If only there was some extra balls in case you drop some it wouldn't be a problem. I agree that the iron tip is a waste, you are never gonna switch between the soldering tip and the vaping tip because in a week you won't have any balls left. I tried the remove the tip after I had put the balls the first time to switch for my other balls to see if they would do, I broke two of them because they get stuck in a gap at the base of the ceramic and when you unscrew the tip they have no space to move and they crack. I had to be careful the second time I removed the tip and I had to waste a minute to unstuck the balls again with a pick.
