The TS80P is the upgraded version of TS80 Smart Soldering Iron. The key improvement is the increased power output; it's up from 18W to 30W. This extra power makes it more capable of soldering bigger power plugs and higher gauge cable. Also now it only takes 11 seconds to reach 350°C, compared to the 18 seconds from the TS80. As before, the soldering iron is powered by a USB Type-C input, which can be provided by charging plugs, power banks and mobile power supplies that comply with PD2.0 (12V 2.5A)/QC3.0 (9V 2A) standard.
The other main change is the brand new tip fastener, which provides a better holding experience and an easy push-to-loosen action for changing the tips quickly and safely.
Despite the relatively low power of the TS80P, 30W 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.
The TS80P iron has a great feel of quality about it, the body of the iron is made of anodised aluminium rather than plastic. It also benefits from an ergonomic grip that helps with soldering precision.
As with the TS80 iron, the TS80P 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.
This is the TS80P 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 EU plug fitting). We sell a carry case for the TS80P separately here.
