Default Butane Powered Soldering Irons

Hi,

I am thinking of getting a Butane gas powered soldering iron to help
in installing some landscape low voltage lighting.

I was thinking about a Weller P2C or Weller PSI100C.

Anybody used one of these before / have any advice?

Best, Mike.

They work fine for your application, and are much better than those
wimpy dry cell operated soldering irons, which will barely solder a
twisted joint made from #40 wire. G

Try and shield your work from drafts if it's cold and windy out. It's
amazing how much heat a breeze can carry away.
