Purchasing a Dyson Airwrap is an investment in your appearance. So, when traveling, not only do you want to keep the device safe, but you want it to work where you’re headed.
The following is a brief guide about traveling with your Dyson Airwrap. Here, you can learn all about transporting and using your device no matter where you go.
Where Does the Dyson Airwrap Work?
Your Dyson Airwrap will work anywhere in North America. So, if you’re planning a road trip across the United States or Canada, your Dyson Airwrap will be fine. Simply plug in the device, and you’re good to go.
Matters change if you’re traveling to another country, like Europe. Places like England, Scotland, and Wales use different outlets than those in North America––and they are only compatible with devices purchased in Europe. They’re lovingly called “Europlugs.”
But don’t worry. If you want to use your Dyson Airwrap overseas, you can purchase an adapter, like the European Travel Plug Adapter. It works anywhere in the United Kingdom, Greece, France, and Spain.
Why Use a Travel Adapter with the Dyson Airwrap?
Your Dyson Airwrap needs a steady supply of energy to work. However, how much energy your device needs depends on where it was sold. For instance, if you purchased your device in Canada, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, or the United States, it needs 100 to 127 volts to work.
Matters change if you purchased the device in any of these countries:
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- The United Kingdom
If you purchased your Airwrap in any of these locations, you’d need 220 to 240 volts for it to work. In this situation, you might consider purchasing a power adapter, like the BESTEK Universal Travel Adapter.
When traveling abroad, you plug in the adapter, and it lowers the voltage to match your Airwrap’s needs. This particular model lowers a 220-volt outlet to 110 volts––making it ideal for using your device.
How to Travel with Your Dyson Airwrap
Make no mistake; even though your Dyson Airwrap looks sturdy, it’s actually pretty delicate. So, when traveling with your device, pack it snugly. You don’t want it to move around in transit, as this will damage the barrel.
You can pack your Dyson Airwrap by wrapping it in bubble wrap, plastic wrap, or even your clothes. You can also purchase a carrying case through Dyson’s website. This device will keep your Airwrap safe during your travels. It also has special compartments for the Airwrap’s many attachments.
You don’t have to worry about these things when traveling with your styling tool:
- Temperature. Your Dyson Airwrap can withstand hot climates and freezing cold temperatures.
- Fires and burns. Your Dyson Airwrap is not a fire hazard when it’s not plugged in. So, when packing, you don’t have to worry about it damaging your belongings.
- Cracks. The metal barrels won’t crack. However, they can bend or dent, making it imperative to pack them delicately.
Best of all, you don’t have to worry about your Airwrap being too large to transport. It can easily fit in a backpack, large purse, or carry-on suitcase. Of course, you can always pack it in a carrying case specially designed for your Airwrap.
Things to Avoid When Traveling with Your Dyson Airwrap
Don’t just toss your Dyson Airwrap into a backpack and head out the door. Again, you don’t want it to move at all. You should avoid:
- Having the Airwrap pressed against a hard item, like a laptop or book. If the device shifts during your travels, the hard surface could damage the barrel. While this wouldn’t stop it from working altogether, it would make styling your hair difficult.
- Winding the cord around the Airwrap. If you wrap the cord around the Airwrap, you risk damaging the power cord. This would stop the device from working.
- Putting a freshly-used Airwrap in your suitcase. Your Dyson Airwrap reaches temperatures of around 300 degrees Fahrenheit. If you use the device and quickly stuff it in your suitcase, it’s a fire hazard.
A Final Word
When traveling with your Dyson Airwrap, pack it tightly surrounded by soft material, like clothing or plastic wrap. Also, you might need to purchase an adapter if you’re traveling to Europe or Asia. To learn more about your device, consult Dyson’s website.
