Wahl clippers allow many of us to cut our hair without paying a professional — the true DIY spirit — and now they’ve applied their expertise in cordless clippers and palm-sized electronic tools to the world of soldering. Finally we get a tool from Wahl that we don’t need to lubricate, and that’s supposed to get hot! Seriously though, we’ve discussed cordless soldering irons before, both butane and AA powered, but I’m glad to find a NiCad version — now I won’t have to go shopping because I ran out of fuel.
Wahl makes three versions of the NiCad soldering irons — one of them recharges in just one hour, and another boasts over 200 joints before you need to recharge it.
Street pricing starts at about $50 and runs up to $100 for the big daddy.
