A 230V mains powered 25W soldering iron with fitted a UK 13A plug.
Highly respected by both industrial users and hobbyists alike, Antex soldering irons have become one of today's classic soldering tools. It is a tribute to the simple, yet highly effective basic design of the XS25W miniature electric soldering iron that it has changed little over the years.
Fitted UK 13A mains plug
Inner ceramic shaft provides near-perfect insulation with virtually no leakage (3 to 5µA)
Outer stainless steel shaft for strength
Bits are held on the element shaft by an internal spring clip and simply slide on or off for changing
Q. Does the iron have the heat free silicone power lead.
A. Hi SJ. Thank you for your question. The silicone cable version of this iron is available on 85-1145.
Cheap as chips!

For a few weeks now i have been searching for a decent soldering iron. In my college we use Antex Soldering irons and could not find a great price elsewhere. Came to Rapid and saw that this soldering iron comes in many different types. I thought i would take a gamble with the PVC cable soldering iron. This product is very good compared to the price, plus it does the job well. There may be better soldering irons out on the market, but to me i would recommend this soldering iron to anyone!
