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.

Top Customer Reviews
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.
The larger EDV-500 has a much better hook which fits through the holes in the Eva-Dry EDV-500 plug, a feature that is not very well documented!
Also, there are occasional specials: recently a 2 for 1 sale on the EDV-500 with free shipping.
Only reason for not giving this product a 5 star is that as stated in other posts, the recharge process gets the unit very hot and it doesn't always sit well in an outlet without support. I too had one unit fall, and was fortunate the case stayed intact but the little beads could make for a real mess if the unit broke open!
But the real mess this thing avoids is dealing with drying chemicals that collect water and the dissolved dessicant. When that tips over, it is a wet mess, so the EDV-500 and EDV-300 avoid that type of mess.
PS - where in the world did someone get the idea to label this "wireless" in the Amazon description? Very misleading!
