If you’re taking on an electrical project on your vehicle, you want long lasting joints that won’t let you down. The best way to ensure this is to properly solder your connections.
All of the soldering irons in the range operate on 240 volt power, and range in size from a 30 watt model – ideal for electronic components and thin wires – right up to the 80 watt model – with enough power for heavy gauge wire. Each soldering iron comes with a pointed tip, and a flat tip.
Using the soldering iron is fairly simple, but can take some practice. Plug your soldering iron in and give it a moment to heat up. Then apply a small amount of solder to the tip, and hold the tip against your join – allowing a few moments for the wire to heat. When solder is applied to the join, it should wick through easily.
Also in the range is different sized soldering rolls perfect for different projects!
Lastly, if you are going to be using a hot soldering iron, make sure you grab a soldering iron holder. These are great for keeping the hot tips away from you. They also include a cleaning sponge which is perfect for cleaning the tip after each solder.
