Review of the new 18W USB-C TS80 temperature controlled portable soldering iron.
TLDR; Highly recommended, money well spent if you need a portable iron solution, but you need a QC3 battery pack.

The Australian Computer Museum Societies' warehouse has to shut down next week, so Dave goes warehouse diving.
If you know of someone willing to donate warehouse space in Sydney, please let me know.
UPDATE: Please don't contact them with offers of small donations space, they need a HUGE space, as in hundreds of square meters. Thanks.

#1111 will be coming soon!
