Users praise the convenience of the Conair ThermaCell Cordless Curling Iron, which is powered by butane rather than electricity. Consumers say it is ideal for traveling, camping and touch-ups in the office. It is compact and includes a carrying case, making it easy to tote in a purse or gym bag. Of course, the Conair ThermaCell Cordless Curling Iron trades features for convenience. It doesn't have variable heat settings, and some users say that it never gets as hot as standard curling irons. Although it is lightweight and very portable, reviewers point out that you cannot bring the butane cartridges on an airplane, and they can be difficult to find in stores. If you prefer a standard curling iron, the Hot Tools Professional Spring Curling Iron (Est. $35) gets good reviews.
