Hope you all are doing well. I am currently using Goot 40w or 60w (don’t remember exactly) soldering iron but I have noticed that it seems getting too hot as its tip turns purple black and won’t accept solder until I turn if off, rub its tip and reapply solder. I know carbon normally forms on tip but its happening to often, like every 5-10 minutes. Also as now a days electronics items are usually small and SMD type so this iron is big for this task and I feel too much difficulty fixing things like mobile, gadmei tv tuner device etc…
So please suggest me a best soldering iron for smd work. It should be small and robust. I have seen some irons with temp control, are these good enough?
Thanks in advance.
