This one has been making waves in a few circles I'm a part of: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MDTO6X7/

Heats up super fast, temp control is quite accurate, and it can be rigged to operate off of commonly available cordless power tool batteries thanks to its 12-24V operating range (which is stupid easy if you're in the dewalt camp since they make a battery adapter with a 12V power bung built in. Brilliant. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HLW5FYG/).
Thanks for the tip. Got one and flashed the firmware, love the form factor and size and weight! Perfect for my gig toolbox!

Recently got one of the Ryobi hybrid units (18vdc or 110vac), and it is perfect for my needs. Only complaint is that it goes into "power-save mode" too often when I am not using it for a few minutes.

I love my Weller Portasol, butane powered. So many places i have to work without convenient power nearby.
Fits easily in my tool pouch along with screwdrivers, pliers, etc. I keep a can of fuel in the truck.
I do have to change the tip every couple of years.

^^this

There are times when i prefer my butane iron to my electric just for the lack of "tether".
