My Review of The SPT WA-8070E 8,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner

SPT WA-8070E 8,000 BTU Portable AC

Hey again guys! I am back again with another breakdown for yet another portable air conditioner. This time, I purchased this air conditioner, because even though I’ve reviewed quite a few different portable air conditioners on this blog already, I had never reviewed an SPT-made unit before. I wanted to see how well it would work for my home. The SPT WA-8070E 8,000 BTU portable air conditioner is certainly compact and stylish, so I thought I would probably give it to my mother if it works well. Below, you will find a breakdown of the product!

Product Specifications

 In order to get a full understanding of the product, it is vital to look at the product’s specifications. Once you’ve taken a look at this information, you’ll have a better understanding of the product’s performance and capabilities.

  • 8,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner
  • Conveniently adjustable 24 hour timer
  • Fire-resistant PVC Housing
  • Meets all of the RoHS guidelines to ensure safe use
  • Lightweight at approximately 51 pounds
  • Compact design, being only 2 feet tall
  • Doubles as a dehumidifier

With the information above, you can rest assured that the product is lightweight, easy to move around and won’t become a trip hazard in your home!


Very Compact

Some individuals will need a portable air conditioner that is compact, short and small. The SPT WA-8070E is just that! I was actually a little surprised how small and lightweight it truly is. Whether you’ve got a small apartment or a double-wide trailer, this portable AC is the perfect size!

Convenient Timer

I have found that the digital thermostat and 24-hour timer work excellently together and make use very easy. I would assume that the timer would be able to cut back on energy usage and help to lower your electric bill. By adjusting these settings to your desired time and temperature, the AC will only operate, when the temperature rises too high.

Best for Small Rooms

Truthfully, this portable AC is too small to be effective for large rooms. With this in mind, you should do the math and make sure that 8,000 BTU is going to be sufficient for your room’s overall size. If you’re willing to remain near the unit, at all times, you shouldn’t have a problem.


The overall size of the product does make it convenient, but there are some cons that should be noted. As mentioned above, it isn’t suitable for big rooms. At the same time, the unit, despite its small stature, tends to get loud at times. It might not wake you up at night, but you’ll certainly know it is running!


This SPT portable air conditioner is a worthy cheaper alternative to the Honeywell MF08CESWW. As long as you know the limitations of this unit, you will find that it is definitely worth the price. Just don’t expect it to be able to cool a moderate to large sized room. However, it you want to use it close to your bed, it’ll keep you cool throughout the night!
