Useless for steam therapy to hydrate nasal passages

Summary: I was aware when purchasing this that it was not electric. I still expected hot water to produce SOME steam to help hydrate my nasal passages....because they called it, you know, STEAM THERAPY. You won't get any steam out of this, so if you're a singer like me looking for the hydration, skip this one. I've been told if you're using it for congestion and using it as directed, it has better benefits, but that was not my reason for purchasing this.
Summary: So I came here to write a bad review, but after reading some positive ones, I decided to give it a second chance. Initially I thought I had been ripped off, but really, I only spent like 8 bucks on it. I should have read further into it before I bought it, but whatever. My first mistake was thinking that it was electric. Folks, it's not. I saw that it didn't have a chord but I figured it was just battery powered.
Summary: Do not follow the picture on the box. You will get best results from putting the vaporizer directly over you nose and mouth and breath in deeply. The pad lasts a long time. You can reheat it in the microwave and keep cupping it over your nose and mouth.
Summary: I got this on a whim because I couldn't breath through my nose. I have a steamer meant for unclogging pores that I could have used but it requires being plugged in and a flat surface to set it on. I saw that this one was portable and not terribly expensive, so I bought it. It did nothing at all. I was skeptical because I saw that there were no batteries, but I figured I'd give it a go. I set it up per the directions.
Summary: My husband and I have had the flu for a couple days now. It has been dreadful! I was walking around on my local Walmart and found this baby (I know I didn't buy from amazon but its the same thing). To really gain the effects of this item is to tweak the directions a bit. 1.) Instead of using plain tap hot water, run your water through a coffee maker to make your water not boiling hot, but hotter than tap. 2.
Summary: I had bronchitis for the first time when I bought this. I even went to the E/R I was in such bad shape about it. After getting on a mix of meds and taking things easier, I found this product and it really really helps! I carried this baby with me 24/7, and I was able to work during busy season with bronchitis until it finally went away. Nothing else really seemed to ease that feeling and kept me from having major coughing attacks.
