PRESTO 981 Gun-Style Soldering Iron
The HAKKO Presto irons are light-duty soldering irons with a difference — there is a (yellow) switch allowing the user to kick up the power for occasional heavy-duty applications.
The iron delivers 20W power normally, but when quick heat-up is needed, or when a large amount of energy is temporarily required (such as soldering relays or connectors) the yellow switch allows for 130W of power.
Two styles available: pencil and pistol.
Part Number: 980-V12/P (pencil-style)
