Usability

A typical mini dehumidifier design like every other model in the market. Gurin DHMD-210 stands at 6 x 8.5 x 5 inches in size and 2.6 pounds in weight. The compact and lightweight design allows easy carry around the house with just one hand. Find a spot and place it in the wardrobe, closet, or any place with a high relative humidity level above 50%. At the front, you have the standard on/ off button with 2 indicators at the side. The ON indicator will lit when you turn on the dehumidifier and the full indicator will lit when the water tank is full. The Air inlet is located at the front while the outlet is at the usual top spot.

Moving to the daily operation, the 16 oz spill-free water tank comes with a water displacement hole and a hydraulic cut-off. The semi-transparent water tank can be easily removed thanks to the front grabbing handle. You can effortlessly slide back in the bucket once you empty the water. 4 rubber feets at the bottom will help stabilize the dehumidifier and prevent tipping over. Overall build quality is there for a mini dehumidifier further complemented by a standard 1-year warranty on parts and labor.

Dehumidification Technology

Gurin DHMD-210 has a +- 8 oz moisture capturing per day at 86° Fahrenheit and 80% relative humidity. Slightly weaker than most entry-level models but you can hardly tell the differences. The dehumidification output is good enough to cover 1,100 cubic feet of room size with a mustiness smell. Suitable for caravan, camp, bathroom, work desk, bedroom, kitchen, garage, and damp basement. The water tank will hold up to 16 oz of water that you only need to empty the collected water every 1-2 days. We recommend emptying daily though to prevent mold growth and the automatic shut down function from kicking in.

Let dive deep into how Gurin DHMD-210 Thermo Electric Mini Dehumidifier works. Powered by an advanced Peltier Technology that uses no compressor, The fan will quietly pull moisture air into the dehumidifier. Next, the two Peltier heat sinks module will heat up the air while the cool sinks cool it down. Moisture will then be extracted from the air while dry cool mist will be exhausted out. The cycle will continue as long as the temperature is not below freezing level and there is high humidity in the air.

Gurin DHMD-210 Thermo Electric DC Brushless motor silently pulls moisture in so naturally the entire operation is whisper quiet. Suitable for bedside use or on your desk without causing any distraction. With a 9V DC 2.5 Amp power adapter, it is a very energy-efficient unit as with most small dehumidifiers in this category. You can run it the whole day, every day and your electricity bill will not even feel a pinch.

Price Guide

At less than 40 dollars, Gurin DHMD-210 is a dirt-cheap mini dehumidifier. It is even cheaper than a premium earphone or a fancy meal for 2. However, it is a very basic unit without any filtration or add-on features. It has limited moisture removal capacity in protecting your home from moisture damage, rust, and pest. Expect nothing new from what you will normally get in other small dehumidifiers.
Amazon is the best place to buy Gurin Thermo Electric Mini Dehumidifier as pointed on Gurin's official website. Enjoy great discounts, addon deals, free shipping with the usual Amazon perks like easy purchase and 30 days return policy. We did not try our luck with the typical retailers like Walmart, Costco but they might carry some stock. However, given the convenience of online purchase where is even promoted on their website, we didn't even bother to look elsewhere.

About the same price but comes with a tad higher moisture output at 9 ounces. The water tank is also slightly larger at 18 ounces VS 16 oz.

SEAVON MD-819

Again slightly better moisture output at 9 oz but the difference is insignificant. Everything else is pretty much the same.
