View Full Version : Dry and Store
I have seen this product on many websites and it seems to be a good idea.
I hope that someone who actually uses the product will let us know how well it works for them.

I don't have the dry and store but I have a dryer that stays plugged in and I cover it whan the aids are in to try and dry them out. works a little but still to much moisture from living in the south in the summer time.
Here is my other better device. It is the LIGHTNING VAC TRAVELER. It is a Hearing Aid Vacuum Pump Kit in a travel case. It has a pump that can vacuum out moisture. Reverse the hose and blow out or hook up to a vacuum canisture to draw moisture from deeper in the aids' workings. It works well for me. If I am losing to much battery life it is the signal to run the vacuum sequence and just like that I have extra life and a little better sound. For those of you that go to a dispenser and they blow out and vacuum your aid this is the same thing just portable. It comes at a cost, but I feel it is not to high. It was 225 dollars but the aids are thousands so I think it is a good investment. I have had it about two years and its still like new.
If you are interested you can go to www.lightningenterprises.com and check them out. Hope this helps someone.
By the way I am not a salesman for just like the product lol :D

I use the Dry and Store Global, which I think were like $99 or so and it works pretty good.
The only concern is that I feel as if it is better to take the batteries out when I put it in there, since when I leave them in, the batteries seem to run out faster.
Anyone else noticing this?
The good thing, according to my dispenser, is that the moisture is removed from the aids and that it is supposed to make the hearing aids last longer.
Time will tell.
I have the Sonic Ions with a small tube...I just wonder if the constant drying will damage the tubes over time or not.
Will find out as I use them longer.

I use the Dry and Store Professional. My hearing aids do clear the moisture, but when I start to wear it again, I see the mositure in my tubes again. I don't know why I kept seeing them during the day.

I don't know why I am getting moisture in my left hearing aid all the time and it makes my hearing aid turn it off by itself. It bother me when it turn the hearing aid off by itself. It makes me think it something wrong with the hearing aid. My right hearing aid hasn't got any moisture at all.
Does this Dry & Store turns the machine off at night when it finish the job? When I look at in the morning to get my hearing aids, I don't see any light on.

The Dry & Store turns itself off after 8 hours. You do have to change the little brick in it every couple of months or when the dot turns light pink since this is what absorbs the moisture.

Had a follow-up visit today to adjust my new HA's. While there I asked if she recommended any particular methods for drying and she just gave me a small canister with a Silica Gel "cube" that you microwave. It looks like a large film canister and there's a sponge that goes over the Silica cube. It's called a "Hearing Aid Saver" by Westone Laboratories, Inc. Hope it works! She said it should last years. I did a quick search online they look like their only about $20. If you're a cheapskate like me this may be a good option. :o

Dry & Store just released a smaller unit called "Zephyr" which has the drying and deodorizing features of the Global and Professional models, but not the germicidal cycle. MSRP is $74.95.

it should be amazing...

I have had a Dry and Store global model, and it has been amazing when it comes to keeping my HAs clean. Now the only thing I would warn you against, is leaving your HA batteries in the Dry and Store. My Audi told me to just open the battery door, and they will be unaffected. However I found out that it shaves a full day of life off the batteries, which is very significant when it comes to the 312s.
now the Dry and Store also has a Dessicant called the Dry-Brik that needs to be replaced every two months (One month if you live in a very humid climate), and you can get them for 11.99 a three pack at Hearing Planet, which I don't think would charge me shipping. However with tax it came to 12.98 and my Audi charges 15.00 for a three pack so I figured I would just get them from her. Especially since I had an appointment that day, so it worked out great.
One other thing is that you don't buy more than six at a time, their shelf life is only a year so any more would be a waste of money.

i believe the price pof the bry brick went up
06-15-2008, 02:46 AM
I think you will find that shelf life is somewhat subjective.
I suspect that that if the bricks are stored in a cool enviroment and remain sealed their SL will be much longer than the manufactuer states.
A bit like a can of sardines with a best before date.
The D&S is a great product and every HA user should own one!
Nothing else compares or competes!
A big waste of money are the dessicant tubs for $20 or so.

you could be right about the shelf life of the bricks, but does anyone really need to purchase more than six of them at at time?

I have a dry and store professional. I am using a a Siemens Centra SP BTE hearing aid.
I was having trouble with moisture in the ear mold tube. I though I might have a bad ear infection, nevertheless, I used a can of dust off to blow the moisture out of the tube for the ear mold. That solved my mosture problem in the tube.
