Weller ML500MP Review

Weller ML500MP Mid-Sized Soldering Pencil The new Weller ML500MP is a versatile mid-size soldering pencil that came out recently. Its main selling point is the fact that the user doesn’t have to choose between power and run time. With its medium setting working time of 30 minutes, it has the ability to finish numerous jobs between refills. This definitely makes it useful for field service repairs.

It also has a widely ranging temperature (750°F-900°F) allowing it to handle basic tasks as well as detailed projects. In addition, one of the most functional things about the ML500MP is that when its soldering tip is removed, it can be used as a mini-torch.

Here are a few more features of the Weller ML500MP Magna-Lite Butane Soldering Pencil that may interest you:

  • Uses a Piezo ignition system
  • Adjustable gas flow valve controls temperature range
  • Wide base allows hands-free operation
  • Window allows user to see fuel level
  • Iron is refillable with Weller WB1 or WB2 filtered butane
  • Comes with an ML501 tip
  • Also uses ML502 and ML503 tips
