      Come on ADI, you're clearly still around because you're spamming your previous backers with ads for EcoQube C+. Please reply to emails and support your existing backers.

      I was really loving my EcoQube Air until it suddenly stopped working yesterday. I've been using it since I received it less than a year ago, and have had few problems. As others have said, the app is quite frustrating at times, and really isn't as flexible as I would have hoped. But I was still able to grow some lively basil plants that I had to trim weekly in order to keep them from outgrowing the cube. Everyone in my office loved coming by to see how the plants were doing, and I enjoyed the little bit of nature and all the extra light in my rather dull cubicle. As the weather turned cooler, I decided that I would make the EcoQube the winter home for my young bonsai. I began to use the fogger, which I had previously ignored, as the basil seemed to be thriving well enough without it. As Steve said, the fogger seems pretty underwhelming, and I noticed that I would have to run the fans for the mist to even rise into the plant area at all. No big deal though, my main concern was to provide a warm, well lit area for my bonsai to shelter in. Unfortunately, the pot that my bonsai is in is just a bit too wide to fit down into the watering tray, so I still have to take the pot out to water it a couple times a week. Then, of course, there's the need to "reprogram" the EcoQube once I'm done watering and am ready to close it all up again. A mild inconvenience, really no big deal.

      Anyway, yesterday, after I took the bonsai out and watered it, I put the EcoQube back together and it failed to turn on. I disassembled it completely, disconnected everything on the inside, re connected it, and tried again. No luck. Then I tried just plugging in the power source. No luck with that either. I made sure the rubber gasket wasn't blocking the connector. I tried plugging it in to multiple outlets, and the best I ever got was a momentary flash of light.

      Having run out of ideas, I decided to try to contact you all. I noticed that the EcoQube Air site no longer exists, however, and now I'm a bit concerned. Is there any support structure left for this product? I hope to be able to continue using it!

    11. Aqua Design Innovations 5-time creator on November 19

      @Steve, we respect your comment. Support will be in touch with you to assist you with the issues or you product.

    12. Steve on November 17

      I've gotta say, I would not recommend this product if someone were to ask :(

      I waited and waited and waited for this to be shipped - that was the first negative to this experience. But that aside, after having this for a while now, I've realized that the app is very, very poorly built.

      Not only is your ecoqube essentially useless without the app (as others have also pointed out), the control from the app is extremely limited. For example, there are only 3 settings to how often you want the pump to run, which is entirely inadequate for many situations. I don't know why there is not the ability to schedule the pump to run at various, specific points in the day, at various, specific amounts. This seems to have essentially eliminated much of the automation that this device was meant to provide as I have to open the app and force the pump to run when I want it to. Which is essentially the same as watering a plant the traditional way, I just don't have to pick up a watering jug.

      Oh and the fogger is essentially useless as far as I have seen.

      Once I first got my ecoqube, I could not get any of the seeds to grow beyond about an inch tall, which I'm now positive was because I was using the predetermined pump settings in the app (not forcing the pump to run specifically when I need it, like I'm doing now). I switched to some plants that had been started in soil - carefully removed them from the soil and cleaned them off to put into the ecoqube. This first set of plants did ok for about a week but then all died. Again, likely due to the presets for pump frequency in the app being inappropriate. Once I started daily babysitting them, they've been growing very well. In fact, a little TOO well!

      It's a nice looking box for sure, but it's completely self defeating that I have to manage this thing daily by loading up the app and force the pump on/off when I need it. I think the hardware itself is probably pretty good, but the app is just really, really poorly built. If the app is fixed to include better scheduling features, I think that could heavily change my opinion of this product. I don't see any reason why this would not be possible. But until then, I can't recommend.

      Hello,
      I setup my EcoQube Air, however the blue dots keep flashing and I can not get the fan or the fogger to turn on. The lights work and the iPhone app works and connects to the EcoQube Air. I’ve tried connecting and reconnecting the top of the Qube to the base. It seems to connect without issue and it’s a snug connection. Is there away to test power to the fan and fogger?
      Please help please.

      Never mind. Didn’t think it was from the cube and I just ID’d the source. Just need to have the thing dry and test the water tank. Then see if it still works. *sigh*

    32. Olivier BASILE on October 16

      Hello.
      Can you please fix the Ap for Android ?
      The cube can't be used without the Ap.

      When we try tout setup à program, it shut down...

      I tried with iPhone and it worked.

      Thanks,

      i received my device in the UK last week? be prepared to have a US to UK adaptor
      Re, fogger issue
      tries distilled water, no go
      tried filtered drinking water, no go
      tried filtered tap water, no go
      finally, pure tap water (after googling ultrasonic foggers and finding one that looked similar) and it works

    38. Alan Pritchard on September 21

      ok... my answer maybe in the troubleshooting guide for the fogger
      "do not use distilled water"
      sorry to sound dumb, but what kind of water should i use? it specified purified water and i assumed that distilled was appropriate due to its lack of impurities

      ok, got mine, got it running after buying a plug adaptor
      However
      i cant tell if the fogger is doing anything, its been running around 5 hours, i enabled it in the app.
      also.. it doesnt seem to be following the schedule i set, ie clouds. lightning etc.
      i tested the modes form the app, set a schedule, hit resume schedule but nothing
