Aldi Brings Back the Ambiano Rechargeable Cool Mist Humidifier

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links

Every year when winter arrives, I usually end up pulling a small humidifier out of storage. I often run it on my kitchen countertop or set it on a shelf in the living room, or sometimes I run it in a bedroom. I run it especially when we feel like the winter air is drying out our noses, throats, eyes, and skin.

If you’re in the market for a humidifier, Aldi sells quite a variety of them throughout the colder months. I’m actually surprised at how many humidifiers the discount grocer rotates through its middle aisle each year.

The latest humidifier to hit store shelves is a rechargeable one. Aldi also sold this model two years ago and marketed it as a portable humidifier.

What We Know:

Ambiano Rechargeable Cool Mist Humidifier

The Ambiano Rechargeable Cool Mist Humidifier (Product Code: 830417) is an Aldi Find, which means it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store receives one shipment, and after that sells out, it’s gone unless Aldi decides to bring it back later. Aldi does not offer online ordering for this product if it’s sold out at your local store.

This is scheduled to arrive in Aldi stores on January 3rd, 2024.

The Ambiano Rechargeable Cool Mist Humidifier cost $9.99 in January of 2024. That’s $3 less than the $12.99 Aldi sold this for in 2022. That’s also less than most other portable humidifiers on Amazon at the time of writing.

Here’s more information about the Ambiano humidifier, according to Aldi:

  • Product net weight: 0.16 kg / 0.35 lbs.
  • Product size: 2.71 x 2.71 x 6.61 inches
  • Water tank capacity: 300ml
  • Spray volume: 25-40ml/h
  • Timed shutdown: 4 hours/6 hours
  • Battery working time: 1.5-2 hours
  • Includes USB-C cable
  • Rechargeable by USB cord charging or Li-ion battery 800mah
  • Features low-tank indicator with auto shut-off
  • Includes 7-colour LED light
  • Offers easy water fill up
  • Compatible with water-soluble essential oil
  • Includes two mist settings: continuous spray or intermittent spray
  • Includes 5 filter refills

The 2022 model came with a two-year warranty, but Aldi has not yet published information about whether the 2024 model comes with a warranty.

This is sold under the Ambiano brand, which is not a company. Instead, it’s the private label Aldi uses for various home goods.

  1. I got one of these humidifiers last year and it works pretty well. Mine is a short white one, but has the same features as the one shown. Definitely a good buy.

    • Thanks for the info! Did last year’s model come with filters like this year’s model does? Have you needed to buy more filters yet? If so, where do you buy them from? I was thinking about picking up this humidifier at Aldi this week, but I wasn’t sure if I’d have trouble finding additional filters in the future.

  2. I can’t tell if mine is working. It’s not making any sound and it’s just lighting up. There is no mist

    • I purchased one yesterday evening. When I turned it on after charging and pouring water in it, it wasn’t spraying any mist. I kept the water in the humidifier overnight and its working today. May be try keeping the water overnight in the container and try the next day.

    • In my experience, it will not work unless you soak the filter first. I usually fill it, put the filter in the canister to soak, and then after about 30 minutes I re-assemble and put the filter back where it goes, and it seems to work fine.
      If you can’t get it to work at all, don’t be afraid to return it! Aldi is great about returns.

  3. just got one 3 days ago and so far so good…mine came with 4 replacement filters – yay! and you do have to let it sit a bit after filling so the filter can absorb initially [says in the directions a min. of 2 minutes, I waited half an hour before testing]…make sure you do press firmly and hold to turn it on, then once it gets going a quick push will switch it over to the intermittent setting…

  4. I got one a week ago and for some odd reason I don’t know, it turns on by itself. The light show and mist just pops on without anyone looking at it and will several times after I shut it off. I guess it does what it’s supposed to do while it’s on but I don’t feel a difference in my office, where it’s located.

  5. How do I change the filter? Where is the fill line, I don’t see one.

  6. How do you replace filters

  7. Bought one and it’s not worked properly since beginning… Sad because it’s a nice looking product!
