VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier: What is it?
Currently only available second hand, the VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier does a good job of humidifying small rooms at a budget, without the need for a host of bells and whistles, so it’s a good option for anyone looking to dip their toe into the world of humidifiers without committing financially to an expensive machine with upkeep costs. It’s not a humidifier with an operational learning curve, a simple dial allows you to adjust its output and the large opening makes it easy to clean too.
VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier review: Price
With an RRP of $39.99, the VicTsing Cool Mist is one of the cheaper humidifiers on the market. For this price, you really can’t expect the exceptional performance of humidifiers like the much more expensive Levoit LV600HH (opens in new tab), or even half of the features, but with features like auto shut off and the ability to run continuously for up to 24 hours, it’s a good budget bedroom humidifier that can safely run overnight.
VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier review: Design and features
- Easy to use humidifier
- Tank is small at just 0.48 gallons
- Enough to adequately humidify a small room for up to 24 hours
Dimensions (L x W x H): 10.8 x 7.5 x 10.2 inches
Max room size: 270 sq ft
Water tank: 0.48 gal
Designed to be easy to refill, the VicTsing Cool Mist is an easy to use humidifier and its large tank opening means it’s easy to clean too. The tank itself is on the small side at just 0.48 gallons, but that is enough to adequately humidify a small room for up to 24 hours on a lower mist setting. A 360 rotating nozzle ensures that mist is evenly spread around instead of just being sent in one general direction. This does also mean that it’s best placed with a bit of space around it, otherwise you’ll find yourself with a damp wall.
It’s also a really quiet humidifier which, along with the auto shut-off feature, helps make this a good option as for your bedroom. You’ll be able to sleep straight through with no annoying operational noises or worrying about the tank running out of water. This makes the VicTsing Cool Mist a good budget option for babies’ rooms too.
VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier review: Performance
- One of the least powerful humidifiers available
- Low operating cost
- No filters or wicks need replacing
TechGearLab (opens in new tab) did find the VicTsing Cool Mist to be one of the less powerful humidifiers in its range of tests, but it was also one of the cheapest. They complemented its ease of use, with features like a carrying handle for easy refilling and large opening for cleaning, but they did feel that it was missing a few features that could boost its user-friendliness. They did comment on its low operating cost, thanks to its economical use of electricity and lack of any filters or wicks that would need replacing.
VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier review: User reviews
- Quick to set up
- Users no longer wake with a dry throat or sinuses
Online user reviews tend to give the VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier an average rating of 4 out of 5. They particularly compliment its quick set up, ease of use and fuss-free refilling process, which helps get this humidifier doing its job in no time at all. A number of users bought the Cool Mist as a bedroom humidifier and have commented that they’ve found they no longer wake with a dry throat or sinuses. Some users have found that it lasts them a couple of nights before needing refilling, while others prefer to refill the tank every 12 hours, but that’s still long enough for a good night’s sleep.
Should you buy the VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier?
If you’re looking for a souped-up humidifier with built in humidistat, auto mode and other high-end features, this isn’t the humidifier for you. This is a simple, easy-to-use, budget humidifier. It does its job well and is easy to refill, so if you’re looking for a fuss-free first humidifier, try the VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier.
It’s particularly good for babies bedrooms and the auto shut off means its safe to use throughout the night as it will shut off as soon as it runs out of water. It’s not the best option for large rooms, but does a great job in small bedrooms.
Another simple humidifier is the Honeywell HCM-350 and it’s great value-for-money. The low price point does mean it is also missing a humidistat and, therefore, an auto mode but it does have a larger tank than the VicTsing, so can handle larger rooms, up to 500 square foot in size.
This has a bold design that’s capable of cycling through seven different colors and diffusing essential oils while humidifying the air. If you’re looking for a simple yet affordable humidifier that can help add an ambience to your room, this is a great choice
