A lot of people think that a dehumidifier is big industrial machine only used in the workplace or large factories. This couldn’t be further from the truth, as a small dehumidifier market emerges. It is becoming more and more common to find a dehumidifier in smaller areas in the common household.
In this Duronic DH05 Mini Compact 500ml 22.5 Air Dehumidifier review, we describe one of these dehumidifiers.
This dehumidifier is built for smaller areas that are plagued with mould, mildew, extra moisture and humidity. This little unit will extract up to 250ml of water per day, effectively removing any excess moisture from the air. The water level is visible, so you can clearly see when the tank needs to be emptied.
This tank is suitable for small rooms and spaces – up to size 15m squared. It comes equipped with a 500ml water tank and a 250ml daily capacity. Although you can monitor the water level, it automatically switches off when the tank is full. It has a one speed setting. The unit includes an adaptor and washable filter and measures 15.4 x 13 x 22cm.
One of the nice elements of the dehumidifier is its aesthetic – a sleek jet black look literally makes it stand out from the crowd. This can be a breath of fresh air if you are tired of most industrial appliances covered in cream plastic. Another nice feature is the low power consumption – it consumes power at a rate of 22.5 W.
It is quick and efficient, removing dampness and humidity from the air, and can be used in smaller spaces like wardrobes or cupboards. It can be used effectively in the kitchen, bedroom, garage, stock room, caravan or utility room or any room that is affected by excessive dampness.
The unit comes with an adapter and an easy to use instruction manual. Its voltage is DC9V. It has quiet power technology, and it is easy to forget the gentle fan in the background after it has been running. It is also very reasonably priced.
There is one caveat: because the dehumidifier is so compact and lightweight, it is fragile, to the point that the drip tray feels like you may break it when you remove it, or reinsert after emptying. This is understandable though, as it is so small, and for the price it is still a smart buy.
