    Hello clupsnap community I recently had the digi cabi 10L dry box , the sillica pack was pink , i heated it over a stove . I left mid fire , came back in 15 mins , i saw the translucent part (plastic i think) melted . Im here to ask if there is any shops which sells the sillica pack by itself? Thanks

    You might wanna get those jars of silica gel(Available from most camera-related shops for <$5) or upgrade to a dry cabinet.

    Just get a new bottle of silica gel when you run out, they range from $3.50-$5 and last quite a while, so its not that expensive. but in the long run, a dry cabinet is more economic and more reliable

    hardware shops are those shops that sells all your pipes and cables and anything from batteries to mops. If you still not sure what the shop is just try homefix

    Please take care when toasting silica gel.

    A chemical found in some types of silica gel is Carcinogenic and has been claimed to be cancer causing. The ones in question are the ones that look blue when dry, those contain cobalt chloride. Try to get the orange ones if possible.

    A thirsty hippo will work fine, although you can't control humidity. And it's an expensive option since you will need to replace it regularly. Best is to get a dry cabinet.

    i think need to change every 3 months at $3 per pack , it's quite cheap actually
    p.s i keep them inside an "air tight" dry box

    Well its still a lot of trouble trying to maintain the RH with a dry box, with a dry cabinet just set the humidity and no more worries.
