I would love if this were a viable option. No membranes to deal with, no high pressure pumps, no through hulls. I googled "the most energy efficient dehumidifier" and came up with this:

Introducing the Most Energy-Efficient Dehumidifier on the Planet

From the above link: "Using an unprecedented 4.9 amps of energy (or 4.16 liters per kilowatt hour), the Santa Fe Impact exceeds Energy Star standards by fifty percent."

1,000W / 13V == 77Ahrs in one kilowatt.

77Ah / 4.16 = 18.5Ah consumed to produce 1 liter of water.

Hopefully the "atmospheric generators" are more efficient than that!


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
