Vida 20L Portable Dehumidifier - £89.98 @ Ebuyer

Posted 29th Oct
Winter brings the dreaded cold and condensation in our UK homes, hence I've been on the look out for a dehumidifier. I think this seems to be a good deal for a dehumidifier this size.

5.5L Water Tank Capacity
Auto Stop When Water Tank Full
Auto Defrost Function and Air Purify Function with Ionizer
Dryclothes Function and Filter-change Function



Here's the full description:

The Vida 20L Dehumidifier is an impressive machine that is quiet, efficient and looks great. And, at an unbeatable price, you really can't go wrong!

Dehumidifiers play an important role in your family's health as well as helping keep your home in good condition. When humidity levels in your home are high, it encourages allergens such as dust mites, mould and mildew to thrive. Small living spaces with limited ventilation, such as bathrooms or kitchens in a small apartment or basement apartments, are common areas where moisture can build up. Of course, the Vida 20L can remove up to 20 Litres of water per day.

Odours which accompany mould and mildew are greatly reduced by dehumidifiers, and they reduce the chances of mould developing in your home. They can also be used for commercial and industrial applications.

While your Vida dehumidifier is working quietly and efficiently in your home, it is also helping to reduce irritation to your skin and your respiratory system, helping with allergies like sneezing and difficulty breathing. Not only does it have health benefits, a less humid environment in your home also means that clothing will dry faster, breads and cereals will remain fresh longer without getting stale, and you won't find signs of rust or corrosion on things like computer equipment, electronics, and tools.

Signs you need a dehumidifier;

Water stains on the walls or ceiling
Mould spores (small black spots) in rooms with poor ventilation
Frequent condensation on the windows in certain areas of your home
Musty smells

Mine is electronic and I've had it 4 years and I paid £58 for it and it's still going strong, a lot of power in it. What mostly goes in dehumidifiers are the sensors which can happen regardless.
This works out cheaper using the eBay code when you include delivery costs. Paid £90.30 delivered from eBay.
I believe delivery is roughly £7 - £8 with Ebuyer.

Have had one of these running all winter in my garage for two years now. have had no issues. water used to run down up and over door and everything rusted and corroded, after one day garage was bone dry.

That's really helpful. Thank you. We have serious condensation on all bedroom windows through most winter....I'm hoping that by placing this in the upper landing, it'll clear most if not all....Do you think it'll work?

Most 20l dehumidifiers are higher consumption than this model some running at 450w +.

I believe it's a refrigerant. For a 20l extraction, it's not that high to be honest. Also bear in mind that once you've brought the humidity levels down to what you find comfortable, you can reduce the speed it runs at, so in reality it might only use a quarter of the advertised power consumption as it won't need to be on constantly at full power.

Based on 13p per kw electricity, even at 360w, it would cost less than 4.7p per hour.

I bought an Inventor EVA Pro II from Amazon for £159 (it has been lower but I decided I couldn't wait any longer) after a lot of research including a temporary £1 Which trial. Supposedly the best buy is the Meaco Low Energy 20L but to me it wasn't £100 better to justify buying that one. Anyway, in answer to your question, a dehumidifier should clear your condensation, there may still be a little bit due to temperature differences inside and out. My dehumidifier brought the humidity levels in my house down from around 70% to around 50% within hours. The quality of the air in my house is so much better now after a few days, I wish I had bought one years ago. If you have damp and condensation, get a dehumidifier, just seriously consider getting one of the slightly more expensive better rated ones if you can afford to.
Thanks, I've just purchased this.

Never had a dehumidifier before so I'm keen to see the benefits.

Any tips for a rookie? (use it 24/7?, use it a lot to begin with then turn it down?, turn it on/off every few days to save power? is it better to place it somewhere in the middle of the house?) I understand it's dependent on circumstance but any advice may be helpful.

If it has a smart feature it should just turn on and off on its own as and when needed, I couldn't see much in the specs for it but one reviewer says you can set the base humidity level on it (I set mine, a different make, to 45%). A central location with plenty of gap around it is preferable but you could put it in the worst affected room to begin with. I am leaving mine on constantly at the moment to get the whole house down to an acceptable level. Supposedly the right humidity level helps your central heating be more efficient so there should be some trade off with running costs.

My suggestion is this..... To start with, you need to leave on preferably 24/7. Once humidity levels are reduced, then it's now and again, which shouldn't cost much. The location of the dehumidifier is dependent on where the issues are. Place it in the worst room, them keep moving it to the next worse. Finally place it in a hallway/middle of house.

Sounds good. I had an excellent Dimplex which I gave to my daughter last week so I may well take the plunge.

That's great to hear. I'm just surprised how the 10l version has hit almost 1500 degrees, yet this 20L version which only £40 more, is only at 350 degrees.

20L version is by far the best option. More powerful and versatile it has a 5.5L tank. The 10L version has a 1.5 L tank so people will be emptying it constantly.

Totally agree buddy. Originally I also was thinking to go for the 10L model, but it would need to run for a lot longer to extract the same amount of moisture as the 20L and actually will cost more to run than it's big brother.
I cant decide this one or 10liter for £62 any suggestion

Mine seems mostly stable although does take a bit to settle down. If you have doors or windows open then air from other rooms can come through and change the reading a little.

Really? I already have internal floor doors open to allow air to circulate. Just find it odd that it's not dropping much and sometimes increases. Oh well...Andy if possible, please provide feedback how you get on. Thanks.
Right so mine arrived today and broke after 8 hours use. It was in the middle of a large room, above 21 degrees. It had brought my humidity down from 70 to around 55 (raised back up to 63 after I brought washing in to dry). Not impressed. Contacted ebayer and waiting for a response. Wondering whether to get a replacement unit, or a full refund to buy another brand.

Mine was used for the first time yesterday. It was left on our landing, overnight to bring the humidity down to 40. It's managed to bring it down from 58 to 47. However our bedroom still shows as 68. There's little, to no condensation on any of the rooms in the morning, so only time will tell if this is due to the weather or the dehumidifier.

I've had mine running, but I've noticed after a while the power light starts flashing... Does anyone know what this means?? There's no info in the manual.
