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.
