The Prem-i-air RMDH-09 Mini Rechargeable Dehumidifier does not have moving parts and does not even need a fan, let alone a compressor. Water vapour behaves in a way similar to air. If relative humidity is reduced in an area some of the remaining water within the enclosed space is drawn to the less humid region to "equalise the pressure". Thus the desiccant can trap water indefinitely as the water molecules it captures are replaced be those drawn from more humid areas to be trapped in their turn.
The desiccant will continue to trap water until there is little or none left and only stops when it becomes saturated. This is where the "rechargeable" part comes in. The means to dry a desiccant is to apply heat. By plugging the Prem-i-air RMDH-09 into a power supply, like charging your mobile phone, the electric current provides heat which energises the water molecules and allows them to escape from the "trap".
