EEVblog #596 – World’s Cheapest Soldering Station – Yihua 936


Dave takes a look at the world’s cheapest temperature controlled soldering station, the $16 Hakko 936 knockoff Yihua 936 from Hobby King.
How does it compare to the older genuine Hakko 926?
Also, thermal capacity comparison testing is done on those two irons plus the high thermal capacity JBC.
Sagan also gives his verdict.
