This mini dehumidifier has been design to adsorb moisture from small enclosed areas (maximum area: 10'x 10'). It will help protect clothes and valuables from the damaging effects of mold/mildew and moisture rot. It is 100% renewable and needs no power to operate. Just hang the eva-dry unit in a closet, or you can place it in other small enclosed spaces, and it will start to adsorb moisture. There are no batteries required or cords to plug in, the unit works without power. There is an indicator window with special "moisture meter crystals" that change from blue (when dry) to pink (when wet) to indicate when the unit needs to be "renewed". The unit will adsorb approximately 8 to 10 ounces of moisture (depending on humidity levels this should take between 3 - 8 weeks). Once the moisture has been adsorbed it cannot leak or spill. This unit uses a specialized engineered crystallized silica gel that is odorless, non-toxic and completely safe. When the indicator crystals turn Pink it is time to "re-new" the unit. Simply remove the unit from where it is adsorbing moisture and plug it into a power outlet.

PERFECT portable dehumidification for camera and video cases!! This is the most convenient (portable) dehumidifying system I've ever used. ONLY two things kept me from giving this device a "5-star" rating; one, there is no smart (trickle) charging system...you must unplug it after 12-hours or it gets HOT!! Two, its somewhat heavy and will easily fall out of a vertically-mounted wall outlet if bumped (I recommend using a power strip or floor plug when recharging so the unit remains horizontal)...otherwise, I absolutely love the Eva-Dry. I purchased two units for portable dehumidification in my camera cases. I store all my photography gear in a digitally controlled dry cabinet when not in use, and I wouldn't trust the Eva-Dry (or anything else for that matter) to protect my equipment in a space larger than my camera bag, or for extended periods of time. However, for a weekend shoot in a wet environment, this unit works perfect!! The EDV300 is larger than what I expected (from looking at the photos). I was previously using "Indicating Drierite" desiccant in an aluminum dry box about the size of a bar of soap. The Eva-Dry is TWICE that size, but still fits nicely in both my bags. However, it would not be ideal for a smaller camera bag. The best thing about the Eva-Dry is the "plug-and-go" convenience. I do NOT miss baking desiccant in my oven for 3-hours to recharge it (making sure not to OVER cook it...or burn my hands). I recommend using a power strip (or floor plug) so the unit remains horizontal for recharge...its somewhat heavy and will easily fall out of a vertically-mounted wall outlet if bumped.
I haven't had it long enough to determine the life of the silica contained within, but I've recharged my units at least 10 times and found no decline in the effectiveness of the product. Although I return my camera equipment to the dry cabinet when not in use, I leave the Eva-Dry in my bags and they're usually good for approximately 10-days (before silica turns completely pink) inside an air conditioned house. Obviously the results are dependant on the RH of environment, but this is what I'm experiencing during the muggy Summer climate in Dallas. I was so impressed with the convenience of the Eva-Dry that I ordered two more units for my tool cabinet in the garage. I've noticed a dramatic decrease in surface rust inside the drawers, however, the units require recharge about once every 4-days.
I highly recommend this product for the applications mentioned above....more info
Nice Product I live in Haiku on the island of Maui, HI. There is so much moisture here that leather goods get moldy within days. I have a lot of electronic equipment, leather and canvas bags, that I had moisture/mold problems with when we moved here. Now I keep them in plastic boxes with one of your products in each box and ever since I have had no problems! If your product can work here it can work anywhere!
Excellent Camera Bag Dehumidifier What a great little product. I was looking for something to keep my camera bag moisture free and happened to see an article in Pop Photo magazine talking about this product. If you own a DSLR and lenses, you should know that moisture can cause mold and fungus to grow IN and on your lenses.
If you have a large(ish) camera bag - which most DSLR owners do - this is almost perfect - slightly on the large size but I still managed to get it, my Nikon D80 with a lens attached and two addition lenses, all three lens hoods, my extra battery and USB cable to fit in the bottom of my LowePro Orion Trekker II.
I love the fact that it is reusable by simply plugging it in for 8 hours to dry itself....more info
Too large Unfortunately, I purchased two of these and can't use them because they are too large to fit into a camera bag. They would work in a closet nicely I think....more info
Plug In Dehumidifier for your safe This product is great. I plug it in every week for about 12 hours and it dries out and then I place it in my safe. It is small, does not take up much room, works well and is easy to store. I am so happy I found this product!...more info
