Why did you choose this product?
If you have a small secured room with safes/lockers for your arms, you know the problems that high humidity can cause. This is the perfect solution and it sure beats plugging in desiccant dryers every week to rejuvenate them! A light bulb probably uses more electricity than the Mini Dehumidifier does, and my room and contents are staying dry. A very worthwhile investment at a minor cost for those valuable items....

This thing looks good but doesn't seem to pull any moisture out of the air.Read More
Ran for 4 days and no water in the reservoir. Promptly returnedRead More
I'm using inside a closet that's 2ft x 5ft, it does work but wish I had bought one that sucked more out of the air faster.Read More
No idea how this machine could muster several great ratings, as it is a totally useless device. I put it in a single small, very moist and mildew-y room and it collected very little water. The mildew has since taken over the house and is holding my cat for ransom. The dehumidifier just sat there, whirring, mocking me and my family as the mildew taunted us: "I'M NEVER GOING TO LEAVE"Read More

Lasted 5 years in my boat. Kept it nice and dry and controlled mildew. Filled with water every 2 weeks and a little less if it was rainy. Quiet and dependable. The fan in the unit eventually failed. It started to whine a little a couple months before it stopped working. Am ordering a new one right now to replace it.Read More
This little dehumidifier is ideal for one room (no bigger than 8 x 10). I use it in my office at work to remove that cloying summer morning moisture after the air conditioner has been off all weekend. While it doesn't suck up the humidity fast, it is effective over the long-run. It runs very quiet but only has one speed. It's super lightweight and easy to put just about anywhere. The water tray is easy to empty and isn't open like some of the trays, so you don't have to worry about sloshing water as you carry it to the sink. It's very attractive and is stable sitting on the rug.Read More
I am in a small ranch home in Ohio and need a dehumidifier for the basement laundry room and basement small family room . The moisture problem occurs down there in the months the furnace is not on. I have arthritis very bad and wanted a unit that I could carry easily as the larger ones I would have to ask someone else to lift. So I bought 2 of these, one for each of the 2 small basement rooms. They are working well and filled up with water and turned themselves off when full! They are really easy to carry and move around. I am very happy with them!Read More
the product is good but your description fails.it does not have a drain that works without the resevoir.Read More
I have allergies and asthma that are bordering on debilitating. In the humid Houston summertime, A/C condensation and humidity from outdoors are a breeding ground for irritants and allergens to build up, especially in my tiny, inadequately ventilated bathroom. The first time I used this little device and checked it a few days later, I was amazed at the amount of water it had drawn from the air. It gets the job done in a small space, & I'm satisfied with it.Read More
