The Kipozi V7 arrived beautifully packaged, far above the expectations we had for a product in this price bracket. As well as the straightener/curling iron you also get a heat resistant glove, salon comb, two salon hair clips, a velvet pouch and that lovely gift box.
The build quality feels robust and looks sleek with a rose gold finish, it features a generous 8ft long, tangle free 360° swivel cord to allow you to comfortably reach your mirror without rearranging the furniture. It is made with worldwide voltage 100-240V, ensuring you can take it on your travels. The 3D floating plates are made from nano-titanium. This material heats up quickly and evenly getting up to the required temperature in just 30 seconds (lowest temperature), with the smooth finish preventing tugging and pulling the hair and that floating effect lets the plates adjust to compression when styling, with shock absorption underneath. The PTC smart temperature twist-heat-system allows for fast straightening at a constant and adjustable temperature to protect all heat types from heat damage, set it between 130˚C and then increase it 10˚C steps all the way up to 230˚C with a twist of the handle.
The handle can be used to lock the plates together, simply pull the handle down away from the plates to release the locking system, the rounded barrel makes for easy curling with just a twist and wrap without leaving dents in the hair. For safety the V7 will automatically switch off after 60 minutes to ensure you can’t accidently leave them on before heading out the house, whilst the LED indicators will let you know when the tongs are switched on and off. We were pleasantly surprised with the Kipozi V7, a brand we hadn’t come across before at a reasonable price, rather beautifully packaged with quality accessories and a decent performance. When curling the length cable can slow things down a little as it’s a bit heavy and inflexible but it gets easier with practise, we would like to see a way to lock the temperature as the handle can be twisted by accident.
