    Storing electronics and other tools

    (related to a post I made about storing guns) I will be buying tools, electronics and other non-perishable supplies over the next four years, while planning for my trip back to the U.S.. Can these things be put into a large mylar bag and sealed with something like a seal a meal - and dessicated gel? I am especially concerned about electronics, like a ham radio, or electric tools.

    Silicone desiccant absorbs the moisture in the package and helps cut down on corrosion, etc. Mylar bags or other polyester bags are the best and most soft plastics (baggies, ziplocks, etc.) are the worst for allowing water vapor to penetrate.
    Jeep and Sharkbait like this.
    I really want one of these!Hidden Content
