Is it possible to make a battery powered comb that is also a flatiron? Answered

For marketing class, we have to design a product and packaging. It has to be something that could be an actual product, although we DO NOT have to create a functioning prototype. I would like to design a comb that, when you turn it on, is also a flatiron and is powered by a rechargeable battery. My teacher doesn't think a battery could heat it hot enough. I want to the comb heat to at least 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Is it possibly for a rechargeable battery to heat a device that high? Thank you!

Connect a battery to a strand of nichrome wire. It will get hot enough.

Regrettably you must transfer that heat to your voluminous flowing hair and that takes a heavy belt of batteries.

Simply look at the power rating in hair management contraptions on the market.

My wife has a simple hair curler that is powered by propane in the handle for camping. Propane far outstrips battery electricity for energy density, especially if your output design is to provide 400`F heat.
