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.

        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.

          The OH-5 Plus Will Leak

          By 

          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.

          Comments about Oasis OH-5 Plus+ Humidifier:

          Undependable device and not worth the risk with a valuable and expensive guitar!
          This unit works for the first 4 or 5 months then suddenly, it began to leak. Very disappointing as I purchased 3 of them and all failed after the same amount of timeframe.

          Leaked

          By 

          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.

          works well, but leaks

          By 

          from Colorado

          Comments about Oasis OH-5 Plus+ Humidifier:

          I have 7 of these, some in very high-end instruments. They are very effective at keeping instruments humidified, but they seem to have a design flaw with the fabric membrane. The "will not leak" claim is false, and I unfortunately speak from experience. I've had 2 of these start leaking profusely, in one case causing damage to the label in my 12-string guitar. Nice product, defective design that may damage your guitar.

          Buyer bewear

          Comments about Oasis OH-5 Plus+ Humidifier:

          I own two oasis humidifiers. the regular and the plus. Yes the product works, but I have had two (both were Oasis plus) leak in my guitar. I was fortunate to catch it before it leaked a lot. I returned the first one and received a second one in return. This one also leak along the side. In both cases it was along the seam where they leak. One more quick note I never over filled or abused either of the oasis plus humidifiers. The blue oasis has given me no trouble.

          Comments about Oasis OH-5 Plus+ Humidifier:

          I live in a very dry climate and have high end guitars. This one will hold three full syringes of water. No drips or leaks whatsoever.
