    Silica moisture removers for safe

    I bought a bulk lot of silica gel packs because they're hella expensive individually, but ill never use it all

    Does anyone want some for their gun cabinets, camera cases, thermal imager cases or undy drawers?

    From left to right containers are
    125ml - 60 grams silica
    285ml - 80 grams silica
    385ml - 120 grams silica

    Was thinking $6,$8 and $12 respectively plus $3 shipping or can do larger amounts

    I just got some from Aliexpress and by bottom of my safe is now littered in the little packets, with a bunch in the pistol compartment too.

    They work really well if anyone is wondering!

    I received a pm that Gun city has 1kg packs for $10, I based the prices off the trademe prices about $30/kg and what I've paid in the past.
    Can do 1kg for $10 also, or $3,$4 and $6 respectively for the containers. So half the price i listed

    Running just a standard lightbulb 24/7 will cost $224.25 a year at my current power cost ($0.256 kw/hr). Hard to notice on the monthly bill but does add up over a year

    I have used those silica things before and the rifles still got rust and had heaps of moisture on them. So that's why I use a heater.

    How do they even get power to the island? You should definitely buy some and save having to keep lighting candles in your safe
