Bought it for my husband, he loved it a lot!
I like that it gets hot very quickly, holds the temperature and is very portable. It's very nice to use.
The Rabbit Whisperer
The product did not do well soldering trailer harness wires. The trigger is fatiguing to light and hold open while you are soldering. Since you have to hold it open to solder one slip and your peice is cooling down while you reignite. The device heated fine but the chisel tip temp was hard to regulate. As far as shrink tubing it did not do a very even job. This item was just not worthwhile as a portable soldering iron on this application. I got out a drop cord and my electric pencil soldering iron - no problem. I am not sure whether to recommend it as a portable soldering iron. It might work well on some jobs. It was somewhat better heating shrink tubing. It does provide other utility so I am upgrading my original rating. I do like the kit: case, solder, sponge, and the tips provided.
Great soldering iron with lots of attachments.
Pretty good as most reviews say but because of either poor temperature control or cheap tip materials, the tips burn out way too fast. turned it on to tin the tip and it burned out the first time i used it. Otherwise would give 5 stars but hard to do because tips need to be more durable.Edit: Lexivon seller reached out to me and resolved the issue. no problems with the new unit. great company and product.
Really very satisfied with my purchase exceeds my expectations. Impeccable quality and easy to use.
Vergleichbar mit Pyropen-Piezo von Weller den ich 20 Jahre hatte. Schauen wir mal ob diese auch solange durch hält und er ist vielseitiger
Top, with a bit of practice you can work wonders, works perfectly, processing and handling is flawless, packaging and delivery without complaining, price-performance fits
Excellent product. I bought this for soldering but am definitely looking to use it for wood burning as well. The heat is very controlled. Make sure you use a high quality butane!
Pros:Lots of tipsCan easily be used as a torch if neededHolds plenty of butane to do complex jobsHeat is easily adjustedCons:No level indicator on the butane tank (the reason I took a star off)leaks a little when filling, but so does my butane torch, so it may be normalexhaust, it's a necessary evil of a butane soldering iron, but it is a con compared to electric.Thoughts:I used it to solder a 5 wire pigtail on to my trucks wiring harness. 2 wires were 12 gauge and my old soldering iron just didn't have the power to do it, this one did it easily on it's lowest setting. I didn't even have to change the tips out to shrink the shrink wrap since this thing blows hot exhaust out the side of the tip, and I was able to just use that.I also used to solder wires onto a keyboard switch so this can be used on delicate computer wires as well as thick automotive wires.Overall I would recommend this to anyone who needs a quick soldering iron and doesn't want to have to find a plug or wait for the heat to reach soldering temps.. it's ready in seconds instead of minutes like equally small electric varieties I've used.
The product is awesome and hande when you dont have any electricity with you i love that its portable and multipurpose
Soldering electronic wires
Alles prima, schnelle Lieferung.
product was as advertised works well
Woe this torch is by far my all time favorite, I find and use any excuse almost daily to use it
Io ne ho comprati due, uno per ogni furgone.L'ho usato all'interno di una cella frigorifera -30; ne avevo uno elettronico ma non riusciva a fondere lo stagno, , Mi ha salvato la giornata di lavoro!!!
Heats up incredibly fast. Works great
Much more convenient than having to plug the solder in and wait for it to heat up
No more trying to find a 110 Volt outlet to plug in my Weller soldering iron. Very convenient now, used it in my camper with no problem.
I love this tool, used a few time no complaints what so ever. Highly recommend it for field work, if you need to soilder or any thing of the sort
Great mobile soldering kit, good quality for the money.
I like that the tool is so light and easy to fill with butane.I plan on using this tool in my workshop forQuick repairs and in the making of jewelery.
Small soldering tips
I use this in mobile mechanic tool set and it has helped me with quote a few jobs. The different tips are fairly versatile and easy to switch. I would buy this again, no issues so far.
Packaging was good. Portable.
Much better than other irons I've have purchased. Much better build quality
Heats up really quickly, perfect for working outside on my car.
Great, portable. Nice to hold. Nice set of tips.
love it, I just wish the case foam were cut in a way to accept the iron with any of the tips on it so I wouldn't have to de-configure it every time but that's alright, you can still squeeze it in there with the tips. It just doesn't look as "neat"
Very pleased gas last a long time while soldering
Great product! Exactly what I needed to repair broken vehicle wiring
I haven't tried it yet but looks like it's made well
Haven't done too much soldering with it, but the hot air attachment works great for desoldering.Nice smooth metal finish. Gas flow adjuster helps control heat.I do soldering with a Hakko
Nothing really to carp about. It's THAT good especially at that price point. I should know about these types of portable irons, 35 years as 'Field Service Engineer" for Lockheed Aerospace.The Lexivon iron is the nicest I've ever used bar none!Ok, one thing that would have been good to have? A gas gauge to see the butane level. Though it's good size volume.
Was looking at 3 different models from various outlets, decided on this one and glad I did, an excellent piece of kit, has done everything I required from it. Always in my electrical tool box now.
Device is really good, and the quality of build is excellent
It doesn't work that way
Non semplicissima da usare, ma una volta capito il funzionamento, direi che fa bene il suo lavoro !!
Disliked the method of igniting flame.
omg i love it when you take a chance on a product and it totally deliversnever gonna go back to an electrical one without some serious convincing
Great kit, just remember to buy a butane refill bottle. Like all fuel powered devices it does not come with the butane.
great little iron I've used it for soldering electrical and also welding plastics
Nice unit. Easily fills with butane. Adequate accessory tips for soldering, cutting, etc. Heats up quickly. Doesn't appear to have an abundance of flame adjustment, but enough to not be a problem. Only accessory I think should have been included but was not is some kind of wire holder to secure the torch while lit but at rest.Very satisfied so far with purchase.
Very easy to use and heats up fast
Bought this to replace my 25 year old Weller Butane Portasol. Comes with ALL the tips you would need, including the two I use most. The pinpoint tip and the complete heat shrink tip. But to swap a tip is complex. Unscrew the heat/flame shield and use TWO wrenches to remove the tip, which fits on a base that fits INSIDE the heat/flame shield. Reverse order to install a different tip. Extra attachment to use the heat shrink function. It all makes sense and does come with a protective plastic tip cover, which I use to keep it fully assembled with the tip I use the most. Overall, not a bad buy, considering it is half the cost of the Weller. I only hope it is as durable.
Das Produkt entspricht den Erwartungen. Alle Funktionen sind gut händelbar.
Good kit that heats up fast. I thought this would help me produce better soldering joints - but I just never seem to get the hang of soldering.
nice little solder iron. Only used a couple of times since I bought it, but works great.

A great soldering Iron having a robust feel....worth the expense.

Sadly, the product was delivered to the wrong address but thankfully my neighbors brought it to us. Once i was finally able to use it I must say it worked exactly as advertised.
I just want to say I have been using my torch for 2 years now and just recently it died on me. I explained everything to their customer support and they decided to send me a replacement. I would have been happy to buy a replacement because of how long it lasted me. But I am very thankful that they cared enough about their customers to replace mine at no extra expense to me. This torch is a no brainer if not need one pick it up.

It's a handy little soldering iron. Works for what I need wiring for rc cars. But filling the iron with butane is a pain in the neck. Tried a couple different cans and and I shoot air everytime. Like the plunger doesn't go all the way down. Idk. Great other than filling
Works for what I need.
Habe Ihn noch nicht so lang aber bis jetzt ist alles ok. Macht was er soll.
The huge advantage of this set is the speed with which you can work. I bought it to solder 10mm² cables and welded a leaky PVC housing for the pool piping with it. It worked great.
I love everything about it.

I haven't used this yet, but seems very nice. I added fuel and it lights up right away and gets hot. I had one before and loved it. Bought to replace what I had. The price was great for what you get.
This has been such a great investment for all of my projects and jobs. Definitely recommend getting quality butane too. 10 of 10 for this soldering iron
Clark N. Pavlicek
ottimo prodotto molto professionale
funziona bene e scalda molto adatto a lavori fuori casa
If you're reading this review you got to remember to get the best refined butane you can find or else are you going to get misfires. I just had to put that out there. This torch is very comfortable to use and is the perfect temperature for soldering whatever you need to solder. As soon as I tried my Lexivon i Thruway my Weller portable Torch. It was old and I never liked it anyway and I paid over $100 for it. Now I got this Lexivon and I love it. And you will too I guarantee it. Some people say that it's hard to get around the safety features but they put there for a reason. I cannot believe the price I got the torch for. It is very well-built and I have a feeling I'll have an a long time.
The exhaust for the butane comes out near the tip, sideways. Make sure you know this before attempting to solder anything as you stand a real chance of burning the thing you want to solder or, as in my case, the very protection of a cable that I was soldering. It made a total mess of things and necessitated a restart.Other than that - it's fantastic and I would not be without it when attempting projects where electricity isn't easily or safely available.
Loving this tool. Surpassed my expectations. Was looking to replace my long time favorite and this came in clutch
Except for the protective cap, the box and the coloring 1:1 identical to the Dremel set. Even the accessories fit. However, the protective cap on the Dremel is a little better thought out, as it completely covers the â€œigniterâ€ . With the Lexivon, this can still be activated with the cap on. Purchased to replace the lost Dremel.
Rarely lights on the first try but almost always on the second. The odd time it takes 3 attempts. Great tool regardless and happy with my purchase
Levixon soldering iron I bought is fantastic,Quickly warm up ready for work.I used it for tiny and precize job and soldered perfect,I am very happy andhighly recommend this product.
The Welsh Barber
Does what it says on the tin
Does what it says.I'm an amateur, but I think this would compliment any toolkit
Read the directions first twice. it uses catalytic materials, so you will not see a flame but it does get hot! Has a lot of tips (solder, cutting, etc.) Great on a boat were electricity is iffy and you don't really want open flames around
i loved it just what i needed
Great tool looks well made though not fully tested looks identical to the Dremmel which costs qÃ¹te a bit more
Ne serré pas trop la bague de plastique noir car vous pourriez devisser l'embout complètement
Muy recomendado lo mejor en soldadora portatil acil uso
Great tool for the workshop, from soldering to annealing copper washers.
I use this as auto tech and it works very well as opposed to the expensive tool brands. I intend to get one for home use as well.
Repaired 50s vintage visor mirror
Great for small soldering jobs on the go when no power is available
Macht genau was es soll.
Amazing soldering iron
Perfect for what I need, be it soldering or melting heat shrink
Ok now first off, I love the product, I love the portability of the torch and I love the case how it holds everything in place really snug. Awesome job to Lexivon! Another couple things I am definitely going to pick up the other model they have because the stand up ability of that one would be beneficial in a lot of situations but I like the reach of this one if you are in a situation where you might have to solder something in place. I work on engines so I have to à€œreach" a lot. The torch is a hit and miss on temps because it is portable and butane, but I can live with that because it's portable. Overall I am extremely satisfied with this torch but I am going to list some improvements, in my opinion, that could be done:1: The collar on the torch is plastic that screws the cover over the torch that you use to put any attachments on, in my experiences plastic and metal do not go well together when threads are involved, hence the threads will strip and make the torch useless. And same thing but heat and plastic do not go well together, the torch gets hot because it is a torch and plastic does melt, so when I'm using my torch I set it down for a second and that second turns into 5 mins and torch burns itself out of butane and the sucker is red hot what will happen to the said plastic collar? Just something to think about guys.2: can you please put a window of some sort on the tank, it is really difficult to know how full(or not full) the tank is.3: Can you figure out a little stand of some sort that could possibly fold up into the case to use when your soldering, this thing is hard to keep from tipping when placed down4: The cover for the torch, again, plastic, and how do plastic and heat get along? Not good. So maybe a metal tip cover?Anyway hope this helps I love the torch and it is a 5 star item but as like anything no matter how good it is, you can always make it better.
Easy to use and very good item`s quality
I needed to do an extensive wiring repair under a vehicle. This product allowed me to get the job done easily without having to run extension cords. The heat I needed to splice the wiring was much more efficient than any electric appliance I could have used.
This is a great tool. The only thing I wasn't happy about is finding replacement tips for when I need them.
After a year of use, this torch keeps on going. Great quality, portability and handling. Heat up good. If you use the right gas, it wil not only last but also perform at its best. Will buy again in a heart beat.
Perfect for the small projects, so nice not having to deal with a cord. I use this for making battery packs for my RC collection. So far nothing to complain about, works as it should..
The main use I make of it is the micro-soldering of electronic parts and I am very satisfied with it.
This burner is better than my previous one (different brand) and it was pretty good. It is versatile, works perfectly and has more accessories than many other brands that cost considerably more money. I am satisfied and can also recommend him. Good things don't always have to be expensive. It is definitely sufficient for the hobby area.
Handy, works well without elecgricity.
