Thats the correct value ;) Do note that the hygrometer does not give a 100% correct reading, so for me I just set it at 45% to be safe on both side.

$150 I think. Anyway.. u should have got the at least the 50 or 60L one.. warranty is 5 yrs.. and if u are really into this hobby.. 30L sure filled up very fast one.

tongpang the thread.

whats the different between AD and DHC series?

I know AD series use Hygrometer and DHC use Digital Humidity Controller. but exactly what benefit does the Digital Humidity Controller have over Hygrometer to justify the price different?

TIA.

just get the air tight container and silica gel. haha. cheapest i believe. I have loads of them dunno if they're thrown away though. =D
IMHO, drycabinet is more viable in the long term ... no need the hassle of worrying or changing the gel. U can store impt documents in it too. :)

DHC - Set it at the RH% that you want and it will always maintain at that set level irregardless of any changes to the load inside and any temperature changes to the room.

AD - After setting the RH% it will still fluctuate according to the ambient temperature of the room and the load inside, therefore require some manual fine tunning from time to time.

Hope that helps ;)
