Modern, sleek, and compact design
While humidification performance is essential, aesthetical value is also important when choosing a humidifier.
Personally, I like the design of this Levoit 200s humidifier very much. The combination of a semi-transparent water tank and a white base is so simple and sleek that it can blend seamlessly with any decor. You no longer have to worry about color matching.
With a size of 11.8″H x 7.1″W x 7.1″D, its footprint is small, allowing you to put it on any table you want. Even better, based on our observations, it will not get everything wet.
In front of the base, there is a small rounded display with two buttons on either side – one for power and the other for mist level. If you don’t want to explore other functions, you can simply use the mist level button to switch between low, high, and auto settings.
The display will show you the humidity level, mist level, no water indicator (red), and if it is connected to the APP. The light of the display can be turned off through your mobile phone.
It is worth mentioning that this model doesn’t come with a nightlight.
Levoit dual 200s can be controlled by an APP
The dual 200s is a smart humidifier, even if it comes with a low price tag.
Levoit has developed an APP for controlling their products called VeSync.Once you connect this 200s humidifier to it, you can turn it on/off and choose the mist mode via your phone.
In addition to that, you can set the target humidity level from 30% to 80% in auto mode and create a schedule or timer.
After trying out various smart products, we found that not every APP is easy to use. But this VeSync app is well-developed, and you can get the hang of it quickly.
However, throughout our test, we found that the reading of the humidistat is not so accurate. Sometimes it would be a bit higher or lower. You can’t expect it to maintain the humidity level at a specific number you want.
This model is also compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant.
Top-fill design – we love it!
Changing the water every day is recommended to prevent mold and bacteria growth, even though many people don’t follow the instructions.
But anyway, refilling the water is something you have to do often when running a humidifier.
While putting the water tank upside down and filling the water is not a big deal, having a humidifier that can fill from the top can save you a lot of effort in the long run.
By removing the big water tank cover, you can directly add water to this humidifier. Just ensure the water doesn’t get into the mist tube in the middle.
We have put it in our list of the best top-fill humidifiers!
You can add essential oil to the base chamber
In most cases, you can’t put essential oil in a humidifier. But you can do it with this Levoit humidifier.
As per our experience, most humidifiers that claim to have a diffusion feature will have an oil tray, but you can directly add essential oil to the base with this 200s model. Another model we found that has the same function is the Homech HM-AH004 humidifier.
It works just as well as a standard diffuser. But we recommend you clean it more frequently in this case.
Our performance test
Although this Levoit dual 200s has many great features, we still have to examine its performance. Overall, it is a good humidifier for small to medium rooms.
We use a scale to measure the weight difference of the humidifier before and after one hour so as to calculate the output of this Levoit 200s in high mode.
After calculating, we’ve determined that this model has an output of 147ml, which places it in the middle range among all the humidifiers we’ve tested. Since the water capacity is 3L, it can continue to work for 20 hours in high mode.
We also put it in our test room which is 15m² (160 sq. ft), to assess the humidification performance by using a smart hygrometer from Govee.
As you can see, the humidity increased from 42% to 49.6% in our hour. You can see it does make some difference quickly in a small room. It is not as powerful as some powerful ones, such as Vorndao EVDC500, but it is powerful enough for small to middle-sized rooms. It could be a suitable humidifier for cough relief in small spaces.
Noise level (0.5m away from the humidifier)
As you know, ultrasonic humidifiers usually make less noise than evaporative humidifiers. This Levoit will not let you down, either.
We recorded the noise level in high and low modes, and the following is our result.
Whatever mode you choose, its operation will not disturb you.
For the initial setup, all you need is to remove all packaging, rinse all the parts, find a flat location, fill the water, and connect it to the power source.
It comes with an extra water filter and a small brush for cleaning.
To prevent any bad smell in a humidifier, we recommend emptying the tank and base chamber daily and cleaning every part once a week.
If possible, use distilled water or purified water. Otherwise, you must clean the mineral deposit in the tank and base more frequently. You may also see the white duct coming out from it.
Note that the water filter of this Levoit humidifier is different from the filter in evaporative humidifiers. It is located on the button of the water tank and is easier to get cleaned.
By the way, the price of the filter replacement is much lower than the wicks in the evaporative models. Buy on Amazon
Like most Levoit humidifiers, this 200s model has a 2-year warranty. Their customer service is responsive.
Who should buy this humidifier?

I would recommend the Levoit dual 200s if you’re looking for the following features in a cool mist ultrasonic humidifier:
Want a humidifier for a small or middle-sized room: Keep in mind that the output of this humidifier is 147ml (according to our test), making it not a suitable option for large rooms. The recommended coverage is 290 sq. ft., and this model works great in our test room (160 sq. ft).

Want to fill the water from the top: Once you decide to use a humidifier, you need to refill it frequently. This 200s model has a big top cover to fill the water from the top. It can save you a lot of effort.
