Channel A and B Outputs
I do not like the (probably) high current brown flat cables.
Is the case made of plastic?

Unfortunately, original JBC handles are not directly compatible with Aixun T420D.

The connector is different, but you can replace that easily.

Guys, if it's not too much trouble for you, check the contacts on the handle connector with a tester without installing a soldering iron.
Between which contacts is a jumper installed to determine the connected handle С115? ;)

Anyone know if I get shipped a 220V version of this item if I can just switch the power plug to make it work with 110V? TIA!

no as far as i was told no you can not. you may be able to re wire the transformer but the 220v i was told directly by aixun uses a different transformer then the 110v ive already been through this with 2 different sellers myself. i had to get them to exchange them. if you open it up the trans may have both hookups but i dont believe it does. you can watch sdg's video where he does a tear down and shows you the transformer itself.

so i re watched the video and no its one or the other see here https://youtu.be/4dOrV8wTkaw?t=441

there is a resistor inside the handle on both the 245 and 210 that tell the station which handle is connected so i assume the 115 is the same way i can check one tomm to see

just to double check i opened one of our 110v units and the trans in there is a 110v only. so you do need either 110v OR THE 220v

Thank you. A seller on AliExpress was selling a T420D with two handles and six cartridges for $220 shipped but it was only 220v. Ended up paying $320 out the door for a 110v version. Of course it had a bad 245K cartridge. Worked for 10 minutes (maybe 30 seconds soldering) and went kaput.

contact aliexpress. they should help you get a refund. they may even give you a label to send it back to the them if you ask nicely. if not contact aixun. they have been good to me. though i have 9 t420d and not a single issue with any of them. i have had to have a couple p2408s units swapped out though

Just pulled the trigger on T420D. Does anyone know if anyone makes a hot air handle compatible with this unit? Would me nice to exchange one of the irons with hot air.

Short answer is no. 

Hot air requires an air pump.  There's no pump in the unit so the handle would have to have a fan or pump inside it, and in-handle fans are typically trash.

They are making a hot air unit supposedly.  But as to when itll be released or what itll cost, no idea.

Good to know. Thanks. I bought the 2-channel unit specifically with the hope that small hot air handle may come into existence... its useful to have even just for silly things like heat shrink etc; even if it is not powerful enough to de-solder an IC...

Does anyone make an adapter cable to be able to use JBC handles without rewiring?

T420D is in the house. So far i like it. Using a large chisel tip from JBC i was able to tin a 1/4" thick 4"x4" steel plate, so yeah enough power. The power graph is fun. Noticed that most of the time it is not running at 100%, suggesting that thermal transfer from the tip to the part being soldered is the limiting factor.

way to much imo. they will come down and prob even with free shipping if given a bit of time. the actual full msrp retail price is only 187.00. i have an order in for some of the 310d's but i have no received shipping confirmation yet. im hoping i will soon though i have 12 ordered (for the shop) but the 110v versions. ill keep you all posted on when or if they ship and ill ask if maybe i can do a discount or something (i doubt it though they are stingy with discounts but i will ask) i am also asking about becoming a aixun dealer here in the usa for the people here. and stocking the products.

I recently posted a full review of this station with English subtitles if anyone is interested. It is the best-made and most functional Chinese soldering station I have tested so far. I recommend it.

Station arrived and tips for T245 Seem to have 2.8 ohms resistance.

How has the T420(D) iron been treating you folk? Considering getting it over the T3A due to the T3A buzzing issues.
