The hakko fx 888d is a digital version of the popular Hakko 936 station and adds a number of features to make it more user-friendly. This includes selectable preset temperatures, password protection, and a low temperature alarm. It also has a 30% higher thermal performance and faster heat recovery than its competitors.

This is a cost-effective, durable, and easy-to-use digital soldering iron for any level of user. With quick heating times, a straightforward interface, and five pre-set temperatures available, this tool can handle all of your soldering needs. It is also equipped with password protection and can be used with a variety of tips, making it ideal for SMD/through-hole applications.

Its small wand makes it one of the easiest-to-handle irons on the market. It can be manipulated into tight spaces where most other irons would be too large to fit. The power cable is also incredibly lightweight and barely feels in your way.

The wand is surprisingly responsive, and Hakko has included a red LED that lights up when the iron is at operating temperature. Unfortunately, it doesn’t turn green when the iron cools down, which can be frustrating for deaf users who can’t rely on the sound of a buzzer.

Another great feature of the hakko fx 888d review is its compact design, which takes up minimal workspace. The stand has cut-outs for sponge and cleaning wire, and it’s sturdy enough to keep the iron firmly in place. The included iron also has a sleek, ergonomic design that feels comfortable in your hand.
