Ease of Use
When looking for a dehumidifier to eliminate moisture from your gun vault, you definitely want something that is easy to install and use. Installing the Stack On dehumidifier will take you less than a minute. All you need is to place it in the gun safe. The reason behind this is that the dehumidifier is cordless hence you don’t have to drill any holes on your valuable cabinet to let power cables in.
Maintaining the Stack On dehumidifier is easy. Just plug it into a power socket when it is laden with moisture and return it to the safe when all the moisture has been eliminated.
So would you tell when all the moisture has been eliminated from this dehumidifier? Well, it’s pretty simple. This SPAD 1500 dehumidifier comes with some beads and an indicator that shows you when the wireless device needs recharging.
When the dehumidifier has absorbed a lot of moisture, the beads will turn green. At this point, you will have to remove the wireless gadget from the safe and charge it until the beads turn orange before returning it into your rifle vault.
Stack On Dehumidifier Operating Mechanism
On the SPAD-1500, Stack On employs a mechanism that makes it easy for the dehumidifier to absorb moisture from the air, leaving your safe dry. No electrical wires are needed to power this dehumidifier. Even more importantly, the device isn’t battery operated despite being portable.
When it comes to moisture absorption, this compact dehumidifier absorbs a great deal of moisture from the air. However, it is worth noting that its effectiveness entirely depends on your location and the kind of safe you are using. It is capable of pulling excess moisture from a 100 cubic feet safe for 4 to 6 weeks before it requires recharging.
If you have a bigger cabinet, you might need two of these devices to remove all the humidity in your safe, unless you live in a dry region. On the other hand, if you live in a humid region, consider getting two of them for better moisture absorption. Also, if you have anything bigger than a 22-gun cabinet, you will require an additional Stack On dehumidifier for the best results.
How to Recharge
Knowing when this dehumidifier needs charging is simple. Just check the moisture gauge, which is conveniently positioned at the front, for any color change in the beads. When the beads are green, the dehumidifier needs charging. On the other hand, when the beads are orange, the dehumidifier doesn’t need charging.
When it is fully charged, the Stack On dehumidifier can pull excess moisture from a 100 cubic feet safe for about 4-6 weeks before it requires recharging.
To recharge your dehumidifier, simply plug it into a standard 110 electrical outlet overnight. Make sure to recharge it in a well-ventilated room for easier distribution of moisture. The recommended charging time is between 8 and 10 hours.
- Can last up to 6 weeks on a full charge.
- Unlike battery powered dehumidifiers, it doesn’t need batteries to work
- Has a moisture gauge on the front that indicates when it needs recharging

This Cordless dehumidifier from Stack On is small, compact, and easy to use. An overnight charge will give you about 4-6 weeks of uninterrupted functionality. However, this depends on your location –the more humidity in your area, the more often you’d need recharging. The dehumidifier is the best alternative for those who don’t have power cables in their safes. It is also better than many battery-operated dehumidifiers. For better use and more efficiency, it can be used alongside the Acurite humidity monitor and a safe light.
