You likely spent a pile of money on your skis or snowboard so don’t run the risk of damaging them with a cheap iron. Precise temperature control of the base plate is vital for 2 reasons.
If your iron is too hot it can permanently melt the base of your board or skis and you also run the risk of your gear de-laming due to the glue melting
Different types of waxes (eg Cold,Warm,Universal Wax) melt at different temperatures. The iron needs to be at a specific temperature to ensure the wax melts correctly (and doesn’t burn / smoke) also ensuring the wax is spread evenly and absorbs into the base properly.

Wax Ironing Tips:
Set the temperature low enough to melt the wax but not to much so the wax smokes. Make sure the iron never touches any dry base,
Spread the wax evenly with a low to medium pressure, be patient go slowly but constantly moving, never stop in one place on the base.
