Ok, I have a question that I am dying to straighten out. I have a location photo shoot next saturday and my hair stylist needs to use a flat iron on the model. She has an iron that plugs into an outlet so I was thinking of getting one of those power inverters for the car that uses the cigarette lighter for the power source. The only question I have is that because I'm using it for something that is generating heat will it work? It says that it can power small appliances but things that generate heat are always different somehow.. Thanks again for any insight!!
