How wireless irons work
The device consists of the iron itself and the base, which heats the plate. The approximate heating time is 10 seconds. Ironing time will depend on the specific model and can range from 30 seconds to several minutes. Some devices have a beep that indicates that it is necessary to place the product on the base. These devices have a number of advantages and disadvantages compared to conventional wired models. The most important thing is the lack of wire. Indeed, in many stationary models it is the twisting of the wire that causes breakdowns. Also, wireless models have the ability to reach anywhere, and this makes it easy to smooth out all the folds. This makes it possible to iron with any hand, without adapting to the wire.
However, for a number of advantages, the following disadvantages can be noted: Because of the frequent placement at the base, it becomes difficult to iron clothes made from complex fabrics; The need to control the level of heating of the sole; Do not place the iron in an upright position, as this will damage it. Recommendations for using the device In order to have as few questions as possible during the process, you need to study the manufacturer’s recommendations for working with the device. First you need: Set the correct mode for the fabric; It is recommended to set the required temperature before connecting the device to the network. Since otherwise, it may cause damage to the temperature controller. Watch for sound or light signals on the product, as they indicate readiness for work; If you need to interrupt, put the iron on a stand; In the event that the iron is on the base for more than 2 minutes, and it is connected to the network, most models trigger the auto power off function.
Rules for product selection
In order not to make a mistake when buying a product, you need to know what points you should pay attention to. For example: Convenience of the stand; Heating and cooling time; Power; Sound accompaniment; Use cases with wire; Sole; Availability of additional features. The presence of a stand is a mandatory attribute that should be included with the iron. Since it is from her that he is charging. In the store, you can ask the seller to install the model on a stand and see how much they find contacts, and whether it is necessary to make some efforts. The heating time and duration of work is a very important criterion, since it depends on it how long you can work without recharging. The charging speed is also very important, because it depends on how quickly you can get to work. The power will depend on how well the device will cope with complex folds on the fabric. But it is worth remembering that the more watts, the higher the cost of the iron. The ability to use directly from the network will also be a nice bonus for the model. Indeed, some are sometimes more used to working the old fashioned way than working with an iron on a stand.
The soundtrack function will also be convenient. Then you can focus on the signal when the device is ready for use, or when it needs to be placed on a stand for recharging. This makes it possible to speed up the ironing process. Pay attention to the sole. It should be non-stick and have the same temperature over the entire surface. A set of additional functions is also an important aspect to which you should pay attention. This always comes as a pleasant bonus to the joy of the hostess. Some models have a vertical steam function, self-cleaning system and remote control. Of course, all this affects the cost of the product, so everyone decides for himself whether it is worth paying for it.
