Irony: Darth Vader Humidifier Eases Wheezing Beth Snyder January 19, 2016 Extras When I was a kid, my mother was convinced that a liberal application of Vick’s rub on my chest, a steady supply of Vernor’s ginger ale (no other brand will do), and running a humidifier next to my bed could cure any ills. Now that I’m a grownup I tend more toward actual cold medicines, but I still swear by Vernor’s and a humidifier. Mine is blue and boring. The Darth Vader Humidifier is neither, and I want one! Maybe it’s because I’m currently suffering from a cold; maybe it’s because I recently got to see Jeff Dunham (who travels with humidifiers for his voice, which here were a SpongeBob and Hello Kitty shape), but when I saw this Darth Vader Humidifier I reached for my wallet almost without thinking about it. Then I saw how much it costs, and sadly went without. I have one that works, and at this point $99.95 US is a little spendy for my blood. But it’s on the list! The Darth Vader Humidifier works just like all the others, really. Fill the half-gallon tank with water, choose which of 10 different moisture settings you prefer, and prepare to breathe easy. Which makes me giggle, since Darth’s breathing is of course notoriously labored. He has an AC plug, and can humidify your room for up to 12 hours. In case you forget, he also has an auto-shutoff. And because in the end he wasn’t really completely dedicated to the Dark Side, he even has an integrated night light. No worries about him taking up too much room, either. This is a table top version, measuring 10 3/4″ H x 11″ W x 11 1/2″ D, and weighs only three pounds. Since I started writing this post, I looked online, and other versions can be had for as low as $59.99 US if you shop around. I suspect I’m going to own one soon.
