Technical specifications & FAQ
Experimental drying times you can expect for your equipment for different wetsuit thicknesses and weather conditions.
|Wetsuit thickness||Ambient Temp. 85ºF / 29ºC||Ambient Temp. 65ºF / 18ºC||Ambient Temp. 45ºF / 8ºC||Requires inside out|
|3mm||35 minutes||50 minutes||90 minutes||No|
|4 to 5mm||60 minutes||90 minutes||120 minutes||No|
|+6mm / other equipment||90+ minutes||120 minutes||120+ minutes||Yes|
Drying times experienced by users may vary due to a wide variety of factors, including:
- Environment relative humidity (%)
- Effective airflow: a folded suit will prevent the airflow to circulate freely.
- Lack of ventilation: drying in a small closed room, might cause longer times.
- Drain time: if you rinsed your wetsuit, it may need time to drain water before hanging. Check charts below.
- Requires inside out: a thicker wetsuit (+6mm) might require to turn it inside out to achieve a perfectly dry and ready to store feeling. Nonetheless, if you need a quick dry to get back to water in the afternoon, with shorter drying times you will also achieve a decent dry feeling on the inner side.
Drying times included in this table are approximate. Tests were conducted operating under well ventilated area. In case you do not reach a satisfactory result, please contact us for advise.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use Blawesome at home?
Yes! You can plug it in every wall plug. Just be sure you choose your right voltage and plug for your region when you purchase it online.
Does it work with 12v in a car?

How long is the cord?
The length of the cord is 2m.
What is the lifespan of Blawesome?
We offer a warranty demanded by law. However if you take good care of your Blawesome unit (avoid to store it in wet environments and protect from impacts) it should be accompanying you for many years. The lifespan of its components is over 10.000 hours by design, that is a lot of drying time.
Does the air which is blowed in the wetsuit reduce the lifespan of the wetsuit?
Nor the temperature neither the stress will affect the longevity of your wetsuit. Blawesome increases the ambient temperature by 15ºC or 27ºF so in winter days the effective temperature will never get too high. For example if the outside temperature is 10°C (respectively 50° F) Blawesome will warm the air up to 25°C (77° F). On summer days hot days we recommend to use Low Power Mode. Redundantly the embedded Thermostat will control that the temperature does not raise over 32-34 ºC / 90ºF, the natural temperature of the air on a hot summer day.
At what temperature does Blawesome dry my equipment?
Blawesome increases the environment temperature by 27°F or 15°Celsius. For example if the outside temperature is 10°C (respectively 50° F) Blawesome will warm the air up to 25°C (77° F). The thermostat only will stop disconnect the heating element when the airlow temperature reaches 32ºC or 90° F.
Is the temperature adjustable or constant?
The temperature is not constant, but the power is. This means you will get an airflow of 15°C or 27°F warmer than the ambient temperature. Nonetheless, if you are connecting Blawesome to your car or the ambient temperature is warm enough and you don't want to use the resistance at full power, there is a switch to choose whether you want Full power heating (1000W) or Low power heating (50W).
Can I power Blawesome with my country standard plug?
Yes sure, you will receive the correct power plug for your country. Please, be sure to select the correct one for your country during the checkout process.
What does ABS plastic mean?
Blawesome is built with extremely solid materials as ABS. ABS is a kind of plastic resistant to impact and degradation by exposure to environmental conditions such as sunlight and seawater. In addition, not all ABS plastics are the same. Our ABS supplier is one of the top leading chemical companies.
What does CFM and m3/h mean?
CFM means cubic feet per minute and m3/h means cubic meters per hour (or thousands of liters of air per hour). Both units serve to measure the volume of air that Blawesome can push inside your suit.
