Air-O-Swiss 7146 Travel Humidifiers

One of the few truly portable small humidifiers, the Air-O-Swiss 7146 is a lightweight solution to dry air wherever you go. This compact, travel humidifier will fit in a travel bag, most purses or briefcases, or simply in your pocket. There are no tanks to fill. Instead, you insert into the unit a 16-20 oz. water bottle that you can purchase nearly anywhere. Then, you plug in the AOS 7146 and enjoy moist, healthy air anywhere you may be.

While at work, visiting family or simply traveling, the Air-O-Swiss 7146 is the perfect solution for dry air wherever you go. When you are finished, wipe the unit down before storing. Most bottled water is distilled or purified, but if sediment or mineral buildup is a concern EZCal Cleaner will work just as well with the 7146 as with any Air-O-Swiss humidifier.

Great product and fast delivery
  Great Find
Reviewed by: an allergy sufferer from California

A really simple and effective way to humidify your bedroom at night. I have used a number of warm and cool mist humidifiers before, but this one is by far the easiest to keep clean and use. It's almost noise-free too, a nice plus for those who sleep light.

Reviewed by: Wintertime Heat Sufferer  from Vicksburg, Mississippi

Winter indoor hear has always been a problem for my sinuses. Many mornings I would wake with a headache and bleeding sinuses. Since I started using the Air O Swiss travel humidifier, the indoor heat is not a problem. I love my humidifier so much that I have given two as gifts. There is little to no maintenance of the travel model because you use a clean water bottle every night. When I wake in the morning, I let the cool mist lubricate my eyes and face. It feels wonderfully refreshing, and it may just ward off a wrinkle or two to boot.

Customer Q & A

Q1: I need to pack away our bedroom humidifiers for next winter. How do I make sure the reddish color in the mist window is not mold? Thank you!

A: If you're seeing a red/pinkish ring, it's probably not mold. It's likely a bacteria. This has little to do with the quality but more to do with the surface simply being consistently damp. You have a couple options. You take an old toothbrush and use chlorine/water mix to scrub away the residue. You can also use some Vital Oxide to clean the humidifier. The upside to chlorine is it's cheap and effective. The downside is the odor and that it's corrosive which is why you want to water it down to help prevent pitting of the plastic. The upside to Vital Oxide is that as an EPA certified disinfectant, it also kills bacteria as well as mold and whole host of microbes, and it's not caustic nor does it emit toxic fumes like chlorine. The downside is the cost. Again, either will work. The bacteria itself is harmless, and the reason why I say it has little to do with the actual water is because it's an airborne bacteria, not waterborne. Now, if there is some off chance that what you're seeing is a mold, then either of these solutions will still work. Vital Oxide kills mold. Chlorine kills mold, but you need to make sure that as you wipe the surface, you allow the chlorine to sit for a while before rinsing and drying. Hope that helps!

Q2: Can this humidifier be used in the car? Does it come with a adaptor for the car?

A: It's not well suited for a car simple for the fact that the water bottle is the heaviest part of the humidifier and it's prone to tip really easily if moving or if on an uneven surface. I've not seen an adapter for this model. It does come with the two separate plug attachments for both US use 110v and use in countries where they use 220v.

Air O Swiss 7146 Travel Humidifier Reviews
Air-O-Swiss 7146 Travel Humidifier

The Air-O-Swiss 7146 Ultrasonic Humidifier is one of our few, true travel humidifiers. The unit itself weighs less than 1 pound and would fit into most purses, briefcases or handbags with ease. It is built for use with nearly any of the 16-20 oz. water bottles you see and use every day. Simply screw in the water bottle, plug the unit in, and sit back as the 7146 delivers cool mist humidity. And as long as you have enough water bottles, this unit will put a gallon of water back into the air over a 24 hour period.

The 7146 Travel is an ultrasonic humidifier. The ultrasonic vibrations that actually create the mist work to destroy the cell walls of bacteria and other microbes. This feature makes Air-O-Swiss humidifiers some of the most hygienic on the market today.

What I like about the Air-O-Swiss 7146 Travel Humidifier

Portability is key with this unit. You never have to worry about it not fitting into your bags since this humidifier isn't bulky or large. The Air-O-Swiss 7146 is also super convenient. Since you can use it with nearly any size water bottle, this ultrasonic humidifier can literally go anywhere with you. And, with both European and American style plug adapters, use is not restricted to traditional American 110 V outlets. Traveling abroad? No problem!

While there is not much to this unit, it works well while you are on the go. This small humidifier is compact and even comes with a small travel pouch. When the water bottle runs out, the units shuts itself off and has an empty indicator. The 7146 is nearly silent and uses very little energy. The stabilizing legs are also an important feature. They were a must-use and very helpful feature when I tested it.

What I do not like about the Air-O-Swiss 7146 Travel Humidifier

Obviously, as a small humidifier, the capacity of the Air-O-Swiss 7146 is small. Though over the course of a day it can put up to one full gallon of moisture back into the air.

After testing this model I do recommend that you set the unit somewhere stable where there is little chance of it being knocked over. With such a small profile, the 7146 is not as stable as a traditional humidifier.

In all, the Air-O-Swiss 7146 is a very economical unit that is perfect for allergy or asthma sufferers or people with sinus problems who travel frequently. The unit is extremely compact and is simple to operate. Simply plug in a bottle of water, and you're all set.

Why buy from Customer Testimonials
My son has always had a nagging cough when the weather gets colder, that persists all winter long. The Vornado Humidifier  seems to have helped him feel better, and I don't hear nearly as many late night coughing fits. Thanks!
