Humidifiers can be wonderful things, but they also happen to be essentially giant tanks of water, which makes them pretty hard to haul around, and if you want to take one with you internationally, you’ll also need adapters. Fortunately, Satechi has designed a humidifier you can actually take with you, that actually solves the water problem in a clever way. For cleaning the air, something like the Austin Air Healthmate – Best Air Purifier for Smoke and Dust is still needed.
It’s actually a clever piece of engineering, starting with the water. You don’t need a custom water tank or any tank at all. As you can see from the photo above, it’s entirely a matter of sticking a filter into a bottle or glass of water, plugging the humidifier in, and letting it do its work. If you’re using a bottle, you can even tighten the humidifier down as a cap, meaning you don’t have to worry about knocking it over.
As for power, you can either unplug it from the USB to shut it off, or simply wait eight hours; it has an automatic cut-off switch. And the USB adapter renders the problem of having the right plug moot: if you’ve got a cell phone adapter that fits local outlets, that means you can probably plug this in with zero issues.
They’ve even included a small blue light with the device, just to make things that much more soothing. You will need to clean the filters on a regular basis, and a device this tiny that does this job will have its limits: It’ll probably be good for hotel rooms and not much else.
Still, if you need a humidifier, or just prefer a little more control over your environment, this looks to go a long, long way towards giving you what you want, when you want it. It’s currently $23 on Satechi’s website.
