Humidity and Electricty in my PMP
    #3293678 - 10/29/04 02:38 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Someone posted a really cool setup of their PMP that had a small hole cut in the top, with an extension cord coming through with two night lights plugged into it. I like the idea, but am curious:

1. Is that safe to have open plugs (if only 2 of the 3 ext. cord outlets were used) inside a chamber with 100%+ RH? There is condensation on the sides (not dripping), but it's very moist in there, and I'm not sure how good an idea that is.

2. I have them in a clear plastic rubbermaid bin with a non-transparent lid... Would putting a lamp next to them on one side give them enough light?

Thanks, as always, in advance... I'm very close to being done, and have really enjoyed this experience and appreciate everyone's help.

you could cut a hole in the top and put in some plexiglass
or if your worried about saturating the electrical, plug your cord
into a GFI to be safe

thanks. think it'd probably be cheaper to just do the plexiglass setup anyways.

condensation would definitely build up and could be dangerous, best to not do that but if you do get a gfi ( ground fault interrupter ) just a few bucks at a hardware store, and unplug the thing before you touch it, better yet dont do it. building it safe and right, and it will make way less hassle for you in the long run.
