    Has anyone used a 12 volt hair dryer?

    If so what do you think of them?

    What would you say is the best wattage for power saving and to get the job done in a van?

    It took so long to dry my hair that my hair fell out still wet...:Sad:

    Would it not have been easier (and quicker) just to go outside and dry the hair in the Portuguese sun? :Rofl1:

    We have one somewhere and it is all but useless. In the end I bought a 400watt styling brush. The brush pulls of the end and then you have a mini hair dryier, to use with an inverter. We lasted 7 days with a 85amp battery use solely for Lynns hair, but she tends just to do the front and sides.

    Yes ive got one Ralph got me it . Its got the strongest blow for the power :Wink:
    Obviously they are not as powerful as the ones you use at home ( noisier yes:RollEyes:) but they do the job , it just takes a little bit longer. Just make sure you take smaller sections of hair , then normal when using it. I also have some ceramic straighteners that plug into the lighter socket. My hair is thick and coarse and i manage to get more or less the same result using my MH equipment as i get using the proper stuff at home.
