    Remington dehumidifier opinions?

    Hey folks, I just bought a 2 cubic foot safe for my pistols. I was looking at this dehumidifier from Remington to use in the safe. Does anyone have any experience with it good or bad? It plugs into the wall outlet to renew it. Thanks for any feedback you might have!

    I have been using one in my safe for 6 months now. I generally recharge it every 7 days. Works great. Definetly worth the $!

    I keep 2 in my safe. Recharge weekly in the summer, about every 2 weeks in the winter. Been using them for about 3 years now. They work great.

    I used one last year under my motorcycle cover with good results. It will go back into service this coming winter. I expect that it would be more than adequate for a gun safe

    I'm interested in one of these. From the Cabela's site it says that it needs recharged every 30-60 days. What is it, 30-60 days or every week or two? It sounds easy to recharge by just plugging it in to the wall but can you overcharge it? I'd like something that doesn't need a lot of maintenance.

    If I can find one, the 12" version of the Browning EverDry may be what I'm looking for:
    EverDry™ Electric Dehumidifier,

    Edit:
    Ok, I found this one:
    MidwayUSA - GoldenRod GunSaver Dehumidifier 12" Long (Protects 100 Cubic Feet) 110v Black

    Should I worry about putting these inside of a wood (locked) cabinet? Do they get too hot?

    Thanks.

    I see most of you recharge it every week, are you using them in big safes?

    Correction it was the

    Golden Rod from Cablela's I used that worked so well. It is what I would recommend it is the same price and has better customer reviews on their website 4.5 stars out of 5 possible. If you are sold on the crystal concept you can get them from an RV store for alot less but I do not see how that is a good idea remember the crystals attract humidity and the water ends up stored inside your safe. What you are doing when you "recharge" Remington unit is evaporating the water stored in the unit

    The golden rod has been in my safe for 12 years and still works great. I would never remember to recharge something weekly. Set it and forget it!!
