Digital, Is it REALLY better?
Ok before everybody tells me what a dumb*** I am, I am not advocating for or against. I currently own 11 digital and 1 analog hygrometers (mostly xikar) and I know that most people completely rely on them, so do I. I use one of the Boveda Kit's to calibrate. The analog I have was factory equip when the Humi was purchased in 98 I didn't have a clue did not even know what humidity I was supposed to maintain and quickly gave up. Nine months ago I was reintroduced to the Leaf properly and my journey began. I dusted off the old Humi, acquired a new one and shortly after was given another one both with digital, the old analog was 1% off. Three months ago I re-calibrated and found variations from 1% to 3% off with all the digitalis, the analog is still 1% off. I have read several post that seem to suggest that it is somewhat common for the digitalis to be off this much or more after a similar time frame. I know they can be reset. My analog cannot the only thing I have done was to abuse it, It has survived a couple of very rough moves and still is only 1% off after 15 years. So is digital Really Better? I know there are people on here who have been at this a long time, What do you think?
