Default Solar powered charger

My wife's friend has asked me if I can find a solar powered charger, which
she can plug her electric hair straighteners in to when she goes camping.

I have no idea if anything like this even exists, which is why I am asking
on here, to see if anyone knows of anything like this.

I have found a solar powered battery charger, but her straighteners are
electric, so it is something that is able to supply power to an electrical
product.

I know it seems a silly question, but I said I would ask for her and find
out if it exists.

You could buy an Inverter and run them from your car cigarette lighter
socket - assuming they don't draw too much power. (check the label on the
straighteners)

Something like :

Depends on the model.

Some need 1kW at 240v - which is entirely impractical to power from a
solar powered battery charger.

Some, such as the Morphy Richards Touch Up Mobile Straightener, are
battery powered and could be recharged from a solar panel.

Get either a petrol generator or tell her about gas powered hair stylers!

Not much help here but I tried taking my wife camping and she almost went
into shock with no electricity, she left me at the site within 4 hours she
was booked in at the premiere in. And I was worried looking all over for
her!!!

Unless you hold it up a bit nearer to the sun, of course...
