Portable Electric Clothes Dryer

Postby sparkjoe » Thu Apr 02, 2009 12:06 am

I'm trying to find a portable Electric clothes Dryer like a Jackaroo one I saw last weekend that the people bought from k-mart a couple of years ago.
It looks like a portable clothes line with a zip up bag around it, & an air blower, blowing warm air up through it.
Does anybody know where I can purchase this from.
If I can send an attachment, I have a photo of it, but I'm not sure if I can attach the photo.
Can anyone tell me that..

I have an portable electric tumble washer and dryer in one. It's a Nova (brand), sort of looks like an esky but more square but very light and i've seen plenty of the washers only but not like this which is a tumble dryer as well. The only trouble with it is that it doesn't spin dry them so you have to wringe them out good first before you can use the dryer. But it was a godsend on our travels to dry off stuff that was half dry and to save lots on washing at laundrymats. I'll have to get it out of the shed and maybe sell it.

I do exactly the same thing with my hot water cupboard - doesn't it work a treat?

If it needs 240V then you would need a 240 power outlet, this means a caravan park or similar, most have dryers at the van park, either that or you will need a very big inverter and battery ::()

Can I ask how often, and under what circumstances, anyone would use one of these?? If you're only away for a week say, surely you don't need to be washing and drying clothes??

The only time i would gather would be if your traveling full time like we were. Thats the only reason we got our tumble washer/dryer. Most nat parks and even a lot of the free stops had a power point in the toilets so we just used that for the 240v if it was an unpowered area. Most of the places we stayed were nat parks or free stops so it was a god send (traveling on a shoe string budget lol ). It saved us heeps as there was 6 of us.
I wouldn't use the air o dry as i'd be worried that hairdryer thingy would catch alight being used for an hour or so at a time.

Don't have to have a need for it Amanda in order to think that it is a great idea.

Xmas when it was raining and I was camping for a few weeks it would have been a great option to have. Yes I was on a powered site and No there was no dryer facilities at the campground or even nearby for that matter.

Like AS also said....for anyone travelling it would be a welcome asset.

I wondered if you could run them off solar power?

But I guess if the sun was out you wouldn't need one! :$

Would not think so Mark as it is 240volt and solar is 12volt
