I bought this battery powered soldering iron from either Lidl or Aldi for only £5 a while ago.
Its actually fantastic.

I was expecting it to take ages to heat up and possibly catch fire.
But its really good!

@samathy
I have the same one as you! What's annoying is that they now have one with a Li-Ion battery for around £8 - wish I'd waited!

@gbrnt ooooOOOOO - I'll keep an eye out for that!

Having wireless soldering irons is so much better than wired ones imo. The freedom of movement is great :D
