Frozen Boveda ?

Sooooooooooo, let's say a n00b (who quite certainly couldn't be me....... Or anyone I know........ Or happened in my house......) accidentally left a Boveda pack in a zip lock bag when freezing a recently acquired stash of sticks. Is it fubar now ? It thawed and feels fine, just like other ones, but has it lost its humidity control properties ?

Good question. I doubt anyone knows the answer. Stick it in a Ziplock with a hygrometer and let us know, eh guinea pig?

I would email Boveda directly and see if they've seen what happens to one of their packs when it freezes

It's only water and salt inside.
I'll bet 5 delicious cigars, it'll be fine.

OK, I e-mailed Boveda on behalf of my "acquaintance" who had this unfortunately mishap. Let's see what they say.

Unfortunately I don't have a spare hygrometer right now Otherwise the ziplock bag test would be ideal.

Good thread. I've wondered about this myself actually since I need to order a few Bovedas soon and with the cold winter coming I was worried about what happens if they froze during transport.

I did grab (what I thought were) my preferred RH% of Boveda last week at my B&M but the idiot (and I'm assuming new) employee behind the counter screwed up and gave me two 62% Bovedas instead of 69% ones.

So I guess the 62's will either go in my travel humi or more likely a ziploc bag if I have overflow or just need to bring a few sticks somewhere and don't feel like carrying my travel humi.
