The Hercules Ultrasonic Nebulizer from Drive Medical is a great portable nebulizer that gives you a deep, penetrating therapy. This ultrasonic nebulizer features a rechargeable, detachable battery pack so it can be used anywhere. Having a battery pack is very useful, especially when the power goes out. You can also connect this nebulizer directly to the wall outlet to conserve the battery when at home. This neb’s ultrasonic technology uses water to generate the fine mist of medication, so it’s important to have distilled water on hand for this nebulizer. This nebulizer is virtually silent when in use.
To meet your personal preference of medication delivery, this ultrasonic nebulizer has four different ways for you to take a treatment. The simplest method is using a mouthpiece that connects directly to the ultrasonic nebulizer. You can also use an extension tube to connect either an adult or child mask to the portable nebulizer for mask-based treatments. And finally, you can also connect a nasal piece in the same manner as the mouthpiece if you prefer to take treatments directly through the nose.
This portable nebulizer also lets you adjust the airflow to one of 3 settings: high, medium, or low. Be sure to consult your respiratory therapist before adjusting the airflow so you know you’re getting the proper treatment. It's important to regularly replace this nebulizer's air filter every 30 days to maintain optimum performance.

3 stars, Great for traveling.
By Fran from Mill Spring, NC on 2013-06-12
Pros: Very compact, Lightweight
Cons: Battery life low, Produces Low Volume Flow
Best Uses: Compact Easy To Travel
Great for traveling. But battery life is short and unit produces little flow volume. Takes much longer than the full version unit and you do not get the full value of the medicine. But if you need portability for short travels this unit is fine.
3 stars, Great -- BUT!
