    I'm using Akarui too. Been using it for more 2 years. I would advise that you buy a bigger size than what you need now. You must allow room for expansion, if not you'll find that you need to buy a bigger one again a few years down the road.

    I'm considering purchasing a dry cabinet at the moment, and have come across the same CP ad yesterday.

    I may be wrong, but seems to me the Akarui ones are more expensive than Digi-Cabi? Any reason(s) for this?

    Thanks!

    Think the Akuri ones have better quality compared to Digi-Cabi. The Akuri ones looks way nicer compared to my Digi-Cabi. Maybe mine was a cheapo version I guess.

    You may want to consider checking the digicabi promotion digihub has here.

    30L for $99. It may not be as good as Akarui, but i tink it serves it's purpose at a more economical volume : price ratio.

    Cheers

    The cheapest dry box is a plastic tub with a cover and a Thirsty Hippo inside it... <S$20. Apply some silicone sealant or hot melt glue as gasket.

    I'm using one right now to store my camera bags, because it too is susceptible to fungus, and I already have an Akarui Digi dry cabinet to store the camera body and lenses.

    If I am not wrong, digi cabi for the size of 40 liter and above, its free delivery to your place within Singapore.

    Thinking of getting another cabinet, the AHC series for the digital &#37;RH control vs. an analog reading and having to base the setting on a trial & error method.
