    Hahaha! I was quite shock too, because he told me that the one without light no stock, then he said he will charge the same price for the ML series.

    Can you guarantee the humidity in it is controlled?

    Some say 40-45% while others say 45-50%.So anywhere between 40-50% will do

    There is a knob whereby you have to turn here and there before getting the desired humidity level.

    In time you will get the desired humidity level, no worries. It just takes time.

    Ah, Sorry if I may sound bad, but all is kind of mislead and quite confusing. There are 2 type of drybox which I agree, but they should not be named as analog and digital. But it should have been called as one with feedback control and the other should be without feedback control. As both of them are using the same dehumidifier, but the main difference is in the way the humidity level is set.

    The one with feedback circuitry, through the hydrometer will be able to control the switching on, off, increase or reducing the dehumidify level as per different conditions. As the name suggest it has a feedback loop from the hydrometer which signals to the dehumidifier to act according to the requirement.

    For the non feedback set u need to set the intensity of the dehumidifier at a constant level such that the desired level is reach. As there is no feedback loop so the dehumidifier is on 100% of the time. There is no control over the level ( cannot on, off, more less) other than by setting the intensity and let it run till an equilibrium level is form.

    Cheers Just my 2 cents.

    my experience with my dry box(with silica gel) usualy on normal singapore room temperature i've measured the amount of the silica gel to give me 50% humidity but when i turn on the aircon(27 degree) at night it'll drop to max 40% so i keep this arrangement for my dry box and i feel it's good enough
