GENIANI Portable Small Cool Mist Humidifiers

No matter the problem you hope to solve, there is almost always a gadget at the ready to help make your issue one of the past. But it's common for home appliances that solve even the smallest of problems to take up quite a bit of room. One issue that affects many people during the winter is dry air, and it's often even more of a nuisance while sleeping. That's why Amazon shoppers are drawn to this portable humidifier that many say is small enough to fit on a nightstand.

The Geniani Erie Humidifier is a portable cool mist humidifier with more than 20,600 five-star ratings on Amazon. Its sleek design is equipped to hold just over one cup of water, but don't let the smaller size (it weighs just over half a pound and can even fit in a car's cup holder) fool you—that's enough to keep the humidifier running for up to eight hours.

"​​This works really well in our bedroom, and the footprint is just small enough to sit on our smaller nightstands without being too cumbersome," wrote one of the humidifier's 7,400 five-star reviewers. "Great capacity; [it] lasts a long time with minimal noise… And the press-and-hold feature to turn off the lights, regardless of setting, actually makes it superior [to] all other devices of its kind."

The humidifier is easy to use, since it's powered by a USB cord and can be controlled via a single button. The cool mist gadget also has dual mist modes (continuous and intermittent) that are "able to change the environmental humidity in minutes," according to the brand, as well as an automatic shut-off feature for safety reasons.

"Love this humidifier! It's the perfect size for small spots: great for a desk, nightstand, end table, etc.," added another shopper, who echoed the ease of using a single button to control the device. "It's very simple to use: Just fill the base, place the top on, and plug in the included power cord. Push the button once for a continuous mist, a second push will give you an intermittent mist, and a third push will shut the device off." They added, "Overall, I'm very happy with this humidifier!"

Embrace the portability of the Geniani humidifier and use it anywhere throughout your home or office during the day, or simply keep it in the bedroom to prevent dry air while you sleep. Shop it at Amazon in white, black, or gray for under $30.
