Ultrasonic Vaporiser OR Aroma Bloom: Understanding Differences and Similarities May 27, 2014 By Shelley Mason comments I'm often asked the difference between the Aroma Bloom and the Ultrasonic Vaporiser so I thought I'd write a little blog post to show you the difference The Ultrasonic Vaporiser: Which One's Better First up, let’s talk about the Ultrasonic Vaporiser. The Ultrasonic Vaporiser comes in blue, pink, and white. Some say it's a dream come true. The Ultrasonic Vaporiser acts as an air purifier, an ioniser, an aroma diffuser and a night lamp. So, there's no more condensation because there's no heating element. The Ultrasonic wave technology works on the vibration of the water at such a speed that the water vapors are dispersed into the atmosphere to add moisture to the environment. What this means, basically, is that there is cool air coming out of the system and not hot air like in the older fashioned humidifiers. So, there is no condensation on the wall, no dripping wet windows, no mould, no bacteria forming on furnishings. This is especially important in a nursery where mould can get into the lungs and cause allergies. The Ultrasonic Vaporiser has 6 lighting colours that can rotate or be set on the one colour or be switched off. So, with the night lighting function, it can have up to 6 different colours. The unit is quiet, compact and really attractive to have in the nursery or the children's bedroom or your own bedroom. The little nozzle at the top of the ultrasonic vaporiser can be turned and this allows you to choose the direction in which you want the cool air to come out at. To fill up the ultrasonic vaporiser is really simple. You need to remove the clear lid at the top and fill it till the fill line. Don't exceed past the max fill line. There are automatic safety features that ensure that the vaporiser switches off when the water has finished. So you can basically go about your day and not be concerned about it. Of course, we do recommend that you check the water level before you go to bed at night. The ultrasonic vaporiser lasts for around 8 hours on full heat. It has the feature that allows you t to choose the strength of the air flow coming out of the system which is something that the Aroma Bloom doesn’t have. So you can put it at low up to high. It also has an intermittent feature which basically means that it can turn it self on and off at regular intervals. The diffuser has basically this vapour produced by ultrasonic wave and again, there is no heating allowed. Both the vaporisers are safe for children. Both the Aroma Bloom and vaporiser are ionizers that remove harmful substances that contribute to allergies. There is no smoke produced only a cool water mist which hydrates the skin and again, doesn't leave the windows and furnishing wet or with condensation. The Aroma Bloom: Features and Comparison The Aroma Bloom is the latest vaporiser to be added to our range. It is extremely stylish, with bright beautiful colours. It is the same as the ultrasonic vaporiser in then sense that it is also an aroma diffuser, an ioniser, a humidifier and a night light. The difference between the two night lights is that the Bloom’s light is very calm and simulated to one’s breathing so, it goes in and out. The Aroma Bloom uses a white LED light and you can change the light intensity but you can't change the colour like you can with the ultrasonic vaporiser. The Bloom comes in 3 colours- Fuschia, Lime and Charcoal. It's size is 15cm x24 cm so it is a higher unit but in the shape of a vase. The water load is 200mls and operates at 2.4mhz/sec which is stronger than the ultrasonic vaporiser. The Bloom does not have the ability to go from low to high intensity so it stays at a high intensity of 2.4 mhz/sec and operates up to 10 hours of continual mist mode and up to 12-14 hours in the intermittent range. Both offer a continual and intermittent option. The Bloom, however, has a longer time span of working without needing a refill and this is really great feature for people who're concerned about the timeline and having the vaporiser working through the night. Both carry a 12-month warranty. Basically, the main difference between the 2 items is that the ultrasonic vaporiser has a low to high mist feature while the Bloom has one high setting only. Both have an intermittent on-off, on-off feature which extends the timeline of the mist working. Both have a nightlight though the ultrasonic vaporiser really does work like a night light. You have different colours to choose from, the bloom doesn’t have. You basically get a low, medium or high or the breathing simulation which is really relaxing. The other difference being that the motor in the Bloom is stronger. The ultrasonic vaporiser is a lower Hz than the Bloom. Both use electricity. Both are the same price point. There are obvious differences in the look and design of the systems. Both have the safety feature that once the water runs out, the system automatically turns itself off. Both are excellent systems and we've used both at Lime Tree Kids and have sold numerous units.
