If you were to make a one-day trip, what size packet would you use Could you tell me how many gallons there are?
Answering this question isn't as simple as it might seem. The amount of time it takes to empty a container depends on what is stored in it and how frequently it is used. Adding two packets of 50 grams to my 1 lb. bag works well for me. There is more than enough space in a 5 cubic foot safe (about 11 gallons). You might want to give a 5 or 10 gram pack a try to

Does not have the possibility of being recharged
When I first got them, I fell in love with I discovered that one of them needed to be cooked in the microwave on DEFROST as recommended after using them for a few weeks. I was careful not to overdo it, so I left the refrigerator on defrosting for 3 minutes. I knew it would get warm after 3 minutes, since it was a long-term system. I gave it another 3 minutes so that half of the yellow indicators would still be green after I spent 12 minutes on it. Unfortunately, it wasn't and the silica beads heated up and expanded, causing the bottom of the package to melt. I am extremely disappointed with this product so far.

The order was placed for six Considering our humidity in our part of California is usually only 40%, I placed the pouches on a folded paper towel and stored them in a Based on the manufacturer's instructions, I followed their steps
You must recharge them in the microwave on defrost, which only works when there is one pouch being refilled at a time, so it is a lengthy process! It was two days later that I checked them again and they were green once They are a waste of both time and money, according to me. After my trip to RID, I flew back to Chicago I'm happy to offer your products!.

Small storage containers are the only ones that can use it
There is only a small amount of storage that these Wisedry Desiccant packs are really useful for, such as on a desk or in a drawer. It takes only a few days for the desiccant to turn green after it absorbs moisture. You have to recharge the packs so frequently, which is inconvenient. The humid environment I have makes it more challenging. I have an environment with 65% percent humidity. The other issue is to recharge the pack in the microwave. The desiccant pellets are not designed to handle high temperatures. A heating system. The pellets started to deform in shape after being heated for more than 5 minutes (just to restore it to the orange color). It may be better for people with low humidity environments to use this product. For those who have a lot of storage containers like I do, I have found that it's better to have a dehumidifier in the room where the containers are housed. Among the pros They come in convenient sizes
2) They are easy to use
3) They are microwaveable
4) The desiccant does a great job Among the drawbacks of using pellets in humid environments, be aware that 1) the drying effect does not last long, and 2) the pellets may deform if recharging too long (in the microwave).

The large filament dry box I have for my 3D print has no humidity! Moisture causes 3D print filament to go bad over time, so I bought this to prevent this from happening
amazed when I placed a single pack of newspapers in my humidifier on day 1 and the humidity reading fell to zero within a few hours. I dropped the others I wasn't using in the jar This picture shows a humidity reading of about 4 percent. In order to see the contents in a better way, I turned the lid off and let the pack stand up. That caused the humidity to rise slightly. Nevertheless, I would definitely buy it again, it is totally worth the price. I used a couple of them to store homemade beef jerky and dried bananas. This is a great product!.

Quickly soak up moisture
I'd like to see 250 gram packs of this. As far as these packs are concerned, they do the There is a possibility that they are too small for the room. However, they do what they are supposed to do.

As long as they fit my needs, they will be fine
As I was stuffing documents into storage, I looked into what size I need for the boxes. The ones I have here seem That design keeps out as much moisture as possible. These came in a package with a sealable plastic bag, as well as a recloseable zip top bag for the ones you do not use. I have been satisfied so far with their services.

Can be reused You don't have to guess when it's time to dry the gel packs anymore because the gel packs can be dried automatically

It is best to stay away from it
A second drying of the packets caused them to break open. The return date is 1 month from now. I decided to do the second drying cycle (1 month and 9 days after purchase) with the microwave set for 22 minutes of defrosting. During my first drying cycle, I learned it takes twenty minutes for the desiccant As per their instructions, they must submit between 9 and 11 p. m. I spent 12 minutes on the phone. The second time I attempted to defrost, the packets stayed together and ripped open when separated. There was a lot of beads flying around. When I tried to get a refund, I found that a packet is only refundable for one While I don't know why Amazon gives this desiccant such a good rating, I suggest you steer clear of it.
