Eva-dry E-500 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier

New and Improved Eva-dry E-500 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier

Eva-dry E-500 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier by Eva-Dry

  • Environmentally Safe
  • No Messy Spills or Refills to buy
  • 10 year life span
  • Completely silent when operating

This contains a desiccant material that absorbs moisture.  As this material absorbs moisture it also changes color.  Dark blue means it’s dry and pink means it’s becoming saturated.  The great thing about the Eva-Dry is that the desiccant material is reusable.  The unit contains a built in heater that drives off built up moisture.  When it becomes saturated, plug it in overnight and it’s ready to go again the next day.

I’ve used one of these (the same one) for years, in my kegerator [See: Hands On: Eva Dry EDV-500 on our companion site for a review of this in that context].  You could also use it in enclosed spaces, like gun safes and the like to help control moisture.
