Shinco SPS5-10C Air Conditioner.
The Shinco SPS5-10C is an affordable portable air conditioner for homes or offices.
In terms of ac cooling, the Shinco 10,000 BTU deliver fast and effective cooling for small to medium size rooms.
Room Size: 250 – 300 sq. ft.
For bedrooms, the Shinco SPS5-10C is the perfect solution in terms of price and performance.
Buyers confirm that it runs very quietly when placed on lower ac power — according to the description it stays below 52 decibels.
For larger rooms up to 650 sq. ft. I suggest the Shinco SPS5-14H. It’s the same model, but with a bigger ac motor and includes a heating function.
Shinco offers four SPS5 models:
- SPS5-08C: 8,000 BTU (150 ~ 200 sq. ft.)
- SPS5-10C: 10,000 BTU (200 ~ 300 sq. ft.)
- SPS5-12C: 12,000 BTU (300 ~ 400 sq. ft.)
- SPS5-14H: 14,000 BTU (500 ~ 650 sq. ft.)
** FYI: The Shinco SPS5-14H is currently the only one that includes a heater — the other three are strictly Shinco portable air conditioner units.
Shinco Portable Air Conditioners:
The Shinco brand produces 3 types of ACs — the SPS5 models being the newest. They were released in early 2019.
Looking at reviews, the most popular appears to be the SPS5-14H.
However, the SPS5-10C is a little more affordable and recently received its first online reviews in April.

Shinco AC Overview:
As a medium-size portable air conditioner, the Shinco SPS5-10C is ideal for bedrooms or apartments.
Many buyers purchased for their city apartment or dorm room.
Even as a mid-sized air conditioner, the Shinco 10k BTU unit offers quick cooling and is very energy efficient — compared to similar units, it operates 20-30% more efficiently thanks to the self-evaporative system.
Self-evaporative system: used to cool the condenser coils with water from the dehumidifier.
This drastically decreases the energy needed to operate, and reduces water in the tank (meaning you won’t have to empty as often).
Shinco AC Functions:
The Shinco SPS5-10C includes a high-end dehumidifier which removes up to 75 pints of air moisture each day (per 24 hours).
Similar size dehumidifiers (without the air conditioner) can cost $200+ which makes the Shinco that much more affordable.
It also includes 3 fan speeds.
All features can be changed on the ac itself or by using the remote control.
By purchasing the Shinco SPS5-10C you receive the following:
- Shinco portable ac (51 pounds)
- Full installation kit
- Vent hose, exhaust hose, framing
- Remote control
Shinco Portable Air Conditioner Review:
The Shinco acs are a little newer, but so far have received positive buyer reviews.
Looking through ac units on Amazon they appear to be among the most affordable — it’s common for newer products to have a lower price to incentivize more reviews.
In any case, the Shinco SPS5-10C appears to be a great option.
Not only is it an affordably price portable ac, but the built-in dehumidifier is a nice added benefit.
Dehumidifier: 75 pints = 9.375 gallons
For anyone living in a very humid region or city apartment, I think one of the Shinco SPS5 air conditioners should be considered.
