Cordless blowers

Just having one of those random thoughts on what else detailing I can waste my money on and it's switched to 18v cordless garden / leaf blowers for drying the cars. Has anybody used one over a mains powered unit?

I already have a collection of tools and batteries from the Ryobi one+ 18v system and found they have a blower in the range.

I've had a cordless 18v Black & Decker leaf blower for about 4 yrs now.
Tried drying a car with it but it took too long and still left tiny droplets which needed a final going over with a towel.

Perfect for around mirrors and shut lines to stop dribbles while waxing later.

My main use is to blow water away from rims and tyres after washing before applying Optiseal or Gtechniq C2V3 which don't mind a little dampness.
