    my experience on Li ion batteries is they usually don't hold charge well when it is new, they will preform at peak after sometime, and I will recharge them to full after each used, even it is only less than 25% used.

    hmmm,
    Agree with hotwork77, please get a second hygrometer for verification. The inside should feel slightly colder than outside. Reason is: the cold side of the drier unit will cool down the inside air a little bit. The temperature difference between inside and outside is 2 degrees at maximum.
    But again: this does not affect the battery charge and self-discharge at all. For long-term storage of your battery charge it fully and put it into fridge (not freezer).

    Yes...looks like I need to buang the Chiong to get the real stuff.
    Need to go SLR to get the original.

    Strange...must go check with a new hygrometer...better shift all my gear back to the old Cabi where its cooler. Problem is I didn't send in the warranty card for the free gift Cabi.


    Thanks guys. I believe my freebie Cabi is in trouble churning out so much heat and the reading is at 60-70% at 30-31 degrees!!!

    Doesn't matter. Just bring the card along when you go and see their service center.

    That rather looks as if it not working at all...
