The €35,- KSGER T12 Soldering Station – is it any good?

 

At the model railway club (EMV) we needed a soldering station that is suited for delicate soldering jobs like SMDs or PCBs but that can also handle heavier work. I came across the KSGER T12 Soldering Station which can be had for about €35,-.

Is it any good? Short answer: I like it a lot! Watch the video to see if you may like it too.

Some features if the KSGER T12 soldering station:

  • Uses T12 tips of which many different types are available for different jobs
  • Ready to solder in just about 6 seconds!
  • PID control with settings per tip type for accurate and stable control
  • Temperature adjustable between 150 – 480 °C
  • Quick select from 5 different temperature setpoints
  • Grip has a motion sensor to monitor if it is in use
  • Standby mode: lower temperature when grip did not move for x minutes
  • Sleep mode:  room temperature when grip again did not move for x minutes
  • Boost mode: higher temperature for x minutes
  • Beeps when temperature is reached or when boost, standby or sleep mode starts
