Handy if you have damp, or if you dry clothes inside.
NB I've tried the £1 versions that you get in Asda and poundland and have to say these are far better, last longer and are more effective

I've had this I bought it for £8 and I agree it's good and especially in this weather. if you got damp the tablet only lasts for a month but otherwise a few months and now I'm this weather most people dry their clothes inside and don't open windows, I only open the bathroom one myself honestly and it helps keeping windows and walls dry...heat added

These are £7.99 in B&M with refills costing £3.99 a pack of 2, whilst the original factory shop are £8 and £5.
Don't forget to factor in the price of the refills (£4 in wilko), and shop around for those as well.
If you have a damp problem, it might pay to buy a couple of moisture meters and see just how well these cheaper dehumidifiers work, as I've found the best thing is to leave some windows open in dry weather and get a good through draught.
If it's freezing outside then you have to decide how important getting rid of moisture is - I've got some stuff stored which will be damaged by excessive moisture, hence my explanation. I can have a reading of 80% humidity and found that the product featured here, as well as similar items, doesn't really do anything, but opening windows brings the reading down to 55% or less, and stops me losing money.
Inside a wardrobe or cupboard these items are great, but if you've got documents or things like postcards to store, try a small plastic storage box (poundland have some black ones) with a £1 moisture absorber (some poundland stores have a pack of 2 for £1) and that does the trick.

These are really good, the one from poundland are rubbish. We have them in our utility room and on the second refill with these ones, the poundland ones have only just started collecting. Our humidity was 76% and now 45% and i don't need my dehumidifier on anymore

No need for this contraption. Just buy a dessicant dehumidifier. Much faster, cheaper and better in the long run than this uni bond contraption.

I did try an Aldi one a while back, noisy and didn't work particularly well.
Might be different if it was a particularly damp house

Had this in bedroom by window, waste of time, bought mini 2 electric dehumidifiers from eBay for £33, work a lot better, no refills, just plug in and let it do the job.

It does not work, do not waste your money.

Do not be fooled by seeing the blue water in the container.

Check back on a wet day, it will come back to 76%.

It simply does not work, not at this extraction rate. the change in humidity in your test most likely due to tested on a different day.

How could one month extract less than 1L water make your humidity drop from 76% to 45%!

In a wet day, reset your hygrometer and retest!

Willi's last wee. I like it.

Just open a window for 5 minutes and the humidity level will halve! It wont affect the temperature for more than a few minutes as most of the heat in your house isnt in the air.

Not really, three big problem
1. Cost, a decent humidifier cost more than £50, good ones are more than £100, then their is cost of running it
2. You need an electric supply, wires and so on, which all take up space, plug points and can be a right mess
3. Noise, this is silent, the elctric versions makes noise plus generally smell after a while too

Each problem has a solution and an electric dehumidifier may be suitable for some people but not all. Hence over a 100 people here voting this as a hot deal

I have one of these and they are great at getting rid of moisture. I would recommend
