    Cool! Those packs are certainly easier to deal with than Dririte. Do you beg from your shoe store also, or do you have a source to buy them from? (in less that industrial quanties)

    Always happy to learn about a better mouse trap!

    How do you go about rejuvinating the packs? And yes, where do you get them?

    I always check with my local camera store, and they freely give them to me, but I have bought in industrial quanities as well, which is normally by the gross, (12 dozen)

    Silica packs can also be put in a lower temp oven for about an hours and this will restore their moisture absorbing properties, I learned this a long time ago, when in the RV business, as many of the componates were shipped to us with these packs and instructions on restoring the absorbing properties..

    If I remember right Porter's Cameras sells them as well

    Thanks Dave. I just checked Porter's site and found this: http://porters.com/Merchant2/merchan...Category_Code=

    It changes color when it needs "recharging". That's exactly what I need. My sister works in Cedar Rapids, so I'll have her pick me up a couple.

    Thanks!

    Yup, that's Dririte in a kewl little container!

    FWIW it is for exactly these kinds of exchanges that a board like this is so wonderful for! Another well deserved thank you to Sean!

    Stick 'em in the oven, about 120C for an hour or so.

    Check out Cabella's. They have metal cased silica packs for storing firearms that can be regenerated for years.

    ... or check out your local pet shop for cat litter. Several brands of the more expensive litters are silica gel with indicator included - at around $8 for two kilograms, you can choose how much to use and when to regenerate.
