    I ordered from DealExtreme #sku.35061. US$5.90 with free shipping. Bought 2 after reading reviews. They have many uses including checking if your dry box is within range, if your fridge is cold enough but not freezing when storing medicine, outdoors when you know its too hot and humd, indoor for air quality (cool enough, not too dry).

    Shouldn't be accuracy your main concern?
    And even if you state 'reasonable' as your criteria, different people have different opinions about what is a reasonable price.
    Google for salt test, it will help you to determine whether the hygrometer is accurate or not. If not, you will know the amount of inaccuracy and can use it 'off-set' when reading the hygrometer.

    Try the guitar shops at Peninsula. Owners of high end acoustic guitars are very particular about humidity level for storage of these guitars.

    price is about $20 plus for a decent digital one. Their accuracy should be +/- 5%. if you want a super precise one, then no way it will be cheap.

    I think with +/- 5% accuracy, good enough for camera device.

    Ebay selling at S$8+. Though you have to wait quite long (few weeks) before the item will arrive since now it holidays seasons...

    Try looking at the following URL:

    Just to update on my hygrometer which was bought from ebay... It cost S$8 (inclusive of shipment cost). It is excellent... Cheap and good (has thermometer, clock, alarm and digital hygrometer). Worth buying.
