Performance and use
With an 800-ml water tank, this humidifier has a much better capacity than some of the other cheap humidifiers on the market that can only hold 100-300 ml of water. Having said that, it’s still only really suitable for small rooms as it’s not powerful to humidify large spaces. While the manufacturers state that the humidifier runs for up to 10 hours, in practice this is likely to be closer to 6 hours, so it’s unlikely to last all night.
You can use this humidifier with plain water to increase the humidity level in your home, or optionally add a few drops of an essential oil to help the place smell nice. You can also try using essential oils like eucalyptus to alleviate chest congenstion.
While it isn’t completely silent, the VicTsing 800ml Electric Ultrasonic Humidifier runs very quietly so it’s quite easy to sleep with it on. However, the blue light on the power button doesn’t turn off, so it might disturb you at night. Also, the control button makes a loud beep when you press it. This can wake other people up if you want to turn the humidifier on or off at night.
This humidifier is generally effective at alleviating cold and hayfever symptoms. It’s also good at preventing dry skin and generally preventing the air in your home from becoming too dry.
This product is good for a child’s bedroom as it can double up as a nightlight. It’s also quite safe as it emits cool rather than warm mist so there’s no danger of getting burnt by hot steam.
Pros and cons
The VicTsing 800ml Electric Ultrasonic Humidifier is a versatile and effective gadget ideal for small rooms. However, the bright blue light and beeping noise made by the control button mean it’s not perfect for the bedroom.
If you’d like something with a large capacity you should consider the Vicks VH750 Warm Mist Humidifier, which has a capacity of 3.8 litres rather than 800 millilitres.
A smaller alternative from VicTsing is the VicTsing Aroma Diffuser 300ML which has an attractive wood-effect finish and a 7-colour LED light.
