Talking Cordless Glue Gun

Hi Ladies~
I know there was a thread somewhere that someone was asking about a cordless glue gun. Well I was doing some last minute shopping at Target and what did I come across on CLEARANCE??????

Cordless Glue Guns | ColdHeat

This has a battery pack like a cordelss drill, so that means we can take our glue guns to shows and still be able to work. I haven't opened it yet since I have been so buy, but for $21.00, I am willing to take a chance. They say for best results to use their glue, but I am just going to use my regular mini's. The guns are only $24.99 on the coldheat web site and free shipping.

Just FYI
Have a Great night Ladies!!!

it says "no drip tip" I would love that! Can you tell us once you get a chance to try it out, it the tip will make a fine line? I'm thinking seriously of getting the one Rene was talking about that has different tips, including one for fine work. Aileen's. Thanks in advance!

You know I bought a "cordless" glue gun at Michaels hoping for just that but instead what I got was a glue gun with a removable cord that cools off almost as soon as it's unplugged! GRRR! I guess I should have paid attention and made sure it had batteries! DUH!
I could really use one of those. Just imagine how much time is wasted in the car just sitting there! LOL

Yea I got one of "those" "cordless" I was so shocked when I realized that cordless meant "use before it cools!"

Which glue gun is that? Sounds interesting - especially that it will do fine lines. I have one of the mini low temp ones - it does ok, but I end up getting glue strings everywhere.....on the bows, on me, on the chair where I work on my bows. It would be great to have one that's cordless (w/batteries) & that does fine work.

The one I have has a detachable cord but is not cordless (w/batteries). I have never used it in this capacity, but think that you would only be able to remove the cord and use it for a quick fix, then plug it back in (I'll have to get the book out and see). The name of it is the Ultimate Glue Gun by Aileen. You can buy it at Michael's. I like it alot, but might buy this one also to have just for when I am out and about; that is if we get a good report on how it performs. I'll be waiting to hear.

It is disappointing that the battery goes so quick. I need to see what they charge for extra batteries. May still be worth it. We camp all Spring-Fall and this would make taking bows along so much easier!

Looks like extra batteries are $9.99. I wish I had seen this before Christmas. My DMIL and DSIL have been wondering what to get me.
