Hair Dryer

Yup. That's my topic: hair dryer.

I need one that will work in my 2017 Sahara! Of course, I realize that I can simply remove the top. But...It's March in New England.

The AC plug won't power the tiny one I have. Any ideas?

Mount a 12 to 120 volt inverter under hood. Can buy one to your desired wattage and then just have a 120 volt receptical (house plug) mounted to your desired location. OR buy a booster pack with the 120 v application built in then it will be portable.

I have a 140w = 120v converter and it is not powerful enough for a hairdryer. (Tried to heat shrink colored wrap) Test it out before mounting it. You can buy these at any walmart or automotive store.

Hair dryers are 1500W minimum, most are more. 2000W inverters are $200 and up. And you are pulling around 125 amps.

It can be done, but it not something you just stick in the cigarette lighter.

A 2000 watt hair dryer would pull 16 amps at 120v ac.
Go to a truck stop an find a 12 volt dryer, won't have a ton of grunt, but will do the job.

JillEB is a girl. Enough said.


My wife won't go camping unless I bring along a portable shower.

Girls are from Venus. Boys are from Mars. What else do you need to know.

Good Luck, L.M.

Simply take the doors and your top off...perfectly natural organic, non-GMO hair dryer! I'm not sure why people make things so difficult. .

I mentioned this thread to my wife. She said "Just get a 12V. hair dryer".
"What do you think I use when we go camping?".

OH! DUH? Folks from Mars don't think like that. I guess I never noticed.

She said just search "12V. hair dryer" on Amazon. Should find all kinds of things, even 12V. electric blankets.

Whooda Thunk??

Good Luck, L.M.

Or you could just put the heat on high and stick you head over the defrost vent.

I've used a long extension cord, and just left it running on the floor when the roof leaks to dry the carpet

The ones on Amazon don't have very good reviews. This one on eBay has better reviews...
http://www.ebay.com/p/12v-Hair-Dryer...amp/1794197533


Google 12v hair dryers... I'm sure places like Camping World will have them to

The 125A was DC for the inverter.

I jeep but I also ride. Doesn't anybody but me think that it's a bad idea to be driving and blowdrying your hair at the same time?

Some woman do their entire makeup, not to mention everyone texting - just another activity to help with the boredom of everyday driving.

That would mean you need a 15000 watt inverter to get 125 amps. And a huge alternator, and abt 10 batts.

No, 2000 dryer pulls 16A at 120VAV, if plugged into an inverter, that pulls 165A at 12VDC.

You don't need a hair dryer Jill, you need a man that loves the wind blown look! :-)
Best wishes on the search (eitherway)!
