I ordered this product from Amazon and just got it this week. I absolutely love it and it's exactly what I was looking for.

It heats up very quickly, less than the promised 30 seconds. The size is perfect for travel and fits in a purse. The pouch that it comes with fits not only the flat iron but the cord as well, although it takes a little positioning for that. As opposed to the other mini-flat irons, there's no awkward glove to prevent burning; there are round grips on either side that provide comfortable grip and control.
I bought it so that I could take it in my carry-on for my trip and I'm sure it will do perfectly. I also have really tight curls around my hairline and the regular sized iron can't get them really well but this one is absolutely perfect.

I only have 2 issues with it that prevented me from giving it well-deserved 5 stars. One is that I would have preferred some kind of a control over how hot I want it to get. The second is that there is very little plastic around the plates and because of the size, it's very easy to put the flat iron too close to your scalp which does hurt just a bit. But with a little practice, it's really easy to figure out what works best.

Overall, I greatly recommend this product.

Emphasis on little!

I had this straightener only for a few weeks, but returned it because it was just too small for me, unfortunately. As for the iron itself, it worked great, made my hair completely straight and it would heat up really fast. Using the iron for me was time consuming because of its tiny size, but I am not going to say that was a "con" necessarily, regarding the actual iron. My hair is about medium length, but I thought I would still be able to straighten it rather quickly. However, since it was so small, I was only able to take very small sections of hair, therefore it would take about 45 minutes to flat iron all my hair. Please keep in mind that's not because it didn't do a good job flat ironing my hair, but only because of its size. My hair did stay straight for a few days (I wash my hair about twice a week, and my hair would stay straight from the time I ironed it until the time I washed it again), and held up well in humid weather. For some, the fact that the iron does not have multiple heat settings might be annoying, but it's a mini flat iron, the temperature is "just right". There's no need for multiple settings. I would definitely recommend this iron for anyone who has short hair (shoulder length or shorter) - and someone who has fine or thin hair. This iron also comes with a really cute thermal pouch that can fit into any purse, makeup bag or overnight bag, which is a definite plus.

I bought this little gem for a business trip to Germany. Though the description doesn't say so, it is dual voltage and automatically switches to the correct voltage. You will need to buy a plug adapter if using it abroad, however, so don't overlook that detail.

It is indeed small...thus, the word mini in the title. It is about the same size as a small make up or pencil pouch. The flat iron and cord slide nicely into the heat proof pouch in case you need to put it away in a hurry.

I use it for all of my hair. It does take time to get through all of it, but it's a decent trade off when traveling. My hair is shoulder length and relatively thick. I used it on my hair in small pieces and it worked just fine. Because it's so small, I was also able to use it successfully to curl the ends of my hair. The plates are smooth and it slides through hair easily, but didn't seem too slippery.

Some of the reviews state that it didn't get hot enough and that the plates didn't align. That wasn't my experience and I imagine those might have been manufacturing defects. Or, if a person's hair is extremely fine, she might also find that her hair slips out.

I wouldn't recommend trying to use this flat iron for daily straightening unless you have very short hair, or if it is to be used for touch ups on the go. Otherwise, it's likely too small to be a good frustration-free tool. But, for travel, particularly international travel, I highly recommend it.

I have tried many different types of curling irons, finally settled on this little one (which is, ironically, not a curling iron)! I get long, straight and normal hair, and this little one can curl my hair nicely. If I want bigger waves, I just quickly slide it through my hair. If I want tighter curves, I just keep it on my hair a little longer. The small size is actually a plus in this case - I tried another flat iron with 1-inch width, but at the end I prefer this smaller size (0.5-inch width) for easy manipulation. I haven't tried it for straightening, since my hair is pretty straight already. But as a curling tool, this rocks.

There is no temperature control, however, I just need to test it out a little to get the right timing to curl my hair. Temperature is important, but timing is also crucial.

Another big plus is it's dual voltage, with a heat resistant pouch for storage. Nice touch.

The only downside is (I guess with many styling irons) that the end can get hot. I need to hold the end since I am doing curling, not straightening. No biggie, I shall just get a heat resistant glove.

N.B. If you want to know how to curl with a flat iron, just search on the internet. Very easy to do.
