Reliable digital technology by HAKKO - Introducing the HAKKO FX-888D

Excellent thermal recovery

  • (Please select your colour choice in the dropdown, watch for stock levels as we sometimes dont have many in stock!)
  • Heater output has been increased by 30% compared to that of the conventional models HAKKO 936/937. Also FX-888D delivers excellent thermal recovery by using T18 series tips for their terrific heat conductivity.
    This allows soldering at a lower set temperature and reducing the thermal impact on components as well as tip oxidation that can shorten tip life.
  • Thermal recovery graph
    Rise time to 350°C is 20 seconds faster and tip temperature drop is reduced during continuous work.

Designed to be User-Friendly

  • Small footprint
    Compact station body requires a space of only 100 (W) x 120 (D) mm. What's more, points that come into contact with the floor are positioned as close to the outer edge of the body as possible to improve stability and make the station difficult to fall over.
  • Simple and easy operation
    With only two operation buttons of UP and ENTER in the center, operation is simple and easy. Even if you're not familiar with operation of machines, you can operate it without difficulty.
  • Iron holder with full of functions
    An iron holder of the same color of a soldering station comes as a set. The highly functional iron holder not only improves ease of use, but also brings a sense of visual consistency to the work environment.

Quality soldering station - the real deal
Thursday, 5 October 2017  |  Marcus

Do not be tempted by eBay equivalents - there are a large number of fakes there and compromises will have been made like plastic stands etc.
This is a quality item with 100% metal iron stand, heavy power station and nice feel. The silver grey finish is as others have said much nicer than blue/yellow.
The temperature controls are not the most intuitive but I guess if you change them a lot you would get used to them and if you don't, like me, then it's not really an issue.
Very pleased with my purchase and Proto-pics service is great. Next day delivery via the best courier IMHO (DPD) with no problems.

Relatively cheap
Thursday, 16 March 2017  |  Alastair

I've been using unregulated irons for through-hole hobby work my whole life but decided finally to upgrade to a decent thermostatic one for SMD. In the past I've always bought Antex but this iron is currently about 70 cheaper than the equivalent Antex device. I've sometimes found that the tips become loose on Antex irons so I was pleased to see that the Hakko ones are secured with a screw thread. In general it seems very well made, although I've only had it a week so I cannot comment yet on the device's longevity.

My only reservation with buying a Japanese iron like this right now is that UK political / trade uncertainty might make it trickier to obtain replacement tips in the medium term, so I'll probably buy a few in advance.

Quality Solder Station
Monday, 27 February 2017  |  W

After some disappointing results with conventional irons, I can now quickly produce a decent solder joint. Through hole work was even easier after changing to a screwdriver tip.

Excellent product
Tuesday, 14 February 2017  |  Stephen

I had a 120v model when I was in the US and upgraded it for 240v when I moved back to USA. I had gotten by for 20+ years with conventional soldering irons, but was never truly satisfied with the work I did with them. I eventually decided to check out the FX-888D and took the plunge. I really can't say enough good things about it - the difference from my old iron is unbelievable. The control and precision thanks to the digital feedback, combined with its rapid heating means you can do good work at speed. Yes, it is a lot of money, but the reward is definitely worth it.

Excellent soldering iron
Monday, 14 November 2016  |  Andrew

I was a bit annoyed with fixed-power soldering irons getting rather too hot, but it was manageable for through-hole components. Then I had to solder some surface-mount switches to repair a car key fob and the disaster of a lifted solder pad happened.

Off to EEVBlog I went, and a few YouTube videos later I was convinced that a proper temperature-controlled soldering iron was required.

The Hakko FX-888D is fantastic. I successfully soldered the tiny little switches. It also has enough power to solder large connectors without freezing or overheating the solder. The supplied stand is cast metal and fits the very comfortable to use iron perfectly. The designer even had enough pride in his work to put his signature on the base unit.

I got a Hakko T18-D24 tip for it (elsewhere) too because the supplied small conical tip (T18-B) isn't ideal for everything.

I highly recommend this soldering station.

Hakko FX-888D Blu/Yellow
Tuesday, 11 October 2016  |  Paul

I've had many irons and stations in the past and always had to make do. So I decided to treat myself to one I have wanted for a long time. This one is absolutely brilliant. I do not have any regrets for mypurchase. The quality is outstanding. This company supplied my machine and delivered it the next day.Paul
