If you’re in the market for an iron soldering gun, The Zacro 60W 230V should definitely be on the top of your mind. A bestseller on Amazon, this kit is packed full of value while remaining affordable to a wide range of budgets.
This complete 6 in 1 kit comes with everything you need to tackle a wide range of soldering projects. The Zacro uses 60 watts of energy to heat up quickly to a range of 200 of 450 degrees celsius. Its built-in thermometer ensures you’re using the exact amount of heat needed to get the job done.

The Zarco iron soldering gun comes ready to use, no soldering station needed. Simply plug in the Zacro and you’re good to go. The kit also comes with a pocket pack solder, a .50oz tub, and tweezer.
While primarily used for wood burning, you can also use the the Zarco for metal work, stained glass, and certain electrical connections. It’s beautiful and minimal design also makes it a joy to both use and display in your toolbox.
Only a few things keep the Zarco from a perfect rating.
The stand included in the kit is a little on the flimsy side, which can be a little frustrating at times. The Zarco kit also comes without instructions, which can be quite intimidating if you’re a first time soldering gun user. While most of the pieces are self-explanatory, you might have to do a little bit of research to get the value of all that comes in the kit.
The handle can get a little warm when used for extended periods of time, however, we have found this to be true of most soldering guns on the market.
We also were a little disappointed there is no off switch, rather you simply have to unplug the soldering gun from the wall. While this isn’t a huge deal, it would be nice to have the power switch for better ease of use.
- Complete kit covering most soldering needs.
- Fantastic design and packaging with top of the line customer support.
- Great price point.
- The stand is a little flimsy.
- Does not include instructions, so experience with soldering guns is needed.
- The grip can get fairly hot at certain times.
- No off button which may be annoying to some.
The Zarco iron soldering gun is a complete kit that in our experience comes just as advertised. While we’d love to see some of our suggestions from above implemented, the kit more than gets the job done.
As a reminder, any work with a soldering gun comes with some risk do to the high level of heat, so please sure to make sure you are safe while doing any soldering work.
