1. Power Control Unit
The 40 Watt Electronic power unit gives precision temperature control with a very wide range of heat. It is especially good at holding steady temperatures at the cooler settings where some other brands go from too cold to "too hot" with no control in between. Even when on the move and encountering different line voltages you can reset the low-end adjustment so that your burner settings are like you have at home.
2. Super-Flex Heavy Duty (HD) Pen Cords
This comes with Optima's 16 gauge super-flex HD cords for only $4.00 more. If you have a heavy duty pen or plan on doing a lot of burnishing; this new cord is a "must have" item. The new cord is about the same diameter as some of our competitor's 18 gauge cord and keeps tip temperatures on the newer heavy duty pens rock steady! UPDATE! The HD cords have been made even more flexible than before. With over ten times the stranding of any other pen cord on the market the newest Optima 1 HD cords are so flexible and kink free you'll never be satisfied with anything else.
The Optima 1 (single or dual burner) now carries a life time parts and labor warranty against manufacturing defects for the power supply cord and pen body (as of Feb. 1st 1997). Burning tips are excluded as their use (or abuse) is beyond our control.
