it works! I needed a dehumidifier for my bathroom, something that's small, quiet and not expensive. I am very glad that I bought EDV-300. I also got the mini version from Eva-dry as well and both work as expected. The crystal balls of the mini one changed color after about 1 week or so. The EDV-300 is starting to change color now that it
s about 1 month after I first started using it. The mildew is visibly less and takes a longer time to build up. My suggestion is that if your bathroom is over 9 square footage, you should get at least one EDV-300 and a mini one....more info
Great for small spaces OK, this product sounds great, and it is, but only for the things it's actually made for ie. small enclosed spaces and not entire rooms.
I bought the smaller version for a small safe (about 1.5' square) I have that was always getting humid and allowing my documents to get moldy. In two days the relative humidity went from 67% to 38%. Two more days and the musty smell disappeared. After a month the indicator crystals are still pretty blue. For this job, the Eva-Dry 300 is perfect. I had tried many other different options over the years (the reusable envelope ones the aluminum ones, both that recharge in the oven) and, so far, this is the only one that works.
I love the plug-in recharge ability, too. Putting things in the oven for 3 hours (or 15 hours at 275¡ãF as the envelope types needed) takes up a LOT of energy as well as requiring you to pay attention to it (granted, not a lot of attention but some) while the Eva-Dry units can just be plugged in before bed right next to the safe and are ready to go the next morning using very little power.
However, I also bought the larger version (500?) for a small closet (maybe 5'x2'x8') that was also oddly humid. That space was just too large for the unit as the crystals would turn pink at the most once a week and it still seemed kinda dank in there. I'm sure I could have just plugged in the unit every few days, but that's just too much mental energy. Those big Damp-rid units worked better for that. Can't blame the Eva-dry...I'm sure it was adsorbing it's 8 oz of moisture, it's just that my closet was somehow producing more than that!
So, in conclusion, these products are great, for small enclosed spaces (camera storage, safes, moxa storage etc) or larger spaces with just a bit of extra moisture. In fact, I just ordered two more!...more info
Great for small apartments this is a neat little product if your apartment doesn't circulate cool air very well. i used to reside in a basement apartment with a single window and found that when i cooked or took a really hot shower i would always have to open the window and the door because the humidity levels would be unbearable and a fan didn't help much. I purchase about 2 or three of these neat little items and placed them around the apartment and they sucked up the moisture well. It's energy efficient the only thing is that it required the use of an outlet to expel the moisture which is not a luxury when you reside in close quarters but if you have the space to plug it in and open your window to let the excess moisture get out good for you but then you really wouldn't need it so this is only beneficial if you live in a tiny not well ventilated apartment....more info
i think it works um, well, it does what its supposed to do, i have no idea if it makes a difference, it does changes color, and i do follow instructions on how to recharge it again, but, its a really small room where i have it, i have stored electronics in it, so i guess it is absorbing the humidity. great little product. ...more info
These things are great! I live in Florida and love these wireless, renewable mini dehumidifiers. I have them in every closet. I've been using the same ones for the past 5 years and they still do their job perfectly efficiently and trust me...Florida mold and mildew is a challenge. The Amazon price is good too...much better than what I paid for them originally when I first discovered them in one of those sky catalogues....more info
IT DOESN'T WORK! WHEN WE PURCHASED THIS ITEM FOR OUR SMALL BATHROOM WITH A MOISTURE PROBLEM WE WERE VERY OPTOMISTIC. BUT, WHEN WE RECIEVED THE PRODUCT THE INSTRUCTIONS WERE NOT VERY GOOD. AND THE DIRECTIONS SAID THE PRODUCT WAS READY WHEN THE SMALL "BALLS" IN CENTER WERE BLUE. WELL, YOU CAN'T TELL IF THE STUPID BALLS ARE BLUE BECAUSE THERES BLUE AND PINK BALLS. SO, I GUESS IT DOESN'T WORK.THEY SHOULD BE EITHER BLUE OR PINK NOT BOTH....more info
Gets the job done! :) I purchased this product to lower the humidity in my geckos' tanks (as it gets a bit humid here during the summertime). The dehumidifier comes with a detachable hook, which I used to hang it above their tanks, and voila, the humidity dropped. :) And, per reading other reviews here (and reading the products directions is always helpful!), I knew that I only needed to plug it in when the beads were pink -- and it took far less than the 8 hours to "burn" the water off & turn the beads back to blue (or dry). This works great & I'd definitely use it elsewhere in my home. :)...more info
Great for Basement, Closet, Garage! This is the BEST mini dehumidifier I have seen. No Chemicals. No Batteries. No Fuss. Just hang it in the damp room - mine is in the basement. When the beads turn pink, plug it into an outlet and it "burns out" the water, ready to be put to work again. It has completley eliminiated that damp, musty smell from my room....more info
KK "Reader" MISUSED the product: Do NOT plug in... You do NOT plug it in in the humid room. You plug it in when you want to RELEASE the collected moisture!
I've weighed mine repeatedly on a postal scale and the cyclic change shows it's working - it will absorb and release about 1/2 cup (4 oz) of water....more info
Agreed! Not for bathrooms! I wish I had seen the other reviewer's comments about this. I purchased this for the same reason (ad said it worked well in small room), but it is insufficient to remove the moisture from a bathroom. It may do well, as suggested, in a closet that is not a source of moisture but suffers from some humidity, but despite leaving it plugged in around the clock in my bathroom, we are still having problems with moisture....more info
Needs constant "drying", easily falls and comes apart I agree with the customer who complains about the balls becoming pink very fast. I bought four of these to put into the closet of each bedroom and I have to plug them at least once every two-three weeks, which is kind of a hassle. Also, they easily come off the hook and, should they hit the ground, open and spill the balls all over the place; quite messy. I am looking for a better solution. ...more info
satisfied Good product. keeps my guns dry. when the beeds change color just plug it in for a few hours and start again. The only hold back is that is has nothing to hang it or clip it on something.
great for musty books and papers! wonderful for asthma and allergy sufferers! When my grandchild was born I got out the children's books I had stored away. They smelled so musty I thought we would never use them, but by putting them in a cupboard with Eva-dry they soon smelled fine. Same with photos and documents kept in a damp file cabinet. After investing enough to put Eva-dry in linen closets, winter clothes storage and just about everywhere, my asthma and allergies have improved dramatically....more info
Pretty good, but maybe not big enough for what I need These things seem to work as described. I can easily hang them in my closets, and the little blue things turn pink over time. The problem is that they seem to only take a few days to turn totally pink and then I have to re-charge it (which is also pretty easy). I guess (assuming that the blue-to-pink transition actually does mean it's absorbing water) its a good product overall, just don't expect it to tackle any huge jobs....more info
Works well I use this to keep the moisture down in my kegerator and it works well. A fan to circulate the air around it helps tremendously. I highly recommend it if you are going to use it for a kegerator....more info
Works like a charm I have bought four of these for firearms and ammunition storage and all have worked outstandingly well. My only complaint is the size of the units. I wish they had one that was smaller that functioned the same way. But overall I am really happy with these units and it sure beats the sillica packets....more info
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
Works to a point I purchased two of these for my cabinet which is 2' X 3' x 2', and they work fine for about 24 hours, then I have to recharge it. I found having 2 allows me to recharge one while one stays in the cabinet. It is a bit of a pain to change daily, but for the price it works. Unless you live in a dry area, I would buy 2 so you can cycle them back and forth and have constant dehumidifying rather then 1 and letting the area get damp while it recharges....more info
Needs charging every 2-3 days Very disappointing. There is no way this unit holds 8 oz. a day. I have used other dehumidifier products that lasted 2 weeks, absorbing up to 16 oz. I bought 4 based on positive reviews... It was a mistake....more info
Great performance My house has some places where humidity is around 80%. I have been using the Eva-dry in closets and it works perfectly. This is de cheapest way to keep your clothes or things dry. No refills necesary and it is reset easily and fast....more info
no noticible improvement I've had this in a closet for about a week. It is very humid where we live. So far it has not made any noticeable difference and I've had to recharge twice this week alone.
It is beasically the same as those crystals you get at the drug store for a couple of dollars, but it plugs in (awkwardly) instead of being put in an oven to dry.
It may work well where it is not very humid, but then, what's the point?
I also bought 2 other everdry units at the same time. The next one up is effectively the same as this but larger. The "petit" unit work like the larger ones, collecting water in a resevoir. It has made more difference in a few hours then this one did in a week.
I'm considering another one of those, but would not buy this one again.
Very disappointing....more info
Great use for paper collectibles Great use for small and quiet areas. I collect comic books, and this is a great size and use for storage in a closet. ...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 little dehumidifier This is an excellent little dehumidifier. I've tested it out in my basement in an area that gets damp when it rains and it does it's job, with the little crystals changing colors and absorbing the extra moisture in the air. Then you just plug it in and let it re-charge/dry-out and you can re-use it over and over. This simple dehumidifier is perfect for your car or small spaces that can get moist....more info
I love this thing I've been discovering moldy clothes in my closet for years and having to get rid of some and dryclean some; they all still smell somewhat.
Then I got this product for my closet and it's been amazing. No moldy clothes yet, and I can feel the difference in the closet. This puppy works overtime!
Plusses: Renewable. Does not require the same resources as Damp-Rid. Works better than Damp-Rid. Easy to use. Inexpensive.
Minus: Needs recharging too often--for me, about every 2-2 1/2 weeks....more info
Does the job! Handy, practical and an essential piece of kit when travelling in tropical climates to protect photographic and electronic equipment as well as long term storage....more info
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
Use it in your camera bag To help keep camera gear dry in the field when shooting in damp conditions, one of these in the camera bag will work nicely. Then just plug it in back in the hotel room, and it's good for the next day....more info
Good item does the job, does it well, just have to recharge it every week or so! ...more info
Eva-Dry 300 Dehumidifer Outstanding product for controlling humidity in smaller spaces. The Amazon free shipping arrived in 2 days. Great feature of just plugging in to remove collected moisture and recharge unit. Outstanding Amazon service....more info
EDV-300 This renewable dehumidifier is very good for small, enclosed space. In a small space, it normally needs recharging after 5 to 7 days. Its dual voltage charging system is versatile for travel purposes....more info
I have mixed emotions I bought it i put 2 in my closets but after the 3rd day they are in the pale rose. Ok nothing smells, But i'm confused. the same happens with a little cabinet maybe of 20cms by 20cms....i put to charge and they where dark blue and now i checked and they are pink....so i don't know if they are working or not i gues i will have to try them until i decide if they are worth the money. that is the only thing i can say about them and i have 4, 2 in my room's closet and one in 2 little cabinets. I can not understand why they changed in 3 days from dark blue and more than 15 hours of charging to pink....On the other hand i can not say they are bad , at least i'm not smelling anything , but then how i could get the indication that they are full?...more info
Get the EDV-500 instead I purchased one EDV-300 for a small closet and one EDV-500 for a larger closet. I LOVE the EDV-500 but this smaller version seems to always be "pink" -- meaning it needs to be charged/dried out. It was even pink in the package when I received it. Once charged, the granules do turn blue but they get pink very quickly (a few days). Also, my husband knocked it over and granules fell out all over the place. I was able to repair it but lost a lot of granules. My advice is spend the extra money and get the EDV-500....more info
Simple and effective I use this unit in a 2 cubic ft. fire safe. I had been using silica bags, but I could tell they weren't working well as papers in the safe actually felt limp and slightly damp. Popped this unit in after recharging it, and the next day the crystals had gone from blue to pink meaning it had sucked out a lot of moisture. Recharged it, next time around it took a few days to max out. Now I'm up to recharging about once every other week. Papers now feel dry, and safe doesn't smell musty. My only caution is to be aware of the size. The unit is a bit bigger than I expected (about 6x5x1.5 inches)....more info
Eva-dry EDV-300 Renewable Wireless Mini Dehumidifer The thing works well. But in my 16 gun fire rated safe it lasts only about two weeks before needing recharging. I expect the unit I need should be bigger than this one. It would be hard pressed to do more than a chest or something smaller than a regular size guns safe. However it works fine I have to rate it high for that. It's just undersized for my needs. I might just get another one and twin them up. Or move it to the ammo box and get one of thier bigger ones for my safe. ...more info
works well for small areas...not so much for large ones we got these to dehumidify our master bedroom closet (about 4ft by 9ft) because there is some dampness under the house. they work well and remove moisture but we're constantly recharging them every week or so that we now rotate 5 of them into the closet all the time. while they are a great product, their niche is aimed at smaller areas. ...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
Good-Bye Silica bags .... This is the third one I've purchased (two were already in use in two separate cases doing a fantastic job). With having to care for vintage costume jewelry, these units are perfectly sized to fit in my showcases and not be an eyesore. Usually requiring a recharge every 2-3 weeks, I purchased the third so I never have a minute without one protecting my collection. Definitely great value considering what silica packs cost every 3 months. Anyone with a prized collection (whether it be paper, guns, gems or art) should seriously consider purchasing this product for smaller storage areas (safes, cabinets, etc). ...more info
Great product! We are using this in our master bathroom and it works great! When it changes color, all we do is plug it in for 10-12 hours to dry it out. It really is a great product! Environmentally friendly, too!...more info
