I checked there they're out of stock.
I also need one but staki kungojea AliExpress wanitumie with KRA issues. My plan was to have Avechi import it for me from AliExpress. Coz I desperately need one. The prices are under 10k. So I'll call these stores nijue wata restock lini. Be wary of the quality of the soldering station. Some will only frustrate you. Niko na like 5 projects in my bucket list

Amazon ziko quality but how to go about it and shipping expenses and tax zinaniogopesha.
Pia AliExpress kuna quality ones with solid reviews. Shida ya Amazon ni ati shipping ineza zidi price of item. That's why I wanted to try AliExpress but with shipping from Avechi.

@Nyamgondho there's a good quick 857dw plus hot air soldering station on jumia at around 11k and based on reviews it is one of the best look for reviews of another hot air station by the company model type quiz 861dw by eevblog and Louis Rossman puts those devices at a good rating. Meanwhile I bought a cheaper one on AliExpress for a 3k shipping 1k by postal service outside Nairobi and it seems to be a better option where you are likely not to pay tax. Juu I have just picked a laptop motherboard and cpu bought on AliExpress without being asked for any custom duty.

@hadadoh thanks for the update. I plan to purchase mine this August. 3k sounds like an awesome bargain. I really can't continue with life without a soldering station.:D:D. Keep up the updates. Problem with Ali express is that it can take a month or two and I am not willing to wait that long. Vitu za jumia hazinanga enough reviews so I avoid them. Ali express unapata enough info from users.

But patience pays. I placed an order on 19th July for CPU and motherboard yet the order was delivered to kitale yesterday 31st July. The order for the hot air was placed on 20th and with China post registered mail I am sure I will be picking it next week.
