Usability

Let’s kick start with Pro Breeze PB-02-US Mini dehumidifier design. The outer exterior has a typical housing that you could not tell it apart from every other model here. Upfront, there is the single front button that serves as an on/ off button with indicators at the side. The Air inlet is located in the middle where damp air is pulled in while the air outlet is at the back. The 18 oz water tank is slightly bigger than average but still holds only about 1-2 days of water. Emptying the water is easy thanks to the front grabbing handle.

Other basic setup includes a water displacement hole. hydraulic cut-off, and 4 rubber feet at the bottom to prevent the dehumidifier from tipping over. At 7 x 11 x 6 in dimension and 2.6 lb in weight, Pro Breeze PB-02-US is a tad larger and taller than an average mini dehumidifier. Still, you will have no problem carrying it from room to room. Perfect for wardrobe, drawer, or top of the cabinet placement.

Dehumidification Technology

A tiny bump on imposture capturing at 9 oz compares with the standard 8 oz of water. Pro Breeze PB-02-US performance is still identical to every other mini dehumidifier here. Through moisture extraction, it can improve air-breathing space, remove musty smell, and halt microorganisms like mold, mildew growth. On paper, it will remove moisture up to 1200 Cubic Feet or 150 square feet. Ideal for small room spaces like the boat, caravan, garage, basement, and bathroom use with high humidity or mold problem. Again, nothing outstanding that is worth a shout.

No surprise here. Pro Breeze PB-02-US uses the same thermoelectric technology as every other mini dehumidifier. Using a Peltier module that consists of 2 heating sinks and a cold sink, damp air is pulled inside the machine and cycles through the 2 elements. The cool sinks will extract the moisture out of the air and the heat sink will convert the water into mists for dispersion. The entire dehumidification process will repeat itself until you turn Pro Breeze PB-02-US off or the water tank is full. Overall Peltier technology is proven, tested but it is definitely not as effective as a refrigeration method.

All thermoelectric dehumidifiers will operate silently in the background. No exception with Pro Breeze PB-02-US Mini Dehumidifier. We can barely hear any noise even when standing next to the dehumidifier. Perfect for night time use where you can place it on top of a shelf or on the bedside table. As with all Peltier technology, it is very energy-efficient than uses only a fraction of power compared with other household appliances. You can run it every day without having to worry about any surge on electrical bills.

Price Guide

In this day and age, what can you get for around 50 dollars? Nothing much which is why Pro Breeze PB-02-US Mini Dehumidifier is a bargain of its own. You'll get every feature there is from thermoelectric, automatic shutoff, and one-button operation. On the flip side, this is also the price you would pay similar to every other brand in the market. There is no short of options for a small dehumidifier.
You can get Pro Breeze Mini Dehumidifier PB-02-US from the official website that offers a good price and free shipping. Is it the cheapest compared with Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Costco? Yes, when it's having a sales or special promotion. Otherwise, Amazon is your best bet as the price is always low with the usual perk like international shipping, bundled deal, and 30 days return policy.

Slightly cheaper but with a tad weaker moisture absorption capacity. Either model will do just fine.

Cheaper by 10 dollars but lose a bit of moisture capacity and a slightly smaller water tank. The performance gap is insignificant to choose one over the other.
