  • Publication number: 20220053905
    Abstract: A hair dryer includes a housing having a main air inlet, a main air outlet and a main interior volume between the main air inlet and the main air outlet. The housing has an auxiliary air inlet, an auxiliary air outlet, and an auxiliary interior volume between the auxiliary air inlet and the auxiliary air outlet. The auxiliary air inlet, the auxiliary air outlet and the auxiliary interior volume each are outside of the main interior volume so that the auxiliary air inlet and the auxiliary air outlet are not in communication with the main air inlet and the main air outlet. A first pair of ion emitters are in the main interior volume. A second pair of ion emitters are in the auxiliary interior volume. A fan is upstream of the first pair of ion emitters in the main interior volume, and selectively generates a main airflow through the housing from the main air inlet to the main air outlet. A heater is in the main interior downstream of the fan and upstream of the main air outlet relative to the main airflow.
