Has anybody tried these

Unibond Aero 360

If so were they any good? Thinking of putting one in Ginger for the winter.

Aldi are doing something similar on Thursday, includes 3 refills, and refill packs are also available separately.

I've used something similar before and the crystals seem to collect a fair amount, by the volume of water collected.

We have a 'Pingi' that lives in Tallulah, 4 mins in the microwave and it's as good as new, ready to collect more water.

If you put dehumidifiers inside your Kombi's ,Do you all lay them up for the winter then?

Ours normally gets laid up for part of the winter but the dehumidifier gets used all year round.

Thanks Dizzy. I've been on the look out for one of these. Even though Eddie is garaged it's amazing how much moisture is collected.

We used this type for the first time last year and what a difference it made. It was amazing the amount of moisture that was collected. We'll definately be using it again.

We used some cheap ones from Asda last year. Stood it in the sink.  We use our kombi daily but still helped with the condensation inside on the morning school runs.

Might have to get a pingi though, simply because I like penguins!! Does it last long tallulah before it needs re-heating?

Depends how much humidity it has to deal with, we tend to run it through the microwave before each trip, the colour of the pingi logo changes to show how 'wet' it is.

Had the aero360 in for 3 weeks now and this is how much moisture it's absorbed

Bought a similar looking de-humidifier a couple of years ago. The instructions said that it would not work below 15C ambient temperature.
Also have found that much larger volumes of water are collected using the crystal systems which we refill with new Calcium Chloride as needed.

Our van windows usually have alot of moisture on the inside and need wiping before driving and while driving. Had this halfords dehumidifier bag on the dashboard for a week now. Not had to wipe the windows inside once yet.
