The Turnigy 947-III portable electric soldering iron set not only has an excellent 60W soldering iron but all the accessories, like solder, tip cleaner, sucker and tweezers, required for successful soldering plus a storage case to keep all the tools together.
Temperature setting is easily adjustable between 200C and 450C to meet most requirements and a handy indicator light lets you know when the iron is on. This lightweight soldering iron includes an ON-OFF switch for ease of use and energy efficiency and the tip can be easily changed with most "Hako" type tips to suit your soldering needs.
The internal heating core is highly efficient and the handle uses new environmentally safe materials that are safe and durable. Included is a support stand to hold the soldering iron when not in use. A great package with everything you need.

I have mixed feelings about this soldering iron set.
The carry case is great.
The selection & quality of tips is great.
The tip cleaner (with rosin in the bottom) is great.
The tweezers are great.
The performance of the iron however is underwhelming.
The heat up time is disappointing as it heats up no faster than my old 25W iron, despite being labelled as 60W
I used a power meter to test it heating from cold, and it pulls only 23W, so there you go...
I'm not convinced of its temperature accuracy either. I've no precise way of testing its temperature, but comparing its performance alongside a TS100 iron (which is calibrated), the dial would seem to read 50-70C above the actual tip temp. Which means also that the max temp of 450C is highly optimistic.
But, at this price, I don't want to complain, and would recommend to those on a budget.
