Can this be used to solder copper pipe fittings?

Will one of these small torches work for soldering residential 1/2" copper pipe and fittings?

Yep, that's what thousands of plumbers use.

And if you ever start doing things where the torch doesn't produce enough heat you can switch to MAPP gas. It's more expensive but it burns hotter. Not needed for sweating the 1/2" piping you mentioned. Propane works just fine for that.
