Update on 900M Series Soldering Tips

Switch to T18 Soldering Tip

Looking for a replacement for your 900M Series Soldering Tips?

The 900M Series were the original tips used for the FX-888 Soldering Station, which was discontinued 10 years ago.

When the analog FX-888 was replaced with the digital FX-888D Soldering Station, the 900M tips were replaced with the T18 Series, which boasts a higher heat capacity and provides a much quicker and efficient soldering experience.

For the best soldering performance, Hakko recommends switching from the 900M to the T18 Series for soldering tips with better heat recovery. Read on below for the applicable models and thermal recovery performance.
