5 years? 10 years? If your cam got fungus even using the dry cabi (even the hygrometer insdie shows 40%) , will the dry cabinet maker compensate you?

Dry cabinets can last ages. My old one (changed it only 'cos it was too small) was more than 10 years old when I sold it off.

Many dry cabinets come with 5yr warranty.

Good Question.

I have Digicabi which is about a year old. Interestingly it makes cracking noise once in a while but still surviving. I am not sure how long it last though it has 5 yrs of warranty !

My dry cabinet has so far been working since 1996. 11 years and still running. Dry boxes almost never fail but their efficiency, i.e. drying down speed, reduces over time. One way to compensate if you do not wish to change is to put in those reuseable dry packs that you can plug in to dry off then put them into the dry box for use.

Using my dry cabinet since 1989.

Dun think there's anything to maintain.
Mine has a analog hygrometer. Zero battery change required. :thumbsup:
