Portable Clothes Dryer 2012/4/2 12:31

When i was in Tokyo two years ago, I saw a Portable Clothes Dryer like the one in this picture - http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/472790627/Portable_Clothes_Dryer_wit...

I'm travelling there in a few weeks and was thinking of buying it back home. Any idea where I can get it? Is it sold in Tokyo Hands? I'll be staying in Shinjuku area.

Those sold in Japan will operate at 100 volts, trying to use it anywhere else in the world where the voltage is 220-240 volts will lead to the device burning out and, because it would contain clothing, there is very high risk of a fire. Even using it in a country like the USA where the voltage is only 120 volts, there is still a risk of burning ot or fire. You would need to use a 1,000 watt step down transformer, they are not cheap and weigh about 9kg/20lb.
