    My AD-060 is using HD series' dehumidifying unit, even at 9 o'clock position still drop...maybe absorbing too fast.

    There's also something called 'dry stick'...a heat generating stick that you can put inside you normal container or what so ever.

    Cheap alternative to a dry cabinet.

    So you can do a trick by powering off the dry-cab for few hours, to save power and maintain humidity around 40-50%RH .

    Put timer switch is better.

    I think u better call digihub and inform them....IMO if possible, 'insist' for 1 to 1 exchange since u bought less than a week and yours claimed to latest 'model' (if I remember)....

    Change to existing type with red and green LEDs...at least it is consistent for my AD-60...

    Are you sure there is an auto cut off once the RH inside reach certain level? That's feature is distinguish between pro and non-pro model. Non-pro model (cheaper one) doesn't have that feature. Are you reading that from the manual? Or just hear from the seller?

    There is always a way to extend or get more power outlet from single outlet. You can use power strip or splitter 1-2, 1-3 .
