This USB powered temperature controlled soldering iron actually works pretty well. The TS 800 might be a better choice but this is a lot cheaper and does the job just fine￼. I really like the non-temperature controlled USB soldering iron’s that are much cheaper but they don’t have temperature control and this one seems to do the job just great
