This is my new essential oil diffuser. It is made by TaoTronics and holds 300ml water, which is great to save having to refill the tank.
The main features are:-
- Touch sensitive controls
- Soft multi-colour LED ambient lighting
- Timer mode
- Low water protection
- Alarm beeper
Included in the box are :-
- TaoTronics Aroma Diffuser
- Power Adapter
- User Guide
It runs on DC 24V 650mA (14W), the Water Tank Volume is 300ml (10oz).
Working time is 11 hours on Low Misting; 6 hours on High Misting.
It is simple to use :
- Remove the tank cover and lid
- Add up to 300ml water into the water tank
- Add 2-3 drops of essential oil into the water
- Put the lid and cover back on
Once plugged in the device beeps once to indicate it is in standby mode. Ensuring that there is enough water in the tank, press the power button to set the diffuser running. The power button controls the timer and Misting levels by the use of long and/or repeated presses. A small LED indicates the current mode.
An additional feature is the ambient lighting, which automatically cycles through different colours; or it is possible to select a static colour or none at all.
The small instruction booklet is clear and easy to understand, the cautions are explicit and tell the user what to do and what not to do. For example, the device should only be drained from one side to avoid water getting into the unit. This is clearly marked on the unit side so that the user does not forget.
I have had the device 2 weeks now and I have used it most days. I have emptied it and dried it after each use. It is working well and scenting my living room very nicely.
Overall I am pleased with the diffusion and ambient lighting effect. Some people have reported that it is noisy, however I haven’t found it so. The video gives an idea of the humming and ‘plupping’ noise it makes, I had to stop my clock to video this because it’s tick was too loud, so hopefully that gives a more representative idea of the volume.
