    Default Electronic Drybox - Maintainance Free?

    Just wondering if experts out there know whether electronic drybox (e.g. Digi CAbi etc...) needs any maintainance or am I supposed to just let it sit there and happily suck all the moisture away as long as the meter shows that it is 'sucking' well?

    I heard that there may be some 'foam' thing that is supposed to be changed. And if so, after how many years?

    Just got myself a electronic digital dry box (after years of using Secondary school-boy method of dehumidifying my equipments i.e. silica gel, air-tight box etc...).

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks

    I have an akurui cabinet for 4 years now. Basically, its on 24 hours, even when I am overseas for weeks. Have not done any maintenance yet. I just check the humidity level, and make sure its about 45%

    Yup, it's easier to maintain than a fridge.

    I have a two door "Toyo living" for 6 years housing my film slr and p&s.
    I seldom open the doors, as seldom shoot film for quite some time.

    Recently bring one point & shoot out, and it has dust on it.
    Wonder how the dust can get into it. The seals are leaky??
    Power is always on though...

    I don't think the manual got stated much on the maintainance.
    Internal I think no much need to be done.
    Just wipe off the dust external expecially around the fins area on the cabi back.
