Is the hygrometer working correctly? Leave the cabinet door open and note its reading. Should be anywhere from 50-70% in an air-conditioned room, 70-90% otherwise. More humid in rooms with poor ventilation.
And yes, the hygro is working, recently I was clearing my dry cab, I left the door open for too long and it registered 70%.
Also, I keep my flash, batteries and flash battery pack inside.

i think i am gonna sound really stupid but if you put the batteries in will it not leak in the lng run?
If you keep the battery on flash and never turn it on (and flash it several time), it is no use, since it will not maintain the capacitor capacity.
It is not safe to keep the battery if you are not use it for long time (in any electronics device, not just flash, that's mean your camera also). The battery may leak and damage your battery contact point. The cause of leak? It most probably because even not in use, the battery will loose its power (battery itself and slow usage by electronics device in off/sleep mode). And each battery may not have same rate of losing power. When the 'faster loose power' battery have no more power, the 'still have power' battery will negative charging the battery and cause 'faster loose power' battery to leak. Maybe I am wrong, but that make sense for me. The battery also state its expiry date, which I often found expired battery to leak even in its closed package.
