Question

Will this work with a 30W flat iron?

Ah, I see now why they said it shouldn't be used for an iron over 25 watts. That's only on the low setting. Flip the switch to HI and you can power an iron rated between 25 and 1875 watts. That's enough for any job!

You should be perfectly fine using a 30 watt iron of any kind, as this converter is rated for appliances up to 1875 watts.

I don't know why Canadian Tire staff said no, as this contradicts the labeling right on the package. I believe the only cases where you should be more careful is with inductive loads (e.g. large AC motors) or tungsten (e.g. high wattage incandescent light bulbs), but even there you should be fine up to a good percentage of the 1875 watt resistive rating.

Question

Can I use this on the high setting with a curling iron that is over 25 watts?

The back of the package says use the high setting for 26-1875 watts irons, steamers, hair dryers etc.

But below it says do not use with electronic appliances exceeding 25 watts.

My curling iron is 85 watts and my hair crimper is 180 watts.

It works fine with any products on high wattage for maximum 1 hour (they recommend 30 minutes maximum) and on low wattage for continuous usage (I.E.: charging electronics overnight)

Here is the information from the instructions manual:

LOW WATT SETTING
For use with battery chargers, electric
shavers, radios, curling irons, etc. that are
less than 25 watts. The low setting can be
used for long periods of time on products
with electronic circuitry that is rated 0 to 25
watts, e.g., battery chargers, radios, etc.

HIGH WATT SETTING
For clothes irons, steamers, some hair dryers,
etc., from 26 to 1875 watts. DO NOT
use the high setting for electronic circuitry
products. The high setting is designed to
be used only for short periods of time
(approximately 30 minutes)

You can use this with your curling iron and crimper.
