The TS80 Soldering Iron is the smaller brother of the hugely popular TS100. Like the original TS100, the TS80 is also a smart portable soldering iron, but with some new features and improvements.
Improvements over the TS100 include a redesigned casing. Now made of anodised aluminium rather than plastic, it also benefits from a more ergonomic grip that helps with soldering precision. Replacing the solder tips is even easier with the TS80 as it uses a 3.5 mm plug (similar to an audio jack) to connect the tips without any tools needed! Another change is how the TS80 is powered. The DC 5.5mm barrel jack has been replaced by a USB-C input, so it can be powered by any Quickcharge 3.0 USB charging plug or mobile power supplies that meet QC3.0 (9V 2A) standard making mobile soldering more convenient. If you haven't got a compatible power supply, we sell XT60 to USB power adapter that will let you power the TS80 from your XT60 LiPos. Many users chose the TS100 because of its small form factor that provides great portability; the good news is the TS80 is even smaller so getting into tighter spaces with this iron even easier. Furthermore due to its low weight (only 36.5g) you can use it all day without fatigue.
As with the TS100, the TS80 has a STM32 microcontroller and utilises open source firmware, which can be upgraded and customised to suit your preferences by connecting it with a PC; you can do all sorts of clever things like creating your own temperatures curves. Other features that have remained the same are the OLED display, which lets you control the iron and see things like temperature status. Its built-in motion sensor also allows the iron to quickly change between stand-by mode and operating temperature, and also automatic power-off mode.
Despite the relatively low power of the TS80, 18W vs. 65W for the TS100, the soldering iron is very capable and performs for most applications just as well as the TS100. Through pure cooper heat conduction and an internal thermal ceramic heating core, it has excellent heat transfer to its tip so a little heat goes a long way. We've used it to solder racing drone PDBs, XT60s and 14AWG wire without issue; just make sure you have enough solder on the tip to transfer the heat.
This is the TS80 More Package so it comes with extras including a super soft silicone USB-C wire, a ground wire and a Quickcharge 3.0 USB power plug adapter (note it has a US plug fitting). We sell a carry case for the TS80 separately here.
Please note that TS100 Tips are not compatible with the TS80.
You can power the TS80 Soldering Iron with the DALRC USB XT60 Power Converter
