Although made entirely of plastic the device is nevertheless attractively designed with a wood grain effect except for the translucent cover of the LED light display. With a reservoir capacity of 150ml this unit is on the small size but should still diffuse the oil aroma for up to nine ahours according the the User Guide.
To operate the device is simplicity itself. Detach the the top of the unit and the cover beneath from the base, fill the unit with water to the indicated mark on the tank, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil, replace the top and cover, plug in and switch on by preessing down on the right side of the unit from the top.
There are no external buttons or controls. There is just the one pressure switch on the base activated pressing down on the device. One press will turn it on and it will scrol through the seven LED colours as it mists. A second press will lock it to the current LED colour as misting continues. Press again and the LED lights will go off although the misting carries on. One more press to turn both lights and misting off. The product Amazon page mentions four timer settings but there are no sign of any timing controls and so I suspect this may be a translation error.
The diffuser is nicely designed and should sit well in a home, office or clinical environment, the lighting is subtle and unobtrusive and the misting process is pleasant and can lift or give atmosphere to the room. Be aware that due to the nature of the misting process some water may be precipitated around the device so do not locate it close to sensitive objects. This diffuser emits a fair amount of mist, more so than most of the others I have tried, which is a good or bad thing according to your outlook.
Of the several diffusers I have experimented with this is one of the very best as it simple to use, looks good and works well. This is the first I have tried with this scalloped body shape and which features no button controls.
This is a very attractive and eminently functional unit and should answer all your needs when looking for an oil diffuser and humidifier.
The price at just £22.99 must be hard to better too.
