I tested out the URPOWER essential oil diffuser because I like to test out new diffusers.
I was interested in this diffuser because I needed a diffuser that can cover my living room. There are a lot of aromatherapy diffusers to choose from. It makes it really hard to pick which diffuser you should go with.
So, I found this diffuser on Amazon because it’s an “Amazon’s Choice” diffuser. There are nearly 10,000 positive reviews on it and I want to write up an honest review of their diffuser.
So, about 3 months ago I went ahead and purchased it. I will let you know any and everything about the URPOWER 500 ml essential oil diffuser in this full review. Then you can decide whether or not you want to purchase it.
The Good About This Essential Oil Diffuser
- Good For Big Rooms.
- Has A 60, 120, 180 minutes timer.
- High/Low Mist Output.
- Changes Colors.
- Comes With A Measuring Cup.
- Is A Humidifier.
- Great Price (Under $25).
The Bad About This Essential Oil Diffuser
- No Intermittent Mode.
How Do You Use It?
The URPOWER essential oil diffuser is very simple to use. Meaning, unlike the InnoGear 150 ml diffuser that I reviewed you don’t have to take out an insert out to fill it up. Instead, you just twist the casing counterclockwise and then put water and drops of essential oils in. Of course, you need to put the plastic case on before using it.
Just like most electronic diffusers, it uses a standard plugin which you connect at the bottom and then into an outlet.
You can then spin the top any way you want and it will spray the mist in any direction you want.
There are three buttons located at the base of the diffuser.
The first button will control the lighting. The first time you push the button it will cycle throughout the different colors. If you push it again you can manually cycle through the different colors. The following colors are listed down below:
Obviously, if you don’t want to use the light you don’t have to.
The next button allows you to control the amount of mist that comes out of the diffuser. You can either set it to high or low.
The next button is a timer button. It’s labeled as the “mist” button. It turns the mist on with your diffuser. You can push it depending on how long you want the URPOWER diffuser to stay on. You can have the timer set for 60, 120, 180, and indefinitely. If you want to have the diffuser stay on indefinitely it will stay on until the diffuser runs completely out of the water. It has an auto shut off feature to preserve it from staying on when you’re out of water.
How Long Does It Last With Water In It?
There are a lot of electronic diffusers on the market. Chances are if you’re purchasing a 500 ml one you don’t want to have to fill it up every couple hours. The bigger the tank the less you have to fill it up.
There is a max level line which I wouldn’t suggest filling over it. Otherwise, it will not work correctly. Their container is marked with a 500, 400, 300, 200, and 100 mL line.
The URPOWER diffuser will last for 10 hours of continuous use. If you fill it to the 500 ml line. I have actually tested it out for myself and found out it last about 11-12 hours, though.
How Do You Clean It?
The URPOWER 500 ml diffuser does come with a manual. So, I am not going to bore you to death and read it word for word for you. But, it’s recommended that you clean it every 3-5 uses. I like to use citric acid and let it sit for about 5 – 15 minutes. Then, you gently scrub it with a cotton ball, wash rag, paper towel, etc.
You can find citric acid in most grocery stores. But, I found it pretty cheap on Amazon, which saves you the hassle of searching for it at the grocery store.
Does It Make A Lot of Noise?
The URPOWER essential oil diffuser isn’t very loud at all. Some diffusers that I have owned in the past are kind of loud. However, this isn’t the case with this one.
How Big of An Area Does It Cover?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions with this diffuser. In the past, I have used an InnoGear 150 ml diffuser for small rooms. While that diffuser is great this one covers a lot bigger.
The URPOWER essential oil diffuser covers 430 Sq ft. It’s also a humidifier and will cover 269 Sq ft. I have used it in my living room, kitchen, office, etc. and I’m very happy with the amount of coverage from this diffuser.
Warranty & Refund Policy
While it isn’t so transparent on their website at http://www.urpower.net/ and through their Amazon product listing URPOWER does have a 45-day money-back policy and will replace your product in case it breaks for up to a year. I found this information from an article on Business Insider.
Do I recommend this URPOWER Essential Oil Diffuser? Yes! It’s an excellent diffuser for a large room. Did I mention that it’s below $25? It super easy to use. You only have to lift the top off and add water and essential oils and you are good to go. I use it almost every day and certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap, reliable, and diffuser than can cover larger rooms.
It does have a high/low setting where you can control the mist. You can easily spin it around to direct where you want the mist to point. This diffuser by URPOWER has a timer and you can use it as a humidifier, too.
It last for 11-12 hours, comes with a measuring cup, and the warranty is good for 12 months.
The only drawback I can think to mention is there isn’t an intermittent mode.
Again, it’s an awesome electronic diffuser and I highly recommend it to everyone.
