I accidentally bought a look-alike of the Hakko FX-888D. The supplier's Ts&Cs included prohibitive conditions around a refund, so I'm trying to live with it. I don't want to send good money chasing after bad, so I'd like to figure out if there are any genuine Hakko tips I can use.
The tip fits over the ceramic part of the heater - the white part in the photo. The dimensions (measured using the ruler in the picture) of visible part of the fake heater are:
- diameter (green line): 3.5mm
- length (yellow line): 25mm
I've spent some time on the Hakko website trying to find the comparable dimensions of the genuine product, but it hasn't been very productive.
What are the comparable dimensions of the Hakko FX-888D?
