Hot air gun
Simple to use. Versatile for soldering, desoldering and heat shrinking. Use it with the bent nozzle!
Functional for this price range. I use it to read and inspect small chips, electronic components and soldering works.
I use it to power my PCBs. It ranges upto 16V, 10A, which is sufficient for my low power use cases.
Moved my inventory list from spreadsheet to this! Integrates with project BOM and fast search.
Yes, it is analog, not digital, but that also means it will last for years! And it comes in a case.
