          I gave it five stars because if it works as stated it should be excellent for my equipment, especially being on the ocean all the time. We'll just have to wait to see how it performs.

          Comments about Ruggard Desiccant Silica Gel Pack (40 g):

          Seems to work as designed. I wish the small window used to observe the pellets was larger; it is difficult to determine the exact color (and with color the need for recharging) through the small window. Also, I bought one of these from Ruggard, and one from another manufacturer. Once removed from the manufacturer's packaging, the products were identical - can't tell them apart. But it does the job.

                  They seem to do the job, only comment, it would be nice if they made it a bit easier to see the color of the beads to tell if they needed resetting.

                      Comments about Ruggard Desiccant Silica Gel Pack (40 g):

                      To recharge you need to place it in an oven at 300F for 3 hours. I'll probably rarely do that. Plus, it indicated a recharge required after only around a week in my camera bag (moderately humid August). Consequently it's a product that will end up in the trash in a short amount of time.
