I'm leaving for the UK next week, and I just wanted to double check before I took my curling iron with me. I have a universal adapter, and my Conair curling iron claims that it can handle the voltage change (AKA, it has "120/240V" written on the back like a standard computer/camera charger does). Since I really do need heat to fix my hair, can I be "pretty sure" that my iron won't blow up when I plug it in?
I don't want to destroy it, but if I can, I want to avoid having to waste the money on another one in the UK, especially considering I don't have any plans to return there after my five week trip (it's a study abroad).
Anybody have experience with a Conair product that claims worldwide voltage?
