Prevents windscreens from misting up and indicates when it needs to be dried.

The reusable dehumidifier with patented indicator.
With traditional car dehumidifiers, you have to guess when it needs to be dried. However, this one has a patented indicator: If the dot changes colour from light blue to light pink, the granule absorption capacity (approx. 130ml /4.6floz) has been reached. After just 6 minutes in the microwave the dehumidifier is ready to use again.
Reusable as often as required. Perfect for caravans, boats, holiday homes ...
Measures 16 x 10.5 x 3cm (6 1⁄3" x 4" x 1 1⁄5")(W x H x D). Weight approx. 300g (10.6 oz). Fits in any glove box. Non-drip. Can also be dried on a radiator overnight.

Good deal. I use these - find they work well.
How good are these in practise?
bought one recently for my civic that has always suffered from this, put it in the boot and its working well so far.
for this price a few wouldnt hurt to use if they work well.

They get great reviews on Amazon and are always in the top 2-3 best sellers in auto section
I need this. Good find.
Bu99er bought another last week for 4 quid, great product
Even at the £7 on Amazon they are worth it, this price seems really good! It's the sort of product you don't think of buying until you actually get one and then realise you can't do without it!

Saves a lot of misting inside the car and therefore the hassle of demisting when the engine is cold, so interior ice and so on, are virtually eliminated.

These Pingi ones can also be microwaved to restore them which many others can't and also have the useful indicator window. It's quite a small product, about the same footprint as your average 7" tablet and about 2" thick.

I bought one for £7 and found it worked well, but only after a few days to get going.
Bought one for 7 quid, works well.
says £8 on website
Hot! Worth around 8 quid on Amazon.
I have two of these in car and they great for taking excessive moisture in car. just chuck them in microwave for few minutes to dry out after a month or so in car
I've love to get one of these but I have an Audi and was confused by the word indicator, I don't think it's compatible with my car.
Put (clean!) cat litter in an old sock. Works just as well and much cheaper.

Probably doesn't look as nice though unless you've got some colourful old socks...
Crap.
£8 at both asda's near me
Lol paid full price last week.
They're rubbish. Don't last long after been in microwave
I paid full price for mine and have been pretty happy with it.
I've had one for a year and it works very well
Sounds like a good product, will have to get one and at this price u just can't go wrong. Heat from me
Do they work regardless of where you position them, like the boot for example?

​yep....exactly what I done. works really well and don't have to demist my car at all. plus I got pretty girly socks so looks great in my little car.
Bought one for £4 in my local on Saturday.
Love the Audi comment
I got one of these a few months ago from Asda and was only a pound! Anyhow I find these work really well and have already recommended to my friends who get misting problems.

Do you need to change out the cat litter and if so how often please?
Well, if cat litter works, why not turn one of those odd socks left over from the washing machine monster, into a snake or other style of sock hand puppet, filled with cat litter, tied off and placed on your rear parcel shelf? Just an idea. Val Singleton.
Got one of these for the OH to try as she drives a soft top and the condensation in the winter in it was horrendous. Didn't expect much but thought it was worth a punt.

Couldn't believe how well it worked. Well worth it at this price. I got one after seeing how good a job they actually do. Over a year, and numerous microwavings, later, it's still going strong.
Which store did you find OP? Anyone managed to find one??
Have one in my car, works really well. Works best when it's bone-dry so find 'recharging' on the radiator to be more effective than the microwave.

That's exactly what I do, I use the crystal cat litter stuff.

Crystal cat litter is made from dried silica gel just like this product is I imagine so it can be dried out again on a radiator or on a low temperature in the oven for a while. I keep mine on the dash vents along the windscreen so when I have the heater on it drys them back out again in no time.
Can somebody please explain purpose of this and how it works.
I've got a leak/ingress in my car (not something I'm going to get fixed any time soon). Obviously don't expect to solve this but does this just help soak some of the moisture in the air?
As Ron has said, Silca type cat litter in sock does the same job :),
These are great
