Bosch PKP 3 : Not for heavy jobs but when a quick fix is

Can evolve into a better product that its now. While the basic features of the pump is “bosch ” standard there are some things you cant help but think coul d be better. The biggest peeve is the on/off button. The gun is not designed by someone who has used a glue gun even once. Gluen gun works best when the surfaces are fastened within the first 3-5 secs of applying molten glue. After ~5 secs the glue hardens and loses ability to bond. This can vary if you are leaving in a colder region/ time of the year. However at the same time one needs to put the gun off so as not to let the glue drip off the gun as its on. But having the button at the base of the gun means 1. You have to place the gun down.

I used this the day i received it and it’s wonderful. I’m making christmas wreaths and decorations. It does take a while to charge fully but gives over plenty of time between charges. I also like it’s 30% warning flashing lights which gives you time to think ahead before starting another big job.

Very good item, i use it regularly.

This product is well made, up to the usual. This product is well made, up to the usual standard of bosch tools. It works very well heating up quickly as stated and the glue does not leak when in use.

  • Nice product, recommended
  • Perfect for Crafting
  • Awesome little gluegun!

Bosch PKP 3.6 LI Cordless Glue Gun with Integrated 3.6 V Lithium-Ion Battery

  • 3.6 V lithium-ion battery technology – no memory effect, no self-discharge, always ready to use
  • Automatic glue retraction mechanism – No dripping
  • 15 second heat-up time – Always ready to use
  • Charging with Bosch micro USB charger
  • Energy-saving due to Auto-Off – automatic shutdown after 5 minutes of inactivity

Before purchasing it i was using a plug-in, cheap, glue gun that had no real length on the power cord. You basically had to sit right next to a socket and hunch down to use the glue gun. My only gripe with this is that it doesn’t hold much charge. I do switch it off in-between each use, and only use it for glueing down flaps on small pieces of cardboard that i use in packaging the jewellery items i send out, and yet it needs recharging quite often. I still wouldn’t go back to a normal glue gun though.

Excellent gun,just the right size and very quick heating up.

Just right for my poor dexterity, light and easy to handle. Just what i need for my crafting.

So good i’m buying a second one. . This is a great little machine. Smaller than it appeared in the picture but very nice to use. The 15 second ready from cold is great, and the auto shut off useful when you are around kids.

I read some cracking reviews for this gun, and was hopeful it was a good one, and on some levels it is, but on others, it’s a little disappointing. . It’s lightweight, and easy to use. The glue sticks load easily, and the glue distributes evenly when triggered. The gun has an automatic switch off system, which is handythe not so positives. . The charge does not last very long, and the gun cannot be used whilst charging. The glue drips quite a lot whilst not in use, so quite a lot is wasted. Sometimes when new sticks are loaded, or when the battery is running low, the glue gun just stops distributing glue all together, which is frustrating. Overall, i’m quite disappointed with the quality of the gun versus the price paid.

This is great for card making just love it.

Very useful tool for my collection sticks superbly well sticks to literally anything and everything.

I have the glue pen as well. I have the glue pen as well and performance wise, these two are identical. However, the glue gun feels more comfortable and steady at hand.

Absolutely fantastic wee gun. Absolutely fantastic wee gun, heats up very quickly and is light and easy to use. Should have got one year’s ago.

I have the glue pen as perfectly. I have the glue pen as properly and general performance sensible, these two are identical. Nevertheless, the glue gun feels more comfortable and continual at hand.

Taking into consideration the value and sizing of this product it turned out to be a tiny everyday living saver. Its heats up and is completely ready to operate in about seven seconds, if made use of conservatively (turning of amongst utilizes) it can very easily last two-three hours possibly burning by way of about twenty glue sticks. Only down tumble is when the batter dies it does acquire about two-3 several hours to recharge. Arrived swiftly and was very well packaged.

Does not final also lengthy on a charge. Not quite guaranteed what i expected, but i experienced hoped to glue the edges of my boxes i was intending to put up. Smallish, a4 dimensions cardboard boxs, but i still only acquired five carried out, right before it was flat. Could have returned it i guess, but it is handy. No doubt about that, have employed it for other little jobs, and its just about immediate warmth is its very best attribute. . Minimal application, but all in all a good addition to the toolbox :-).

A outstanding glue gun i use for papercraft, thoroughly clean, rapidly to warmth up, and very use friendly.

It’s incredibly helpful for a small work quick to use.

    I like this product the quality is up to the normal bosch standard and as i’ve now quite a range of bosch battery products i expect that the operational battery life will be as they have stated. It’s quick to heat up and so far we’ve seen no glue strings. It’s being used in a multiple roll, crafting as well as diy. I’ve a number of mains glue guns but you’re always tagged by the lead. I’ve tried other cordless battery glue guns and have always ended up disappointed. So far this one looks klike being a keeper. I’ll probably purchase nine bosch glue sticks as the oem products do seem very expensive.

    Considering the price and size of this item it turned out to be a little life saver. Its heats up and is ready to work in about 7 seconds, if used conservatively (turning of between uses) it can easily last 2-3 hours maybe burning through about 20 glue sticks. Only down fall is when the batter dies it does take about 2-3 hours to recharge. Arrived quickly and was very well packaged.

    1. Good glue gun, but doesn’t last long between charges (and regardless of what they say, it does drip) but as i wanted one with no cord, there were very few options than to buy this one. Very lightweight, and easy to handle. Unfortunately, it takes quite a while to get going, and sometimes comes out with either nothing or a big blob – not what i wanted from an expensive glue gun.

    Awesome little gluegunvery fast heat up timeonly issue is short battery life. It would be far batter with a bigger battery and also removable so it can be swapped.

    This is not the best gluegun by any stretch. I firstly didnt expect it to use mini glue sticks so you get about 3 pumps of glue before you reload. I would recommend just buying the regular bosch glue gun and just unplugging it briefly to use. If you cant get to any plug at all i guess its kind of useful but i’d maybe just look into other kinds of glue for those jobs. The price is way too high as it doesnt stand up to the regular glue guns by bosch yet is more expensive.

      1. With bosch you can’t go wrong. Great little glue gun so easy to use and control the flow of hot glue.
