PRESTO 981 Gun-Style Soldering Iron

List Price:

Pistol style Hakko Presto iron is a 20W light-duty iron with a boost feature allowing the user to increase power to 130W for occasional heavy-duty applications.

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)
