Nearly 23,000 Amazon shoppers think this little dehumidifier deserves a five-star rating, and with its compact, lightweight, and portable design, it’s easy to see why. It measures 7 x 6 x 11 inches and weighs only 2.4 pounds, but it still has a generous 16-ounce water reservoir that removes up to 9 ounces of water from the air per day. It is best suited for rooms up to 1,200 cubic feet and only operates efficiently at temperatures above 59°F.
When full, the dehumidifier automatically shuts off and a light comes on to let you know the tank needs to be emptied. You can easily tip over and pour its contents into a sink without making a mess (there’s no drain hose). The dehumidifier is energy efficient with low power consumption, so running it all day and night shouldn’t put a dent in your electric bill. Its thermoelectric cooling technology even allows for quiet operation for those who want to keep it on while they sleep.
A five-star reviewer advises against judging its small size too quickly: “When it arrived and I saw how small it was, I thought, ‘Oh no, that’s never going to work’. But at to our surprise, it’s a wonderful little workhorse! In two or three days it has a full cup and it’s made a noticeable difference in our garage. We love it and you hardly notice it’s running. .. very quiet. Glad we bought it! Very easy to empty.”
