    Default dry cab

    guys, just also need a quick answer, heres my concern -
    before i go to work or leaving, im turning the power off of my dry cab, then turning it on again when i get back (im doing it everyday), im worried because it might consumed lots of electricity or a short circuit might happen when leaving a dry cab 24/7, any advice?? thankz in advance

    My advice. Leave it on.

    1) Check your manual, the cabinet doesn't consume lots of electricity.
    2) The cost of items you are protecting in the cabinet costs many times more (my assumption) than the electricity bill.

    Not to worry. Your house refrigerator will probably consume more power and it is running 24/7.
    When the dry cabinet reaches the preset humidity level it should auto cut off the power to save electricity.

    33% too low, set between 45-55%

    Are you sure? I thought only certain types of dry cabinet do the auto power cut off.
