Just arrived! The TS80 USB(-C) powered soldering iron. And its pretty fantastic. Sadly its not USB-PD (power delivery), its USB-QC3 (QuickCharge), and double-sad, my USB-C power adapters are all PD.
There’s a great video by Dave Jones (linked below).
Its augmenting (not replacing) my Yotec 936P (pictured below) which is a somewhat questionable unit. I mean, it works, and there is temperature control. But…
Now, soldering irons with firmware. Huh. This makes me think of that Sous-Vide. But, its not Internet connected (yet).
Anyway, watch the Dave Jones review to see more.
