Use to have a Herb Iron for a couple years but it broke and I didn’t feel like spending another 100$ to get one. I went on aliexpress and found this ceramic soldering iron with a on/off switch which is an important safety feature as most soldering irons don’t have a switch it’s just on all the time until you unplug it. When a new user signs up on aliexpress you can get a 3$ coupon and basically get the soldering iron shipped for 5$ US.When you get it just unscrew the metal tip exposing the ceramic heating element and now your set to light your bowls

Right about that. And the effects you get are still the same. Well, there are just people who loves to complicate things..JimB wrote: Sun Apr 05, 2020 7:48 am The difference is in the person. Once a bowl is lit, it is lit. Some people like to make things complicated - like using a 'gravity' bong instead of a regular bong.
The difference is in the taste. With the soldering iron it doesn't have that burnt weed taste that you get with a lighter. You can also use hemp wick instead of a lighter but the smoke given off from the wick burning personally gives me a headache so I rather use the soldering iron instead. Another bonus aside from better tasting weed is you don't have to buy anymore lighters or butane.highflyer234 wrote: Sun Apr 05, 2020 5:46 am what's the difference between the soldering iron and the lighter? i mean you'd prefer the soldering iron then?
