1x 18v20v max (we have different versions for various brands )portable soldering station with soldering iron and OLED display, rated 50w, perfect for electronic applications. It's based on the powerful and well reviewed T12 console with comprehensive options to setup your own style of standby (duration/activate method), sleep, temp boost, battery low voltage protection etc. So whether you are really serious about soldering or just after a quick plug and work, it covers all sorts of needs, but now without the cord.
It's sold without the batteries, I also have models for other brands available, please check other options.
Some quick facts for your information:
- it's powerful enough to get tin melt in 8 seconds
- it has PID temperature control, and allows you to calibrate it
- it allows you to set and save default temperatures based on different tips
- it allows you to set up sleep/wakeup activation mode
- it allows you to set up standby/sleep temperature
- it has low voltage alarm/cutoff setting to protect your battery
- and for sure, it allows you to setup temperature as you go
- about runtime, with my style of use, a fully charged 5ah battery will last me 4-4.5 hours until it reached the cutoff voltage of 15.8V
The full menu options are as below, but remember you don't necessarily need to touch every option if you don't use it. You could just plug in, set up temperatures, and also the low voltage protection (I recommend go 15.8v which roughly indicates 85% of the battery capacity), than start to work, and adjusting the temperature as you go!
Handy information before you work:
Tin melting point is 183°C, lead-free tin melting point is 227°C, regular welding temperature is 300-380°C depending on what you are working with, but continuous run above 380 degree will significantly damage the tip so you should avoid it unless you really need to. The tips are consumables anyways.
What temperature to use? (These are just indications, it also depends on the type of tip in use.)
- 260 for SMD
- 300 for PCB electronics
- 340 for components with thicker leads
- 380 for heavier work with more mass or heat conduction
(some items have sub menu, and I will attach a user manual with the order for your reference. But with KSGER T12 being a mature and prevalent solution, there are numerous youtube resources that can walk you through the menu if you like to dig further)
- base setup
- standby setup
- sleep setup
- boost setup
- stepping temp
- screen setup
- buzzer setup
- factory reset
- power monitor
- boot screen test
