    If you want a reliable soldering station -iron, get one like this it will do a better job than many other products in the class.
    Toy looking like device and pretty expensive.

    Watched 101 videos of how to solder in order to try and find out why I was so useless.
    Little joy, so I decided to try a quality iron; and it worked.
    Very pleased

    You have to Google for the instruction manual to understand the secrets of how to set the temperature and preferences. Personally I think adding a 3rd or 4th button would have been more intuative. All that said once you have managed to set the temperature you want it’s a great soldering iro

    Very well built works perfectly heats up very quickly even from cold the interface is a little strange but it works it’s the best soldering iron I have ever used.
    I have bought several before this one and they were Chinese junk that works for a few times and and must have spent the same amount of money them before ponying up for this one I wish I had bought this one in the first place.

    This is by far one of the best soldering stations on the market, and after seeing other use it I decided to bit the bullet and buy one for myself. I can genuinely say that it’s fantastic. My only wish is that it looked less like a toy and more like a professional bit of kit, but that might be my personal preference perhaps. Good buy overall!

    Going from a cheap 10 iron that took more than 10 seconds to melt solder, to this Hakko set was something I wish I did earlier. Soldering now is much easier and more enjoyable. It certainly isn’t cheap, but it is a mid-priced soldering kit which I would gladly recommend to people who solder often.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersThis is honestly the best soldering iron I’ve ever owned. If you solder electronics any more frequently than a few times a year, then it is definitely worth getting this.

    I went through a stream of other soldering irons from cheap Chinese no-names and up to Antec. I was fed up of tips dissolving, temperature being all over the place, tips coming loose with the slightest bit of pressure, collars melting and even entire irons falling apart in my hands.

    So out of frustration I decided to spend a bit more and got this Hakko… Wow!

    The temperature is feedback controlled. If I dial it down to 320 degrees C, I can solder chip pins without cooking them. The tip is solid and doesn’t dissolve. The base is chunky and holds the iron well. The grip is an excellent heat insulator but is also antistatic. I have been able to easily solder surface mount components.

    The only reason I hesitated buying the Hakko was because it looks toy plasticy. However it’s actually a really solid unit and the solder mount is all metal. They’ve just decided to go for glossy bright paint.

    I spent a while looking for a solder station and in the end purchased the Hakko. I must admit I am very happy with the purchase – it cheats up quickly, holds heat well and when you confirm the presets (after turning them on as the default is off) its easy to change temperature. The build is very good and its small enough not to get in the way. I was thinking of the Weller WE1010 however after looking at some YouTube videos I thought the Hakko was better built. I am not disappointed so would recommend this station for anyone who needs a decent iron.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersWell-made, with a comfortable iron, flexible silicon lead, good range of bits and excellent temperature range, particularly at the vital low end. The user interface is just a joke however. Cut out the instructions, glue them to a piece of card and keep them propped up by the station if you want to use the pre-sets, recalibrate (“adjust”) the temperature, or even just change it. No, the “Up” button does not mean raise the temperature! If you get it wrong you will inadvertently alter the calibration of the instrument. IIDRTFI.

    There are slightly better soldering irons at many times the price, and there are ones which are somewhat cheaper and vastly inferior. In terms of day to day usability, in addition to factors such as readily available spares and tips etc, hard to beat at this price.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersHad this for 3 months and used it lightly over that time to build a few circuits and repair a few guitars.
    Turned it on today and got an S-E error.
    Took the handle apart to check the tip to find the heating element snapped in half.
    Extremely disappointed after wanting one of these for so long and hearing such good things.
    Had much cheaper irons last a hell of a lot longer and take a lot more punishment.
    Hoping the seller / manufacturer will resolve this under warranty.

    UPDATE – updating my review because I knew all along this was the standard when it comes to solder stations. Amazon were snappy in replacing my broken unit and since then I’ve had many happy months of soldering and am benefitting from the well renowned quality of this solder station.

    Don’t look any further this is the one you want.

    I am a newbie to electronics and totally new to soldering. After reading some of the mixed reviews for cheaper soldering irons I chose this one. Well made, very quickly heats up and retains the tip heat. Easy to change tips. Consult the manual before you change settings. This iron has made soldering easy for me – so for me it is worth the higher price. Should last a lifetime (hopefully!)

    Bonjour,
    Mon commentaire n’est pas celui d’un professionnel et n’a pas pour vocation vous apporter un avis reposant sur une longue exprience des stations de soudage de trs grande qualit. Je disposais jusqu’ prsent d’un fer a souder des plus classique. Une plombe pour chauffer et aprs on y va pour faire du mieux qu’on peut , je vous pargne le reste. Je me suis dis une station pourquoi pas. Mon choix s’est arrt sur cette hakko aprs des heures d’investigations sur le net. Distribue principalement dans des pays non francophone cela n’a pas t facile vu mon niveau d’anglais.
    Que du bonheur c’est juste une merveille pas besoin d’en dire plus : chauffe super vite, lment composant la station de trs grande qualit …
    Alors oui, il existe de nombreuses contrefaons chinoise. Certain tuto sur la Tube vous explique de faon clair et prcise comment les distinguer en allant jusqu’ les ouvrir pour cela (ps: n’hsitez pas le faire c’est trs simple). Celle acquise sur Amazon est une authentique Hakko FX-888D en ce qui me concerne, et j’ai pass un max de temps pour tout vrifier sans rien laiss au hasard. Ce serait a refaire j’y retourne les yeux ferms … foncez.
    N’oubliez pas l’adaptateur prise UK –> prise FR.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersApprently Hakko make two of these stations an orginal and one made in China. (This review is for the more expensively made original one)
    I have had quite a few soldering stations and they have all disappointed. I got the HAKKO FX-888D Soldering Station, 70W, AC, 26V after reading some great reviews. I was a little put off by how it looked ( kind of like a toy ) but after using it all my fears were set aside. The soldering jobs were much easier for me to do than ever before.
    It reaches selected heat setting very quickly and is very nibble to use. I suppose the only criticism is I wish it had come with a selection of interchangeable solder heads. In any event the solder heads are quite easy to buy in whatever sizes you will need later on.

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersI bought this as the cheaper irons I’ve had before just weren’t cutting it for me. I needed something that would work straight away with ease to save time on repairs, and I got that with this little beauty. Its amazing, it heats up in seconds and also the main reason I bought it was for the awesomely fast thermal recovery.

    It truly does bring back the temperature much much quicker than any cheaper iron on the market. The tip it comes with is great, but I do suggest you buy more genuine tips to deal with other types of repair work. It also comes with a maximum of 5 presets which makes it easier to switch between temperatures and it also has the capability to set a password to protect the station from thieves and little ones if they manage to get into the repair room.

    The station itself is surprisingly heavy and sturdy, extremely well built. The iron is comfortable to hold and the 2m heat resistant cable gives you great freedom of movement.

    All in all I’m completely happy with this Hakko FX888D, it’s expensive but designed to last a VERY long time.

    Don’t waste your time and money on cheaper alternatives, they just don’t cut it the way the hakko does.

    Very happy, thank you Hakko for creating this masterpiece. I just wish they still made the analogue version, maybe someday they’ll bring that option back, who knows.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersExcellent soldering iron, the options the review gave me to rate were, warmth value for money and thickness.

    As for warmth it’s very warm and you can also adjust the warmth to get the best soldering performance. The tip it comes with isn’t the best for anything other than intricate soldering jobs, but the tips are easy to come by and the cheapo ones you get for the Chinese solder stations work fine. As for its thickness well it’s pretty solid and the grip is nice so for thickness I have it five stars. Value for money is also 5 stars. It sells out quick when it’s in stock so get a we alert or add it to your basket.

    Como indica la foto, esta estacin de soldadura viene con clavija inglesa que incorpora el fusible de 13A. Cost un poco de esfuerzo, pero consegu integrar el fusible dentro una clavija de tipo schuko.
    Si sobrevive a la garanta y un da se quema el fusible integrar un portafusibles en la carcasa.
    Calienta rpido y para nivel aficionado est recomendado como muy bueno. Es fcil seleccionar la temperatura.

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersThis soldering station is one of the best purchases I have made for my home lab. It’s reliable, heats up quickly and maintains a generous thermal capacity when compared to products of a similar level within the market.

    The outstanding build quality sets the benchmark for what a robust soldering station should feel like. Everything feels solid and the painted, cast metal dock for the iron is substantial enough to remain in place whilst cleaning the tip, so no more sliding around the bench! Storing the brass wire cleaning balls in the iron holder is a nice (and convenient) touch. The iron itself is also extremely comfortable to use for long periods without major hand fatigue setting in.

    The tips don’t heat us as fast as the newer direct heat irons but unless you are someone who is soldering a joint every second, or is soldering onto exceptionally large ground planes, it will make little difference. From room temperature to 350c takes about 25 seconds or so and the station has a working range between 50-480c.

    The conical tip that comes with the station doesn’t possess much thermal capacity, so I would recommend acquiring a 2mm (or larger) bevel, chisel or hoof tip to set you on your way. While the official tips are much more expensive than the cloned tips, there is a considerable difference in the performance and tolerances of the product. I tried out some cheap tips a while ago and while they seemed reasonable for the first couple of uses, I noticed some of the more eclectic tips had a miserable thermal capacity. The cheap J & K series tips had a temperature differential of 90 between the display of station and the value I was reading with a soldering iron thermometer at the irons tip — meaning that I would have to turn offset temperature of the station up to almost maximum in order to get 350c. I’m not willing to do this in order to save a few pounds on tips, so from now on only official ones for me!

    The only significant downside I can see is the user interface is overly convoluted. To conserve space, Hakko have made some odd choices in regard to how the temperature of the station is adjusted and pre-sets are selected, which some people may find off putting. I generally solder at one temperature for most things (350c) so it isn’t an issue that I have been butting heads with frequently, but anyone who likes to solder at multiple temperatures may find this awkward or even annoying while the learning curve is climbed.

    Is this soldering station expensive? Yes and no. It is a significant purchase and priced at perhaps four times the cost of a cheap clone station, but you are paying Hakko reliability and quality. I have no doubt that this station will last me 10 years or more. There is a reason why so many of the inexpensive soldering stations you can buy from various companies online are either direct clones of the legacy Hakko 936 stations or the companies gained their start making such copies. Hakko are the best, without a doubt.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersJams haba usado una estacin de soldadura (por su precio, siempre han sido productos relativamente caros, para mi), as que siempre he “tirado” del tpico soldador. Hace un par de semanas vi un vdeo de una persona que recomendaba este producto y me anim a comprarlo.

    He de decir que es impresionante la diferencia a la hora de soldar, ahora me atrevo con todo, grandioso producto, rebosa calidad por todos los sitios y a un precio espectacular. No tiene nada que ver soldar SMDs con este soldador, jams me imagin que me iba a atrever con chips SMD. El precalentamiento es casi inmediato, no ms de 30 segundos (comparado con los casi 3 o 4 minutos de un soldador convencional no tiene nada que ver), la temperatura de la punta de soldadura es constante y calienta mucho mejor las pistas y los pines de los componentes que los soldadores de lpiz de toda la vida.

    Lo que no entiendo es cmo no he comprado este producto antes (el desconocimiento). 100% recomendado.

    Very nice iron. A big step up from an unbranded 40 station bought elsewhere a few years ago that gave nothing but trouble.

    Some people have complaints about the user interface (i.e. set one digit at a time) but personally I find it quicker to set to a desired temperature than other stations that have both up and down buttons. Individual preference I guess.

    Also the plug is fitted with a 13A fuse so it would be prudent to change it to something more appropriate (1A or 3A max).

    Golden Review Award: 8 From Our UsersQuite simply the best soldering iron I’ve ever owned. Yes – it’s eye-wateringly expensive compared to most on the market but it’s worth it. Amazingly fast heat up time, rock-solid temperature control and most importantly, and iron that fits well in the hand and is very controllable as a result. I’m about 3 months in with this now, and still appreciate it every time I use it.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersUp until now, I have made do with the cheapish soldering iron with power cord attached, and no temp control.
    The difference is like night and day. Turning it on, seeing how quickly it gets to temperature, being able to use it almost immediately, I don’t know why I didn’t buy something like this years ago.

    My only suggestion from a personal preference is don’t use the supplied point tip, get a Hakko chisel type, in my opinion these ate 100 times easier to solder with (and probably best to splash out the few extra on an actual Hakko tip rather than a cheap non branded one).

    Le seul “dfaut” (mais je le savais), ce sont les rglages pas trs intuitifs et le manuel d’instructions compliqu et incomplet (aussi bien version papier fourni avec l’appareil, que version internet sur le site de HAKKO); entre autres il manque la procdure de validation des modifications pour qu’elles soient enregistres.

    Llega a la temperatura deseada en pocos segundos, los 450 por ejemplo tarda unos 15 20 segundos en alcanzarla.

    Mantiene siempre la misma temperatura, algo muy importante.

    Hakko es sinnimo de calidad as que espero que me dure muchos aos.

    Para encontrar puntas no hay problemas pues son muy comunes.

    Yo la compr “vendido y enviado por Amazon” y trae clavija inglesa, como la que se muestra en la imagen que hay ahora mismo. Lo bueno es que se puede sustituir por una clavija espaola fcilmente pues solo trae un tornillo el cual aflojas y se separan las dos partes, pudiendo ahora quitar los cables que van tambin atornillados y ponerlos en una clavija espaola. Es lo que he hecho yo.

    Golden Review Award: 19 From Our UsersLe station de soudure Hakko 888 est une legende. Cette version dite “d” pour digital remplace le bouton de reglage de temperature par un ecran LCD qui permet de voir la temperature mesuree sur la panne, vis a vis du reglage. On peut l’utiliser en mode “simple” avec une temperature que l’on regle, ou bien avoir trois reglages stockes en memoire et basculer entre (pour les soudures 60/40 plomb a temperature plus basse que l’etain RoHS par ex.). On peut facilement regler en Celcius ou Farenheit, choisir le mode d’utilisation, etc.

    Premier point important : il s’agit ici d’un import anglais, donc la prise est anglaise. Ce qui pour moi est un plus. En effet, la prise anglaise contient un fusible. Donc cette version permet, par rapport a la version “europe” d’avoir un fusible des la prise electrique. Bien qu’on puisse la demonter et adapter une prise europeenne, je recommande donc d’acheter, avec cette Hakko, un adapteur UK->EU ce qui permet de brancher l’appareil, et continuer a beneficier de l’avantage du fusible dans la prise.

    Second point important : ce classique est tres copie par les chinois. Il faut donc faire attention a bien acheter une veritable Hakko, pour ne pas se retrouver a manipuler un appareil branche sur le 220V et qui n’a pas le niveau de protection et securite d’une vraie Hakko. La partie grise du manche de panne est relie a la masse au-travers de l’appareil, et pour avoir du de fausses Hakko etre demontees sur Youtube, il faut faire attention. Ici, nous avons une veritable Hakko : la presence de la piece aluminium dans le receptable (absent de la copie chinoise). Les etiquettes au-dessous qui sont conformes (la copie n’a rien a voir). Le cable de la panne qui est ici du silicone tres souple et resistant a plusieurs centaines de degres si on pose le bout de la panne dessus par erreur. Tout est parfait, et il s’agit bien de la version originale.

    Attention : sur l’une de mes photographies je montre le type d’adapteur qu’il vous faut : ce dernier n’est PAS fourni avec l’appareil et il faut le commander en plus sur Amazon. En utiliser un permet de beneficier du fusible integre dans la prise anglaise, atout de securite !

    L’appareil vient avec une panne a pointe fine. C’est bien pour souder sur des plaques de test ou de la petite soudure, mais il faut penser a prendre une pointe Hakko plate/bisautee qui sera plus pratique et adaptee. Attention a bien prendre de vraies pannes Hakko qui sont en cuivre, recouvertes d’acier fin et recouvertes de Chrome sur le corps sauf la pointe qui recoit l’etain. Les pannes d’origine Hakko sont a plus de 10 euro mais leur construction est elaboree et permet d’avoir un excellent comportement de soudure (et pas besoin de calibrer l’appareil…).

    Manuel d’instruction anglais/francais/allemand + notice supplementaire explicative.

    Une vraie Hakko, mais prise anglaise donc n’oubliez pas l’adaptateur (conservez le fusible anglais !) et une petite panne bisautee/plante de 2 mm environ pour completer le tout.

    La vraie Hakko (attention prise anglaise)

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersThis soldering station is very well made. The iron tip heats up to 310 deg C in 35 seconds and the whole feel of the kit is of a very high quality. The stand works well, as does the cleaning arrangement and sponge. The solder tips stay clean if looked after and the whole soldering experience is much better than with the old cheap kit I have used in the past. Makes soldering a pleasure not a chore!

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersThe real deal . However the coating on the tip has started to come off . I looked after it I promis . Used tip tinner every time. May be my habit of using the wet spunge every time could be thermal shocking it but iv only used it 8 times. Love the stand . If you got antex with silicone wire plus good stand would cost about 55 so think it’s worth the extra for a proper station . Only problem is I can’t find an easy supply of spunges to fi

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our Users5 stelle per la stazione saldante, ma 3 per il cavo con spina anglosassone!!
    2 per il costo leggermente superiore all’importatore ufficiale del marchio.
    Ma siccome mi occorreva subito mi sono appoggiato ad Amazon.
    Con 1,99 euro ho cambiato la spina e risolto.
    I 20 euro in pi pagati non cambiano il giudizio sul prodotto, veramente ottimo, stabile e potente, velocissimo nel raggiungere la temperatura impostata. Veramente un gran prodotto. Velocissima la spedizione, 48 ore dall’ordine era in azienda nelle mie mani.
