Utilizing an ultrasonic humidification method that consumes little power enables the user to use this item as a personal humidifier to readily humidify a space. Also recommended for use on vacation or on business in hotel rooms that are prone to being overly dry. Since it is a compact size, it can also be taken out with you in its own small pouch. Since it humidifies at a rate of 100ml / h, it can also be used in offices prone to having dry air, and also comes in handy in the prevention of colds. The tank can easily be removed and the water level is easy to read, making it easy to replenish the amount of water in the tank.

The design of this product is absolutely human. It immediately explains its function. You see how everything fits together without having to think about it. The designers managed to reduce it to a very simple shape. It also fits perfectly to the brand. They use electricity but in a really meaningful way in a simple composition. It is just done in a very simple and surprising way. This presents an excellent example of quality design.
