Mini irons offer the convenience of a an easy-to-grab iron while avoiding the bulk and the occasional tediousness of a traditional iron.

A mini iron is simply a tiny version of a traditional iron. They are the perfect size for pressing a seam on a garment or when quilting.

They also slip nicely into delicate corners and are perfect for working around trims.

As far as disadvantages, well, they're small, so while one can be used to press a large item, the size makes them less than ideal for pressing entire garments.
