Thanks for the discussion.
Interestingly, a hair dryer on medium is often within the capabilities of a 1 kW inverter, so it isn't out of the question. In the stuff that we build, the "medium" vs "high" setting can make the difference between needing a 1x1 and a 2x2, so a couple of grand.

I did a quick search and didn't find a propane hair dryer but it seems like something that would exist.

The output of those D2 heaters will dry some hair. I sat in front of one to diagnose a voltage problem on a van built up in OR. With the output blowing right on you it is - impressively warm!

Usually if you take away the tools that women are used to using to care for their hair, they start chopping it short so take your pick. Notice the hair in this emote:

Out of the box thinking and low cost, for a longer hose just get another one. Providing a paid service on a campground in the boonies could get you your money back.

If you are **not** sensitive to the fumes / mist

Then just don't box them in and no safety issue in the living space.

Which needs controlled ventilating anyway. In the later stages of charging with FLA or when equalizing, you can maybe hear the bubbling, just crack a window or put the vent a bit more open if the smell bothers you.

With AGM even less chance of an issue, only if boxed in.

I read the article and thinking that 2 duracel $140 6v 235ah golf cart bats are better than 1 $300 228ah 12v
Thanks again for article. I had to read it a few times but I'm starting to see the light.
