RedHead Safe Dri Rechargeable Moisture Control
Does not last between charges
I purchased this product that claims 60 cubic feet. My safe is way less than 60 cubic feet so I thought this would be overkill and last me months. I bought this on August 2nd, and by the 19th the indicator beads are not almost completely pink. It is time to recharge in the next few days.
I live in Phoenix, AZ area we are known for a dry heat. This is our monsoon season, but my house AC is always on and I don't let it get hot in my house. For those that don't know AC actually pulls moisture out as well.
I was trying to save on AC by not buying the dehumidifier rod. I will now end up buying the electric dehumidifier as I do have an outlet in my safe. I will keep this as I didn't think to save the receipt for some a small buy. It will be my backup and will use in the small bedside safe.
I would not recommend.

I bought this a month ago and have had to recharge it going on twice. The second I've recharged it, it didn't work. I might have my safe in a too damp location (not by choice) and need more then one. I bought the 40 oz. Just trying to protect my husband's weapons.

Poor Product Design
Would not buy again, container lid should be screw on type, design is such that lid is held on with friction, and very little of that. Don't knock over by accident!

Worked as advertised
I live in the Dallas area and we do have humidity. I saw other reviews stating beads turned blue and they are supposed to. It's when they turn PINK that you need to re-cook them and that happened to mine as advertised. So far, so good. My container did start to get a few rust spots from the high moisture, so plastic may be a better material to use.
