Prob a few years, depending on the capacitor quality. Wouldn't be a terrible idea to replace the capacitors every year or two. Unless you melt internal connectors (I have done this), knock off...

The above route by Minh is a pretty good option, it uses knockoff Hakko T12/T15 direct-drive tip cartridges which deliver more heat than any of the 936 clones, or the ToAuto iron above. The use of an...
