Beginning with the physical appearance of the Levoit Classic 300S Ultrasonic Smart Humidifier, you will observe that it is a very beautiful humidifier. It will compliment any interior decor wherever the humidifier is placed. Then, in terms of its build, it is crafted with durable ABS plastic that gives it sturdiness and the humidifier is lightweight at 4.3 lb/2 Kg.

One of the most outstanding physical features of the Levoit Classic 300S is its large 1.58 gal / 6 L capacity water tank. This enables the humidifier to operate for longer periods without frequent refills, especially at night when you do need to have a sustained and good sleep. Also, the transparent design of the water tank allows easy monitoring of the water level. Then also, this is a top-fill water tank, with its cover on top, housing a nozzle that you can rotate 360°. Within the water tank, you will observe the Dust Cover, Mist Tube, Water Filter, Tank Handles, and Maximum Water Line. As you may be well aware, it is important for you to use distilled water in your humidifier so as to avoid mineral buildup which over time damages the humidifier. It is also worth mentioning that you cannot pour essential oils directly into the water tank.

Moving to the base of the Levoit Classic 300S, when you lift up the water tank, you find the operating components of the humidifier. Notable amongst them is the Night Light. This gives you a beautiful view of the water tank at night, and depending on your preferences for this, you can turn it ON or OFF as needed.

Moving to the front of the Levoit Classic 300S Ultrasonic Smart Humidifier, you have a nice digital display with soft touch buttons on both sides. Now, on the left-hand side of the digital display, the first button you have at the top is the Sleep Mode Button. Below this, you have the Night Light Button, and to the right-hand side, you have the Mist Level Button at the top, and the Power Button below. Then, to the back of the Levoit Classic 300S, you find an Aroma Box where you can add your essential oils.

Speaking of the entire Levoit Classic 300S Ultrasonic Smart Humidifier package, you will receive the humidifier itself, 3 Aroma Pads with one already installed, one Cleaning Brush, a User Manual, and a Quick Start Guide.

How to set up and use the Levoit Classic 300S Ultrasonic Smart Humidifier

As mentioned earlier in this teaching, it is very essential for you to use distilled water in your humidifier. It helps to prevent the accumulation of minerals that could clog the humidifier’s parts and eventually damage the device. Additionally, this helps those who suffer from allergies as what you get out of the mist is purer and cleaner.

You also must note that the Levoit Classic 300S Ultrasonic Smart Humidifier requires a 110/120 Volts Input Power Supply, but if you are in a Country that uses a different Power Rating, you can still use this humidifier with a stepdown converter or transformer.

Now, make sure you place the humidifier in a convenient location and this cannot be on the floor. Then, plug the power cable into an appropriate power supply and press the power button to put it ON. If you are an existing user of Levoit humidifiers, you would already have the Vesync App and your Account. However, for a new user simply download the VeSync app (Android, iOS), and after that, pair it with the Levoit Classic 300S. To turn ON the Wi-Fi signal of the humidifier, press and hold the Power Button for 5 seconds.

As the humidifier is already ON, it is operating in Auto Mode, and shows you the present humidity of the room. In this mode, it builds up the humidity till it gets to 50% and shuts OFF, while maintaining a ±5% between 40% and 50%. The Mist Level Button on the humidifier allows you to change the intensity of the Mist Output from Auto, to Low, Medium, and High. Then, you can turn ON the light that’s on the base of the humidifier by pressing the Night Light Button and even increase the intensity of the illumination. Moving to the Sleep Mode Button, this allows you to turn OFF the digital display.

Being a Smart Humidifier, the Levoit Classic 300S gives you full control using the Mobile App, as well as the soft touch buttons on the front of the device. However, you can set your target humidity level via the App but you can’t do this if you are using the buttons on the humidifier. In addition to these, the Levoit Classic 300S being a Smart Humidifier allows you to control it from wherever you are as long as it is connected to Power and to your Wi-Fi network. With this, you can adjust the settings of the humidifier, you can monitor humidity levels, and set schedules with ease.

Performance of the 300S

Firstly, our expectations and usage of the Levoit Classic 300S have been nothing short of satisfactory, the device is indeed a blend of efficiency and comfort with powerful humidification. Let’s explain further.

The Levoit Classic 300S Ultrasonic Smart Humidifier is one machine you will find very easy to use. Irrespective of your background with regards to technology, it is a device you will find very comfortable with. It has clearly labelled Intuitive Controls. In addition, the Digital Display is very bright and will enable you see at a glance, and adjust the humidifier’s settings easily.

Then, the VeSync App gives you a lot of flexibility in using the Levoit Classic 300S. As long as the humidifier is plugged into Power and remains connected to your Wi-Fi network, you will be able to control it via your smartphone. In addition to this, the added voice controls further add to the convenience of using the humidifier.

In terms of humidification performance, this is one machine that satisfactorily gets the job done. Even if you decide not to set the Mist Level on High, the Levoit Classic 300S will still diffuse Mist in no time and bring the room to comfortable levels. The 6 Liters Water Tank Capacity is another big plus to this device. This helps to take care of refilling the device every now and then, and extremely helpful at nighttime so that it runs at a long stretch. In addition to these, it is a very quiet machine but when very close to it, you will certainly hear the sound from the mist outflow.

Then, Safety Features are built into the device also. The Levoit Classic 300S will Auto-Shut OFF when it runs out of water. If the water tank is removed while the device is ON, it will Auto-Shut OFF as well. The device also stores your Settings such that your Wi-Fi setup, the humidification you’ve set for the machine, and all other settings are used each time. Let’s now move to the comparison of this machine with the LV600S.

However, both Humidifiers have the same water tank capacity of 1.58 gal / 6 L.

The Levoit Classic 300S Ultrasonic Smart Humidifier has a Night Light Bulb for the water tank but this is not present in the Levoit LV600S Smart Hybrid Ultrasonic Humidifier.

The Levoit Classic 300S and the Levoit LV600S are both Smart Humidifiers and support Smart Controls (Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa) using the VeSync app (Android, iOS).

In terms of how the Levoit LV600S performs with regards to humidification, it is remarkably a dependable machine.

It is a humidifier that is also liked by many all around the world, in addition to its predecessor – the Levoit LV600HH.

The Levoit LV600S has the same setup method as you have in the Levoit Classic 300S. This means that you get it operational with the VeSync App. You have its beautiful Display in front to aid you as you use the device. Once it is ON, it gives you the current status of the room’s humidity, and you can then use the Humidity Button to increase the value you are currently seeing to your desired value. Once you have gotten to your desired level, don’t press anymore, the humidifier will then set this value as its target and stop immediately it gets there. If you press the Humidity Button for 3 seconds, what you’ve set will be canceled.

Using the Mist Button, you have three Modes which are Low, Medium, and High. So, you can choose any according to your use case. Then, the LV600S can be set to run for a specific amount of time and stop when it gets to the set time. This can be done with the Timer Button.

Now, as already mentioned, the LV600S is a Warm and Cool Mist machine but the Classic 300S is a Cool Mist machine only. So, the LV600S is provided with a Warm Button and it gives you the Low, Medium, and High levels as well for you to choose accordingly.
