Frequently Asked Questions
Does it come with a battery?
This unit is capable of running off any of your existing batteries with a voltage that does not exceed 20 volts. We use a 12V APO (Cigarette Lighter) interface but could easily use an adapter to utilize a multitude of battery connections. There are many excellent portable battery options like Jackery that have the same interface.

What is the difference between the fan only and heater settings?
What is the draw at 12v for the Heated Fan operation and Fan Only operation?
Heated Fan Operation: The current varies in the first minute of operation due to the specific heater in the device. It is fused with 15A, but the maximum amp draw is 12.5A at peak for seconds but runs at about 9.5A in normal operation after the first minute.
Note: if your power device, such as a power bank or converter, puts out less than max amp draws, the unit will still get to the proper heat temperature but will take longer to get to that final temperature with a restricted amp draw.
For example: instead of less than 1 minute, it can take roughly 5 minutes. The heater is designed for an optimum heating profile but is not needed if you have extra time to dry at a lower amp draw. Users should not go less than the restriction of 10A as the heater will work but will not reach the maximum designed temperature.
For Fan Only Operation: This mode only uses .16A, making this mode much more energy efficient. It still dries if above freezing, but not as quickly as the heat mode.
