    I googled moisture munchers and bought the ones that would fit in my housing - these are the ones that change color. They come in different sizes. Another couple of sources of the ones that don't change color are shoe stores - the ones in some of the shoe boxes fit. My pharmacist also collected an assortment from drug bottles. Most of them were too big but they were free!
    I know this is an old thread; but, I had camera lens fogging problems in COZ last week. After I got home I pulled out my moisture munchers and some assorted packets from purchases. The munchers were pink so I put them on a cookie tin and put all of them in the oven for 2 hours at 170 degrees. Now they are all bright blue and recharged. I keep them in a vacuum sealed plastic box. Maybe next time I will remember to bring them.

    Any recommendations on how many to put in an ikelite housing Ikelite Housing for JVC Digital Video Cameras and any ideas on how to attach them?

    Do they sell moisture muncher holders?

    Does it make any difference how close to the lens they are?

    Excellent idea CC. I think I will add a damp rid if it will fit in my vacuum container.

    Looks like the sell it at walmart in refill packets.

    Wife says they only absorb moisture that they actually touch.
