The makers of the popular Dry & Store Global II and Zephyr have introduced a new, very easy-to-use hearing instrument dehumidifier now available at Oaktree Products, Inc. The Dry Caddy is a passive dehumidifier composed of a Dry Caddy Jar and packaged with six (6) Dry-Discs. The Dry-Disc is a powerful molecular sieve desiccant; when placed in the bottom of the Dry Caddy Jar, it attracts and captures moisture from hearing instruments placed in the container.
To prepare for use, simply remove the foil cover from one of the six packaged Dry-Discs. Store the other unopened discs in the provided storage canister and place the canister in a dry cool place. Write the current date on the exposed Dry-Disc label then place the Dry-Disc in the jar with the date side up. Close the lid. NOTE: Keep the jar closed at all times to prolong the life of the desiccant. Every night, instruct patients to open the battery compartment of their hearing aids (batteries do not have to be removed) and place the hearing instruments in the jar on top of the Dry-Disc. Replace the Dry-Disc every 2 months based on the start date written on the label. There is no need for recharging or reactivating the desiccant. Since the product comes packaged with 6 Dry-Discs, each Dry Caddy provide one full year of hearing instrument protection.
