It is cheap enough. But how well it works....I don't know. The top of my unit is very difficult to get off to gain access to the sponge. The two plastic clips that hold on the top are very small and flimsy. I am afraid they will break off every time I remove the top to get to the sponge.
I put a humidity meter in the case with the guitar and the guitar humidifier after wetting the sponge. The reading before I put in the meter and the reading after 48 hours were the same. I checked the meter and it is working properly. So this thing might work but not enough to register on a humidity meter. This thing might make you think it's working but I doubt it.
In my opinion having a room humidifier is the best answer.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Acoustic Guitar Humidifier:

      I have a high end 2011 rosewood /spruce acoustic that won't drink a drop.

      My 20 year old mahogany/spruce drinks a sponge a week. The sides of the fingerboard on this high end Canadian dreadnaught were pulling in (scalloping) between the fretwire ends. The sponge swelled them in 3-4 weeks of 5-6 day rehydrates.

      If your guitar drinks these sponges dry in a week keep soaking them with distilled water and shaking them before installing in the guitar. Check every 5 days. Who needs or wants to break in another new guitar, right? Get your self a humidity gauge. I use a analog (dial) brand whose name matches Bart and Homer's hometown as these are adjustable. They can be disassembled and calibrated by a novice and are about a sawbuck. You use salt water to calibrate. Search the interweb for directions on this.

      P.S. Nothing gets 5 stars from me.

        Inexpensive humidifier. Simple to use and seems to provide adequate humidification.

            This humidifier is so great because it is easy to check on the sponge inside. We have several of them for our guitars and ukuleles.

              this device is well-designed, but made of flimsy plastic; and the clip-ons can break easily. fortunately, it's wide enough to exert sufficient pressure to hold it between the springs without them.

              the price is absurd. get a pack of sponges, cut 'em to size, punch some holes in a few small ziplock bags, and make a few of your own.

                      I use these for by acoustics and seem to function as good as the more expensive types. Like the way it works, doesn't dump water into the guitar. Just follow the simple instructions and it will keep your guitar from drying out
