Please browse and search the forum. The questions is discussed several times per week. Since there are several models and sizes of dry cabinets the average price across all of them wouldn't help much.

The dry cabinet uses electricity to run and most probably will stay in your home if you have one. The humidity level can be adjusted accordingly to your preference and you just need to adjust it once and it will stay at that humidity level. The cheapest dry cabinet will cost around 100 dollars. I am currently using one by digi-cabi and bought it from MS Color.

I have never used a dry box before and I believe you need to put in silica gel and replace them regularly to ensure that the humidity within your box is at the optimum level.
