    Aliexpress have a few decent options. They have the upgraded JayCar model, which is what I'm using, it has more power in regards to heating and suction and a redesigned gun. Trouble free for me for a long time now.

    Cheers. Thanks for the link @Frank_fjs!


    They both go to 480c. By more power do you mean it heats up quicker than the Jaycar?

    More suction would be good. The Jaycar one sucks in that it doesn't suck all that well, maybe why it regularly blocks.

    When you say trouble free, how much are you using it? I'm bad mouthing the Jaycar one a bit, but it does get a hammering. 1-3 hours a day on average for a month before it needs a new heater. Just want to compare apple with apples. Cheers.

    More power as in more Watts, so it heats up quicker.

    I purchased mine in May of this year and use it weekly. Maybe once or twice a week on average.
