Review of the Performance Tool Cordless Soldering Iron

Today we'll be having a look at the Performance Tools cordless soldering iron, part number PTW2000. Here's what our soldering iron looks like. As you can see, it's a cordless soldering iron. Has a protective cap included and even comes with a little bit of solder. The soldering iron is powered by four AA batteries, you have to provide your own, has two power settings, low and high, and has an LED indicator, lets you know if it's turned on or not right here. The brighter the LED is, it's shows you if it's on the higher setting or the lower setting. The soldering iron is equivalent to an eight watt soldering iron. It's heats up to the maximum temperature of 572 degrees Fahrenheit, and will reach 365 degrees Fahrenheit almost immediately. I have two pieces of wire here. We're going to show you how to do a wire repair with a soldering iron.

Strip off some insulation from both wires, we'll insert the wire onto each other and then twist them together like so. Now we'll make a permanent connection with the soldering iron. Turn on our soldering iron, I'm going to use the maximum setting today so I'll switch the switch to the second position and let it heat up. Once it reaches it's temperature, we'll know because the solder will melt. Okay, now that we have solder worked all the way in, we'll shut our soldering iron off, let it cool off. You can see now how the solder's worked it's way all the way into our wire making a nice solid connection here.

Now we have one solid piece of wire versus two, and that completes our look at the Performance Tools cordless soldering iron, part number PTW2000.
