AOS 7146 Travel Humidifier

The Air-O-Swiss AOS 7146 Humidifier has been specifically designed for people who travel and suffer from conditions due to poor quality air. The beauty of this unit is it's completely portable, making it perfect for people who are concerned about the quality of air in hotel rooms. It’s also designed to be quiet, which means it can be used in the office without disturbing other people.

Review Details

The well-being of people who travel and/or work in unhealthy environments is what has been thought about with the design of the AOS 7146. Utilizing up to the minute ultrasonic technology, the unit produces a cool, soothing and light mist.

All you need with the AOS 7146 is an electrical power outlet and a standard water bottle that fits on to the base. It comes complete with an AC adaptor allowing for exchangeable plugs. This means your unit can be used in both America and Europe, making it perfect for the discerning travel.
It will also fit neatly into any type of hand luggage and weighs less than 1lb, eliminating the worry of excess baggage charges at the airport.

What We Liked

  • Minimal Noise
    The ultrasonic technology used with the AOS 7146 allows whisper quiet operation, making it perfect for use during sleep.
  • Simple to Use
    All this humidifier needs is a 17 ounce bottle of water that’s attached to the base. Once the base is full, the unit has a handy blue indicator to tell you it’s ready, and you can switch it on for instant dry air relief.
  • Easily Transported
    Weighing less than 1lb, your Air-O-Swiss 7146 will easily fit into your luggage. For ease of transportation, it comes complete with a useful carry-case.
  • Controlled Output
    The AOS 7146 is equipped with a practical control knob so you can easily control the amount of cool mist it produces.

What We Didn't Like

  • Bottle Neck Adaptor
    Care should be taken when attaching the water bottle, as the adaptor is quite a tight fit.
  • Possible Tip Issue
    When the unit is fitted with a full bottle of water, there is a risk it can tip. However, it does come fitted with fold out feet to help prevent this from happening.


Considering the ease with which the AOS 7146 can be transported and how lightweight the unit is, Air O Swiss has done a very good job of incorporating the latest ultrasound technology. It’s highly effective at preventing dry skin conditions and the price tag is incredibly competitive compared to similar models on the market. Warning lights for both empty and full containers, and automatic shut-off (when empty) comes in very handy as well for travel humidifiers.
