In this review we will be testing out the Morus Zero Portable Dryer to see how it performs and whether or not a portable dryer makes sense to bring along on camping trips or outdoor adventures.
Unboxing the Morus Zero Portable Dryer
The Morus Zero Portable Dryer arrives in a standard cardboard box, within that is the product box. The packaging was more than adequate, with the dryer nestled in a cocoon of foam padding. Even the delivery person’s rough handling couldn’t disturb the dryer’s peaceful slumber. As I peeled away the layers of packaging, the dryer emerged unscathed, with not a scratch or dent to be found. It was a testament to the manufacturer’s commitment to quality and attention to detail.
Included with the Morus Dryer is a quick start guide, manual, power cord and a shoe rack.
Build of the Morus Zero Portable Dryer
The Morus Zero Portable Dryer is not your average household appliance. It is a sleek and minimalist machine with a modern look that could fit seamlessly into any home.
The Morus Zero boasts an eco-friendly recyclable shell. Not only will your clothes be dry, but you’ll also be doing your part for the environment.
The control panel display on the Morus Zero Portable Dryer has a sleek and modern design, with a minimalist yet functional approach. The display is easy to read and navigate, with large icons and buttons that make it a breeze to use. But what really sets it apart is its intuitive nature. Just select the mode you would like to use and the dryer takes over and gets the job done quickly and efficiently. It offers 7 pre-set drying modes and a separate sterilization option.
Inside is a durable stainless steel drum that will help dry clothes efficiently and effectively, without any wear and tear on the machine itself. This innovative device also comes equipped with ultraviolet (UV) light to kill 99.99% of bacteria and smells on clothes.
The Morus Zero comes equipped with a magnetic lint filter. No more pesky lint balls clogging up the machine. Just pop the filter out, clean it off, and you’re good to go. And then there is the neodymium magnetic BLDC motor. This powerful motor ensures that clothes are dried quickly and quietly, without any unnecessary noise.
It has an easy plug-in, no-hassle installation process that has it up and running in no time. No complicated instructions or hose hook up, just plug it in and start drying clothes.
The last feature of the dryer is its water collection tank. This tank is specifically designed to capture all of the excess water that is created during the drying process, ensuring that clothes come out perfectly dry every time.
Capacity of the Morus Zero Portable Dryer
The Morus Dryer has a capacity of 0.78 cu. ft. or 3.3lb (1.5kg) which Morus claims can hold up to 8 t-shirts or 1-3 people’s daily changes. In the pictures above I have demonstrated the capacity with standard body towels. In which, one fits great, two is a bit of a squeeze and three would never get dry. The claimed eight t-shirts is doable, but 3 peoples daily outfits would not be. Optimal usable capacity in my opinion lands on two towels, or a daily outfit, such as jeans, shirts and under garments.
Drying Time of the Morus Zero Portable Dryer
With its advanced technology, this dryer achieves a faster drying time than traditional dryers. Its secret lies in its innovative design and patented dehydration technology that involves multiple sets of sensors and intelligent control programs. They automatically adjust the airflow speed, heating power, and other parameters during the drying process to accelerate the evaporation of water and maximize airflow and heat distribution, allowing clothes to dry in record time.
For the first drying test I decided to go with two towels, which seems right at capacity for this portable dryer. I pushed the Smart Dry button and they were dry in just under 25 minutes. Next up, I threw in a load of jeans, a pair of shorts, a shirt, and boxers. The Morus Zero Portable Dryer once again rose to the occasion. The clothes were dry in just over 30 minutes with no damage to any of the items and everything came out fresh and fluffy.
The intelligent sensor in the dryer detects the moisture level in the clothes and adjusts the drying time accordingly. This means you don’t have to worry about over-drying or under-drying your clothes, which can damage them and make them wear out faster. Plus, that smart technology saves energy and reduces electricity use.
The Morus Zero Portable Dryer is automatic. Once you load your clothes into the dryer, you can sit back and relax. The dryer does all the work for you, from sensing the moisture level to adjusting the drying time. You don’t have to keep checking on your clothes or worry about them getting wrinkled. The dryer even has a wrinkle release function that smooths out any creases in your clothes.
The Morus Zero Portable Dryer is truly trouble-free. It’s easy to set up and use, with a user-friendly interface that anyone can navigate. What I appreciated most about the Morus One Portable Dryer how quiet it is, I hardly even noticed it was running. Its efficiency and ease of use makes drying clothes effortless.
The Morus Zero Portable Dryer comes with shoe rack that fits one pair of shoes. This innovative accessory allows you to dry your shoes quickly and efficiently. The shoe drying rack is easy to install as it just slides into the center hole in the back of the dryer. The Morus Zero Portable Dryer has a shoe setting that keeps the drum from spinning and uses a gentle, yet powerful, warm air flow to dry out shoes. While not as effective as something like a DryGuy that gets inserted into the shoe itself, the Morus does get the job done.
Let’s discuss potentially taking this into the outdoors and whether or not it makes sense for camping or other outdoor adventures. The Morus Dryer can run off of a battery generator, but there’s a catch. The Morus Zero requires a generator with a minimum output of 1500 watts, anything lower and the dryer will stall out. This is an important consideration for those looking to use the Morus Zero in an off-grid environment.
While the ability to run on a battery generator is a great feature, it does come with some drawbacks. The most significant downside is that it severely decreases the run time of even the largest capacity battery generators. This means that if you plan on using the Morus Zero in an off-grid setting, you’ll need to bring along your solar panels to charge up your battery generator after you’re done using the dryer. This may seem like a hassle, but if having a dryer on your outdoor adventure is a priority, then it’s a small price to pay for the convenience.
However, if you are at a campground that offers grid power, the Morus Zero Portable Dryer is a very nice convenience to have. You can easily plug the dryer into an electrical outlet and use it to dry your clothes quickly and efficiently. This is a great option for people who want to enjoy the benefits of off-grid living but still have access to modern conveniences.
And with its quiet operation, you won’t even notice it’s there, except for the fact that your clothes will be dry in no time.
Portability of the Morus Zero Portable Dryer
Portability is of course relative, but when it comes to dryers, the Morus weighs in at only 28.7 lbs. and is 16.3 in wide, so it is super easy to carry and does take up a lot of space. Its compact size and lightweight design make it easy to move around and store, making it perfect for small spaces, apartments, and RVs. Plus, the dryer is low maintenance and durable, so you don’t have to worry about it breaking down or needing repairs.
