    I just ran the salt test in a well-sealed jar with my Caliber IV digital. After 18 hours, the reading was a steady 77%. According to the Caliber IV's instructions, however, the Boveda calibration kit is the only proper test method; they insist that the salt method is unreliable (I don't know...

    I currently purchased the Caliber III electronic hygrometer but I have done the salt test on it and it comes out at 70% and there is no way to re calibrate it like the other that has a dial. I am going to the cigar shop today to buy the Bovida calibration kit and try that (maybe my salt test is...

    I just got through reading the manual and it warns: "DO NOT perform the salt test" There are 2 buttons but no instructions on how to adjust the humidity readout on the unit. Do these really not need to be calibrated?:suspicious:

    So, I just got my Caliber III hygro in the mail today and am wondering how long it needs to be in the tupperdor before I should expect an accurate RH reading?

    Has any one ever read the sheet of paper that comes with Western Caliber III? It says to not do a salt test on the device. Why?

    I recently purchased 2 Caliber III digital hygrometers for my Edgestar. I placed both in a Boveda Calibration packet that is ~ 1 month old. After 36 hours, one is reading 70% RH and the other is reading 69% RH. Do you think that it is more likely that the Boveda kit is having trouble...

    I must have a dozen or so of these devices around. Most are probably a year and a half old. I decided to take two of them at random, and do a salt test on them, to see how calibrated they are. The last time I checked them about a year ago, I posted a thread, and used a...

    I unpacked my new caliber 3 hygrometer. I am still not sure what buttons 1 and 2 are for? Does it give off an alarm when temps/humidity get to high or low according to personal settings? I did not set anything but once temps went up when pressing button, another time down. Can I just disregard...

    I noticed that no matter where I placed my desktop humidor, I could not get a constant temperature and RH reading no matter how long I left it there. I have had my Caliber III in the salt test for about 27 hours now and it is still at 79% RH. The RH while it was in the humidor would always...

    here's my situation: I just purchased my first humidor and a Western Caliber III Hygrometer/Thermometer to go with it. When I opened the hygro the directions said it came "pre-calibrated" and that there is no need for a salt test and in fact, there is no button to calibrate it should you want...

    Quick question for those of you who own one of these. Have you salt tested this hygro even though the instructions have told you not to? Will this affect its performance?? Thinking of doing so just to verify its accuracy.

    Since the company doesnt reccommend the salt test and they are non adjustable anyway, I did a quick test of 4 of the caliber 3,s that I have. I put them all on the bottom of a half filled 100 cound humidor. Two on the left side, and two on the right side, in the front, so I could see...

    I've read that these are the best, and I've done some legwork to find one near Los Angeles to no avail. I've seen it cheapest on ebay for $20 + shipping though but I do prefer to buy it from around me. Anyone from SoCal know of a place that sells on?

    What was I thinking ordering items from people other then heartfelt and cigarmony. WHAT WAS I THINKING, some one tell me... so I ordered it from someone else and when it got here, it was acting all funky. I paid 29 bucks for it. The caliber 3 turned on and off when it felt like it. So I...

    I just got a HygroSet but I'm not too sure about it's accuracy, and as I'm returning the other thing i bought (Cigar Oasis Ultra: Total garbage IMO), i've been considering returning this too. As I was calibrating it with the Boveda Kit (maybe the Boveda was the problem?) I noticed that after 24...

    I have noticed a lot of questions latley about which brand of digital hygrometer to use so I decided to tell everyone about the Western Caliber III and why I think it is the best choice to go with. All cigar enthusiasts ask which hygrometer they should trust to monitor thier prized cigar...

    I just received my new (and first) Caliber III. Wonder why they don't want you to perform a salt test. Big letters - NO! Run from folks that tell you to.
