8. ZAQ Mini II Travel Litemist

The ZAQ Mini II Travel Litemist is a compact, low-cost oil diffuser that can be run with either a DC current for use in a car or via four AA batteries. It can't be powered with a standard outlet, however, which is rather limiting.
  • good for hotel or dorm room
  • cleans easily with water alone
  • burns through batteries quickly

7. InnoGear Refresher

  • auto shutoff when water level drops
  • helps alleviate cold symptoms
  • small capacity reservoir
