I do have a Pinecil and have found it quite useful from the limited
use I have had of it, I would suggest getting alternate tips as the
conical one it comes with is not an ideal soldering shape. It takes
the same tips as the TS-100 but has support for USB-PD as a power
source which somewhat increases useful power sources over the TS-100
(though a board that requests 20 or 15 volts over USB-PD and outputs
it to a barrel jack can be used with the TS-100 if need be).
I would be very wary of buying one from AliExpress though since
counterfeits are apparently common currently and unhelpfully they bear
identical markings to the genuine product so are not easily
identifiable as clones
