If you are looking for a hobbyiste/maker soldering station, this product would be appropriate and would allow you to make soldering and repairing more intensively.
This iron is suitable for general electronic application and for reparing operations.
The LED indicates when the station is powered. The tip is warn with a ceramic heater wich offer efficient tip heathing
The iron holder can be moved anywhere around the solder iron. This would we welcome for right and left hand writer.
This soldering station offer a good price/quality rate for a raisonnable price.
It is a good alternative for smaller budget, even if it's not a professional Weller soldering station (wich cost 350+ EUR).
Simple, robust and efficient, this iron will do the job without complaining.

48W is a lot of power
We do recommend a lower "power" iron if you are starting with electronic soldering. A 15 Watt iron is perfect for starting (like our Weller SP15N and Weller SPI16). Remermber that the calorific power (15 Watt or 48 Watt) exchange heat power with the component you are trying to solder. The electronic components are not able to dissipate such quantity of power (from electronic point of view).
There is more risk to destroy (overheat) your components with à 48W iron than with a 15W iron. You will need to wotrk faster with a 48W iron... to communicate less energy (quantity of heat) to the component.
This is the raison why we do recommend à 15W iron for beginner... this offer you more time to to solder the component before they overheat.
