    Alternatively, calibrated industrial equipment for higher prices have confirmed accuracy.

    It definitely cost 100 times less then whatever smartphone you are using.

    If you can afford smartphone, u can afford to pay for power consumption

    Someone already calculated the power usage of a typical cabinet to be 80 cents per month. How much is your phone?

    I'm not talking that the energy consumption of a phone. I'm talking abt the price of the phone.

    If people can buy phone at prices of $600-1000, they shouldn't be eve worried abt 80 cents electricity cost for dry cabinet.

    I'm using xiaomi which only cost $100+, so I'm not in this group. Lol

    her question is about the energy consumption of a dry cabinet, not the price of a dry cabinet. :-)

    Nope. Especially if u factor in the comparisons of using silicon or thirsty hippo as an alternative and the value of your equipment
