Whisper silent yet really effective!
This item arrived in a strong, protective, brown cardboard box. Inside the box were the humidifier unit itself, a spare wick, an instruction manual, a flat USB cable, and a cup matching the humidifier unit.
The humidifier is sort of water lily shaped, and it can sit in any container with water in, such as a cup or vase, as long as the top isn’t submerged. The wick draws in water through the side of the “stalk”, and the tiny piezo pulsing unit at the top sends out the moisture in cool misty clouds.
