it should remain inside the bag. i suggest place it inside an air tight container just the right size for the phone. a bigger container means a longer time for the silica gel to work... or it means you need more silica gel.

I'm currently using a 750ml container for my iphone plus 20 silica gel packs. ok na kaya yun?  wala akong hygrometer eh.

IMO ilagay mo mismo yung phone sa bigas. lalo na kung nalublob talaga sya ng buo hehe.
prob sa iphone hindi natatangal battery so mahirap talaga pag nahulog sa tubig

OT on the iphone topic: pwede ba ilagay sa drybox yung battery ng camera at memory cards? hassle kasi na tuwing nilalagay ko sya sa box tinatangal ko pa battery at memory card.

salt water/ tubig dagat ba ang pinag hulugan? may nabasa ako na pag sa tubig dagat nahulog e dapat ilublub mo ulit sa fresh water kasi para mahugas yung mga elemento ng dagat

Hi guys, may tanong ako for those that have a Eureka Dry Cabinet. I just bought a Eureka DX-76 from Aperture trading. I know the lights in both the front and back are supposed to turn off if it reaches your desired humidity setting.  I tried setting the box to the medium setting since that's the setting recommended for cameras and lenses.
 
However, the lights at the back and inside the unit won't turn on even if the relative humidity on the hygrometer is above 70%. Do the lights immediately turn on in your Eureka dry cabinets if it rises above your desired humidity range or is there something wrong with my dry cabinet? The lights at the back and inside of the unit only turn on if I have the  humidity setting set to high.

Yes, it will make your dry box work harder unless the AC is on 24/7

have you tried bringing your Iphone sa Greenhills?  many technicians there are better than official Apple resellers.  you just have to select carefully.

Sorry for the OT; just need an answer quickly.
 
@mikeve, thanks for the tip on iPhone repair in Greenhills. I'll be bringing an iPhone there for repair. My 3 year old drenched it with water.
 
Does anyone know which technician in Greenhills is good and where can I find him? I assume the good ones are somewhere in V-Mall on the 3rd floor. But where exactly, please?

Need ko pala makapunta sa Ace Hardware para makabili marami desiccants. Wala pa ako dry box and nakatago lang gears ko sa bag na may tiny winnie desiccant. Wala naman nagiging fungus or molds.

Help:

Pero meron ako isang problem meron ako minsan nakikita maliit na maliit na white insect sa gear ko kaya inilalabas ko un camera and tinatanggal un mga small insect. Gawa rin ba yung ng moisture? Kapag tinago ko ng matagal sa bag nagkakaroon kaya ginawa ko pina-arawan ko maigi yung bag ko para mamatay if meron pa natitirang insekto. Sa ngayon wala pa naman ako nakikita ulit sa camera ko. Meron na ba naka-experience nito?

Thank you,

I find it's difficult to get a dry box here in Subic.
So the best option is using LocknLock box and the electrical heat silica gel.
Now, where can I get a hygrometer to check it's humidity inside the box?

@aperture: can you send me an email about dry box you have for sale? yulianusl@yahoo.com

yulianusl, if you can't come to metro manila, I think Aperture Trading is willing to ship a dry box to you.

but  shipping will be expensive for sure....at least P1,000 based on the dimensions and weight of the drybox so it won't come out cost effective anymore.

Yes, grimmy this is true. Shipping will probably be that much at least. However, it might be worth it for peace of mind and protection of lenses which usually cost more than the dry cabinet.

I just found a solution.
I bought locknlock box(around 500peso), get my electric heated silica gel charge(bought it in Indonesia), and a hygrometer from Japan Home(88 peso).
Now I can leave all my gear inside the box without worrying about the humidity.
The hygrometer stays at 50 for almost 1 week.
Problem solved!

most preferably wala na sa pouch
1. the pouch may contain additional moisture
2. you can save space in your drybox

^i put the flash pouch in the box. even the camera strap. reason is because it does have additional moisture, therefore putting it in to remove the moisture from the pouch.

after a day's shoot hygrometer reaches 60-70 even if the electronic silica is full charge, after all silica turns pink i just charge it again until it goes down to 40-50

tanong ko lang. sinasama nyo ba sa box ang camera batteries, AA/AAA's and SD / CF cards?
