Some say that this is a dream come true! The Ultrasonic Vaporiser also acts as an Air Purifier, Ioniser, Aroma Diffuser and Night Lamp. No more condensation, because there is no heating element, the ultrasonic wave technology works on the vibration of the water at such a speed that water vapours are dispersed into the atmosphere to add moisture to the environment. The unit stays cool to touch and the vapours are cool so it is perfectly safe to place anywhere in the room, without fear of bacteria forming on soft furnishings. With over 6 lighting colours that can rotate or be set on the one colour or switched off, the unit is quiet, compact, attractive and safe to place in the nursery or children’s’ bedrooms. The automatic safety feature ensures that the Vaporiser switches off once the water has depleted, so you can go about your busy day without the worry of a dangerous electrical situation. The unit’s multiple functionality means that it is more than a Vaporiser.
Can be used with pure essential oils but needs to be cleaned out after every use to avoid build up of oils.
The vapouriser will work for 4 hours on the continuous mode and up to 8 hours on the intermittent mode.
Symptom: The power supply can not be switched on
a) There is insufficient water in the water tank. Simply fill the water tank to the max line. OR
b) The AC Adaptor is not connected properly. Ensure that the connection between the product and the socket is correctly plugged in before trying to switch on the unit again.
Symptom: Unit is not misting
Cause: There is insufficient water in the water tank. Simply fill the water tank to the max line.
Symptom: Mist cannot be properly
a) The water line the water tank has exceeded the max. water line which will not allow the mist to be produced properly. Remove the excess water form the tank ensuring that it reaches the max. line.
b) The ceramic disk is corroded. Clean inside the water tank with a soft clean cloth and cotton bud.
c) The floating ring inside the water tank is blocked. Pull the white ring forward and back slightly and make suere it is floating freely in the water.
d) The anion outlet at the back of the unit is blocked by dust. This will reduce the colume of air flow. Removeany dust or dirt from teh anion outlet and ensure theat there is sufficient airflow / ventilation around the unit.

I was disappointed at first as the steam didn't seem to be as much as I had hoped for. However, I soon discovered a little cap still floating around the box it came in. Once I put this on, it was all systems go!
I wouldn't say this is a silent machine, but it is certainly a comforting hum (but a little annoying if you use the 30sec on, 30 sec off setting) and is much much quieter than the traditional vaporizer that sounds like a boiling kettle.
The biggest plus is the safety - no hot water. The steam is not hot. NO CONDENSATION!! I don't have to spend the night worrying that my toddler might get out of bed and try to get to the machine to investigate.
My husband thinks it's a coincidence, but since using this (properly!!), our 2 year old who has never been a good sleeper, has gone from waking 3 - 5 times a night to just once. A miracle for our household. I also use a drop of lavender and when he has the sniffles, I use 2 drops of lavender and one of eucalyptus.

I wasn't sure what to expect with a vaporiser as I had read varying reviews on their success, however I am a complete convert. My 8 week old developed bronchiolitis and had a terrible wheezy cough, this product enabled her to sleep and rest and heal.
I am seriously contemplating getting another one so we don't have to choose which child is the sicker one to get the benefit of this while they sleep!

I ordered this as a last resort - my 5 month old has had chronic bronchialitis since she was 2 months old and catches every cold around (perhaps due to her older siblings, perhaps due to weak lungs? I really don't know). She is very wheezy and coughs a lot at night. Doctors just say there is not much I can do and she's on losec for reflux but she was waking herself up coughing constantly. Since the night we installed this, she has slept really well - there is no coughing and she is sleeping deeper than ever before. I add three drops of lavender and one of eucalyptus. It makes the air fresh and cool (which counters the dry oil heater we have) and we all sleep very peacefully now.

When my daughter became sick with a chesty awful cough and stuffy nose for the second time i regretted not buying a vaporiser, i borrowed a standard vicks one from a friend and while it helped with the congestion the room was left totally wet and daughter ended up damp if it was left on.
I purchased the ultrasonic one and was amazed with it in terms of it helping with daughters symptoms and absolutely NO condensation. I love how you can use it as a night light and adjust the settings so its not blasting full bore if you dont need it to! Absolutely fantastic product and would recommend it even though it is a bit dearer its well worth it.

I had purchased a vapor-eze last winter, but found I was spending alot on refills. Also, it didn't really help with a wheezy cold. Having used the Ultrasonic last night, the difference was amazing. Within 5min he stopping tossing around and his wheezing was gone.
I felt safe leaving it on all night, and didn't notice any condensation in the morning. So if you are undecided between this and the cheaper vapor-eze, it is worth spending the extra and you will save the difference by not spending on refills! The only downfall was the operation light is rather bright and lights up the room.
The Sleep Store says: If you keep pressing the button which controls the night light, you can select 'no nightlight' option.

I love this product, bought it on recommendation from the Facebook post when we had been through countless sleepless nights with our bub's constant coughing and colds - I ordered it first thing in the morning, it arrived that afternoon and that night I had my first good nights sleep in about a month!
Love the smell of the Sniffles oil recommended for purchase with it - one drop is enough. The low operating hum is soothing (no more radio static needed for the white noise) and the soft glow of the night light is reassuring. I feel totally comfortable leaving it on all night in bub's room without worrying aboout condensation or overheating.
I would say the changing light colour function is very exciting so we only use them when a bit of distraction is needed - not at bedtime! And the operating buttons are small and fiddly so you do need two hands free to turn the unit on and off, but these are minor quibbles.
Otherwise extremely happy with the product and with the usual faultless service from The Sleep Store - thanks for saving our sleep once again!

This ingenious product from Essentials-in-a-box is something else.
The winter bugs have been doing the rounds in my house and weâve been alternating the standard vaporiser between the kids bedrooms from night to night. The condensation was doing my head in and had gotten so bad that even the walls were crying (quite literally!) When I saw this new product advertised via your Facebook page, I knew I had to try it â if only to eliminate the incredible puddles on the windowsills I was being greeted by each morning.
This brilliant product is a vaporiser, air purifier, ioniser, aroma diffuser and a night light all in one!! When it was in full swing, it looked like there was a disco going on in my little manâs bedroom! But the best part of it all is that it leaves no condensation â like NONE WHATSOEVER â because there is no heating element!!
I am thoroughly pleased with this compact little beauty. Itâs so much smaller than the other vaporiser I was using (which is a big plus when storage is at a pinch) and I love the peace of mind knowing I can leave it in my childrenâs rooms without the fear of there being any burning incidents should little hands come in contact with it. The recommended Sniffles Essential oil that goes with it has a beautiful scent too.
So, it is safe to say, I am very, very happy with this product and can highly recommend it to anyone who is looking at an alternative to the standard Vicks vaporiser on the market.
