I just bought a dewalt cordless leaf blower. 125mph/450cfm. I used it this past weekend but it seemed like it was taking forever to dry the car. I got frustrated and just went back to my microfiber drying towel. Maybe my technique needs work.
I also use a battery powered leaf blower. I have a ceramic coating.

I wash the car and then use it to blow most of the droplets of the hood and roof and around the mirrors, license plate, doors, ... to avoid droplets coming out after drying. Takes about 5 minutes.

And then I do the rest with a microfiber. Combining both is faster and has less droplets afterwards.

Drying with the leaf blower alone takes way to long.

I already had the leaf blower to blow leaves. Didn't buy it for the car.
