I'd get one of these:



It's a Benzomatic butane soldering iron. I have one, and it works great. Mine has a soldering tip, a hot knife tip, a heat gun tip, and a micro torch tip.

Most of the info-mercial stuff is junk when you get to see it in person.
I would be skeptical of anything with this on it:

I think it might be a awesome little tool, using a small piece of tungsten and ceramic heat barrier you may be able to heat it up to 800 degrees in a second..if it does what it claims its a awesome little soldering tools

I am skeptical, that's why I asked. I don't see how 4 AA batterys can produce the equivalen of a 25W soldering iron.
