I purchased a T3 single pass styling wand several months ago.  I have recently started to use it regularly, and I loved the way it gave me natural looking waves.  I have always used it with the heat glove.  Yesterday I was almost finished using it before going to a concert, when I put it down on the counter to look in the mirror at the back of my head.  I picked it up, inadvertently palming the hot side of the wand.  I got a pretty significant burn to the inside of my fingers on my right hand.  
When I look at the design of the product, it seems so easy to make an error like I did and touch the hot end because the entire wand is the same white color.  With older, traditional curling irons with a clamp handle, it would be almost impossible to grab the hot end because the handle is usually a black or white color and the hot part is chrome.  With this T3 product, I think my brain failed to see that I was lifting the wrong side.
I don't want this to happen to anyone else.  I'm afraid to use the product now even though I loved the waves it gave me.
I just wanted to give you my comments.
