I use them in several guitars. Instead of in a hard box, they are in two little cotton bags (2" long) which in turn are in fleece bags connected by a ribbon, allowing me to drape them over the strings and into the body cavity.

They last far longer than other hydrators that I've used (green guitar snakes, Kyser, Planet Waves, Oasis....) and are easy to tell when they need water - they feel like individuals little jellies, then even later, start to get crunchy. There is one drawback - if you want to call it that. They lake much longer to rehydrate, which of course provides an excuse to play some while I am waiting.
