Battery-Powered Blow Dryer for Camping Recommendations

May 30, 2024 7:49 pm

I use a blow dryer after showering to help dry off my skin and pouch and find this very helpful. I am going camping soon and wondered if anyone knows where I could find a cheap battery-powered hair dryer. All I can find online are $60+.

I use a little shower curtain to keep my bag dry. It will keep the direct spray off. I then change my bag or just pat it off with a towel.

How about $17? Try searching for "wireless" instead of "cordless" and you'll have a few choices. I doubt you'll find

a quality dryer for less than $60, but it might last for the camping trip. And at that price, you can buy two... just in case.

Check on eBay for used, less expensive products. They seem to range from $20 to about $60. Here's one:

I bought a small battery-operated fan from Amazon, and it works great!

I use the hard plastic cover on my wafer package and fan my "little buddy" dry. Takes a minute. Fan underneath and blow down on top.

Shower cap? It leaks too much. I use a 4 mil piece of plastic and silicone tape from Medvac/Grainger. The tape lasts through 3-4 showers.
