    Brought this soldering iron to the my job site and put it thru some real world testing.

    Weight (5 stars)
    Shape (5 stars )
    Soldering (As good as a 20 watt corded iron)
    Heat up time till ready to solder (60 seconds), yes it says ready to solder after 20 seconds but I was not able to melt my thin solder at all.
    Run time (0.5W per solder connection on 22 gauge solid wire using the flat tip)
    i.e. with a 1.5A battery, I was able to solder 30 connection with a fully charged battery till the LED flashing low battery, it will probably do a couple more but I never like to run my battery down to the cut off voltage.

    Conclusion :-

    Love this tool, pair it with two batteries and I can solder all the low voltage wires in a house without dragging a long extension cord around the house.

    If you find yourself doing a lot of soldering in a day and the nearest outlet is too far or not available (house under construction), definitely buy this unit.

    Enjoying this tool so far! Heats up very quick – less than 20 seconds. I use it with an XC battery which allows it to stand up nicely for when it is heating up or cooling down. I really like the ability to adjust the angle of the head. Another good value tool for the amount of money.
