    You probably have to observe the reading for a few days and adjust high or low humidity to find the right position for the switch.

    how to increase the range? Just want to clarify that it's a dry box not dry cabinet. Is there any switch or something to adjust the range? Thanks.

    Get a dry cabinet... small one will do if you don't have a lot of equipment. Save you the hassle of replacing the drying agent, and it can be turned on all the time. Also, allows you to adjust humidity... personally, I think 45% is just nice.

    Probably the cause why the humidity is low because i replaced the original silica gel with the gel from dehumidifier. Just read from other forum that using dehumidifier is not advisable. Planning to buy a silica gel on monday or tueday. Thanks so much.
