    I use them in ammo cans and stuff. Not too much humidity here but saving them from electronics and shoe purchases doesn't cost me anything :rofl:

    You can recharge them by heating them on a low setting in the oven too.

    I got them in ammo cans and few tossed into my safe. Never had any problems before so I can't say if they actually do any good.

    we have a Remington dehumidifier in our safe. when the beads turn a certain color we plug it in and it heats up so they release their moisture. we keep packets in with the ammo. we never had anything get crappy in our safe before and we've never had ammo fail to go boom. but some of the stuff we shoot doesn't get shot very often.

    I threw a bunch in my cabinet. I steal them from the new boxes of nut/bolts at work :o

    I figured it couldn't hurt.
