I don't know if they're still available, but years ago there were butane-powered hair dryers. If you really need one for off-grid camping, you may wish to Google....

Re: 12 Volt Hairdryer

After reading a similar thread, I gave up on the idea of a 12 volt hair dryer.

But I asked for, and did get this, for Christmas.

I really like it. Gets that stubborn dirt that sits between the screen door track and the entry door.

Ours is B&D too, but not in those funky colours.

Re: 12 Volt Hairdryer

Yes, the vacuum is very handy when my wife's husband tracks things in. How about the rechargeable unit? Recharges when home and plugged in, or on the grid at a campground, but cordless/battery powered when dry/off grid. Works for us. Just have to use it so often. Keeping it plugged in all the time, and never using it ruins the battery : - ( Off grid, forget the hair dryer unless you've got the generator, it takes FOREVER to dry with a 12V job.

I'd be keeping that messy fellow out of your trailer, if I was you, Dan.

I compared the cordless to the 12V one I bought when we were looking. The one I bought had a fair bit more suction, but at the expense of being cordless, as it must be plugged in to a 12V outlet to work.
