Default Re: Re: Can I bring an iron? Is there one available on the

I agree with ya' Antlerhead, any electrical device can pose a hazard but in the case of a laptop, for instance, or say a boom box, an electrical short will trip the breaker or fuse.

In the case of steamers and irons, these electrical devices are designed to dissipate heat and will do so without shorting the circuit. I guess a steamer is safer, yet I don't think people realize they are still a risk.
