These have a tendency to just die. Had the more expensive ones from Argos and Amazon and all of them have died. But for a fiver, it's worth a bash.

Try mouthwash?!
Had a couple of these, they do the job in a small room and much cheaper to run than the big compressor type

May have to rethink that. Cost per litre seems high.

Cheap to buy, expensive to run.

Rethink what? He didn't say he was getting a compressor type, just that these are a lot cheaper to run. They are however also a lot less effective.

useful in bathrooms after shower?

Not sure how safe that would be as they need plugging.

But they're not cheaper to run. Which is my point.
Nevermind, hadn't scrolled far enough down. Although I've seen these working and they fill a lot faster than he claims. .

They're peltier dehumidifiers the link holds true.
For each litre extracted it costs times more in electricity.

Also these are 23w not the 60w he uses to calculate the cost.

So it will take even longer to extract a litre, the costs remain similar/same. Uses same principles as portable electric coolboxes, and they are comparatively expensive to run.
Excellent price, is this nationwide?
There’s been lots of feedback on here and other sites regarding these which report that they only really work well in very small rooms. Some have even claimed they do nothing.

I tried one that seems very similar in my small bathroom after water got into the walls, but it could barely collect anything over a day. I tried a unit which was about £35 and 3 times the size, but not a big unit, and it made a dramatic difference, solving our problem within days.

If you have a damp issue, most likely something is wrong and it will require a decent dehumidifier, even just for management.
I’ve had one of these and I’ve also got a 15yr old condensing type one. This one you can leave on all day 12 hrs plus and maybe collect a 1/4 of a mug. The condensing one will collect about 2 to 3 mugs.. great to try for a fiver but ultimately useless imo. Bit like a fisher price version

You're missing the point.
These little Peltier dehumidifiers are perfect for crappy "modern" British homes where the bedrooms will get steamed up in the night, leading to mould. They're low power, fairly quiet, and extremely cheap to buy.

Compressor types are far more effective, and are obviously more efficient per watt...but they also use far more power, have a far higher initial outlay (~£100), and tend to be a lot louder. They're overkill for just dealing with condensation. They're what you buy if you've got a laundry room, or genuine damp problems.

Don't think I'm missing any point, I was replying to someone who said they were cheaper to run.
Essentially they are not, if you need to defeat condensation it will be far cheaper in the long run to use a conventional dehumidifier. Sure initial outlay is lower, but you will have to spend about 3 to 5 times more on electricity to extract the same amount of water.
Ps. Not overkill in my case, plus it's quiet enough to be in the hall outside bedroom. Don't forget these peltier models run constantly, most compressor models will turn off if fitted with a humidistat

But that's focussing on water extraction per watt, which for condensation issues doesn't really matter.
These are cheaper to run simply because they have lower power consumption -- usually anywhere between 30 and 70 watts; a compressor-type will draw between 5 and 10 times that, as well as being far more expensive to buy.
If all you need it for is managing household condensation, these will function perfectly fine.

I personally turn it on at night when going to bed, and switch it off in the morning. I got sick of dealing with damp windowsills and mould. I picked a slightly bigger one than this up from B+M a few months ago for about £10. It collects about 200ml a night, and i've not had any issues since.

Well , you don't have much condensation do you. In my case it's a bigger problem, condsensation forms on more surfaces than just Windows, 1930s house solid walls etc. As for power consumption it's between 150 to 180 watts when running, but it's not on all the time as it has a humidistat. Read the article I linked earlier. If you're happy with your dehumidifier then stick with it. For people with problem properties something else is required, and it would seem I have got myself the most economical solution for my situation!
