It may get too dry for your electronic equipments, especially those with moving parts like a camera and lenses.

Including your lenses? Besides, the rubber parts of your stuff might dry up/crack after a prolonged period of being in an environment that is too dry. :sweat:

These are expensive in the long run because they take a whole lot more power and are not as effective. It's basically a heating tube.
