TS100 Soldering iron
These are well thought of, so I bought one on AliExpress.
It needs a 20 volt supply (most people use an old laptop brick)
that will give it 3 amps or so, but it will run on as little as 12 volts.
I just takes longer to heat up with lower voltages.
Folks also power them from a 4 pack of LiPo batteries for use in the field.
You can buy a cable with an XT60 connector for use with common RC batteries.
Whatever you use, you will need a 5525 barrel connector to fit into the iron.
Have any comments? Questions?
Drop me a line!
