Cold Heat

Has anybody tried this? Are there any cons or pros to using this over the conventional soldering iron?

The only iron I'll ever buy. 80watts, so it's superhot for quick, solid battery jobs and such. I've had my current one for 3 years and it's just now wearing out the tip.
Hi cartmen34,
May i know how large for the tip head? 6 or 7 mm? thanks

Not very useful for our purposes if you notice on the commercial they are using very small wire but we use 12-14 gauge wire not the 20 or so gauge they were using.

Cold Heat will be a waste of your money. Save yourself some pain and suffering and get yourself the Hakko 936-12.

wow, is it really that bad? Does the tip wear out really fast or something? I remember that they claim the tip gets up to 900 C in a matter of seconds. Thats hot enough to do the battery connections, right?

Not enough thermal mass to use for any of our connections except soldering switch and reciever connector wires.

Oh ok, so its not for any serious soldering work like we do. Such as motors and batteries with 12awg wires.

thanks

But they do make very nice paper weights.

If you know how it works you would be better off using your 6 cell race pack. It appears to have 2 points and then you put the wire between them and create a short and heat.

oh ok, I get it now. Yeah that does seem kinda crappy. That wouldn't work for our application at all.

I just didn't know how it worked. Looks like a cool little device though.

I'll stick with my soldering irons.

Thanks for the info.
