Read the specification of the Kangarillo 2 hand dryer in the easy-to-read Hand Dryer Data sheet format.
The Kangarillo 2 ECO hand dryer from Handy Dryers is a big improvement on the previous model and the new features move it from being just a 'lookalike' for the XLerator hand dryer to a well performing and excellent value dryer in its own right. There are a number of dryers which have a 'switchable' element, but the 'intelligent element' of the Kangarillo 2 hand dryer means that the user always gets a comfortable experience because the element is turned up or down automatically depending on the temperature in the washroom.
Generally speaking with modern high speed hand dryers, the heat from the dryer makes little difference to the drying time, as most of the water is pushed off the hands rather than evaporated, but it does make a big difference to the user experience, so we think this is an excellent feature which we expect to see incorporated in more dryers in the future.
Something to bear in mind if you are using these figures to compare the Kangarillo 2 against another dryer is that the running cost calculations above (and the power consumption) is based on the element being on full all of the time, so in practice, both of these figures will be better than we have shown. All of which makes the Kangarillo 2 hand dryer extraordinary value for money at less than £170 (as of September 2014).
