Planet Waves Humidipak is the only maintenance free, two-way humidity control system for guitar. It automatically maintains the optimal 45-50% relative humidity level within your instrument case, eliminating the guesswork and potential mess related to refilling a humidifier. Unlike refillable humidifiers, the Humidipak system provides true "two-way" purified humidity control by adding and removing moisture on demand. No more manual adjustments based on seasonal changes, geographic locations, temperature, or other factors. The Humidipak Kit comes with 3 Humidipaks and a soft mesh pouch that will not harm your instrument's finish. Humidipaks last between 2 and 6 months and should always be kept in a sealed environment like a hard-shell case. Once the Humidipaks become firm, discard and replace using the 3 refills that come in the Planet Waves Humidipak Replacement Pack (PW-HPRP-03). This all new, reformulated, patented, two-way humidification system maintains 45-50% relative humidity which eliminates all maintenance and guesswork. this system is recommended by taylor guitars and others for maintaining the stability and playability of your instrument.

Other than that these seem to work fine. For people who are in dry places the problem of these running out soon can be solved using a home-made humidifier ( can be anything, wet foam in a small box with holes or even a wet cloth placed in plastic/polythene bag). Place both in an airtight container (without touching each other) and the humidipacks will absorb extra moisture coming from your home-made one and will, effectively get refilled and will last longer.
Also, for effective usage on really dry guitars, covering the sound hole with some impenetrable sheet will make the humidification process faster.
The only downside is the size of the pouch given to place the humidipacks.

I live in Texas. Up until a couple of years ago, I blissfully assumed that low humidity was a problem for those in the desert, not here in the Lone Star State. I was wrong. Dead wrong. After experiencing the folly of my ways with one guitar experiencing a reverse bow on the neck, and a prized Martin with a crack in the top, from sound-hole to bridge, I got serious about hydration. But the traditional sponge-in-a-can method encourages you to set-and-forget, not realizing that forgetting turns to neglect all to easily. Do that a few times, and you're tempted to over-fill, and end up with water damage - or worse.
After purchasing a hygrometer, I soon discovered that ignorance is NOT bliss, when it comes to relative humidity. Since I've been tracking it, I've discovered that if your guitars crave a relative humidity of between 40 and 50%, you're not gonna get it in Texas from the time it turns cold to the time it warms up in the spring. Not gonna happen. The humidity in my music room hasn't risen above 30% in the last three months. That's a slow suicide for your fretted string instruments. But the Planet Waves Humidipak system will fix all that. Designed to slowly release moisture in your guitar case, it gives your guitars what they crave, without breaking the bank. Even better, it's easy to tell when it's time to replace the packs. When they've gone from a gel-like feel to crystals, it's time for new packs. Or if you're cheap (like me) seal them in a Tupperware container next to (not touching) a sponge full of water...you can rehydrate them and reuse them at least a couple of times.
If you care about your instruments and don't want to face expensive repair bills, get the Planet Waves Humidipak system. Your guitars will thank you for it.
I guess shame on me for not checking all of the 7 packages at the same time. So make sure that you check to see if the packets AND the fabric pouches are there as well.
