Default The better portable soldering iron 1up vs. MPS

Anyone have experience with both the My Pit Space soldering station and the 1up Racing soldering iron (or the TS100 iron it is based with or without the updated firmware)? Thoughts on which is better?

So I purchased the 1up iron and it works good. Using from your power supply it seems to not be able to keep the heat at 840 while soldering motor wires. The 1up no longer supplys a ac power supply buuuuuut if you go to amazon they have one that is oerfect for 14.99. works great. I like the small compact size of the iron and the small kit case you get with it.
Amazon Amazon

If you get a 12v to 24v 3a step up on Amazon for $11-12 it will stay hot when you plug it into your 12v power supply.

The mps soldering iron is awesome I won mine at the champs and it works flawlessly plug it in to power supply and it's ready in about 10 seconds holds heat great and u can contact the builder directly through email or Facebook for customer support don't get any better then that. Best thing is he's a racer just like we are not some big company that doesn't car about the little guy so mps all the way my 2cents

Hands down the best portable solder iron is the milwaukee tool m12 solder iron. In a small bag I carry the m12 solder iron, m12 screw driver, m12 dremel tool. All share the same battery and all work just like their plug in the wall counterparts. The m12 solder iron is very good and you can adjust it to 90 degrees and it stands on its own freeing up a hand.
