I’m an avid year-round hiker, and New England weather often leaves my boots wet at the end of the day from a combination of perspiration and the elements. Drying boots in the winter-time is less of an issue if you have heat source such as a stove, but it’s important to use only low heat. Recently a friend told me he had used an electric boot dryer for many years that worked over night. I looked on Amazon and settled on this one and have been very pleased with the results. The dryer is rated for 36 Watts and circulates warm air by convection, so there no noise and little to wear out – this unit came with a 30-year guarantee. It does not come with an On/Off switch, but a switchable power strip solves that problem.
