Three LEDs are built into the gun to light up the soldering area without casting the tip shadow left by most single-LED soldering guns. A pivoting ball guard protects the gun's power cable from twisting, ensuring a long lifespan. The gun's grip is ergonomic, non-slip, and stores the hex wrench for swapping out the soldering tips. The grip foot is rounded, allowing users to stabilize the gun while rocking it back and forth if needed during soldering. The heavy-duty nature of the Apex Tool Group 9400PKS Soldering Gun Kit makes it ideal for heat sinks, ground planes, metal art, and plumbing.
