  • Product Overview

    Did you know that some portable humidifiers can deliver more harm than help to your indoor air quality? That's because many systems can produce harmful water-bred microorganisms within their water reservoirs. During humidification, these organisms are dispersed into your environment along with the moisturized air. That's bad news for anyone living and breathing in your household. Fortunately, Vicks has put a stop to this problem with the Vicks V790 Germ-Free Warm Mist Humidifier.

    This 2-gallon room humidifier – also known as the Vicks V790N Humidifier – delivers comfortably moisturized and sanitized air to your indoor environment. Using patented ultraviolet (UV) sanitizing technology, the humidifier kills up to 99.999% of germs, viruses, bacteria, mold, and fungus before releasing a blanket of fine, invisible mist into the air. As a result, you breathe only clean, pure, and healthful moisture.

    Two-Step Sanitizing Process

    The Vicks V790 Germ Free Humidifier eliminates water-bred microorganisms using a two-step process. During the first step, a germ-zapping UV bulb shines on the water as it passes from the cold water reservoir to the hot water reservoir through a special glass chamber. Next, water moves into the stainless steel hot water reservoir where it is sterilized even more through boiling action. Warm, invisible mist is then distributed throughout your space.

    Effective for Allergy- and Asthma-Sufferers

    As an added benefit, this Vicks UV humidifier does not emit any symptom-aggravating white dust during operation. This makes the filter-free V790 safe for use by allergy- and asthma-sufferers. In many off-the-shelf humidifiers, dust particles can form when mineral matter from the water is released into the air during humidification. Regular exposure to this airborne dust can aggravate existing symptoms and trigger serious respiratory conditions. The Vicks V790 Warm Mist Humidifier stops white dust by pulling out mineral deposits during the boiling process to prevent the minerals from being released.

    Simple, Straightforward Operation

    The Vicks V790 UV humidifier includes easy-to-use control features for simple and hassle-free operation. Use the manual control knob to increase or decrease the humidity output. The power and refill indicator lights keep you updated on the operating status of the humidifier and will let you know when it's time to refill the water tanks. The system's easy-fill dual reservoir tanks – each with a one-gallon capacity – ensure a long running time of up to 24 hours before the next refill.

    In addition, this Vicks humidifier features an optional medicine cup for use when adding Vicks VapoSteam or Kaz Steam Inhalant to the moisture output.

    Additional Features

    Other features of the Vicks V790 room humidifier include:

    • Automatic Shutoff – For safety, the humidifier's heating element will shut off when the water falls below the level of the float switch. The system will also shut off when your desired humidity level is reached.
    • Optional Mineral Absorption Pad – Helps to decrease mineral build-up inside the system's water tanks.
    • Polarized Plug – This Vicks humidifier uses a polarized plug to reduce the risk of electric shock.
    • Soft-Grip Handles – The unit's dual water tanks feature soft-grip handles for easy lifting and refilling.
    • Long-Life UV Bulb – The UV bulb lasts up to 2,000 hours.
    • Replacement UV Bulb Type – 3.5 Watts

    Mine is 3' away from my bed and is a little noisy. Also, I have to cover the blue indicator light so it doesn't interfere with my sleep.
