TODAY’S PATENT- PORTABLE HAIR DRYER
The invention portable hair dryer was invented by Louis Perez and Walter Evanyk, patented by the USPTO on 13th of April, 2004, bearing patent number US6718651B2.
The present invention relates in general to a hair dryer/blower and specifically to a portable hair dryer/blower that is so constructed as to enable it to physically stand alone on its own base and that has not only a voltage regulating circuit to control the heat produced by the element but also has a variable air inlet control, a variable air outlet control and a power control circuit that allows the heating element to obtain fill heat and then pulses it to maintain the set heat at a less power consumption of the battery.
It would be desirable to have a hair dryer/blower that is portable and held in one hand to provide the user freedom with the other hand for actions such as simultaneously using additional styling tools thus aiding in the creation of different styling techniques. Further, it would be desirable to construct the hair dryer/blower such that it will stand by itself on its base and is balanced when held thereby offering improvements in ease of operation due to minimizing the effects of the combined weight on the wrist and arm of the user. It would also be desirable in such case to conserve battery power by enabling the heating element to attain full heat and then to pulse the voltage or current applied to it in such a ratio as to simply enable the heat to be maintained depending on blower speed and air input and output.
Thus, the present invention relates to a portable hair dryer/blower assembly that has a number of important features. The first is that it is portable and self-contained and includes an electric heat generating coil and blower assembly.
In addition, the battery assembly, with its weight, serves as a stand for the dryer/blower and provides a means to weight balance the complete assembly when used.
