E-500 High Capacity Renewable Dehumidifier
Major Moisture and The Mopley Crew are out there...
Stop Them With Eva-Dry!
Don't Get Hung Out To Dry With Look-A-Like Products...Trust The Original!
Often Imitated...never duplicated!
Eva-dry renewable dehumidifiers are manufactured at the highest standard and come equipped with an industry leading 5 year warranty.
Humidity is everywhere, in your closets, under your kitchen sink, in your safes, boats, RVs, bathrooms, and more. When you have too much humidity, the effects can be more than a nightmare. The E-500 packs a safe and silent punch to get rid of excessive humidity for up to ten years.
How It Works:
The E-500 uses a renewable silica gel technology that works without batteries or power. This renewable solution can be placed in any area up to 500 cubic feet and will silently absorb moisture. As the unit absorbs the humidity there is an indicator window that contains crystals that will change from Orange to Green. Note: There are no lights on the unit, so please check the actual color of the beads. Once it has reached its capacity (6-8 oz),this should take between 3-8 weeks, but will vary depending on specific conditions. Once the crystals have changed to Green, it is ready to be plugged in for 12 to 14 hours in a well-ventilated area. After 12 to 14 hours the crystals will have changed back to Orange and it is ready to be used again. The process can be repeated for up to 10 years!
No messy spills to clean or refills to buy...ever!
Even at full capacity, the E-500 will never leak or spill a single drop of liquid. It captures moisture vapor from the air and keeps it contained within the beads until the unit is ready to renew. Since the E-500 is renewable, it will not require any expensive refills. The E-500 has a lifespan of 10 years and is covered by a 5 year warranty.
- Easy to use
- Passive Solution
- Child and Pet Safe
- Great for safes

The break through Eva-Dry “Air Dry” system is a revolution in dehumidifying. Built on Eva-Dry’s rock solid and proven silica gel dehumidifying technology, the new Air Dry system, reduces “dry out times” by as much as 80% so, you can get back to dehumidifying faster in-between “dry out” cycles. This new process uses a blower/drying base to dry out the dehumidifying silica gel quickly and efficiently.
The Eva-Dry Air Dry system is built to the highest industry standards and will be a great addition to your dehumidifying arsenal. As with all of our renewable silica gel products, the Eva-Dry Air Dry drying units can go anywhere and are pet, child, and home safe. They will never damage your valuables, they won’t spill and BEST OF ALL no messy refills!
To renew the cylinders, place each one on the blower/drying base and turn the switch into the on position. The base unit will begin to blow warm air through the cylinder and rapidly renew each one in about 2 hours. We recommend doing this in a well ventilated area, because the renewal process releases the trapped moisture back into the air and you wouldn’t want to do that in the same space you were dehumidifying. Some good examples of places to renew your Eva Dry cylinders are: a bathroom with vent fan, the garage, the lanai, and other such locations. Once the indicator beads have changed from green back to orange the renewal process is complete and the unit is ready to begin dehumidifying again. You can repeat this dehumidification and renewal process for up to 10 years!
The Air Dry System includes: one (1) drying base, two (2) dehumidifying cylinders, two (2) hanger hooks for closet use.The Eva-Dry Air Dry system is back by a one (1) year warranty on the base unit and a five (5) year warranty on the cylinders.

Using one of these in each ammo safe requires a recharge about once every four to five weeks, I've recently added a second one in each safe and, as expected, the time between recharges seems to have nearly doubled. I get at least two months between recharges.
I also keep one of these in my gun safe, which is about 45 cu ft. The safe is equipped an electric (heater type) dehumidifier rod. The E500 brings the humidity down about 5% lower than just the heater rod alone, keeping the safe at about 40% RH. It may not be absolutely necessary, but it also gives me a backup in case the safe heater loses power. If you've ever had a safe without some sort of dehumidifier, it can be a disaster. A safe WILL become quite humid inside without one. Years ago, when I was young and dumb and not aware of this, I had a bunch of currency in a safe. Within a few months, the currency and other paperwork in the safe began to smell badly of mildew. In time it would have been destroyed.
Note that these units (which, oddly, the Amazon description implies are not electric) require a minimum of 12 hours connected to power to fully recharge. Unless you keep spares around, that leaves you unprotected for a time. Using two at a time eliminates this problem, of course. Personally, I've purchased two extras. I leave them on a power strip for two days, then seal them in a zip-lock bag. When one of the ones in use needs to be replenished, I grab a "ready" one out of a bag and cycle the spent one through the same process.
You should also be aware the these things do get quite hot during the recharging process. The manufacturers of silica gel desiccant specify a recharge temperature of 240F to 310F for 12 hours. Since these units contain silica gel, they're going to need to get at least 240F internally during the recharge cycle. There are some reviewers on Amazon who are upset by this, but physics is physics. They're going to get hot.
One last point. There are two versions of the Eva-Dry E500. One has indicating silica gel that ranges from blue (dry) to pink (wet). The other ranges from orange (dry) to green (wet). I have some of each. I don't know which of them is "newer", if either is, and there doesn't seem to be a difference in part numbers between the two. They both seem to work equally well, though I've not done any experimentation to prove this. At the very least, this may cause some confusion when reading reviews here, since the color ranges are quite different.
[Update 6/19/2016: The "New" version of the Eva-Dry E500 ranges from orange (dry) to green (wet). The original "blue-to-pink" desiccant used cobalt chloride as a moisture indicator. The EU now classifies cobalt chloride as a carcinogen if inhaled which, I'm sure, is why the Eva-Dry folks changed the indicator.]
Complaint: Only a minor one. As others have pointed out, the units cannot easily plug in to a wall outlet because they're too heavy to stay plugged in. That's not a huge problem. Power strips are cheap these days. But the way the fold-out plug works, the plug prongs are at 90 degrees to the length of the device. This means that one E500 takes up an entire power strip. There is no way to plug more than one of them (or anything else) in on the same typical size strip. If the plug was fitted at 90 degrees to the way it is, you could stack at least two per power strip. I did find larger commercial power strips with the outlets at 90 degrees which allows a number of these to plug in at once. But, as I say, that's a minor quibble. Overall these work well and I'm on Amazon today to buy two more.
# # # # UPDATE!
I actually left a unit plugged in too long, trying to dry out the large green beads. I finally decided to hang it in the closet, just to see what would happen. Well, apparently because I left it plugged in for about 5 days, it must have weakened the glue holding the unit together. The plug came out of the unit while hanging, the unit fell on the carpeted closet floor and broke, sending the beads all over (and there are a TON of them). But, at least I was able to see that the beads INSIDE the unit were dry, just the green beads on the viewing window were still green. The problem is still that the green beads (which are the indicator of "wet" or "dry") are still green, so there's no practical way to use them. If you can't tell whether the inside beads are dry or not, it's useless. I guess you could try to keep track of the dates, but that's NOT how they are supposed to work. They just need to stick to the smaller beads, I guess! So my conclusion is the same - go for the smaller units/beads.
I think it does the job well.
I did, however; add two smaller units to the RV as well for additional protection.
It's easy to use but does get hot. I would unplug this at night or if you're leaving the house. I probably also wouldn't use this on outlets next to or behind any curtains or other potential flammable objects. It doesn't (in my opinion) get hot enough to ignight anything but it's better safe then sorry.
Also, if you leave this to absorb moisture for a prolonged amount of time. Time well beyond the maximum then expect the recharge time to be triple what the instructions say.
I forgot to recharge mine for a long time and when I went to recharge it that process took approximately 48 hours. My photo shows some of the beads ever so slightly look pink after 48 hours. This is not a product flaw, this is what happens when you misuse the product and don't promptly recharge it.
I'm glad I purchased this and would purchase another if this broke.
