Review: I was so excited about getting the Morpilot Portable USB Mini Humidifier. I get sinus infections fairly often and nosebleeds when the air is too dry. When I got the chance to review this product, it seemed perfect for me.

I quickly found out that this product may not have been thought through all the way. It is very small, only about 6 inches tall. So, obviously it can go just about anywhere. The instructions said it can be used with the small tube that came with it, a bottle of water, or a regular cup of water. The top is a big, heavy circle that apparently contains the motor. The motor sucks the water from the container and creates a mist that puts moisture into the air.

Pretty great right? Not exactly. The Morpilot Portable USB Mini Humidifier is so top-heavy that it has fallen over almost every single time I have attempted to test it. Luckily, the container provided with the mini humidifier doesn’t hold much water so the first couple of times it didn’t make a huge mess.

However, I thought maybe it would work better with a full cup of water, you know to counter balance the weight from the product. Not a bright idea. An even bigger mess was made when I sat at my desk to do my schoolwork because the slight shaking from me erasing a math mistake knocked it over again. With these results, I decided not to test it in a bottle of water for fear of another disaster. I can knock over a water bottle without the help of a top-heavy device sticking out of it.

I must say that the Morpilot Portable USB Mini Humidifier works, but it severely needs some design upgrades. I’d also like to mention that the power cord provided by the company is rather short. I’m a little worried about the safety of this product. With its record of knocking over water, I wouldn’t imagine it is safe to keep it close to the power outlet or computer that is powering it.

I’m very disappointed in this product. I couldn’t recommend the Morpilot Portable USB Mini Humidifier to anyone because of the negative experience I had.
