This is the most convenient desiccant I've ever used! To reactivate it fast, place it on a microwave safe plate, and microwave it the recommended time. As another review stated, moisture will condense on the inside surface of the heat resistant clear plastic box. The simple way to deal with this is to use a hand held blow dryer. You can easily blow the moisture out of the box and onto the plate beneath it. If your dryer has a cool shot function, using that will even decrease the time it takes to cool the silica down, to enable you to place it back in the microwave faster. I put mine in a zip-lock bag and place it in the freezer to cool it down fast. When it has cooled, wipe the water off of the plate and run the desiccant through another cycle in the microwave etc., (take it out of the zip-lock bag first!). It takes several cycles of this to completely reactivate the silica, (as little as 10 minutes total time). Aside from being much faster, using this method avoids heating up the house in the summer with a conventional oven! Note: Because of their small size, these are best suited to keeping small containers dry.

My mistake for overlooking the product dimensions, but this thing is quite small. All the crystals had changed color in my long gun safe in about a week (who knows, maybe even quicker). I'm not sure if that's normal, but I would definitely get something bigger if I had to do it over again.

To dry the crystals the instructions say to microwave for 30 seconds on high. After doing this the moisture just accumulated inside the plastic case as little beads of water stuck to the sides, which will probably just get soaked right back into the crystals.

Other than that, I suppose the product works as advertised. Just don't expect to use it in anything bigger than a shoe box unless you want to constantly microwave it to dry it out.

I've had this thing for almost two weeks and it's been great so far. I have a pelican 1500 case and this is perfect for keeping stuff dry inside the case.

This stuff turns dark swamp green when it comes in contact with moisture. The transition is obvious and a very nice feature. If you dump water on the beads you will hear them crack and pop. My guess is they are expanding too fast and fracturing but they look fine to me. If you want to see them color change I'd use steam instead of water. Let them absorb water slowly.

A word of caution. Don't microwave for too long. Follow the directions and do it multiple times. 2 minutes on high and the plastic case starts to melt. So if you microwave either do it on a lower power setting or follow the instructions exactly. I prefer using the oven. It's much safer.

For those of you complaining about the size.. what do you expect? Anything measured in grams isn't going to be big. If want something for a big long-gun safe Dry-Packs sells the same cobalt-free stuff in 4.5 lb quantities (and larger). Or you can go the kitty litter route but I like have the color indicator. Anyone that's complaining about the size needs to check their reading glasses.

Product cases were smaller than I anticipated but they work as advertised. Each case is a little over an inch on a side and about 3/4 of an inch thick. If you expect one case to do much, you'll be disappointed. Have recharged them, per instructions, in the microwave with no issues. However you have to microwave them several times (maybe 4 or 5) in order to get them to change color. Moisture collects INSIDE the case and is reabsorbed which is why you have to recharge them several times. My biggest complaint is that I paid shipping but the 4 cases I ordered came in a single package. Since they are not large, and not heavy, this seems like a way to overcharge to me.

If you have something really small you want to keep moisture out of, like a gun case, safe or something of that nature, this will probably work for you. Anything larger expect to need several of these. If you're looking to keep moisture out of an RV or something with large volume, one case will be useless to you and I strongly suggest looking for a different product altogether.

The size and shape of this desiccant is perfect to fit inside my camera bag. The crystals are yellowy-amber, and when they become saturated they turn black. That all went according to plan. The problem came when I tried to "recharge" the crystals. I followed the directions, left them in the oven for extra long because I'd read that sometimes (especially if it's the first time use) the crystals need a bit longer. Nothing happened, however. After 5 hrs. the crystals were still black. So I put them in again, this time for 11 hrs. Still nothing, still black crystals. I then gave the microwave method a try. That didn't work at all. I ended up throwing them out. For the 4 months before they turned black with moisture saturation, they were great. The question, in my mind, is do you want to pay $13 for a one-time use, disposable desiccant? I think these would be great to use if you were traveling to a humid area, but for the long haul, I'll just go with a more economical throw-away desiccant.
