ECG J-045-DS 45 Watt Desoldering Iron
ECG J-045-DS 45 Watt Desoldering Iron is rated 4.4167 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from UmmmmWith a little practice it works well for SOME applications. There is only one tip, so very small connections and rather large ones are out of the question, it will simply not do them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best for the price but cheapThis thing does the job better than braids or separate solder suckers, but that doesn't mean it's ideal.For me the biggest deficit is the extremely cheesy stand. On a crowded desk it's very easy to accidentally knock this thing off the stand starting a fire. And it won't fit into my standard weller stand.It works well but doesn't work miracles. I soldered some XLR connectors and it did get most of the solder out but there was still some solder plugging the connection holes.The radio shack version seems to be the same for less at this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tool everI was skeptical about this, thinking that maybe it'd get clogged, wouldnt have adequate suction, etc. But this desoldering iron makes removing components from a circuit board easy. I'd previously only used desoldering braid, but a friend asked me to replace three broken potentiometers on a Fender amp he owns. I figured desoldering braid would be too difficult for the multiple attachment points on the snap-on pots, so I bought this tool thinking it'd be a good opportunity to learn to use it. Got it yesterday and decided to practice on an old circuit board. Well, after removing exactly ONE solder point I knew I didn't need to practice anymore. This is extremely easy to use, straightforward and foolproof. I went right to the Fender amp and removed all three broken pots in less than six, seven minutes. Cleanly, efficiently, fully. I really am amazed. What a great tool, thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must haveGreat product, it's a must have in everyone's tool box. I repair car amps and this is great, cleaning the board up was so much faster with this because you have two tools in one. Get it you won't be sorry. Go ahead and pick up extra tips because just in case your working on a project and if the tip gets messed up you never know, that way it don't slow you down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enough Power to desolder most parts...This tool is powerful enough to desolder most parts.I am removing PCB mounted encoders from boards that have two mounting tags, so each encoder has 3 leads plus the two larger tags to desolder.I have used it everyday for about 10 days for about 4hours per day. It would be perfect for anyone wanting to de-solder the occasional part or two.The only drawback for me is the life of the desolder nozzles and the availability of different sizes... I have gone through 4 nozzles in this 10 day period. Perhaps its the Lead free solder that I am using but the nozzles seem to wear out pretty quickly.To give you more detail, one nozzle has lasted me about 600 joints. I use the older nozzle with the enlarged hole to desolder larger items and get more use out of it that way.Dont get me wrong, this is a great tool if you occasionally have the odd component or two to desolder. I would buy it again for its ease of use and great value. Buy an extra pack of nozzles just in case!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ReMs62This desoldering iron works much better than I thought it would. I have been using it on tightly populated boards, and have had great success removing IC's. One piece of advice is buy several extra tips as they tend to degrade if you use the iron as much as I do.
