I am thinking of getting a Butane gas powered soldering iron to help
in installing some landscape low voltage lighting.
I was thinking about a Weller P2C or Weller PSI100C.
Anybody used one of these before / have any advice?
They work fine for your application, and are much better than those
wimpy dry cell operated soldering irons, which will barely solder a
twisted joint made from #40 wire. <G>
Try and shield your work from drafts if it's cold and windy out. It's
amazing how much heat a breeze can carry away.
over the years on our amusement games route we have moved away from
the portable butane models and back to the 110v ones. i would use the
lawnmower/snowblower extension cord and a real 110v iron for best
results. or you may borrow the fathers day gift like the neighbor
got, with a car battery jumper/radio/110v outlet gadget, to help with
or, there is a 12vdc soldering iron for your car cigar lighter
