You need to make sure that the iron power consumption is below 1600W- ideally 1500 or lower. Most travel irons are in the region of 709 to 900W... And you may find some cheaper domestic irons that use around 1200W. A look around should show you suitable ones. Bear in mind that a prolonged ironing session would be best done with the engine running due to power consumption

The 7 to 900 watt Iron is the one to use, after all you NEVER drive your car flat out so why use a device that requires your inverter to work flat out
