What it does - emits a plume of a very fine, ultrasonically generated mist that helps to humidify the air right here at the desk where I am typing this, making for a more comfortable working environment because I don't dry out as much as I breath.
What it does not do - humidify a whole room, it's just too small, BUT, I have been filling it and leaving it running right before bed time, and do seem to wake up a bit less dried out, so it seems to be helping overnight as well, at least a bit. Have not tried it on bed stand, but will.
+ Effective for "personal space" humidifying, increases personal comfort when close to you.
+ Absolutely silent! Won't distract or keep you awake.
+ Very lite weight and compact - critical for taking on long international trips.
+ Very cleaver design - internal wick draws water up to the ultrasonic generator in the lid, where it is converted to a jet of mist - note that electrical contacts in lid must align to get power to the ultrasonic generator - rubber plug serves double duty, as plug/handle in the cap, and then as part of the on switch, where it must be inserted to keep the unit turned on - believe the contacts in the bottom of the bowl sense when all water is gone and turn the unit off.
+ Friendly appearance, with optional face stickers (I use the smiley one)
- Small capacity (60ml), so you have to fill regularly, but worth it for the trade-off in weight and size.
Notes on operation
>Must remover rubber stopper from the lid and insert the stopper into the on/off switch so that it closes the switch in order to power up the unit
>Must align electrical contacts on lid with those on base. Very easy to do, just know that you have to do it.
>Wick must be pressed up against the ultrasonic generator in the lid. Comes assembled this way, BUT, you can rotate and separate the wick assembly from the lid to replace the wick, so, if you do, be sure to put it back together again the right way - so that the spring pushes the wick+wick holder up against the metal generator in the lid. Again, simple to do, but I forgot to put the spring back in when I was fooling around with it, and it would not work as there was no water reaching the generator. Wick assembly has four parts - wick, wick holder, spring, outer cylinder. The spring pushes the wick holder plus wick upward like a piston within the outer cylinder to make sure the wick contacts the ultrasonic generator. Really clever, as it allows the orientation of the device to be water reservoir below, ultrasonic generator above, keeping the whole design very compact and simple. Just put it back together the right way if you take it apart.
Net, highly recommended for humidifying your immediate/personal space. No data on reliability, however, as I've only been using it for this one trip so far. Will update review with additional experience.
1. Put one of the small cotton filters in the stick-like compartment that attaches to the inside of the lid. This compartment is much like the inside of a retractable pen. There is a spring around an inner piece and a flared base on the outer piece which will lock in to the lid. The cotton won't go all the way in, so a small length of it should be sticking out of the open end. That is also the end with the flared base.
2. Push the end of the stick-like compartment with the flared base carefully into the hole in the center of the inside of the lid, lining up the 3 grooves of the flared base with the 3 notches in the lid. It should go in a couple millimeters. Lock it in place by twisting very very slightly, almost imperceptibly. When you tug firmly on the stick, it should not loosen.
3. Set aside the lid. Fill the body (the part with the face) (that sounds weird) approximately 1/2 way with water.
4. Place the lid on the body by lining up the metal sensors. On my model, the lid is not perfectly round, so it only fits on the body one way.
5. REMOVE THE RUBBER TIP ON THE OUTSIDE TOP OF THE LID! Why this was not made explicitly clear is beyond me. You'll use a little bit of force, but don't be afraid. It's just a piece of rubber or silicone with a slightly flared base. It covers the hole through which the steam escapes. You'll see a small metal circle inside the lid with a piece of very fine mesh.
6. Plug in the USB to your computer and the other end to the humidifier.
7. Press the power button just above the plug on the back of the humidifier. Steam should appear almost instantly.
I don't know how long the cotton filter will last, but it only comes with two of them, and there is no model number. I have no clue where one would buy refills.
Set up was a pain in the bum, largely because the instructions are in badly translated English. I'm not kidding, it reads "product must be placed in the plane, the hat to open, pour some water, pay attention to the water not the cup mouth..." Two key points to set up: the silver dots must be precisely aligned and you're never quite sure if it's the power source or the dots that are the problem (wiggling the top a bit and repeatedly hitting the power button finally got me there); and the little black nub on the lid must be removed. I don't know why the nub is there in the first place.
The biggest downside of all? Whenever it is on, it has a high pitched whine. Thus this is ideal for those with deafness in the higher frequencies. Have i managed to block the sound out eventually? Yes. But it is indeed a highly annoying feature.
All in all, i'm glad i have it because it's cute and it clearly is putting some moisture into my air, but i probably wouldn't buy another due to the low output and the piercing high pitched shriek.
