    Not wise...

    you wanna skimp on this for the sake of a few k worth of equipment??

    In SG, our humidity is very high... 70 - 80%... worth the risk? up to you..

    Agree with Zac08. Buy the one that you can control the power (humidity) level...

    Hope this is help.

    It may get too dry for your electronic equipments, especially those with moving parts like a camera and lenses.

    Including your lenses? Besides, the rubber parts of your stuff might dry up/crack after a prolonged period of being in an environment that is too dry.

    These are expensive in the long run because they take a whole lot more power and are not as effective. It's basically a heating tube.
