Designed to look like a thick pen, the Lepen Solder System is probably the sleekest of solder irons I have ever seen. The design is not all about looks though it addresses key issues like ergonomics, smoke absorption, safety and charging. The solder pen docks into the holder for charging, which also doubles up as a smoke absorber. Moonhwan points out that the Soldering Pen helps users to feed, melt, and desolder solder in an easy and comfortable way. I think I agree!
