Since there are approximately one gazillion (more than a million but less than a billion) different hearing aid dehumidifiers or “dri aid kits” currently available in the market, generating excitement about yet another new dehumidifier is not easy. The relatively new DRY-ALL dehumidifier doesn’t offer any technological advantage over comparable products; quite frankly, it works just like any other dri aid kit that houses beads loosely in a jar. Just like other products, the DRY-ALL is composed of a small quantity of blue pellets that indicate when the beads in the jar need to be reactivated. Reactivation of the beads occurs via standard procedures with either a conventional oven or microwave.
So, what makes this product worth your while and attention? It will save you and your patients a lot of money. The DRY-ALL costs $5.40 less per jar than the popular Super Dri Aid utilizing the same molecular sieve technology. In other words, buying the typical six-pack will save you $32.40. Not a bad chunk of change for you to save, right? If you currently have your patient’s using loose-bead dri aid kits, give the DRY-ALL a try; not only will you provide your patients the same level of hearing aid moisture removal, but you will do it at a much more affordable price!
