IIRC they have the same PCB inside. However plastic heater part is of larger diameter AFAIK.

All MK2/trace stations use the same heater, including pico.  So the only difference probably is a power cord, maybe plastic materials.

Faranight:
Thanks for confirming the i-Tool compatibility. Speaking of Ersa tools, does anyone have experience with their hot tweezers?
I am looking to buy something for SMD de/soldering, and I'm wondering, if any of these tools that they offer are good?

If you recall correctly or know from what source? I haven’t seen any teardowns of any of the Mk2 handpieces.

No, they do not. I listed above which ones use which of the two Mk2 heaters that exist. I had checked Ersa’s own spare parts shop (ersashop.com) before writing above. Did you not read that part of my post?

Here it is again:

So I wonder why the nano Mk2 and pico Mk2 don’t share a heater now.

Again, this information is straight from Ersa.

i-Tool Mk1 (0100CDJ) and i-Tool nano Mk1 (0120CDK) use heater 010102J
i-Tool pico Mk1 (0130CDK) uses heater 013100J

i-Tool Mk2 (0105CDJ) and i-Tool nano Mk2 (0125CDK) use heater 016100J
i-Tool Trace (0140CDJ) and i-Tool pico Mk2 (0135CDK) use heater 014100J

They Mk2 heaters look identical from the photos (which unfortunately are at different angles), but there must be some difference or they wouldn’t make two different heater models. Thus my wondering what the difference is.

I meant MK1 handpieces, and I can throw throw ball back about being confusing since you didn't explicitly write you were talking about MK2 in that sentence :). But heck, Ersa made it even more confusing than it was already with naming of older stations.

Well the entire paragraph was about the Mk2, so… ;)
