Think Gizmos: Portable Washing Machine TG23

15 Jul 2021 By Admin .

If you’re in the market for a portable washing machine, you’ll want to see how two of the most highly rated models compare in a head-to-head battle.

Think Gizmos TG23 Portable Washer Machine

8-pound Wash, 4.5-pound Spin Load

Portable washer machines are portable for a reason: their max loads are only a fraction of what you’d get in a full-sized model. The Think Gizmos is a twin-tub portable washer machine where the wash tub can hold onto eight pounds of clothes at a time and the spin tub is capped at 4.5 pounds.

15-minute Wash, 5-minute Spin

Both the Think Gizmos and the Giantex have dials on the control pad that allow you to adjust wash and spin times to up to 15 minutes and 5 minutes respectively. Because of their smaller tub capacities, the maximum amount of time should be able to get rid of most stains in a single cycle.


Portable washer machines need to be as compact as possible to make traveling easier on the user. The Think Gizmos takes up only about 24 x 15 inches of floorspace and stands 27 inches high. It’s pretty compact and should make finding a place to keep it in your RV or truck pretty easy, but as you’ll see later on in our comparison, the Giantex is considerably more space-efficient.

Dry Weight

With compactness comes lightweight, in most cases. At least this is true for the Think Gizmos which, without water or clothes in the tub, weighs only 27 pounds. Even though it’s not as heavy as other portable washer machines, it still may require an extra set of hands to safely lift and move the unit. The Giantex is only about three pounds heavier than this one.

Washing Performance

Now onto what matters most: how the Think Gizmos performs. Portable washing machines aren’t nearly as thorough at washing loads of laundry as full-sized models, but they definitely get the job done… eventually. The Think Gizmos is no different—it can require multiple 15-minute wash cycles to remove stains from clothing in normal wash mode. This can be a pain, but it’s completely unavoidable.
