I forget the model number, but a Weller 80W (90W?) I was given recently, with a chisel tip the size of my pinky, easily and quickly solders 10g wire to the ends of NiMH F-cells, without having to be there long enough to make the whole wire and cell top hot. Maybe a second or two at most.
It's hot enough that when I needed to quickly lap solder two 10G wires together as a quick fix, and I had no way to hold the wires other than to press them against a steel top of a piece of equipment, that they soldered anyway, despite the steel carrying away some of the heat.
The iron handle is a pinkish red like a lot of Weller stuff, and it has a neon orange lamp in the clear base of the element section to warn you it's plugged in, just in case you don't notice the heat waves coming off the end of it.
I don't know it's price, but I'm sure it was cheap, and the friend that got it for me got it for half price, too, at a shutting-down ACE hardware store (while getting himself one, too).
EDIT: I think it is this one, but mine looked a bit different:
