I have 2 iPod Touch 2G on hand which can't be used for anything more than paperweights. So, being that I have nothing to lose I would like to attempt to do some soldering work (either replacing a battery or connector).
Point being, I need a soldering iron that would be ideal for working with iPods/iPhones. I'm up to suggestions. Let's keep the price range reasonable.

not gonna find anything that will do that small of stuff for really cheap. you could make due with a regular soldering iron if your good at soldering but if your just starting/ not that good its gonna be tough

when you buy a soldering iron, be sure that the tips that you have are very small. I HAD the standard soldering iron, but working with it in such tight spaces and on such small parts is like trying to push a football with a mack truck. Yes, it does work, but...
when you get to taking it apart, use a hair dryer. cost less than a heat gun, and is just as effective for ipod 4th gen disassembly.
be careful, watch alot of youtube videos, and have fun learning.unklbyl
