  Does anyone here have any experience with this? Or something like it?

  Does it get hot enough to solder 2 12-14gauge wires together?

your talking about the yellow one right the one that sits in a charger ? i don't see why not according to it's specs. But the ? is how convinient is it are you a profesional installer that uses it all day .are you steady in one location at all times that u can keep the charger plugged in it at all times or are u a traveling installer that keeps it on a power supply in your vehicle ,another thing i noticed it doesn't say anything about being able to adjust the temp. range.If your not going to use it often go for it. I personaly use a butane powered one made by blue point with adjustable heat range it also comes with a torch,hot knife,and heat shrink tip with are constantly used....  And yeah it would solder 2 12-14 gauge wires together!

I just want to use it for the occasional remote starter install. But I mainly want it for work where I have a lot of machines to take care of, and no outlets close by. I hate dragging the extension cord and then have to wait for the iron to heat up. I could use a soldering gun (the 100/140 watt) but I will still have to drag the cord.

OK, how many of you have wanted to kill your Snap-On butane solering iron because she just won't heat up. Is it the type of butane that you use or is it just a smelly POS? I've gone through 3 of these things and just now I have been informed that I must use this type of butane (conveniently sold by my Snap-On dude).

Top Secret, I can tell you but then my wife will kill me.

I use only ronson butane. I have used cheap cans before and it clogged the soldering iron, I guess it isn't filtered as well. First one lasted a year, second one is going on 2+ years.

u don't have to use a specific type of butane for snap-on just that the ceramic under the soldering tip gets dirty so it doesn't allways turn on so just use a small awl and scrape the ceramic a little to clean it out and it will work like new again........but ronson is my favorite......
