Cordless Hair Straighteners – Battery Operated Flat Irons

Last update: Aug 22, 2017 09:32, Alice

If you’ve ever wanted to straighten your hair on-the-go and realized there’s no available PowerPoint nearby then a cordless hair straightener could, in fact, be a beneficial tool for you to possess. Battery operated flat irons don’t require the use of a cord when in use, so there’s no need to worry about making sure it has a long enough cord, with a swivel etc. – none of that matters if you have a cordless hair straightener because obviously, it has its own battery supply system. The performance ability is not quite as good as a flat iron with a cord but these cordless devices still get the job done for a lady on-the-go!

Just as you manage to keep your phone charged, you’ll need to get in the habit of keeping your cordless flat iron charged too if you decide to obtain one for yourself. Having a system of charging it overnight, every night is ideal because you know you’re not going to be left short when it comes to hairstyling, especially if you need to straighten away from home where there isn’t a possibility to juice up the battery.

Pros of having a cordless hair straightener

  • Straightening is much easier without the annoyance of keeping a cord out of the way and worrying whether or not the cord is a long enough length to comfortably style.
  • Ideal for someone who is often away from the comfort of their own home, where there may not always be an electric socket available to straighten hair strands, so the cordless straightener can simply be pulled out and used literally anywhere, as long as it’s charged up.
  • They’re made of a small enough size to be suitable for fitting in a handbag, which ensures your hair will always look immaculate before any event or meeting.
  • Several different designs accompanied with different prices.


  • The battery life doesn’t last as long as other wireless electric tools that can often last up to 2-3 hours. A cordless hair straighter battery life will not last any longer than one hour, usually 10-60 minutes. In addition to this, the higher the heat that’s dispensed from the device, the faster the battery life runs out.
  • It may not reach the temperature suitable for your hair type.
  • Batteries should be changed every month.

Cordless flat irons seem to be a great idea, but hopefully, they will become more advanced in the near future. To be quite honest there isn’t a whole lot to choose from and from which are available, some people haven’t been satisfied with the results as they don’t get hot enough or hot long enough for certain individuals to straighten their hair as their hair is thick. To finish up, I would like to honestly state that I believe cordless flat irons are a brilliant idea and absolutely perfect for someone that’s often on the go but I must say that these devices aren’t as powerful as usual straighteners that obtain an electric plug-in cord. Nonetheless, cordless straighteners are still suitable for those with fine/thin-normal hair, or for any hair type that simply needs to touch up and get rid of fly-always or put their bangs in order.
