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.
- 100% renewable and does not require power for operation
- Designed to adsorb moisture in small, enclosed areas
- The crystals will remain active for 10 years
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- eva small dehumidifier
The product arrived within a reasonable time period so I have no problem with the purchase from the supplier. However, I should inform those who want to dehumidify a space larger than a cabinet that it needs recharging regularly. I have placed them in closets, a glass-fronted bookcase, and out in the open and they take only a few days to require reccharging via evaporation using an outlet. I would have ordered a larger unit if I had known this. They do work but are for small spaces. I live in a fairly arid environment as well so those who live in a more humid locale - say the east coast should upgrade to a larger model from the same manufacturer. Otherwise, the service was good. ...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 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
- RES eva-dry review
I like this product. I have several of them, and they seem to work very well. My only complaint is the hanger - it causes the unit to not hang as the clothes do (the hook needs to be turned 90 degrees). I would recommend them to anyone wanting a product like this....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
- 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
- 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!
- 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
- 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
- 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
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.
This thing is great!! I have 3 of them and use them in my safe. Very handy....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
- Ziggy's New Air..
We have a beautiful and loving cat Ziggy who has breathing problems;
this dehumidifer has been so good for him plus all you do is plug it in
and it has an almost invisible presence in the room...it has helped
Ziggy so much...we are very pleased with this product....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
- The Eva-dry EDV-300 Dehumidifer is a Hummer !
This Dehumidifer is The handy`s thing I`ve ever see ..... I use the EDV-300 in a Fire Prof. Safe that I keep about $1000.00 worth of Gun Powder and Primers in . It works Very Well and keeps my powder And primers 100 % "DRY" ! It has a set of Blue BB`s incased in the front of it that tells you the unit is ready for use . It will last for about 2 weeks or so , then the BB`s in it will turn Pink and you can see a little mosture in the glass housing the BB`s , Which means the unit needs to be recharge , or dryed out . All you do is ..... Plug the unit into a wall outlet (110 Volt) for about 4 hours with the flop down and out plug on the back of the unit ..... When you see the BB`s Turn Blue again , un-plug the unit .... Flop the plug shut or Close on the back of the unit , And it`s ready to put back in My Powder Safe for about Two week`s . Does a VERY Good Job and O-Mosture in my Powder Safe ! ... this unit is Worth More than 5 *****`s .... It`s Worth 10*`s ... Wouldn`t Take Nothing For It .
Be Sure You Buy The Right Size EDV Unit For Your Size Safe and it Will keep the thing in Your Safe "DRY" ! I have a larger EDV Unit in a Gun safe that Works Just As Well ....more info
- received different product
In looking at the pictures I realized I didn't receive the mini dehumidifier I got another EDV 300 which I had ordered on the same day. I thought it seemed weird but since one came from Ace Hardware and the others came from Amazon I thought maybe I'd read the descriptions wrong and had actually ordered the same thing even though I'd paid more. I learned to order from Amazon and not Ace Hardware....more info
- It's a joke...
I purchased this mini dehumidifier more than a month ago. I am still looking for a space in my small condo to put it so I'd finally see how it works....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
- 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
- Big, heavy, and relatively fragile, but it does work
I bought this to put inside a medium sized safe and it does seem to be doing a good job of controlling moisture, it's been in there 7-10 days and still doing okay, no need to recharge yet.
That being said, my main complaint is that this thing is big, like 4x7x1.5" or so, and most of that space is for the electric heater that "recharges" it by heating the gel balls inside. So it takes up a lot of space, relative to the inside of my modest safe.
Also, this thing is heavy, and if you drop it from even just a couple feet, it can cause damage both to your floor and the device. It slipped out of my hands once and the impact separated the housing some and gel balls started leaking out. I was able to snap it back together, but this is pretty cheap design that could have been fixed with some screws instead of plastic snaps.
Note this gets quite warm when "charging" so keep it out of reach of children to be safe....more info
- Works like a charm; love that it's renewable
We were steaming off wallpaper in our house which is a pretty damp job, so I picked up two EvaDry units (the EDV-300 and the EDV-500) from Amazon, and I'm very please with the results. Both are very easy to use; just take them out if the package, set them in a damp area, and they go to work. The little globules that you can see through the tiny window on the front gradually turn from blue to a very light pink as they fill up with moisture. When they're all totally pink, you just flip out the fold-down plug on the back, plug it into the wall (it hangs by its plug on the outlet), and it dries itself out. When the globules return to a dark indigo blue, you unplug it and it's soaking up moisture again.
Since the wallpaper project, we've been keeping them in a storage area in the basement, and they've effectively been removing the moisture (and the subsequent smells) from there as well.
What's really neat about these is the technology. I love that it's renewable and easy to use, and I feel a lot better since it's in an enclosed case; I no longer have to worry about pet poisoning or toxicity like I have in the past with those white pellets that were exposed to everyone and everything to possibly touch (or eat!). This is a much better system, and I love that it's easy to use and creates no mess or waste.
One thing to note is that they can get pretty hot if you leave them plugged in for a very long time (like a week). No problems, it just seems like an avoidable risk when you can just unplug them the next day or as soon as they're ready.
Regarding another reviewer's concerns about his or her inability to distinguish the differences in color: If you're using them properly, it's incredibly easy to distinguish between the colors at their extremes (and I'm even a little bit colorblind). Yes, as it soaks in moisture, some beads soak it in faster than others, making some pink while others remain blue. But if you leave it alone and let it do it's job, it will be unmistakeable when they all become a very light pink. Same with drying out; the rich indigo color is unmistakeable. You may want to give it another try. ...more info
