If you have dry eyes, dry skin, nosebleeds, dry sinuses, or chapped lips, you may feel the symptoms of dry air. These symptoms often occur during travel, when exposure to rough air in aircraft and hotel rooms is a burden. Portable humidifiers can even remedy this significantly overnight.
We went out and found some of the best humidifiers for the trip, and we looked beyond the price:
- Size : How easy can you take it or take it with you?
- Duration ]: How long does a single filling take?
- LED lights : Are there LED lights? Can they be deactivated (to avoid disturbances)?
- Design : Is the design aesthetically pleasing?
* Max. Operating hours are based on ongoing (non-intermittent) use.

Portableare small but powerful devices that increase humidity regardless of where you are. It comes in many different forms, depending on your preferences. For example, some use a water bottle as a tank while others have a built-in tank.
Most portable humidifiers use ultrasonic technology where high-frequency sound vibrations are used to produce water particles that are released into the air. Unfortunately, we could not identify a portable humidifier that uses evaporation technology (19459027), which is generally considered healthier.is particularly important to prevent contaminants such as dust, mold and bacteria from being released into the air.
As you've probably guessed, these humidifiers do not give moisture to a whole house. At least they humidify the air immediately around you (for example, if you are standing on a bedside table). at the most they can be used to moisten a small space (about 200 square feet).
This guide gives you an overview of the available options and takes into account humidifiers that meet a certain threshold of features, price, safety and customer satisfaction. It should be noted that products that have received less than one B + rating afterare excluded due to the overwhelming number of suspected counterfeit or biased ratings. We have also left out statements about the area (square meters) that these devices can moisten, as this can really only be determined by measured tests.

Dewy, $ 40
Dewy is first launched as a skin and hair hydration device and jumps from the trendy Idea That You Have The skin is thirsty and needs more air in the air. In the end, Dewy is another compact ultrasonic humidifier with a contemporary, instagrammable design for people who want to take moisture anywhere.
Like some of our other picks, Dewy is powered by a USB cable so you can plug it into your laptop, car, or other USB charging cradle. At normal, continuous setting it takes 10 hours. Change the setting to the intermittent setting and you will receive 20 hours.
Dewy is more expensive than humidifiers with similar specifications, but you might feel better knowing that 10% of the company's profits are spent on The Water Project. There is also a lack of LED light, which is problematic for use in the bedroom.
Mztdytl, $ 16
As with Dewy, Ostad and Sonifun, this is a reservoir humidifier somewhat less compact than some of the magic styles, but still very portable. It has a pills design (simialar to Dewy and Sonifun) and is available in black, blue and white.
We know that unlike some other picks, Mztdyl's LED light can be disabled to prevent any sleep interruption. It also claims to run for about 9 hours with a single fill, which is pretty good for a $ 16 portable humidifier. Like others, the cotton wick must be replaced – a pack of 10 costs about $ 9.
What is the name of this humidifier, you ask? We tried and failed. We have no idea. But if you want a portable humidifier with good specs at a great price, that's probably unimportant.
Ostad, $ 22
Ostad is really just a humidifier wand (like the Ourry) delivered with a matching mug. This means you do not have to use the supplied cup; You can put the rod in each container. The advantage here is that the longer your water reservoir is, the longer Ostad runs.
Including the mug, the humidifier is about 7 x 3 inches and much smaller than a wand. This makes it incredibly portable and easy to pack. Like some of our other picks (like Dewy and Ourry), Ostad is powered by USB so you can take it with you to the car, plug it into your computer, or even use a portable battery.
Ostad uses a cotton wick that you need to replace weekly, depending on how often you use your humidifier. Ostad is blue when running, so this may not be a good choice for the bedroom.
Ourry, $ 22
Most portable humidifiers with water bottles work by screwing a water bottle into the device. Ourry is different. The humidifier, which looks like a magic wand, can fall into any water container, including a cup or bottle. The advantage here is that it can run for a long time, depending on how big your container is.
Another notable benefit of this design is its size. At full length, Ourry is about the size of a chubby marker, making it extremely compact. You can make it even smaller by adjusting the bar, which makes it about 5 cm tall.
Like some of our other picks, Ourry is powered by USB so you can take it with you on the go, plug it into your laptop, and even replace the bundled cable with a different length of your choice. We especially appreciate that this small humidifier does not have bright light, which can be problematic in sleep.
Pure Enrichment, $ 30
Portable water humidifiers based on water bottles are theoretically more compact because the container is not built into the device. The downside to this design is that some Amazon customers are finding it difficult to find perfect bottles. However, Pure Enrichment does not seem to have too many of these symptoms.
Pure Enrichment is compact and aesthetically pleasing. This is usually not as important as the runtime, which is 6 hours per 16.9 ounce water bottle. At $ 30, we expected that this humidifier would run longer. However, it has been included as an option for those who are looking for a water bottle model.
The biggest concern with this portable humidifier is its light. It can not be turned off and critics have just complained too brightly – especially for a bedroom.

Sonifun, $ 20
Sonifun looks and behaves much like Dewy, but for half the price. What you give up with this difference of $ 20 is a slightly better design and 2 hours of uninterrupted running time. Not bad.
Sonifun uses ultrasound technology and is powered by USB, so you can use it with a laptop, a USB port in a car, or any USB charging stone. The humidifier is supplied with a cotton hose (which behaves like a filter) – one already in the unit and one spare in the box. A five-pack of additional filters costs $ 11.
Finally, you have three color options: pink, white and gray. It also includes an LED light that can display a variety of colors, but thankfully this feature can be disabled.
