This Aoyue soldering station comes with a smoke absorber. This is great feature of Aoyue soldering iron – I love it. This is good safety feature as well. Smoke absorber absorbs all hazardous smokes from flux and solder that are dangerous for human health. Smoke absorber is attached on handle of Aoyue soldering iron and air intake of smoke absorber is positioned just little bit above the iron tip.
Of course, it is possible to buy smoke absorber as separate unit - there are many different models of smoke absorber on market in the USA. Smoke absorber should be positioned close to soldering iron in order to absorb most of fumes so you always need to pay attention to perform soldering work as close to smoke absorber as possible. Sometimes this can be difficult to achieve, for example, if you perform soldering work under microscope. In addition, if you move soldering iron to different place, you also have to move smoke absorber. In these situations it is great convenience to use Aoyue soldering iron 2702A which has smoke absorber attached on handle – so when you move soldering iron, smoke absorber follows this move since it is attached on soldering iron.
I have been working with Aoyue soldering station 2702A for 3 years and everything went smoothly. It is a really complete soldering system including very fast temperature response and lots of accessories. I have been using this 2702A Aoyue soldering station for soldering very fine surface-mount components (sizes 0402 and 0603) to circuit board. I give 5 out of 5 stars to this Aoyue soldering station.
