Marking thread.  I might have a use for an iron like this.

Old thread I realize.  I have a Zune 120 that needs the battery replaced.  4 micro wires in a tight spot.  Will this solder iron do the job?   
A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.

The tightest spot I've used it in is TA5 connectors, which have tiny solder cups very close together. It did the job well.

Has anyone powered theirs with DC? The Talentcell batteries (12V, 3A) seem like they would work based on the PINECIL specs. I'm just trying to avoid another wall plug/charger if possible.

Data point for you: I sometimes use an 84w usbc block rather than 100w. This gets me slightly over 400°, not 450° which is still plenty.

I can prob try with dc in the next week or so.

Personally I have switched everything I can to usbc and wouldn't go back...

^ Thanks. I ended up ordering a 100w plug. Looking forward to completing a project put off for far too long.
