This glue gun is awesome to say the least. It heats up in a matter of seconds. The charger also acts as a holder for the glue gun while it heats up. It has a little tray that comes out too that catches the glue drippings. I thought that was a pretty neat little addition to it as well. The cordless feature of it, makes it so simple to just get it out, and start using. It was nice it came with glue sticks as well, although I wasn't thrilled they were all glitter ones.
