This compact little travel steamer is not cheap anymore, it’s on sale on Amazon US for around $25, we used to source them at around £20 – £30 in UK.
If you want one ( if your a frequent traveler it’s a must have ) we advise looking on e-bay to see if you can find a cheaper price. Or if you travel to the US pick up one in Walmart for $22.99 (May 2018 price)
A shame as we found it to be the ideal travel steamer.
Its advantages are:
- It’s small,13.4cmx 8.2cm x 18.8cm
- Lightweight 0.77 Kg.
- Easy to use
- It has a universal voltage capability and will work at any mains voltage from 100 to 240 volts, meaning you can use it anywhere in the world (you may need a UK to local adapter plug)
As a lightweight travel steamer its not as big or powerful as a home model, 265 watts and a 60ml water tank, which heats up to the 98°C operating temperature in 2 minutes.
Still it’s powerful enough to decrease and freshen clothes, we tried one on a pair of jeans and a crumpled linen jacket, a couple of minutes and it removed all the wrinkles and creases.
When full the TS-01 gives up to 10 minutes of continuous steam, there is a patented back-flow system that prevents water from pouring or spitting out.
The handle doubles up as a handy measuring jug to give to the exact amount of water for the steamer, there is a viewing widow on the tank so you check the water level as you go.
Cord length 1.98metres (6.5ft)
