  • Hi Jimbo

    Welcome to the site. Lots of help on here, as you will see. I don't use one but I have seen them mentioned on here before. Sounds fun traveling on the train seeing different places. I would enjoy that too. ☺ Rubyxx

  • hi ruby its great travelling up and down the country i have a disabled rail card so go cheap but can get some real good deals cheers jimbo

  • Hello jimbo38. Lidl and Aldi sell them occasionally. That's where I got mine. It runs either from a mains adapter, 12v car adapter or the internal batteries when charged. Mine is a Poly Green.

    I've checked Ebay and there's some for under £10 but I've no idea what they are like.

  • Hi Jimbo

    Welcome. I use a Omron MicroAir NE-U22-E Pocket Nebuliser and have found it very reliable. It is compact and once started can be used in any position.

    One downside is my wife cannot prepare it for me because she has arthritis in her fingers which makes it very painful for her to disassemble.

    Best price I can find at the moment is £85.00 at Amazon or Argos.

    Regards Andy

  • thanks for that andy big help cheers

  • I also use omoron and find they are VERY reliable. I keep one in car and one at home. Mine uses batteries or mains.

  • Hi, I have the same model...it's very good...just remember to carry spare batteries with you. I got mine from Evergreen nebulisers....you can ring them for advice or email

  • I have one of these two - is brilliant. I bought it for a holiday to New York.

  • I asked the super respatory nurses advice on this ,I use the hospitals nebuliser and said best get adapter for using the one I,ve got.Do they have electric sockets on trains these days?I noticed the prices vary enormously for portables.Good luck.D.
