The product isn't working, wants to return it.
Arie, South Africa. 16 March 2015
It lasts through the night and keeps my room humid. The plastic it is made from feels like quality.
I am very happy with this product.
Dylan, South Africa. 27 September 2016
Very good and powerful so far. I'm happy with it, no problem.
Luke, South Africa. 12 August 2015
I bought this product and never even lasted 4 months. Highly disappointed! Does it still have a guarantee?
Moosa, South Africa. 20 July 2016
Does what it supposed to. The only brand recommended is Elektra.
MARINA, South Africa. 20 October 2015
OUTSTANDING PRODUCT. I DEFINATELY RECOMMEND THE ELEKTRA.
Dibuseng, South Africa. 14 August 2017
Very helpful, especially to infants, in this our dry weather, no more snoring, ease the breathing. I recommend it, most especially to moms
Jessica, South Africa. 13 November 2015
I ordered this & received it after 3 days. Its working perfectly, very quiet. It helps to put in essential oils. Great product - worth it!

It makes noise
Junaid, South Africa. 12 October 2016
Product works well. The user manual is not very accurate and is limited on instructions. Products spills a lot of water when you move it from one area to the next.
When stable and you finally know how to use it , it works well
Barbara, South Africa. 29 July 2016
Works well, lots of steam (adjustable), warms up the bedroom as well. Like the fact that there is a place where you can put aromatheraphy oil.
Shannon, South Africa. 1 December 2016
It is quite a big unit but it works very well.
David, South Africa. 17 February 2015
Gets very noisy.
Rohan, South Africa. 2 June 2016
I agree with all the positive and negative reviews here.
I almost returned it when I realised you can't put vicks or anything in the water tank itself.
How this Elektra unit works is it takes normal tap water in that grey tank, heats it, and after a few minutes, releases warm steam from the top continuously. The steam is great to increase the ambient temperature of the room, but for full cough-assisting minty steam, you would have to get essential oils (around 5 drops per night should be enough), and place it on top of a concave crevice that sits in the path of the steam.
No websites or videos or anything could tell me this before I bought the product, but it works well, so I'm keeping it.
Agreed as well, the electrodes get dirty after the first use.. can't remember that the instructions say how to remove or clean it either, but I'm sure it should be cleaned regularly, if not after every use.
Yes, and I also noticed the next morning the operating light is still on even there's no water / steam. I guess the no-water shut-off works on trust (lol) and keeps the green light on.
This unit doesn't come with an on-off switch, and when you're trying to empty the tank for storage, there's often about 5ml of water that's almost impossible to drain out.. best to wipe it out with a cloth.
I also have a 3 year old Elektra cool steam humidifier - the one that looks like a frog, no problems with it to date (touch wood), and I also have an Elektra queen-sized electric blanket that is now about 2 years old as well.
Touching more wood (lol, that sounds wrong), and thanking Takealot :)

Good product, works well.
However after the first night it starts to get loud, you may have to tweak with the steam settings to make it slightly quieter.
But, all in all a good product.
Camilla, South Africa. 6 July 2016
Great Product! Does exactly what its meant to. Easy to fill and the larger tank allows for prolonged use.
Adrian, South Africa. 20 May 2014
Doesn't last the full night but then again neither will any of the smaller ones. Electrodes are covered in brown rust/mineral deposits from first use. Does what it says on the tin.
Nico van den Berg, South Africa. 10 February 2016
Great product at a great price works best with out a roof fan turning
Cynthia, South Africa. 14 June 2017
I love it..excellent product. Great for sinuses.
Liat, South Africa. 28 May 2015
Good price and works well
Camilla, South Africa. 28 June 2017
Really great product. Has been the bomb at helping my 4 month old sleep better. Was initially a bit of a plastic smell but has disappeared after a weeks use. i did notice however a bit of build up of some silt looking stuff in the bottom of the bowl when cleaning...which was slightly worrying..but I'm keeping an eye on it. Great in terms of very little noise-one initially burble and then super silent
love it, South Africa. 11 June 2016
love it, description says silent operation,but its quite noisy.
i use my essential oils with it too.
all in all no more sore throat from the heater that is on in my bedroom.
Abigail Miller, South Africa. 12 June 2017
Works well... we must still get oils though to try it out but so far so good.
Ming-Cheau, South Africa. 5 August 2016
Works great so far, I only struggle to lift the top part as instructed, i had to give it a light wiggle to separate the two parts. It's nice and quiet, but randomly has short outburst of bubbling sounds once every few hours (don't be alarmed â€“ my dogs were). Very happy that it lasts throughout the night too. You have to clean it after every "max to min water level" as it gets a bit dirty, brownish water and it doesn't all pour out, so you'll need to use a cloth to get the last bit of water. But it is easy to clean.
Ruaan, South Africa. 5 May 2016
This humidifier works very well, but I have question. Does the boil dry protection mean it is suppose to switch off when the water level gets too low or does it just prevent the unit from burning out. The reason I'm asking is because in the mornings the unit is still on and hot but no steam is coming out(water level too low).
Francois, South Africa. 22 May 2017
Runs quietly. Helps with the highveld winter.
lee, South Africa. 30 September 2017
works well, the problem I have is that the element inside gets rusty and you have to be very careful when moving it around if you don't want to mess water
Kyle, South Africa. 11 May 2016
If you use normal water your device will only function properly for one day. Mineral deposits from tap water collect on the elements and hinder it from heating the water properly. Dis assembling and cleaning the elements with vinegar is required every day which is very tiresome. Using distilled water would fix this issue but that is expensive. The temperature button doesn't seem to have any effect either. Not very impressed with the product at all.
Shikara, South Africa. 2 June 2017
Great product, we got one as the air gets really dry since we have a gas heater. We always add fragrance oils which makes the room smell great. Used it when my husband was sick as well. The only downsides: water leaks a little between the white and grey section. And there is no on/off switch so you have to unplug it from the power supply each time.
Palesa, South Africa. 2 February 2016
I love it

Peter, South Africa. 12 October 2017
Does a good job at humidifying a bedroom, Water gets murky, not sure what is causing that. Super worth it for R400
Device is silent, can be used while the little one is sleeping.
Boiling process kills waterborne bacteria
Steam warms the air, good for cold winter nights.
These are more expensive to operate because of heating element that boils water before releasing it.
Requires daily cleaning. Bacteria thrive in the presence of warm water so warm mist humidifiers can be a breeding ground for germs if not cleaned daily. When the device is not running it will eventually reach perfect temp for germs.

Goeie produk, het myne al vir 6 jaar en werk steeds - doen wat dit moet en kan heel nag aan bly sonder om uit te brand.
Amanda, South Africa. 13 June 2016
Great product with excellent results. Easy to use as well.
Suenay, South Africa. 12 February 2017
My product is working nicely. Great service
Cynthia, South Africa. 12 February 2016
The unit is bigger than it shows in the picture, instructions could be clearer, maybe illustrations on how to open the bell took a while to figure it out, then where to plug n the power source, I eventually got it worked out, not difficult one you know how. The unit works nicely so i'm happy with that
valie, South Africa. 3 May 2016
awesome product great price
Tayla, South Africa. 29 September 2017
It doesn't make much of a difference and it is very hard to clean...
Aneesa, South Africa. 19 December 2016
Big unit, a little messy and also, while it does do the job, im not sure how healthy it is to use this product - there's a lot of rust build up and it is very clunky to clean. And that rust build up ends up on the walls and curtains if you leave it a few days without cleaning. I want to try a cold mist humidifier and hope that's better.
Streicher, South Africa. 7 June 2017
Not that great. The nob to adjust the intensity dos not work. If the watertank is full then its high and if the tanks low its intensity is also.
Tauriq, South Africa. 28 July 2016
Great Product and excellent service
Corl@@ns, South Africa. 8 October 2017
After a couple uses, it gets noisy!
Nabila, South Africa. 9 May 2017
i always looked after this humidifier and made sure to air dry it well.. i even stored the cords well... today i tried using it and it doesn't work anymore... not very good product considering it only lasted 2 years
Lauren, South Africa. 10 July 2015
Delivery was speedy & the product works well. We are very happy with it.
Frank, South Africa. 24 May 2017
Wrong power cable supplied - Not SA standard

Had to return it because of the rust on humidifier element.
sannah j kock, South Africa. 14 June 2015
I have used a humidifier before, not as good a brand and price as this though!
Esti, South Africa. 12 May 2017
Got 3 of them, non working. The element doesn't heat up. Bought no3 from GAME, same problem. Steer clear of this model
Cynthia, South Africa. 19 February 2016
