Just got my Pinecil
Hey all.

I just got my Pinecil.  Immediately hooked it up to PD and tested it.  I'm impressed at how quickly it heats up given the wattage I allocated to it.  (I went into advanced settings and limited it to 15 watts, mostly to compare it to a similar-sized soldering pencil I had lying around.)  I did notice one thing odd though.  I didn't use it for very long (just long enough to dip the tip in some tinning compound and clean it), but the space around the "+" button seemed to get noticeably warm.  Not burning hot, mind you, but given that the housing is made out of plastic, it got warm enough to make me wonder how hot the components underneath were getting.  Anyone else noticed this?  Should I be concerned?
