The cool mist humidifier stick is compact, easy to use, and very inexpensive. Because water doesn’t go into a humidifier tank and you can just use a cup or bottle of water, maintenance is low and you can take this device with you while traveling.
It only covers a small amount of space and is recommended for spaces up to 20 square feet. It won’t make a large difference in a bedroom unless the device is really close to you.
If you want a low cost humidifier for a small space or to take with you while traveling, this is a wonderful option. It comes with a one year warranty, so unlike many other small humidifiers, you are protected for a long time if this ends up having any issues.

The Cool Mist Humidifier Stick V2 by Deneve is a very simple humidifier to use. The humidifier includes an instruction booklet, an additional filter, and an extra long USB to micro USB charging cable. The Cool Mist Humidifier Stick V2 is about 6 inches long, lightweight, and portable. You can plug it into any USB charger including the USB slot of your computer, a USB wall charger, or a portable USB charger.
First you take the humidifier apart and remove the wick, to let it soak for 5 minutes. The humidifier just twists off, so it’s very easy to remove the wick inside and replace or soak it. Then you take the wick, place it back in the humidifier, and put it back together. It’s simple and takes less than a minute to attach.
Then you take a glass, place the humidifier stick inside, fill up the glass with water so that it doesn’t touch the top of the stick or the USB charging space, and turn the humidifier on. Within minutes, water vapor will appear and if there’s enough water available in the glass then the humidifier will stay on for a whole 8 hours before automatically shutting off.
Cleaning Your Cool Mist Humidifier Stick V2 By Deneve
Once a week, you should clean the humidifier by soaking the stalk in a solution of 10 parts water and 1 part bleach. Then rinse the humidifier off with a damp cloth and allow it to dry. It’s suggested that you replace the wick every three months. Currently, Deneve isn’t selling replacement wicks online, however they plan to make some available soon. The replacement packs will cost somewhere around $8.
Overall if you need a portable humidifier because you travel, or want to use it in your car or at work, this is a great model to use. It’s easy to maintain, very inexpensive, and comes with a one year warranty against any defects. It’s one of the best humidifiers available under $25, and is often a bestselling item.
