Butane curling irons - allowed on aircraft?

Jump to last reply

I read conflicting information about whether or not I can take my butane curling iron with me on an airplane. This is such an incredibly handy tool to have with me on international trips as it eliminates the need for a converter - which run too hot anyway and fry my hair. I have read that it is permissible in either carry-on or checked baggage as long as the protective cover is in place, but that extra cartridges are not allowed. I have also read where these items are not allowed at all. The TSA website doesn't explain in detail the policy for this type of appliance. Does anyone have the answer to this question?

Thanks
