TaoTronics Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier

February 29, 2016 • By



Listed as one of the top ten humidifiers of 2016, the TaoTronics Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier has been making waves in the industry. If you are planning to use your humidifier frequently and require more than just the basics without wanting to spend a fortune, then the TaoTronics Humidifier should be on your shopping list.

The Basics

The TaoTronics Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier offers a host of features which make it very appealing to consumers who are willing to spend a bit more for a humidifier that is top of the line.

The TaoTronics Humidifier has a micro-porous cartridge that filters the water better than usual filters do. Normal filters fail to remove micro-organisms, calcium and magnesium ions where the microporous cartridge does. This results in mist which is healthier, cleaner and purified. A humidifier such as this would be particularly useful in babies’ rooms as they are particularly susceptible to bacteria and other viruses.

You will no longer have to constantly fill up the humidifier if you purchase this one as the TaoTronics Humidifier has a large one gallon capacity. This means that it will last up to 15 hours before needing to be refilled. I also found it very easy to refill unlike other humidifiers which tend to spill or sometimes leak.

One of the best features about the TaoTronics Humidifier is that it is lightweight and can be easily moved around from room to room. It is compact and has a pleasant design that allows for it to be placed on a bedside table or a desk. The TaoTronics Humidifier also doubles as a nightlight for children and a timer can be set so that the humidifier switches off in the middle of the night.

Although it has been advertised as a very quiet humidifier, I found that this depends on which setting it is on. What I really liked about it is that there were three different settings – low, medium and high – but I did find the noise on the high setting to be somewhat audible.

Not only can you control the pressure setting of the humidifier, but you can also set the level of humidity which you want the humidifier to release the mist at. This is a handy feature throughout the year as humidity levels tend to change quite drastically according to the seasons.

Cleaning The TaoTronics Humidifier proved to be relatively easy as it comes with a cleaning brush. This was useful as I did not feel completely certain what type of tool I was supposed to use to clean this humidifier with. The brush helps to clean difficult-to-reach spots and ensures that you are able to keep the humidifier clean.

I found unfortunately found out that it is relatively difficult to source new filters for this humidifier. However, customer service at TaoTronics was responsive and very helpful. The humidifier also came with a two year warranty.

The Verdict

It is slightly expensive for a humidifier although the quality is great. If you are willing

to spend a bit more for a quality humidifier that is compact and easy to use, then keep the TaoTronics as an option.
