We live in such a fantastic world in modern times, in which we can decide to start a project with absolutely no knowledge required, and simply find all of the details and insights we need online to help us figure out the many often-complex challenges that each different project typically imposes. However, although we don’t necessarily need the knowledge to enjoy a wide range of different projects, we do still need tools like Soldering Irons, to help us connect all of the required Modules, components and other little parts together with strong electrical connections.

This is what has made us so excited over the MiniDSO TS100 Soldering Iron Pack, which is a very fancy reprogrammable soldering iron that utilises between 12V and 24V DC to heat up at incredible speeds, while offering a surprising level of functionality for what would typically be just a simple tool. And whilst a standard soldering iron is usually sufficient for most basic Electronics projects, sometimes you need more functionality that helps you prevent any thermal damage or even ESD faults when dealing with very sensitive Components.

Compared to standard soldering irons, the MiniDSO TS100 offers an integrated STM32 control circuit with dual temperature sensors for precision temperature control with only 2% tolerance. Additionally, it also features onboard control functions via two simple buttons, an integrated OLED LCD display for quick temperature readings, a solder tip grounding cable to prevent electrical faults, as well as a micro USB port for programming custom temperature curves, defining idle and sleep timers, and even updating the firmware.

These incredible features, coupled with the wide input voltage range and rapid heating times of between 40 seconds and 10 seconds depending on the power supply used (read Power Consumption Ratings below), there are few other soldering iron’s we’d prefer to have at our side when venturing into the big wide world of Electronics Making.

Please Note: This pack does not include a power supply, due to the wide input range. However, you can simply use old power supplies from laptops or similar devices rated between 12V and 24V.

Worth it!

I prefer this over the TS80 for the opposite reason to those that prefer the TS80, the barrel jack!

After so many of my pre-made USB cables dying, it's great to have the old trusty DC jack back. If a cable breaks, you just simply make a new one! Also the 65w is very useful, but only available on a 24v supply.

I'd also suggest getting the TS100 cable here too as it is silicone, it is a little short though, but when running off a LIPO pack its not as noticeable.

All in all a very capable iron, with reasonably accurate temperature sensing. It beats the Magnum 2002 station I worked with for many years, and will embarrass many stations at 2-3 times the price, in both features and performance.

Guangzhou e-Design Intelligent Technology, or more affectionately known as Miniware to us electronics enthusiasts, is the brand that created the awesome TS100 Soldering Iron, and this single item is what helped them rapidly grow in popularity, due to the impressive quality coupled with fancy features – all in a beautifully portable design that can even be powered by LiPo Cell Packs!


Although Miniware remained somewhat unknown before the launch of the TS100, they have actually been involved in electronics design since as far back as 2000, and they hold the title of being the first in the world to design a portable handheld oscilloscope in 2009. Since then, however, Miniware has been rapidly gaining popularity due to the impressive level of quality and sophistication of each their awesome products, and how they manage to fit even more features and functionality into their handheld devices than many of the popular desktop devices within the same price range.


With almost every single one of their awesome products being a truly valuable addition to almost any workshop space, Miniware are one of our favourite brands. And while they certainly don’t release new products often, we simply love to get new goodies in from the moment they are prototyped, so that we can enjoy the awesome new features (both novel and functional) that they have chosen to integrate.
