We love gadgets which add value to everyday objects because it fits in with our deeply held conviction that everything should be used, re-used and then used again if possible. Nowadays unfortunately it’s hard to find these products, which is why we’re loving this new eco friendly portable humidifier which has just hit the market.
The Satechi USB Portable Humidifier breaks new ground by utilizing your existing plain old plastic mineral water bottle as the liquid source. So instead of carrying around a hulking great humidifier to freshen your air, you can just attach this puppy to the top of your bottle and bingo, instant action.
The other cool (!) thing about the device is it can also act as an aroma diffuser if you drop some fragrance oil into the bottle first, and of course it’s great on hot nights as a mister for cold water. The thing is powered by a USB port, so you’ll need to either carry along your laptop (joking) or use one of the increasingly common phone charger plugs with a USB socket in it to do the deed.
It features a dim blue moody night light, uses just 2 watts and comes with two filters and a USB cable. You’ll have to supply your own high class mineral water bottles though. Small, neat and very eco useful, what’s not to love? Priced at $29.99.
