Introduction: If you are a duck hunter or an outdoorsman chances are you have used or have found yourself in need of some type of boot dryer. Peet started making footwear dryers in 1968 and they have led the market in quality and design. They offer dryers of all shapes and sizes to fit every possible need. We have used Peet Dryers in the past but never one so small and compact. This is what makes the Peet Power cell so attractive to the duck hunter that often finds themselves on the road or in a hotel.

First Impressions: The first thing you will notice about the Power Cell is how small it is. The main cord runs from the wall to a Y split where it has a red indicator light. From there the cord is split and runs to two separate dryers. The total length is approximately 8ft long. This is a very simple design with no switches of any kind. Just plug it in and start drying.

Field Test: To test this dryer out we completely soaked the inside of our Mack’s waders with a hose. Then, we dumped the water out and rolled the waders down and inserted one dryer in each boot. The waders had to be rolled down a good bit so that the dryers could reach the bottom of the boot. From where the wire splits to the dryer is about 2 feet. After about 30 seconds of being plugged in you could feel some heat coming out of the dryers.

It took the power cell just under 24 hours to completely dry the waders out. Keep in mind that is from completely drenched to totally dry. Drying these waders in this amount of time shows me that the Power Cell is more than capable of tackling your everyday build up of condensation. So not only is this dryer small and portable, it’s also effective.

Conclusion: This product has proven itself in this test against waders. So, there is no doubt it would work just as well if not better in a regular pair of boots. Without a doubt the most attractive thing about this dryer is its size and ability to travel with or store it without it taking up a ton of room. Peet Dryers offer a dryer made specifically for waders and it gets the job done with no questions asked. I think we can all agree it gets to be a pain hauling those PVC extensions all over the place. At $29.95 the Power Cell is a steal, and the feeling of putting on a dry pair of waders in the morning rather than a wet pair is priceless.
