Hitec X2 AC Pro: A Charger That Solders or a Soldering Iron That Charges?

Hitec X2 AC Pro: A Charger That Solders or a Soldering Iron That Charges?

Answer: It’s a charger, of course. But it can indeed solder as well, and the iron is included. It’s no slouch, either; Hitec claims the 60 watt iron can get as hot as 840°F, which is plenty for any RC need. As for charging, we’re looking at dual outputs and a combined output of up to 200 watts, 10 amps max charge rate, and USB for WiFi and PC inteface–plus all the other stuff in the press release below. Now all we need is a charger with a built in mini-fridge, and we’ll really have a dialed pit space.
