    Will update when I get home this evening.
    60% is all right
    even 65% is okie.

    but not more...if u on aircon every night...humidity is some where 65-70%. sg humidity = 80% any time.. rainy days 89%!

    Was reading some of the threads here at CS, some people get them at Sim Lim Tower basement shops, don't know about photo shops if they do sell these hygrometers

    For those using hippo....just a word of caution,

    cos i was a fellow hippo user....wats the point of getting a digi cabinet when i got like 3 lens and a body and some flash etc...

    then one day the hippo somehow not feeling thirsty anymore n started vomiting. I might have toppled it accidentally when i close the cupboard...next min when i discover...water was everywhere....

    thank god...it didnt hurt any of my item...but that was the time i felt a need for dry cabi...

    yes, no doubt a hippo cost only $2++ but it nearly cause me a few thousands..
    not taking the risk again....
