    If you do notice, each lens box usually comes with a pack of silica beads. Helps to remove moisture. Besides those shops are usually in air-con room which reduces moisture by quite a bit. I dun feel a need to worry.

    Do u know funan's challenger operates 24/7? Unless they have their own air-con system, I think the mall's air-con should be still in operation. Not too sure abt the rest but I dun think it's a huge problem.

    How do you get in if challenger is on the top floor? Have to walk up a flight of escalators?

    as long as the air is dry, even there is no air con, the fungus always won't grow.

    the air con running for more than 12 hrs, and their stocks turnover is very fast, don't have too worry so much.

    No worries man, if fungus grew so easily many shops would have gone out of business and Digital imaging companies would have to ship their products out in dry cabs or dry boxes rather then cardboard boxes ! haha

    Even dry cabs are not drying the air 24x7. Once target humidity is reached, the dehumidifier will turn off.
