About this deal

We have a low powered Argos hair dryer (wife's use only) which runs at a maximum of 1200W from a 2000/4000W inverter running on two 95Ah leisure batteries which are recharged with 250W of solar panels on the roof. Can also be powered from a 24v vehicle with a suitable voltage dropper, or from a 12 volt power station on the campsite or at the festival.

It doesn't take much power and is okay on cold but very "mild" and blows very lightly when turned to "warm" setting.The User portable hair dryer features two speed and heat settings as well as an overheating protection making it incredibly safe. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. But in modern times, let’s face it, we all want to look our best and even when we are getting back to nature, we’ll still need some of our creature comforts. To help the environment we re-use boxes, so deliveries may come in incorrectly marked outer packaging.

Please note this is a low wattage 12-volt hairdryer do not expect a tornado of hot air equivalent to a Dyson! we are going away bank holiday and we are going to take a hairdryer with us, will it be ok to use this with the electric hook up or does it need to be a different voltage than we use at home.Dont also forget your EHU unit in the tent will have a limit as well, usually 10 or 16amp (10amp being most common) so if your EHU is 10amp even though the campsite is 16 amp you would still be limited to 10. Would take a long time to dry from wet but guess this is problem with 12v and the re-chargeable type are heavy and expensive and not that much better. Convert that to amps and make sure whatever you use does not exceed the amps that the campsite is supplying. If you have a portable mirror, you’ll be much more free to sit wherever you please to dry your hair. The Brunner Monsun comes with a generous 2-metre-long cable fitted with a standard 12volt UK plug (cigarette lighter socket).

To save you the hassle of having to trawl through products online, we have put together this list of what we consider to be the best 12v hair dryers available. These are excellent for camping for many reasons including their compact design which makes them easier to pack as well as being the perfect alternative to having to towel dry your hair. The hair dryer also has a nice aesthetic design and comes in a white and teal colour, which we realise isn’t essential, but it’s a nice touch. My rule of thumb is don't use two appliances that generate heat together, so I use my hairdryer from home but don't use it at the same time as the electric heater. They mention that it is not powerful, it blows cold air, and the heating elements just keep glowing hotter and smoking.As everyone mentioned, the only real solution is a low power mains travel hair dryer and an inverter. I've used this dryer many times this year while caravaning in remote areas of Scotland and it's dried my shoulder length fine hair in around 15 to 20 mins. Hopefully they get some good informative answers and can then treat electricity in tents with respect armed with a little knowledge.
