  1. Dave Rongey says:

    Hi Adrian,
    A hair dryer with a built in GFCI should not cause nuisance tripping when it is plugged into a GFCI protected circuit.
    Thanks for your great question.

  2. Adrian Flynn says:

    Hi Dave,
    In most bathrooms you have “GFCI” protected circuits.
    What will happen if you plug in a “Hair Dryer” with a GFCI protected “PLUG” on it?
    Will you be protected or will there be no protection or trouble trips between the “GFCI” outlet and “GFCI” plug?
