ThermaCell Compact Curling Iron

Updated on October 10, 2014

A woman can't be without a curling iron when traveling; even camping! A cordless curling iron is just what you need. No plugin needed, its cordless! Sometimes there aren't plugins to use while on your trips so a cordless curling iron comes in handy to style your hair.

When I was in the Academy we traveled on a bus for our choir trips. Many times we had to get ready on the bus. We'd have to fix our hair so it looked somewhat decent. A cordless curling did the trick of fixing the flatness into cute curls for our programs. When I first received this as a gift I had a few doubts it wouldn't hold up to a good heat for curling but it proved me wrong. It heated up very nicely and worked great for styling my hair. It runs on a butane gas cartridge. I remember when I first turned it on waiting for it to heat up. It didn't take long at all to my surprise. I took a piece of my hair and wound it up into the iron. Waited a bit and took it out. I had a nice curl. I was really glad to have gotten it for a gift. It was such handy dandy travel gadget that I never wanted to be without it again. Mine came with a protective cap and a brush which was nice. The brush slid on an off very easily. I liked that it was versatile from the straight to the brush.

Even later in years now when I travel I still continue to take it with me. I still have the same one from back then in Academy. It's held up a long time for me; very durable! I still love the ease of styling my hair with it.

Reviews by Others

First review is pretty cute in how she explains about the curling iron. The second is about a cordless straightener iron. I've used a straightener a few times but didn't know there was a cordless one. Good to know what is out there that you might need to get to take on your trip especially something cordless!

Have you used a compact cordless curling iron before?

      Probably wouldn't take it camping, but a cordless curling iron would be so handy in so many other situations!
