Hi Experts,
im a newbie trying to find a Dry Cabinet.
I see there are 2 versions of Dry Cabinets. AD series and DHC series.
My question is which is one is easier to use?
I will be opening my cabinet on weekends.
And my room is humid, no aircon.

I see a brand called Aipo selling 30L DHC for $180.
I dont mind digicabi which is a bit more expensive cos i rather have a trusting brand.
Price not that bad as this will be an investment that will last for years, i hope.

What do u guys think? Is the DHC series worth the buy?

Thanks!

What i mean is the 30L DHC series , which has Digital Humidify Controller.
The AD series is about $80.
Digi-cabi DHC series is $200+

So, should i get a DHC?

There is a huge difference between the DHC and AD.

I currently have an AD50.
The only way to control the humidity is by controlling the temperature.
basically higher temperature = lower humidity.

with AD series. I find it hard to get the right humidity.
It keeps changing. Sometimes 40% and sometimes 35% and back.
especially when i open the dry cabinet and close it after taking out the equipment.
(is it just my dry cabinet or are others having this problem too?)

if i'm not wrong, the DHC series you can adjust the humidity straight away.
I WOULD KILL TO HAVE THAT.
hahaha.

so yeah. i would recommend the DHC if you can afford it.
my 2 cents.

Is it true that a higher temp = lower humidity?
I have a thinking that a lower temp = lower humidity,which is based on psychrometric chart for air properties.

Or am i confused?
Could somebody help?

Yeah, I had been using that for 2 months already. Very good :thumbsup:
You might want to consider a bigger size or maybe later ?

I read some people are saying that the Aipo power adapter tends to give problem after a while ?
