    First post, though, I've been lurking around here for some time. :) Sorry if this has been covered, I've searched the forums but to no avail. I ordered a new 100ct humidor that will be here this afternoon as well as a 4 oz jar of HumiCare Crystal Gel that I planned on keeping in the humidor...

    I'm too cheap to buy a Boveda calibration kit when I have a humi-care pillow and even the simple salt test to calibrate my hygrometer. But I don't want to use the salt test because I have a digital hygrometer and I'm pretty sure that isn't good for it. So my question is whether or not a...

    Anyone else have this problem... After removing it from the bag (salt test) i try and adjust the dial to 75% but the slightest turn (one click) makes it flucuate by about 10-15%. Sometimes a click doesn't change it at all. After a couple minutes i can get it near 75% just by trial and error...

    Got a quick question about my Hygrometer, when I take my hygrometer out of the humidor it takes it quite a while to adjust to the rooms RH. Is this something that is common? I wanted to test it today so I pulled it out of my humidor and left it on the counter in my kitchen and it was reading...

    So, I've set up my wine fridgeador, and I have a Humi-Care humidifier (a rebranded Hydra). I got it to 65%, but the Humi-Care keeps running out of water within a day, and then the humidity drops. I've read that usually this happens when the calibration is set all the way down, but mine isn't...

    In one of my humidors I have a Humi-care 4 oz jar that I got from CI. I've been using it for about 1-2 months and have loved it. It has always kept my humidity right at 70 but today when I opened up my humidor it was at 80!? My house is kept at 40% Humidity and has been the entire time, I can't...

    I have a somewhat old humidor that my dad gave me (college budget, y'know), with a sponge that you velcro to the top for the humidification. I think everything's going smoothly, but I don't have a hygrometer so I can't check, and wouldn't mind having something extra. I just got cigars in the...

    I have a Humi-Care XG1000 Pro and I just saw 4 small mold pockets. Does any one know of an anti-fungal that I can add to the distilled water to prevent mold from gowing? I seam to remember that you should not use Propylene Glycol in these devices and I do not like the idea of using chemicals but...

    I just got the humi-care electronic humidifier, I have never have an electronic humidifier before and some tips could help. I am not sure wether the reading on the humidifier if a reading of the RH or wether thats what I have it set to stay at. Also do you guys run the extra fan or 2 throughout...

    K, so for my small humi, and my current coolerdor, I have beads. However, as a Valentine's day gift, the wife is giving me a new cooler, (for a coolerdor) and a jar of the Humi-care crystal gel. Anyone have any opinions on it? Will it work well? Pretty sure she ordered the 65% RH. I know...
  15. Want to Sell/Trade (WTS)
    I bought this and have used it for about two months. It has been charged once with distilled, deionized water and is in as-new condition. Works great, but I don't need it anymore. FYI, this has the same footprint as the sponge-boxes in 75-200 ct humidors, but is filled with the propylene...

    I spotted this item in the CI catalogue that came to my house today: http://www.cigarsinternational.com/prodDisp.asp?item=M-HMC08&cat=10 I know it's back ordered, but is it just me or does this thing look just like a Hydra? The only difference seems to be the color and the LOWER price. The...

    This thing here http://www.cigarsinternational.com/prodDisp.asp?item=M-HMC06&cat=10 If you receive one of these, my advice is to a) throw it away or b) break it open and fill it with beads. Why? I followed the instructions that accompanied it on how to hydrate it. They said to submerge it in...

    Hey ya'll, Let me preface by saying that I've only been using this product for 8 days so this is hardly a definitve review. I wouldn't even post this in all fairness but I've never had results this poor with good ole cheapo Floral/Oasis foam. Long story short I bought a jar of this...

    Hey Everyone, I currently have a humidor that holds about 15 cigars and am running out of room! I have been looking into new humidors and will probably pick up a 100ct humidor. I am currently using the humi-care 2oz crystal jar to maintain the cigars. How many humi-care jars would you...
