Humidification Issue With Air Mini

Humidification Issue With Air Mini
I've been using a Dreamstation or other Cpap successfully for about 20 years.  Recently I decided to get an AirMini for travel.  I used it the first time last night.  The noise didn't really bother me much and I fell asleep quickly.  Problem is I awoke after about an hour and a half with a very dry mouth and nose.  My nose was so dry that I couldn't sleep with it, and had to go back to my Dreamstation.  I used the HumidX filter.  Anyone have any suggestions?  I love the size of this machine, but I won't be able to use it if I can't solve this.  

Would I have better luck with a DreamStation Go and a universal HME? I don't want to get the humidifier because the total size is not much smaller than the full Dreamstation which I travel with now.  At least, thats my impression.

Any help appreciated

Thanks

Did you get both the regular HumidX filters and the HumidX Plus filters with the AirMini? My experience has been that the Plus filters (the grey ones) give noticably more humidity.

Thanks for your response.  In fact, I had a Plus filer and I tried it the other night, and it worked fine.  So you are correct.  I have no issues any more.

Its a great little machine

Thanks
