Vicks V745A

Vicks has long been a trusted name for cold and flu remedies, and they don’t disappoint with their latest warm mist humidifier.

When you buy this unit, you will also get a medicine cup for a soothing and medicated vapor, alleviating even the most uncomfortable of respiratory symptoms.

Review Details

With the Vicks V745A humidifier, you can expect a tank capacity of 1 gallon which will run for 12 hours without the need to refill. The unit works silently at the background, which means it is perfect for rooms that need to be quiet.

In addition to the medicine cup, the unit helps remove impurities and harmful bacteria by boiling the water, further enhancing the quality of air you breathe. In addition to the benefits above, this humidifier also comes with an in-built night light, making it perfect for a child’s bedroom.

What We Liked

  • Advanced Warm Mist Gratification
    Mixed with the ability to provide an instant warm mist, the medicated vapor of this model will instantly improve the symptoms of cold, flu and/or seasonal allergies.
  • Superb Water Capacity
    The Vicks warm mist humidifier has a 1 gallon tank with a running time of 12 hours, making it perfect for overnight operation.
  • Clean Air
    After boiling the water (making it free of 90-100% of airborne bacteria), this unit will then mix with dry air in the cooling chamber. As a result, the air you breathe is clean and comfortable.
  • Soothing Night Light
    For those that have young children, this Vicks warm mist humidifier also has an in-built soothing night light.

What We Didn't Like

  • Requires Regular Maintenance
    It is possible to use tap water in this unit, but it can cause a build-up of minerals in the heating chamber. A clean of at least twice per week is recommended. However, Vicks has made some of the parts dishwasher friendly to make this process easier.
  • Noise
    There have been complaints that the unit does make some noise. However, this is limited to a low gurgle sound which some people find therapeutic and others find annoying.


The Vicks V745A warm mist humidifier is excellent value for money. It can be used for both gentle humidification and medicated air, which makes it perfect for people that are sick or suffer allergies. Its aesthetic design and in-built night light further adds to the whole ambience of this product. Its relatively quiet operation and 12 hour running time means it will happily keep the atmosphere in a bedroom clean and comfortable.
