    Talking Cheap Cabinet

    I juz went msia and found this camera shop @ jusco Lv3 (It's a famous shopping mall @ JB). I found 41L AIPO analog dry cabinet there for 320rm. The staff discounted it to 280rm for me. Bear in mind that the method of dehumifing is the same (the hot and cold condensing stuff), but the meter reading is an analog. For those with car can go there and get it while stock last. Warrenty is 5 yrs, if you cannot find AIPO dealer in sg, sadly you have to go back to the same shop

    Btw the conversion rate is 100 SGD = 241RM.
    So the price i got in SGD is 280 / 2.41 = 116.18
    41L AIPO for SGD116.18

    I think this is the best place for this good news, if there is a better place, pls help me move it. Thanks in advance mod

    Terbau City is the name of the place....... Jusco is one of its anchor tenants..... take the road towards Kota Tinggi and when you see Carrefour, DO NOT TAKE FLYOVER..... take normal road on left side at ground level.,...... then you can turn into the carpark

    I think the shop name is Mee Too Photo, yellow in color, lots of stuff there, remember to bargain to last drop before close the deal.
    Mee Too is a reputable shop in JB, got a few branches. Worth visiting.

    Yup the shop name is call Mee Too Photo, but the front signboard most obvious is the Kodak photo. Cabinet and accessory is good. But seems to lack the choice in lens as compared to singapore. They seems to have quite a few stuff for lomography as well, Holga and Diana selling there, they even have a full set Diana in a box as well going for 1k rm .

    They are holding two type of dry cabinet, Aipo and Sun-Pak. Juz remember, the new JB Custom need to walk very far, so get a car and drive down if you are getting dry cabinet. I am still having muscle strain carring my cabinet to singapore

    I juz carry everything in the pack. Somehow I dunno why I made it through the custom with no tax. Anyway just dun go there and wave the receipt infront of the officer face . For driver, my friend heard from me and drove there to get his dry cabinet told me, there are no problem with driver.

    Got mine from the shop last nite. I drove thru SG customs that time, they ask me to pay GST. Daily allowance is SG50 without GST, anything above that, will be taxable.

    in the end paid SG4.80 for the excess of SG50. which is 7% on SG70. anyway I paid 290 for it, din bargain much with them also. just take and go.
    anyone got problem with the hydrometer? mine went down to 30% within 2hr. which I think is too low for camera storage. I leave it overnite and turn the setting to "low" but this morning the reading is 40% ( which is still too low, idea shd be 45-55%)

    Depends on how long you stay and how old you are.

    Just went in to JB last weekend.
    Got myself a AIPO 38L digital dry cabinet for RM350.
    It's the same model being sold in Mass Sale.

    Warranty in Malaysia will not cover by Singapore.

    Should there any problem, you have to revert back to Malaysia Shop.

    Thank you.
