Hey Esther,

Sorry to hear about your crane humidifier. Unfortunately, humidifiers won’t last forever and will need to be replaced eventually.

Great decision to go with an ultrasonic again, they’re perfect for bedrooms! The Levoit LV600HH is in fact, an ultrasonic humidifier, it will function in the same way as your previous Crane model. The Levoit is also a hybrid model that produces both cool mist and warm mist, so you get the best of both worlds, but it still uses ultrasonic humidification to create both mists.

I can’t guarantee that it will last longer than the Crane Drop model but it does come with a 2-year warranty, and regular maintenance will certainly prolong its lifespan.

Hope that helps!

Comment on Best Large Room Humidifier Reviews in 2018: Top Ultrasonic & Evaporative Models by Esther https://www.weatherstationadvisor.com/best-large-room-humidifier-reviews/#comment-839 Sun, 04 Nov 2018 16:31:08 +0000 https://www.weatherstationadvisor.com/?p=2448#comment-839

I have had a Crane Drop ultrasonic humidifier for about 2 years, no problems. Before I put it away for the summer, I cleaned and dried it out completely. My neighbor just borrowed it for her kids with colds and promptly gave it back to me, saying it didn’t work. I followed the directions in the manual for “red light indicator comes on” and it hasn’t helped. So now I’m in the market for a new, hopefully more durable ultrasonic humidifier for the bedroom. I like ultrasonic ones because they are quiet and I feel they are more hygienic than cool mist evaporative types. I find the reviews on the Levoit LV600HH confusing; is it an ultrasonic humidifier or what? Is it worth the money if you want to use it as an ultrasonic humidifier and not a cool mist one? With proper maintenance, would it last longer than ones like the Crane Drop model?

I have been using Cumulus,Weatherlink,VWS and Weather display for the last 10 year and the best in my opinion is Weatherlink,VWS and weather display.Cumulus is also a good software but way to complicated when one need to adjust the Rain month and Rain year.

Comment on Ambient Weather WS-2902 Review: Osprey WiFi 10-in-1 Weather Station by Rich Hall https://www.weatherstationadvisor.com/ambient-weather-ws-2902-review/#comment-331 Sun, 20 May 2018 07:29:01 +0000 https://www.weatherstationadvisor.com/?p=1986#comment-331

Couple of observations here…. As a 2902 owner, I love mine. Couple of pieces of advice to those looking to mount their stations higher up. I use the side mount and have mounted it to my deck railing. Making sure the station is level is critical to the gauge treading rain properly. Ambient Weather sells pole extensions for many of their mounts. Suggestion, level the unit BEFORE lifting it skyward. Unless you can fly, reading the level is impossible thirty feet in the air. These mounts do allow inserting from the bottom. Lock the station to the mounting pole and level it. Also note the north arrow. Align that by turning the pole, not the unit. To raise unit, loosen pole at deck level, insert pole in bottom and push up. Lock down pole where it reaches the height you wish. The station should remain level if poles are merged properly.

Good review, about the only thing you didn’t mention is the 2902 works with the ObserverIP, which opens it up to the wider works of reporting to CWOP and a ton more sites via a a weatherbridge/Meteobridge solution.

One important item, not mentioned in your weather radio reviews, is the auto cut off at the end of a SAME message. The Sangean CL-100 does, in fact, have electronic circuitry that automatically shuts off the radio at the message end while none of the Midlands have this feature. Instead, the Midlands continue on for a timed period that approximates several minutes before shutdown. This feature defect in the Midlands is very irritating late at night when you are trying to get back to sleep! The auto cut off feature of the Sangean CL-100 should make it the #1 Weather radio rather than any of the Midlands. (my opinion)

This review is well done; matches up to my experience with portable models. Have used an ETON FRX5 and now a Midland ER310. We live in an area with spotty radio reception, and the Midland excels in picking up signal.

The ER310 flashlight lasts a long time; I use it as my primary flashlight when doing farm chores at night. I’ve left it out for days of rain multiple times. If the speaker gets too wet, sound quality suffers, but it bounces back quickly once dry.

Have dropped both of these models on concrete/gravel multiple times from waist height. No damage from that, so both are shock resistant.

Again, thanks for this thorough review. I really like this tool.
