Eva-Dry E-333 Review

The Eva-Dry E-333 (starting at $13, Amazon) is designed for small, enclosed spaces such as closets, according to Eva-Dry E-333 reviews. It has no cord or fan, no bucket or hose. Instead, it uses silica crystals to absorb moisture. At 6 x 1.2 x 4.8 inches and a little more than 1 pound, it's easy to move to any small space where it might be needed, according to consumers posting Eva-Dry E-333 reviews. An attached hanger lets you put up in a closet. We've seen reviews from consumers who've used this dehumidifier in camera bags, instrument cases, jewelry cases, gun cabinets, lockers, and safes.

Users posting Eva-Dry E-333 reviews appreciate that this tiny, wireless dehumidifier is completely silent. It has no humidistat, so you can't set it to a specific humidity; it will just remove as much moisture as it can absorb. An indicator turns from blue to pink when the dehumidifier reaches its moisture capacity. At that point it must be "renewed" -- i.e., plugged into an outlet outdoors or in a well-ventilated area, to release the moisture back into the air. According to the manufacturer, it should need to be renewed every 20 to 30 days. However, some consumers, including one who posted an Eva-Dry E-333 review at Ace Hardware, have found that it needs to be plugged in considerably more frequently -- about once a week. A couple of customers note that the instructions specifically caution against leaving it plugged in to renew for more than 12 hours. In reviews on Amazon, some unsatisfied customers say the crystals never changed color, suggesting that the unit wasn't absorbing any moisture. However, most users seem to find it effective.

Where to buy

In an Eva-Dry E-333 review at B&H, one consumer refers to the Eva-Dry E-333 as "everlasting," and another user reports on Amazon that it has lasted for four years with no letup in efficiency. The manufacturer indicates that the Eva-Dry E-333 should work for up to 10 years and offers a five-year warranty.
