Narva releases lithium ion soldering iron kit
Narva has added a soldering iron to its range of electrical accessories with a compact, fast-heating cordless lithium ion powered unit which comes in a comprehensive kit.
The new kit comes with additional interchangeable tips to suit a variety of jobs, including chisel, cone, and hot knife for cutting (eg rope) and an integrated LED light to illuminate the working area to ensure adequate visibility and accurate soldering. Doubling as a visual check that the iron is hot, the LED only illuminates once the button is pressed and heating commences.
Providing a runtime of 40 minutes, Narva says the lithium ion battery is fully charged in 3.5 hours using the included USB to Micro-USB cable. The 10 second heating time ensures quick use of the iron, with a maximum temperature of 600°C. For safety, the soldering iron features overcharging, over-discharging plus short circuit, and electrostatic discharge protections. The kit includes a safety cap and idle stand to ensure user safety during heat up, use, and cool down. Replacement tips are also available to purchase as a kit.
Narva says the kit is contained in a durable case that is ideal for professionals and is available from leading automotive and transport outlets at a retail price around $195.
