-t-2.4d escs

Does the list sound ok?

Nick

If anyone is looking for tips for the 907 iron I have a kit of ten tips with multiple types of tips. I mistakenly bought them thinking they would work for the 908 and now I have them and no iron for them. If any one is interested let me know I would like $25.00 shipped for the ten of them, all brand new never used. I could send picture if needed.
Thanks,
Stephen <><

Has anyone purchased a Hakko from
www.EMSCO-USA.com
?

They had an awesome deal on the 936 station (ESD-Black Edition) with 907 iron on sale for $69.99.

So I order it and when I am finished submitting my order the only thing is says on the screen is "Thanks for your order. The Hakko model 936-12 is in stock and will ship immediately".

Typically with online purchases you at least get an email showing your order. I never got an email nor did tt never give me a screen to where I could print off the order transaction.

I am wondering if somehow I bought from them and they thought I was a wholesaler ?
Because when I paid for it they asked for Customer # and/or Order # and I just put N/A and then used my credit card for payment.

They are a division of Hammond Electronics so I feel pretty comfortable owith them.

If anyone is looking for a decent iron this place has them in stock and ships out pretty quick. I ended up buying tips off of them after I found out the tip the unit comes with doesn't work well. One thing I learned about Hakko is that there customer service rocks. Called them one day and asked for information on tips and he pointed me in the right direction and listed about two or four different types. Either way this unit is rock soild. Hard to beat for the money and well worth it! http://www.tequipment.net/Hakko936-12.html

I order the 936 with 907 med. iron and attached some 5.2mm bits for it and it works perfect!
