I would give it zero if I could. Mine also melted the plastic around the heating element. The tips it comes with are no good. I was unable to even tin them no matter how hard I tried. Might work OK if you used a better tip, but even then the unit will still melt. I returned mine and will buy a better brand elsewhere. While I did like tha fact that it came in a case, the unit itself has a very cheap feel.

I think weller tips will fit.

Heats up very aggressively. It burned right through the tips after several uses. Also, it melted the plastic around the heating element. I waited until it was on sale and rather than buy new tips (I don't even think they offer them), I treated as a disposable unit and bought another one. Good thing it was very cheap.
