Where's the heat?!
Reviewed in the United States on May 20, 2019
Firstly, I put a lot of weight into purchasing an item by its previous reviews and I have to be honest, I'm not really sure why this product is getting such high marks. First thing that I noticed when I removed the item from the box was how light it was, caused me some concern as when it comes to electronics, a device being light has never indicated a great product. The second thing I noticed upon proceeding to plug the device in, was that the prongs did not have holes in them. The purpose of holes in the prongs (besides material savings) is to ensure the plug is gripped while in the socket so the plug doesn't slip out due to the weight of the cord. Why is that important to know? Well, because the plug kept slipping out of the socket. This became more obvious by the red light not staying on. This leads me to the last item I noticed about the device, it would not achieve a high amount of heat. In fact, the straightener seemed to only get luke warm. I tried a few things to stabilize the plug but in the end, I decided the product wasn't worth the trouble of securing the plug every time I used it, without even knowing if the heat was going to go any higher. End result was that the straightener never worked on my beard and I returned it.
