This is a strong little dryer perfect for my one-bedroom condo. To make the vent work for me, I purchased an aluminum coil tube from a local hardware store as well as aluminum tape to secure it to the small oblong shaped attachment provided. I have it venting out through a window. This little dryer can dry a load of three pairs of jeans a couple of tops and some undergarments in 20 minutes if the manual knob is turned to the red heat section. I am using my smart phone timer to monitor the end of the dry cycle as I don't want to leave it on for 160-200 minutes! I wish I would have bought this sooner! It's impressive!
