The "L" in solder comes from Latin roots for solid or fasten together, but in Old French, the "L" was dropped ("soudure").
Your noname brand was a lying if it couldn't even melt solder at 60W. 30W should be more than sufficient for melting solder on a PCB, and I think you should be happy with the Weller. Make sure you get a tip that is appropriately sized for your project. If it's too big you will cook the board, and if it's too small if won't be able to transfer heat. If you buy another tip, make sure it's a brand name one. The cheap ones don't tin and will never work right. And go watch a few youtube videos on how to solder. It isn't that hard but there is some skill involved.
Previous deals had other items with the solder granted it was cheaper quality. Here is an example

Good price on a name brand. Microcenter had a Weller station for $25 that I jumped on or I would be all over this.

That one from Harbor Freight has actually held up really well. But after getting better irons, i don't really use it for soldering anymore. I use it to melt/cut/weld light plastics so I don't mess up better ones. I actually welded together a Hoover vac my wife dropped down the stairs with it. Now that, was a ton of welding! laugh out loud

What kind of accessories? You just need solder and a sponge (or wet paper towel, in a pinch).

I didn't know that plastic weld was a thing... I bought a plastic welder from harbor freight and did some fun repairs with it.

I bought a 60W no name brand soldering iron. This is half the wattage from a brand name.

The one I bought was not able to get the solder from electronics (ie a Kindle fire tablet) hot enough to actually be able to replace the port.

Would this one be capable to provide more heat at half the wattage? I havve zero knowledge of soldering irons.

I ordered two.

Pretty sure I paid close to $40 on Amazon a few months ago for that station. This is killing me haha.
