Cold tip soldering gun???

Anybody have one of these marvelous wonders? Cant imagine how the tip can be so cold so fast. Are they like advertised or too cold when on??? Can they solder bigger items??

I don't trust anything with the tagline "As seen on TV!"


Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.

i got one as a gift. haven't used it yet but it does melt solder "as shown on tv" and cool immediately. The tip is some kind of carbon/ceramic material

I do a lot of marine electronics, have had the CoolHeat tool for about 2 yrs. now. My only complaint is that it is a bit bulky. Other than that, it works "as seen on TV"

Mine came rated for up to 18ga, guys on some other boards have been pushing it up to 14 but I haven't tried it, I found 16 to be marginal.

IMHO, it's a good tool if you use it for what it was designed for. It usually comes with a Chinese wire stripper, throw that out.
