We get enquiries on a regular basis asking what the differences are between the current DD8L and the new DD8L Zambezi. Although they are both desiccant dehumidifiers the differences are considerable.
The DD8L was designed about 8 years ago now so it should come as no surprise to learn that lessons learnt over the years from the initial design have been incorporated into Zambezi, hence the internals only sharing one common part.
The new design means that Zambezi extracts more water using less energy, but that is only the start of the differences which include.

As you can see although the original DD8L is good Zambezi just takes the whole thing to a completely different level with a host of really cool features, most of which came directly from customers, and this is why Zambezi is proving to be such a huge hit with customers.
