Hi Martin, when you click the smiley face they will charge then.
Im not sure exactly what the cost will be but its not much;-)
Please explain will the dryer run when the start button is held in?
I need a clear explanation of exactly what happens when you try to run your drier so I can assist you.
Thank you for your patience.
