I went to Carrefour @ Plaza Sing and John 3:16 @ Funan.
I saw 2 versions of dry cabinet there. One is the electronic display inside the cabinet (top right behind glass door) and the other is with the electronic display on top of the cabinet. Other than price differences, what advantages and limitations each cabitnets have?
analog means that you just suka adjust the dial, and then based on the meter to agar if it is correct.
digital just means, i dial in % humidity, then the dry cabinet happily handle everything for you.
i find analog ok mar, but of course digital need to chup less.

the fungus doesn't go "oh, you use analog dry cabinet and your humidity is not exactly at 47%, so I'll infest your camera equipment!"
heheheh as long as it's dry and inhospitable for the fungus, their growth will be significantly slowed.
Hey...fungus still fester and grow whether got dry cabi or not. The only diff is when we use more, it won't grow so fast. See all those 3.5 inch diskettes lying in the dry cabi...its growing some green carpet already. Anyway I solve the problem by adding mothballs.
My dry cabinet finally arrived. Its not an AIPO but a Digi-Cabi DHC-40. I got it at John 3:16. I have set the RH to 45% and everything is working well. The reading is at 45% and 30°c.
I have one concern though. The red LED seems to be always on and the power was never cut off even when the desired RH was achieved.
The cabinet arrived at 11am and was turned on until now. Could there be problems with the electronics?

the red led i think will always be on and it also indicate that the power is on. the diode will need to be kept on to maintain the RH level. someone pls correct me if i'm wrong.
I will get a 33L cabinet this weekend. Guys, for dry cabinet, is the electrical pub bills high ??
yet to buy my dry cabinet.. currently just put my camera in the EOS bag with the silica gel.. thinking to get it this week end or may be after another weak. is it ok?
Canon Kiss X4 | 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS II Kit lens | 50mm f1.8
I just bought a big plastic container and put in a thirsty hippo and my camera and lense.
$10 is what it takes..
Second,if you don't have a hygrometer,how are you gonna control the RH inside your container?(Don't you dare ask back where to get hygrometer.Go and search!)
Third,1 lens=LENS.2 or more lens=LENSES.No such word called lense!
Lastly,thirsty hippo cannot be recycled.After one year,you'll find out that you had spent more on buying thirsty hippos than having a dry cabinet
