This seems an extraordinary low price, especially when compared to major brand soldering equipped such as Weller and Antex available from retailers such as Farnell and Maplin.

I tried to find a review of this Lidl Parkside soldering station but only came up with the unboxing video below from Raf tv. It would be interesting to see how it performs in both real life and laboratory conditions.

The 48 Watt soldering station comes with two 10g reels of solder and a replacement soldering bit.
