Gas Soldering Irons

Gas soldering irons are portable, usually butane-fuelled versions of the traditional mains-powered soldering irons we've all been familiar with for years. Whereas standard soldering irons tend to rely on trailing a length of cord to a nearby electrical outlet and waiting a few moments for the tool to come fully up to the required temperature, gas soldering irons are fully cordless and more or less instant-heating.

We work with such noteworthy soldering brands as Antex, Weller and Portasol to source our gas-powered portable soldering tools, so you know you'll be getting a product with a substantial user base and a robust reputation in the electrical engineering and general repair trades.

What are the main advantages of a gas soldering iron?

  • Like all soldering irons, butane-powered versions are designed as compact handheld tools that deliver high heat through a specialised metal tip, as a means of melting solder to help it flow into the joints between components and installation surfaces
  • They're extremely common tools in prototyping, electrical circuit building and PCB layout applications, as well as in various metalworking, artistic, pyrographic, workshop, repair and general DIY tasks
  • Gas soldering irons are more flexible in terms of portability and on-the-go working than standard soldering guns, which tend to require a source of nearby mains power and much more work surface space in order to set them aside while powered on and heating up
  • Because they consume gas via a small refillable butane reservoir tank, gas-powered versions are ideal for performing occasional repairs or a handful of smaller jobs, although less economical when settling in to tackle much more prolonged repairs
  • Being cordless not only means that gas soldering irons are fully usable even when there's no access to a power socket, but also that you're much more free to manoeuvre around small, intricate or space-limited work pieces without having to worry about any awkward trailing power cords

We also stock a full range of other handy soldering tool types, including both traditional mains-powered electric models and battery-operated soldering irons, as well as many varieties of soldering gun add-ons, soldering supplies, consumables and accessories.
