I had high hopes for this little guy as I pulled him out of the box today, but after only an hour or so of use, the fan stopped working (this was accompanied by a little *pop!*). As I unplugged it, it also became apparent to me that the converter box had become extremely hot in that short amount of time. It's an attractive little unit, but unfortunately seems rather prone to failure and possibly unsafe. If I were you, I would pass on this one.

This mini dehumidifier is truly mini. It works well, but only in confined places. Even in a saturated environment it still took days to fill up the small container. I think it may be because of the very low air movement. I placed it in a very damp, and very small bathroom. It took forever to remove a full containers worth. I think it might work well in a closet. But even then if the humidity rises quickly it just won't keep up.

I've been using this dehumidifier for 7 days now. It is very hot and humid outside at the moment. The unit is on a timer @ 6hrs a day and it is terrific. My Closet humidity is between 35% and 45% when the unit has been on @ 2-3 hrs and still below 60% the next day.
It is rather quiet but not silent. The size is great and I have not needed to empty the water yet. I am very happy with the Sunpentown 86 Watt Mini.

Purchased on April 25. Done by June 14. I missed the return window by 9 days. It worked as advertised for less than two months. When I opened the water compartment to empty it I found a loose black capacitor on the top tray. The green light was off and the unit no longer functioned. I will not be purchasing any Sunpentown (SPT) product again. This was an incredibly poor quality dehumidifier.

One week in a very small closet with 70% humidity (I have gauage) and this thing didn't bring the level of moisture in the air down at all. Be aware that you cannot return this product if it is opened at most sellers, and even if it isn't opened, some retailers require a return within 5 days. In addition, it heated up the room, which means it is running and using much electricity.

I bought this to dehumidify an enclosed work trailer. The water tray was too small to go 12 hours without emptying. I attached the included plastic hose, but within a few minutes to slipped off and water went all over the floor. I tried using a worm gear clamp, but that slipped off as well. The next step would have been glue, and that would have made the item un-returnable

The unit seems to be able to dehumidify as expected, but when the overflow hose is connected it pops off and water goes on the floor. It needs a lip on the fitting or a tiny hose clamp. I am now testing a zip tie to secure the hose .... we'll see .... but can't leave it unattended. Must manually empty the reservoir .... which incidentally is very difficult to remove.

Decent small space dehumidifier. Works best for smaller spaces where high humidity is an issues, such as small bathrooms. Runs quietly, but its effect is limited for medium or larger rooms. Useful life is about one year of continuous operation. Unit is inexpensive enough to replace, but a more robust unit should be considered for larger spaces or more frequent use.

I bought this dehumidifier for my 12 ft camper. It works perfect, even in the hot humid Florida summers. I put the dehumidifier in the sink of the camper and it just drains right in the sink. It drains approx. 2-3 liters a week, more if it is very humid. The transformer on the power cord gets very warm, but I just put it on a kitchen hot pad with no worries.

i live in a very damp basement apartment so i bought this dehumidifier to help keep the apartment cool. It worked for about a 4 months and then the motor pooped out on me. can't get it to turn back on anymore. if you want a good dehumidifier, do yourself a favor and invest in something better than this one. i think it would be worth the extra cost.
