The Shinco SPS5-08C is a mid-priced portable air conditioner.

It’s perfect for smaller rooms up to 200 sq. ft. — bedrooms, small living space, and city apartments.

Smaller than most portable units, it’s able to deliver quick, effective cooling within minutes of being turned-on.

There’s not many reviews yet, but the Shinco SPS5 units already have top buyer ratings.

To reduce electricity consumption, it utilizes a self-evaporative system.

Self-evaporative system: uses water from the condensation water bin to cool the coils needed to operate the AC — this significantly decreases the energy required, especially when running max power.

The self-evaporative system is used for easier maintenance since you won’t have to empty the tank as much.

Temp Range: 75°F – 98°F

Older portable air conditioners have a frequently turn-on and shutoff.

Buyers say the Shinco SPS units are very good at maintaining consistent room temperature for long hours.

All models include a built-in dehumidifier.

The Shinco SPS5-08C is able to remove up to 60 pints of moisture per day — similar size dehumidifiers (without AC) can cost $100-200.

Dehumidifier: 60 pints (7.5 gallons)

If you living in a humid area, the dehumidifier is a nice added value.

Shinco Portable Air Conditioner:

The Shinco SPF5 units were released just this year.

Even though it’s a newer unit, buyer reviews have been stellar — one buyer says it’s twice as fast and half as loud.

Looking at comparable ac units on Amazon the SPF5 models have a medium price. There’s some that cost much less, but have fewer features + don’t include a powerful dehumidifier or a self-evaporative system.

Overall the Shinco SPS5-08C appears to be a great option.
