Careful with that logic.

It's actually more than the System One's tank.

System One: 325 mL

H5i: 380 mL

pp. 7



That is about right. I would run out of water with the H5i once I got the humidity turned up enough.
The F&P is not as good looking and much bulkier but I can put 500-520ml of water in it and it will last at least 8 hrs.

Wow, you're away from home a lot!

If you travel by car, it would be worth the extra space then. But if it is by air, then it isn't.
