Specially treated sponges inside the pods gradually release humidity. After the fluid is depleted, they can be maintained with distilled water.
The hygro-thermometer provides accurate simultaneous readings of the humidity and temperature inside your case. Also displays the high and low temperature and humidity since the unit was last reset.

Yeah, once you've achieved a pod fully loaded w/ solution, it will leak. Shake of the excess, towel dry, wait 15-20 min, & re-install. If it makes you feel better, fold a paper twl over the soundhole. You'll be alright. Really works. In winter, my house humidity (outside the case)= 28%. Inside case= 42%.
I bought this system because of the two-way humidity control. The "activator" fluid keeps the humidity up, and absorbs the excess, if needed. As with other systems, you have to be careful not to overfill the pods. Because the insides of acoustic cases are often fuzzy, I use a staple gun with (short) 1/4" staples to affix the velcro strip to the inside of a plywood-based case, rather than use the adhesive backing on the positioning strip. This way the pods stay in place really well during travel. Otherwise, when you go to remove and refill the pods, you rip the positioning strip out with them along with the case fuzz.
This is a great idea and set up. However, all four pods (from 2 seperate packages) leaked at their seam. Two could be gently pried apart. A little styrene cement or superglue will fix this. But be careful about getting water or activator solution on your guitar. They are doing fine now that I have completed what Humicase should have quality controlled before they were shipped. The adhesive velcro backing for the pods and control device is useless in a quality lined case. Use shoe cement found in leather supply stores to make them adhere to the inside case material. With a little patience and glue you can make a great idea work. Out of the box, Be careful!
I just bought a epiphone sheraton and i wanted to keep it awesome shape for a long time, so i bought this. The things i like about it are, it's compact and will fit in any case easily, and the little digital gauge tells you a lot of useful info (Temp,R.H., plus the highs and lows of each) also i like that it's easy to use, just activate the pods and leave them in the case. My dislike are that the glue on the velcro strips isn't very sticky (one of my pods came off and stuck to the back of my guitar, I'm gonna figure out another ways to hold 'em in there), also make sure that you turn the pods sideways to drain the excess water out or else it could get onto your guitars finish. i also dislike that every 10 minutes i check the gauge to make sure the humidity is ok. Because the pod got stuck to the back of my guitar i give it a 7 if there was a better way to secure them in the case i would give it a 9.
