OVERVIEW

Effective humidification in extreme climates.

While the original Blue Oasis provides sufficient humidity in many environments, it is not effective everywhere. The humidity demands of the desert, mountain states or frigid north exceed the humidification capacity of the device. For this reason, Oasis developed the Oasis Plus+ humidifier. The Plus+ is the same size and shape as the original blue Oasis, but is made of a different material that provides 50% more humidity output.

Because the Oasis Plus+ Humidifier is the same size as the original Blue Oasis and it has 50% greater humidity output, it will be necessary to refill the Oasis Plus+ more frequently than the original Blue Oasis.

If one is using a hygrometer, Oasis recommends that the Oasis Plus+ be used when the room humidity is below 25%. The original Blue Oasis should be used when the surrounding room humidity is between 25-40%. Above 40%, you don't need to use an instrument humidifier.

It is important to also to monitor the humidity inside your instrument case. Case size, design, material and other factors will impact the humidity permeability of each case. While general rules are helpful, a good hygrometer located inside the instrument case will give you the best information regarding proper humidification requirements.

FEATURES
  • You can see when Oasis is ready for refill
  • Long lasting humidification
  • Won't leak due to overfilling
  • Two levels of leak protection

I have been using these for a few years. I live in the California desert. Humidity averages 15 -20%. Very rough on nice guitars. The sponge things are dry before I can get them to the guitar case. They dont hold enough water to wet a postage stamp. I have never had one of these leak. I just checked all mine and filled them up. The sqeeezed them to see if they would leak. Now what I did have leak all over the inside of a vintage Martin was a Planet Waves Humidipak. As for these never a problem.

This product works well, until it leaks. I purchased one form my local music store back in November, and yesterday I noticed that it had reinflated after having been shrinking for several days before. I took it out and refilled it, and found a small wet spot had appeared. Luckily I caught the leak early, because had it grown, it very well could have damaged my expensive instrument.

I do not recommend this to anyone who doesn't want water damage on their guitar.

The OH-5 Plus Will Leak

By John L. Thomas

from Arizona

Comments about Oasis OH-5 Plus+ Humidifier:

I've had two of these units leak in very expensive guitars. I strongly recommend that they not be used. I sent the company owner an e-mail inquiring about the "no-leak" guarantee and asking for relief. I have yet to receive a response. Judging from the number of people experiencing this same problem, and the silence of the guy who makes them, I strongly recommend that they not be used.

        Provides quite a bit of humidity and lasts quite a while before requiring a refill. However, I have had a couple leak enough to possibly damage an acoustic guitar.

        Leaked

        By Vegas Mack

        from Las Vegas

        Comments about Oasis OH-5 Plus+ Humidifier:

        I'd recommend against getting one.
        It sprung a leak within 6 months of use. I ended up using 2 regular OH-1's for my Taylor 414CE since i live in Vegas and the RH in the winter is 32%.
        I'd recommend against getting one.

            Comments about Oasis OH-5 Plus+ Humidifier:

            I live in the desert and use these along with D'Addario Humidipaks for all my acoustic guitars. The humidifier for a steady supply of moisture and the Humidipaks to keep the relative humidity inside the instrument case at a constant 45-50%. By using both I decrease how often I have to refill the humidifier and increase the lifespan of the humidipaks by 2-3 months.
