Measuring Humidity: Which Hygrometer to use?
    #4704646 - 09/24/05 12:47 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Analog? Digital? i bought one off of ebay for a discounted price called a CaliberIII, for like 20-25 bucks, which was supposed to yield very high accuracy, and quality results. IT DID, for like a week... then i came home and the display had no numbers on it. At least i know my fruiting chamber works, but my fear was that i had left that hygrometer in there with 99% humidity conditions, which maybe caused moisture to form on the inside or something. anyone experienced this problem? what hygrometers / thermometers do u use that provide longer life? im about to case some shit over the next week, and i gotta research, and order myself, a hygrometer that is going to be accurate on the high end of the spectrum, and that wont crap out after a week of use.

I've yet to read about a decently reliable digital unit. I too bought a digital unit that only worked for a few days inside the growing chamber. I plan to purchase an analog hygrometer soon, but am still looking around for the "right" one... I don't want to keep buying these silly things, I'd rather not end up with a collection of them.
Sorry this isn't terribly helpful, just giving my experience so far!

usually the external sensors are for temp.. but "if you can find a hygrometer with an external humidity sensor, BUY IT"
