Tell us about this hair dryer! I know some of you have one.
I'm just hanging out, really.

A standard US 120v circuit is 15amps. 15amps x 120volts = 1800 watts.
Yes there are 20amp circuits but they're not anywhere that someone would be drying their hair. Besides, they use a different plug.
Regardless - the most powerful this thing can be is 1500 watts. That's an Underwriters Laboratories regulation.
Personal info is personal.
