Tribest HU1020

The Tribest HU1020 Humidifier, also known as Humio 2 with night lamp & aroma oil compartment, is possibly the best model this company has brought to the market so far. It’s practical yet attractive, and with a humidification capacity for up to 100 sq ft, it is perfect for the average sized bedroom or home office. Up to the minute ultrasound technology gently raises the humidity in any dry environment.

Review Details

With stylish design, the Tribest HU1020 will add a touch of class to any room. It features the latest in LED technology, and comes with 3 shades of red, blue and green to produce a soft light that periodically changes color. It holds up to 0.5 gallons of water, and produces a soft cool mist. The aroma oil compartment will further enhance the relaxing ambience provided by this unit.

The ultrasound technology raises humidity levels to eliminate conditions such as dry, cracked skin, sinus problems and congestion. This humidifier will run constantly for 10 hours without the need to re-fill. And since the Humio 2 doesn’t use any more electric than the average light bulb, this makes it one of the most energy efficient humidifiers on the market.

What We Liked

  • Latest in Ultrasonic Technology
    The ultrasonic technology lends itself to the way the mist is produced, which is light and cooling. The humidifier is also fitted with an electronic control to enter a quiet mode when in use at night.
  • Night Light
    The Humio 2 can be used as a humidifier only, a night light only, or both. The LED gently emits a relaxing glow which can either be fixed in color or set to change at regular intervals.
  • Gently Scented
    The Tribest HU1020 is equipped with a container for essential oils. When the cool mist is released into the air it will gently create an aroma of your choice.
  • Energy Efficient
    Equipped with the latest in energy efficient technology, the HU1020 will use no more power than the average light bulb, even when it’s used both as a light and humidifier.

What We Didn't Like

  • Small Tank
    Since the unit only has a 0.5 gallon tank, it will need to be refilled regularly, especially if it’s used in a bedroom all night.
  • Cheap Feel
    The reservoir itself is made from plastic, as is the base of the unit. The tank doesn’t have any handles and feels like it would break easily. However, since design has been thought about, the overall look is aesthetically pleasing.


There are other products similar to the HU1020 on the market that are cheaper. For example the SPT SU-2550B (see here at Amazon) also doubles as a night light, and costs almost half. However, features such as changing LED, the ability to add essential oils and energy efficiency go well in Tribest’s favor. If you’re looking for better air quality and a certain ambience in any room in the home, the Tribest HU1020 is a good buy.
