Adjustable 30W 110V soldering irons are now in stock – This ‘pen-style’ soldering iron is just about the best entry-level tool I’ve seen. It’s not as powerful as a Weller WES51 but it is self-contained and easy to use. With proper care it will last for many years. Turn it off when not in use, clean the plated tip with a sponge (no filing or sanding!) The screwdriver tip is perfect for through-hole soldering and can also do some larger surface mount. Plug is 110 US-style and can only be used in 110V countries. Comes with a very simple flip-up stand which is only marginally useful. Unless you are very careful, a ‘real’ soldering stand is suggested. In the Adafruit store!

But wait, there’s more! Adjustable 30W 220V soldering iron – Plug is 220 Euro-style and can only be used in 220V countries. If you’re in the UK or non-Euro plug country, use a basic plug adapter such as those found in any hardware store. Comes with a very simple flip-up stand which is only marginally useful. Unless you are very careful, a ‘real’ soldering stand is suggested. In the store!
