About a new toner cartridge
Do not take a new toner cartridge out of the protective bag until it is ready to be used.
About condensation
Even when toner cartridges are stored within the recommended humidity range, water droplets may form on the inside or outside of the cartridges when moved to an environment with a sudden change in temperature or humidity. The formation of water droplets is called condensation.
Condensation will adversely affect the quality of toner cartridges.
