Hi, can't say, every seller at Aliexpress is a bit like a lottery ticket, quality can vary a lot between them.
What I can truly say is to not buy clone tips, they're crap, even worse than $3 T12 tips, only use genuine JBC ones.

Thank you for your prompt response, I wasn't planning to spend the money on Chinese tips, only the original ones. The link I have given you is the handle with the ksger connector. This seems like a good option to you, right? Will I have to make any internal modifications or is the pinout correct? Have you personally been able to test c210 tips with this firmware?

DavidAlfa:
I use T12, tried C245 knockoff for a brief period of time (Terrible ***) , never tried C210 myself.
I'm pretty sure others here  use 210 and worked just fine after calibration.

C210 doesn't need any hardware mods like C245, it's very much like the T12, heater+thermocouple in series, just different calibration.
I guess the handle should right away, ksgers have no "optional" pins for secondary functions, nor different pinout versions.

Personally I'd go with the C245 instead.
The C245 has either small tips for precision jobs, and larger tips for heavy stuff, but the C210 have way less power, so not suitable for heavy soldering work.
Also the C245 tips are ususally cheaper, you can get them for 25-30€, while the C210 tend to be more expensive, around 40€.
It's been a long time sicnce I last checked their prices, might have changed.

Hello.

Admiration for your contribution, David!  :-+

I am considering of getting the Quicko T12-955 soldering station and mod it with your firmware to use C245 handle and tips.
Do you think that unit is suitable for this purpose?

They state the the power supply is 120W, which is not enough for full utilization of the C245 tips, but still decent enough for the purpose I will be using the soldering station for.
It can also be powered with external 24V power supply which can unlock the full potential.

I am mostly concerned if the MOSFETS and the PCB traces can handle the higher current.

How much power do you think this board can handle stock and will changing the MOSFETS to beefier ones be enough?

Best regards.

p.s.
sorry if that was already asked.. i searched through the thread, but it's way too long to read all the pages

here are two pictures of the unit taken from the listing

Need to change MCU to original !!!!!! STM32F103C8T6 , STM32F103CBT6  or CKS32F103C8T6 , CKS32F103CBT6  . The thickness of the tracks and MOSFETS is not a problem for the JBC c245, but to fit a larger 1.7 or 2.42 inch display, the 3.3v needs to be modified in particular (SPX2954AM3-3.3). Аnd add 10 M ( 2M2 ) resistor to input of operating amplifier . This power power supply is 80w.
