What experts liked
The Eva-Dry E-333 has a different design as there is no water tank. It is just a small plastic frame with micro absorbing silica desiccants inside to remove moisture from the air. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about spilling water or renewing anything.
- Tech Walls
Eva-Dry does a good job of pointing consumers in the right direction as far as what the E-333 is capable of. The manufacturer recommends this device for small spaces such as closets, pantries, kitchen cabinets, and small bathrooms – all spaces in which the E-333 can certainly work well to reduce dampness
- Dehumidifier Buyer's Guide
What experts didn't like
We strongly disagree with Eva-Dry, however, on the size of the spaces that these devices should be used for. We would not recommend either the E-333 or the E-500 for any space larger than about 50 square feet.

From The Manufacturer

This mini dehumidifier has been design to adsorb moisture from small enclosed areas (maximum area: 10'x 10'). It will help protect clothes and valuables from the damaging effects of mold/mildew and moisture rot. It is 100% renewable and needs no power to operate. Just hang the eva-dry unit in a closet, or you can place it in other small enclosed spaces, and it will start to adsorb moisture. There are no batteries required or cords to plug in, the unit works without power. There is an indicator window with special "moisture meter crystals" that change from orange (when dry) to green (when wet) to indicate when the unit needs to be "renewed". The unit will adsorb approximately 8 to 10 ounces of moisture (depending on humidity levels this should take between 3 - 8 weeks). Once the moisture has been adsorbed it cannot leak or spill. This unit uses a specialized engineered crystallized silica gel that is odorless, non-toxic and completely safe. When the indicator crystals turn Green it is time to "re-new" the unit. Simply remove the unit from where it is adsorbing moisture and plug it into a power outlet.

An Overview On Small Dehumidifiers

Dehumidifiers offer several benefits including creating a healthy atmosphere for you to breathe in and reducing the level of moisture in a room to prevent mold and mildew growth. If you don’t need to reduce the moisture in your entire home, you have the option of purchasing a small dehumidifier for certain areas of your home that excess moisture, such as a bathroom, basement or closet.

Determine which type of small dehumidifier would work best in your home. The most common model remains plugged into an electrical outlet and collects water in a water reservoir that you must empty fairly frequently. Another option is a unit like the Eva-Dry Renewable Mini Dehumidifier, 6-Ounce, which traps moisture in silica gel beads. It’s great for homes with kids and pets, as it is non-toxic, doesn’t need to be plugged in to operate and doesn’t have a water tank that can spill.

Of course, if you have toddlers or babies in the home, you also need a small dehumidifier that runs quietly. That’s exactly what you’ll get with the Pro Breeze Mini Dehumidifier with Auto Shut Off, 16-Ounce, which utilizes thermoelectric cooling technology to get the job done without a noisy compressor.

Next, make sure the machine is easy to use. The hOmeLabs Small Dehumidifier with Auto Shut-Off, 16-Ounce, for example, has a simple power button and an automatic shut-off that kicks in when the water tank is full.

Don’t forget to check that the small dehumidifier is able to cover the space you intend on using it in. If the space is too big, the unit won’t be able to keep up. The SEAVON Electric Mini Dehumidifier, 16-Ounce covers 156 square feet, which is slightly more than other comparable models on the market.

DYWM Fun Fact

Did you know that common allergens, like dust mites, mold and mildew need moisture and humidity to grow? That’s why individuals who live in more humid climates tend to have more allergies than people who live in areas with cooler temperatures and drier air.

To combat this problem, American inventor William Haviland Carrier created the first dehumidifier. You may already know Carrier as the “father of air conditioning,” but he actually came up with the dehumidifier first. Carrier was a brilliant man with a mind for engineering, who held as many as 80 patents for his inventions over the course of his lifetime.

The Small Dehumidifier Buying Guide

  • Do not place a small dehumidifier in a room that is larger than the recommended square feet on the product label. It will not be able to keep up.
  • Some small dehumidifier models have water tanks that can spill or leak when overfilled.
  • It is important to note that small dehumidifiers are not able to can’t keep up in conditions where moisture levels continue to increase.
  • Small dehumidifiers work best in areas that have a temperature reading of 59 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit. If temperatures are below 41 degrees Fahrenheit, they will not work at all.
  • Always unplug your small dehumidifier before you clean it. You’ll want to wipe down the outside of the unit, wash the water reservoir with a little dish soap and warm water and rinse out the air filter. Wait for the air filter to dry before reinstalling it.
  • There isn’t a huge difference in price among small dehumidifiers, although the Eva-Dry Renewable Mini Dehumidifier, 6-Ounce costs less than the hOmeLabs Small Dehumidifier with Auto Shut-Off, 16-Ounce, SEAVON Electric Mini Dehumidifier, 16-Ounce and the Pro Breeze Mini Dehumidifier with Auto Shut Off, 16-Ounce due to its small size and ability to run without batteries or electricity.
