Can I  use my Dyson Airwrap™ multi-styler, Dyson Airstrait™ straightener, Dyson Supersonic™, Dyson Supersonic r™ or Dyson Supersonic Nural™ hair dryer abroad/overseas?

 

The Dyson Airwrap™ multi-styler, Dyson Supersonic™, Dyson Supersonic r™ and Dyson Supersonic Nural™ hair dryers, and Dyson Airstrait™ straightener, have been precisely engineered for use with the standard voltage of the country they were purchased in.

Using any of these machines in a country where the voltage range differs to the country of purchase could result in permanent damage being caused. A machine manufactured for use in one country may become inoperable in another. Please follow the guidance on usage in the guarantee section of your User guide.

The only device in our hair care range that is currently rated for universal use is our Dyson Corrale™ straightener. This has been engineered for travel, and styling on the go.

Your Dyson guarantee is valid in the country of purchase, and covers failures due to manufacturing faults. This wouldn’t extend to relocating to another country, or using the machine on a voltage it wasn’t engineered to work with.

Can I use an adaptor, convertor or electrical transformer?

 

We advise against using your Dyson hair care machine in another country with an adaptor, converter or transformer. As we haven’t manufactured or tested the adaptor ourselves, we can’t be confident of its quality or safety, and we can’t guarantee it won’t cause permanent damage to your Dyson machine. For this reason, any damage caused by using your machine with a converter or adaptor may not be covered under the terms of your Dyson guarantee.

I am so upset I could cry😢 when you bought my Dyson Airwrap (saved and got it brand new) nowhere did it state that it only works in the country I purchased it in. I got it so I could take it with me when I move to America later this year and come to find out I cannot do that.. it’s so upsetting that Dyson is keeping that under wraps so to speak.. it should be all over the Airwrap page… now I’m out £600 and can’t use it.. honestly.. I don’t know what to do.. is there anything I can do to make it work in the states?

@Ineta I said it before and I will say it again, this isn’t new! They’ve never guaranteed use internationally, on any of their products, they just don’t plaster it all over their products!

If you read the fine print in the manual, they have a line that absolves them of any responsibility in case the machine malfunctions. You use it overseas at your own risk! 

If you wanted to use it, you might want to investigate a step up converter. This changes the local voltage into a higher one for use with electrical products purchased overseas.

@Stuart Hello Stuart! I read your post about using Dyson airwrap abroad and I see that Dyson don’t recommend to use the machine in countries with different voltages. But what about the plugs? I mean for example I have Dyson airwrap with Chinese plug (voltage in China is 220), can I use it with plug adapter in Spain where the voltage is the same but the plug is different?

Hi @kessi,

Thanks for your question!

Where the voltage of the country you purchased from and the country you’re travelling to are the same, your machine should work as normal. But please note, we don’t recommend using a travel adaptor with your machine as we can’t guarantee it won’t cause damage. As the adaptor hasn’t been manufactured or tested by Dyson, we’re not in a position to offer any assurances around its safety, quality or functionality. For this reason, we have to advise that any damage caused as a result of using a travel adaptor may not be covered under your Dyson guarantee - so any repair or replacement parts needed in future could be chargeable.

I hope this helps with your decision-making!

Can I use an adaptor or an electrical convertor?

“We don’t suggest the use of an adaptor or converter to use your device in another country...”

...good to know.  Thanks for the info, Stuart.  :)
