EVDC500 Energy Smart Evaporative Humidifier
The EVDC500 whole-room, two-tank evaporative humidifier is driven by a Energy Smart DC motor that is more powerful and uses 90% less energy versus a comparable Vornado AC motor-driven humidifier. The minimalistic design features a clear, easy-fill 1-gallon tank that is simple to use and maintain, with a low-water indicator that shows when it’s time to refill. Customizable humidity settings paired with precise auto humidity control allow you to tailor the natural evaporation process. The EVDC500 ensures a comfortable breathing environment with the peace of mind of a 5-year satisfaction guarantee and 10-year motor warranty.
Maximize efficiency with one button.
With Energy Smart Mode, humidity circulation is controlled automatically using as little as 1 Watt to keep you comfortable. To use the least amount of energy while enjoying a precisely humidified space — just push the leaf.
Humidify all the air in the room.
A Vornado humidifier uses special airflow called Vortex Action to quickly humidify all the air in the room. The air flows fast and gentle to create consistent, natural comfort unlike any other.
Intelligently consistent comfort.
The Vornado senses how much humidity and circulation is needed to maintain your ideal environment and makes adjustments automatically.
Humidify the way nature intended.
Unlike a typical misting humidifier, evaporative humidification uses a wick to naturally humidify all the air in the room without making a wet mess on the surfaces around it. Although you can’t see it working, you can certainly feel the difference.
Clearly better with SimpleTank.
The EV-Series humidifiers utilize Vornado's new SimpleTank System. The new 1-gallon water tank is easy-to-carry, fill, install, and clean. It is clearly better.
We believe in our Energy Smart DC humidifiers — we back each one with a 5-year satisfaction guarantee and 10-year motor warranty.

UPDATE: I purchased two of these in January 2018. As you can see below, I originally gave it a glowing 5 star review. That's now down to 2 stars. Why? Because I'm having the same leaking problem so many others are having within both units. It's happening to far too many people to be a random manufacturing defect. It's a design defect. I can no longer recommend this product until Vornado sorts this out.
I rarely give 5 stars unless a product approaches perfection. This one does. After having had ultrasonic humidifiers, I can definitively say I'm not going back after owning this model. Evaporative is definitely the better technology. The ultrasonics will spew bacteria in your air unless you clean them daily. And they will leave white dust all over the place unless you exclusively use distilled water, which is expensive and impractical. Any evaporative model eliminates all that. Traditionally, the knock on the evaporative models has been they are loud and thus not appropriate for bedrooms. This model is whisper quiet on the low speed - you can barely hear anything. High speed is loud, but you only need to use that if it's been turned off and you want to raise the humidity as quickly as possible. It can operate most of the time on low and maintain your preferred humidity.
This model is on a pricier side, but it's worth every penny given the superior features, design, and build quality compared to the competition. It includes a humidistat that has a setting range of 40-60% humidity. When it comes reaches your set level, it'll turn off and come back on again when needed. This is a mandatory feature in any humidifier in my opinion - and many cheap ones lack it. The electronic display is photosensitive and will darken as your room does, which is huge for us sleepers sensitive to light. The two 1 gallon tanks are easy to remove and fill. They won't fit in most sinks though. Either use your tub or a sink with a hand sprayer faucet. The tanks have a very subtle backlighting that will blink when both are empty. This feature is defeatable if it annoys you. Don't worry, you can't really see it in the dark. The best part is the DC motor for the fan. These are far more energy efficient and durable than the typical AC fan motor - as evidenced by the 10 year warranty you get on the motor. Lastly, it is easily comes apart for cleaning thanks to good design.
Cons are few and really nitpicking more than true flaws. There's an eco button that supposedly provides better energy efficiency. From what I can tell, this is a dubious claim. It basically allows the fan to run in various speeds as needed beyond just high and low. But when my unit was off because the set humidity was reached, hitting the eco button resulted in the fan coming on and staying on - albeit at a speed slower than the normal low speed. I don't see how causing the fan to run when it otherwise wouldn't is more efficient. So I leave that feature off. My other issue is the lack of an on board hygrometer, which is a readout that tells you what the humidity in the room currently is. Finally, the fact that this requires two filter wicks means you have a consumable that incurres a lifetime recurring expense to operate this. They run about $13-$14 a pair and the manual states they'll last 6-8 weeks on average. That will add up over the years, and they can be tough to find. Two are included to get you started.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this evaporative model over ultrasonics. No white dust + no bacteria in the air = yes please. And I recommend this Vornado because it's high quality. It's relatively expensive, but you get what you pay for. They have a cheaper 1 gallon model with the DC motor, the EVDC300. They also have some even cheaper models with AC motors and varying water tank capacities if you want to save more. I'll conclude with a piece of advice: if you use an evaporative unit, get some bacteriostat solution to add to the water. It'll keep the unit and water clear of microorganisms and will greatly extend the life of the filter wicks beyond the estimated 8 weeks. I consider its use mandatory.
Garbage. Total garbage, and I'm stunned Vornado released this product in this condition.
Just beyond the 30-day return period, it started leaking, and hasn't stopped since. Product has a fatal design flaw, which allows water to rapidly leak. The leak is NOT caused by a cracked tank or cracked reservoir; replacing those parts doesn't fix the issue. It will rapidly leak a full gallon of water (50% of its capacity) out of the seams between the tanks and reservoir. Major issue is that the leak isn't obvious, it only happens when one of the water tanks is at a lower level than the other. This might happen if you refill one tank at a time, or if the unit isn't on a perfectly level surface. Even the slightest tilt (such as in an older home) will cause one tank to drain slightly faster than the other.
Because of the above flaw, a typical scenario is this: you fill the tanks, everything looks okay, you go to sleep. Wake up to a gallon of water on the floor the next morning.
Unit is useless, I cannot stress this enough. I had such high hopes, and will never waste my money on a Vornado product again.
Otherwise I liked the product and kept humidity well within desired settings.
It's a shame as I really like this unit but I will have to return it. It is cleverly designed, compact and powerful. But poor quality control or poor design has created a slow leak issue. Perhaps even a hairline fracture that was created during shipping. I did look for one but couldn't find one.
I give it two stars because it performed well and is well designed. Only two positive points I can give it. Took away three because I have to send it back, ruined the top of my dresser, and because it leaked at all which is a massive inconvenience since I have to now search for another humidifier.
Update: January 31, 2018. The leaking has just gotten worse. How disappointing. $150 is a premium and this thing has become unusable. But - the return window is closed! :-)

I am so glad I didnt consider all the negative feedbacks other left on here about this humidifier.
It truly a amazing humidifier. First off. Its on 3 parts. Making it easy to wash or desinfect. The bottom dish and the 2 tanks are 1G each so easy to clean. This humidifier uses 2 filters at same time. But they are just about $15 for a set. I rince my filters each day to prolong its life.
2nd this is the most power efficient machine. Taking 9W on turbo setting. There are 3 speeds. Low, high and turbo on low it probably uses 1W. Theres Energy Smart setting that can be used on low or high that will automatically set fan speed depending on the humidity level wanted. Its just super!
On turbo speed it unleashes 4G water in a 24h period. Needs feeling daily. It suits me as I can carry the humidifier to my bedroom at night. Theres a little grip on base that makes so easy to move room to room.
I been using this humidifier for over 1 week now, almost non-stop. No leaks, works perfect. Turbo just a little noisy, but rest of setting arent noisy.
