D'Addario PW-HPK-01 Humidipak Guitar Humidity Control System
The Planet Waves Humidipak is the only maintenance free, two-way humidity control system for guitar. It automatically maintains the optimal 45-50% relative humidity level within your instrument case, eliminating the guesswork and potential mess related to refilling a humidifier. Unlike refillable humidifiers, the Humidipak system provides true "two-way" purified humidity control by adding and removing moisture on demand. No more manual adjustments based on seasonal changes, geographic locations, temperature, or other factors. The Humidipak Kit comes with 3 Humidipaks and a soft mesh pouch that will not harm your instrument's finish. Humidipaks last between 2 and 6 months and should always be kept in a sealed environment like a hard-shell case. Once the Humidipaks become firm, discard and replace using the 3 refills that come in the Planet Waves Humidipak Replacement Pack (PW-HPRP-03). This all new, reformulated, patented ldquo; two-way rdquo; humidification system maintains 45-50% relative humidity which eliminates all maintenance and guesswork. this system is recommended by taylor guitars and others for maintaining the stability and playability of your instrument.

No reason to think this product will not perform as expected. Should do the job it's intended for.
Easy to install. No messing around with distilled water. Just slide the packs into the pouches hang the double pouch over 3rd and 4th strings into the sound hole and the single one underneath the head stock. Pro tip I got from a well known guitar tech is to leave the one from under the head stock. As it's usually varnished there is no need. Save it in the sealable pack. When you buy refills you can use the spare pouch with one of the new pouches and then save the two left over for when they dry out saving you a little bit of money.
I’m afraid the only way to review this item accurately is over the duration of its life, which is apparently 3-4 months, as I’ve only used the Humidipak for a couple of weeks all I can say is it fits well and hopefully it’s doing its job.
Fantastic product and fantastic service
It has been really hot and I was concerned about my brand new Taylor guitar so I brought this product and a monitor and found it really worked and will carry on using it.
