New Arrivals in 2019
Conair Unbound Cordless Auto Curler is diffrent from the rest for its design and how your curl your hair on the go. It works much like a hair curler (or rotating curler) but it’s cable-free and rechargeable. You place the hair section into curl chamber, press and hold the button to draw hair into the chamber, wait for a while and pull away to release, voilà!
Pros: Wireless. It’s easy to use, once you figure out the right amount of hair should go in the chamber. Can charge your handsets and Bluetooth headsets. If you like tight curls this iron would be good.
Cons: the chamber is small, sometimes its is difficult to slide hair in. Beeping may be annoying. The heat distrubution is not even and it’s not comfortable to hold.
A couple of cordless flat irons’ cons
- They don’t get hot enough
- The charge runs out quickly
- You have to wait for a while until it gets hot.
- It just works nicely on a small section of hair, not recommended for thick, long hair (hair that has a hard time curling)
The cordless curling iron would have a larger built-in battery, making it possible for longer lasting battery but this on the other hand is less portable. A good thing? most of them include an adapter to fit Cigarette lighter so you can charge it on the go in your car
It should be noted that if you are charging your flat iron in your car, let’s say you leave it charged for a moment and go to buy something in a convenience store – this is not the best practice. I never leave my battery operated deviced charged in my car when I’m not there, just shut off the engine of your car before you leave.
Though all cordless curling irons have been properly tested by users and experts none of them are my favorite, I’m not a big fan of cordless experience well until recently the battery tech is pretty inovated, they can hold charge longer and boost the power, if the next gen of battery is used for hair tools, I would be more preferable to stuff them in my roller for the next trip.
