    Just a question I have not seen addressed. Does the Hellcat have a 120v outlet or do i need to getan inverter. I am thinking of getting an electric blower or battery operated to blow the water off the car. Anyone have any experience with a Black and Decker 20V blower? 120 MPH

    I'm pretty sure it is like any other model with a 12v cigarette outlet and will need a transformer converter to 120v.

    I've never used the blower but man that's a great idea instead of wiping it down to dry part

    My daughter has a Jeep Liberty, my son with a Patriot, and my Escape all have 120volt outlets from the factory

    I think with a good wax, most of the water will blow off. But, no car, no wax, no blow

    Why not invest in a good, gasoline operated, backpack blower such as an Echo or Stihl? You'll get so much more use of the tool for other things besides blowing off your car which will make the purchase "justifiable"!

    Hey bfusion.....My kitty was build 10:27pm yesterday. Now the topic...I use a MetroVac, VacnBlo. Does a real great job but pricey. Plug it into garage.

    Sorry no 120 volt outlet in the car , actually not on any of the cars we build in the plant have them . You would think this would be something a 4 Dr sedan like the Charger or 300 would have.

    The biggest and in my opinion, most important difference between an electric and gas powered leaf blower is there is zero chance of any oil residue coming out of the electric blower and ending up on the paint. I've seen it happen and the most anal detailers will probably use an electric leaf blower. It's what I have. :)

    I'm no electrician but all the 110 outlets I've had in several vehicles couldn't handle the load of charging much more than a lap top. I think a blower would draw too many amps.

    I agree, that is why I thought battery power or if the car was equipped with a built in inverter with a 120v outlet. I could keep an electric one in the trunk(hopefully the monkey wouldn't play with it)
    I actually am a master electrician and you are right A 1000 watt inverter will easily handle most cordless tool chargers. An electric leaf blower may be an issue depending on the motor size
    . I don't need as much power as a gas blower either.
