Who can forget the "damp in, dry out" slogan. Eva-dry Edv-2200 is one of the first few original mini dehumidifiers that many brand would imitate. The mini dehumidifier comes with a good track record on the reliability in handling moisture. Given this is the larger version with slightly better output and larger water tank, is it worth going for this Eva-dry over the other entry model? What other feature would you get for double the price? Continue reading our review to learn more.

For a small dehumidifier, Eva-dry Edv-2200 Mini dehumidifier is slightly bulky at 6.4 lb weight and 8.5 x 14 x 6.8 in size. Not a deal-breaker as it still can fit on tight spaces with ease. So far we try placing Edv-2200 in a washroom, wardrobe, bedside table and it works just fine. Circling Eva-dry iconic design, you have the air inlet at the front and outlet at back. The on/ off button is at the usual top spot with 2 indicator lights beside it. Moving down, you have a transparent water tank that can hold 1-3 days of water with auto shut-off feature. Water displacement hole and a hydraulic cut-off are also standard here. The dehumidifier will turn off by itself once it detects the water tank is full. Overall there is no “premiumness” touches on the dehumidifier but the build quality is definitely there.
Pints and speed
This is where you pay the extra dollar for. Eva-dry Edv-2200 Mini can cover up to 2200 cubic feet of dehumidification. The higher capacity can take in 20.5 ounce of moisture per day. Naturally, the water tank is larger too at 68 ounce volume. In real life usage, it should hold 1-3 days of water before require emptying. Eva-dry Edv-2200 is ideal for bathroom, garage, small basement, and caravan. You can use it in a boat, work desk, or campsite as well.
What’s inside count
Let's talk about how thermoelectric AKA Peltier technology works. Peltier effect converts temperature differential into electrical power and creating a heat flux. The brushless motor fan will first pull in damp air into the dehumidifier. Passing through the Peltier heat cold sinks module, air will be heated, condense, and release by out as dry air. the extracted water vapor will then drip down into the water tank for collection.
Keep it down
Although double the power output, Eva-dry Edv-2200 operates silently in the background. The noise output is indistinguishable compare with other mini dehumidifiers. Power consumption is on the high side for its segment but is not at an alarming level. If you easily leave it running all day in the bathroom or desk without being disturbed by its presence.
At what cost
Being a mid-size, Eva-Dry Edv-2200 electric dehumidifier costs twice as than most entry-level models. Despite being bump up in dehumidifying performance with a larger water tank, feature-wise remains the same. Is it worth paying the extra dollar for it? Personally, it is worth the extra moisture capturing juice but at the end of it all, the decision still falls back to you.
There are two places we recommend getting Eva-dry Edv-2200 Mini Dehumidifier. The first priority is definitely Amazon as it has a great discount, tons of stocks, and free shipping. Eva-dry official website is also a good option with extended 5 years warranty, free shipping on orders over $100, and site-wide discount up to 25%. Last pick would be any giant retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, or Costco. Their pricing might not be the cheapest, but you can physically examine the product.
Pro Breeze Electric Mini
If you want to downgrade to a basic model and don't mind losing out on a bit of moisture draining performance, go with this.
Ivation IVADM35 Mini
On the flip side, if you don't mind paying the extra dollar for an even higher performance dehumidifier, Ivation IVADM35 would be a good call.
