The Taotronics TT-AH001 is like a little fish bowl that you can put on your nightstand (or your child's nightstand) to provide a moody LED nightlight, the current time and, oh yes, to humidify the air. The unit isn't exactly haute bedroom couture, but it has a pleasantly tech-y look and the transparent water compartment, which holds over a gallon of water, gives off a pleasant blue glow and really looks like it should have fish swimming in it. (This isn't necessarily recommended.) There's a micro-porous filter inside to get rid of any nasty organisms, other than fish, that might find the water a pleasant environment to breed in and to make sure the particles of water it sprays into the air don't pick up any bad odors if you're slow to refresh the supply, though one reviewer notes that the mist has a natural iodine smell. The unit is rated to provide 15 hours worth of humid air, so it won't give out on you in the middle of the night, no matter how long you sleep in.
The mist nozzle can be rotated through 360 degrees to aim the humidity where it's needed. The control panel on the side lets you set the intensity of the mist and includes a timer that can run the unit for anywhere up to 24 hours. (Given that it can only provide 15 hours worth of mist, this may require some refilling on the go.) Depending on what you're using the unit for, you can set it to provide up to 100 percent humidity, which may only be of interest if you're using it to help plants grow, which is a possible application. The unit runs quietly, at 38 decibels, so if you like the gentle noise of a humidifier to lull you to sleep, this unit may be too quiet for you.
Some other smart humidifiers on the market include the Motorola MBP83SN Smart Nursery, which is part of a complete, automated child care package from Motorola; the Guardian Technologies PureGuardian H7550; and the extremely high-tech-looking Dyson AM10.
Has wonderful review on Youtube and does live up to its reputation. Brilliant!
Machine is better than I expected. Have had for a week and no problems yet. The digital design works well. Good product!
The difficult part is filling the tank, not a friendly process at all. The output piece on top does not have any easy knob or way to get it out of the tank...
Wow! This unit is so amazing to look at especially at night with the blue nightlight on and the colorful LCD display... Works great. Amazing price.
80 euro jump! Not worth it at all. I am surprised of the positive reviews! The filter is useless (if you can call filter)... Absolutely not recommended!
