Best Boot Dryer for the $$?

Did a quick search on Boot Dryers as I am in the market for one and couldn't find anything recent so.....

I wanna hear your personal experiences on boot dryers you have used. Please include price you paid and pros/cons.

Gracias

Family bought this for me last Christmas. I mostly use it in the spring but its kinda cool. Totally silent, works on thermal convection.



Pros:

Works great, use it on my spring gloves as well
Drip tray if you're drying something that's still soaking wet

Not much of a con but tight fit to get boots on, but as long as you cover the top it will dry them out.

68-0101-W Hy'n Dry Boot Dryer by Weston Products Llc 68-0101-W 834742004961

Not saying that's the best price but they bought mine locally at Harbor Freight, I've seen deals on it there for $25.00

diy, about $15 in recycled used parts, a few minutes to put togather.
pros cheap, dries 12 items at once or just 1, quiet, no heat just air flow.
Cons...my wife won't let me dry stuff in the living room.

Deviant if I could find that for $25 thats not a bad deal assuming it works good. I think the one my buddy has was like $40 and it doesn't stand by itself at all.


And Wrath I like your DIY! Although I don't have the tools or supplies to build such a contraption....

Serrius (Serius?) Hot Ratz. AC adaptor as well as an Auto plug. About $20. I got mine @ REI. Portable. Quite. Gets mildly warm but never Hot. Small enough to fit in gloves too. My boot liners are bone dry after a few hours.

Check google shopping, there's some other brands that do the same thing for about 20.00. I've been very happy with mine, just got to remember to unplug it since you cant tell when it's on.

For those with a little more money...

Boot Dryer, Clothes Dryers, Industrial Portable - Williams Direct Dryers

I grew up next door to the guy who designed and built all these things. It went from a home business in his shop to him supplying all kinds of high profile clients! Pretty cool... gonna see if he's got any spares sitting around for my gear. haha.
