The Ivation ERSDM18 is a mini dehumidifier that is good for use in small spaces that are two hundred square feet or less. This specification is according to the manufacturer but the unit is probably more effective in spaces of 150 square feet as it uses thermo-electric technology as opposed to a traditional compressor. The unit comes with a 22-ounce storage bucket which allows you to run it for a full two days without having to empty the bucket. Additionally, it comes with auto-shut off that will power off the unit once it has reached its storage capacity.
The highlight of this unit is its efficiency. It uses Peltier and ERS technology instead of a compressor for removing moisture from the air. This means it uses much less energy than traditional compressor-based units. This unit, in particular, is much more efficient than many of the other thermo-electric units available on the market. The unit can remove up to 12 ounces per day of moisture and there are no complicated control panels or settings to learn. Operation is simple and easy with an on/off switch and a full tank indicator light.
If you are looking for a portable dehumidifier, this model is an excellent choice. It weighs less than two pounds and stands only six inches tall making it very easy to move to different locations as needed.
Light and Portable
If you are shopping for a small dehumidifier then portability may be a key feature that you are looking for. In the case of the ERSDM18, the unit is ideal when it comes to portability because it weighs only two pounds and stands only six inches tall.
Ease of Use
This unit is very easy to operate as there are no complicated control panels or other settings to learn. It has a simple on/off switch and an indicator light letting you know the tank is full.
One of the best features of this unit is its amazing energy efficient operation. While many thermo-electric units are very efficient, the ERSDM18 also has ERS technology which boosts its efficiency above many other units in its category.
The unit has a storage tank that is large enough to allow for two full days of water collection. However, once the tank is full the automatic shut off feature will power down the unit.
Like many thermo-electric units, the ERSDM18 is limited in how much moisture it can remove from the surrounding environment each day. While this dehumidifier is very efficient if used in smaller spaces that are not too demanding, it will struggle to get the job done if you try to push the limits of its capability.
