Never leave a campsite with your clothes line tied to a lamp post.
SWMB needs to be able to dry her hair when wilding and our travel hair dryer is rated at 1600W according to the blurb. When I look at inverters on Amazon there seems to be a lot of choice around the £25.00 mark but these are only rated at 300W. How do you guys get around this? Do we need a lower power hairdryer or an much more powerful (and expensive) inverter?

Tell her it is not practical..
you would need to invest in a large battery bank and a wallet bustin' 2,000watt inverter ..

at 12volts, a 1600watt dryer will pull 133 amps.. normal leisure batteries are not designed for such heavy loads .. so you would need to invest in traction batteries

Get her a bike and tell her to peddle fast? (y)

Many thanks for all replies (both practical and tongue in cheek....I hope), I think we will have to get near EHU on "hair dry days"
