    Hey all, So I got me one of the small round 5 or 6 cigar humidor for traveling. I am quite new to cigars and only plan to have them for a month or so before smoking em'. Question is though, the hygrometer is a POS that came with it and its analog. Tried the salt test but unsure if its accurate...

    I bought a 12 Pack of 72% Boveda® humidification packs (which is 4x as much as my humidor needs) With these being as accurate as they are do I still need a Cigar Butler (which is a blue tooth hygrometer that sends readings to your phone so you don't have to open the lid to get a reading. I'm a...

    Hey fams, it's been almost two years since I posted here. I lost my password sometime ago, and my last computer crapped out in 2018 and I lost everything on it, so I didn't come back until just last night. I have 17 cigars in my Sistema 7-liter Tupperdore, but over the past year, maybe year...

    Hoping someone can give me some help here. For Christmas I was gifted a humidor. Everything about it seems to be constructed nicely, but unfortunately it came with a total piece of garbage for the hygrometer. I'm trying to buy a replacement, but alas, this is my first humidor and finding...

    I had 3 of the caliber 3 and all giving errors ( like humi % showing LL), and sometimes two of them not giving same results after calibration. I also tried xikar, and it is not consistent. What do you guys use? Any reliable hygrometer? Thanks

    Hi folks, I'm new here, I signed up looking for help with a problem. There's so much information out there, that it's driving me nuts, and I think I might be overthinking or worrying too much about this. So any help you can give me is greatly appreciated. I bought my first humidor (10-cigar...

    I have a digital hygrometer and it has been exposed to salt on occasions. I recently read in the manual you are not supposed to do this. How much does salt permantly effect a digital hygrometer that is capable of being calibrated?

    Hey ya'll. I have an indoor hygrometer that I picked up a few years ago from Walmart that I want to use in my homemade tupperdor. I have had it in a tupperware doing the salt test for about 18 hours exactly. When I began the salt test the hygrometer read 66%. Currently the hygrometer reads 70%...

    After failing multiple times with the salt test, I am trying this. They do not sell humidipack at my shop, however they have the boveda packs. So, my digital hygroset hygrometer has no calibrate button, instead an adjustable knob. What I am doing is throwing 2 69% bags in a tupperwear, remove...

    Well after welcoming myself into the forum, I am finally excited to get started on a problem that has been driving me insane. I have the Xikar rectangle digital hygrometer, and a digital hygrometer that the owner of my local shop generously gave me from one of his humidor showcases, not sure...

    Hi. Started a salt test last night but after 12 hours it's only reading 48% humidity and 67.5 degrees. I put in a bottle cap of (kosher) salt, distilled water until pasty consistency. Then I put the salt and acurite humidity thermometer (the one with the 10ft sensor cord not the smaller one)...

    So, I would like to start a pif or pass whichever is appropriate w/ a brand new boveda calibration packet. I will not open it simply date it when I receive and put in the mail. I would like to see how many hygros we can calibrate w/ one packet before it expires. Guess it will be a running list...

    My room can be very cool or very hot. Depending on if the AC is on. Will this effect my hygrometer? I am planning on doing a tupperdor and was going to by a digital hygrometer but due to my room always bouncing from cold to hot didnt know how much of a effect that would have.

    I seem to be having some hygrometer issues. When I purchased these two humidors (100 ct & 50 ct.) I checked them for leaks, improved the seal of the lid (which was already pretty good) using some freezer tape, improved the seal of the front mount hygrometer using rubber sealing tape, and...

    I am trying to calibrate a new digital hygrometer I just bought for a fridgeador I am building. The wireless sensor is currently sitting in a sealed plastic bag with a saltwater mixture that looks exactly like the descriptions led me to believe it should. It's been in there for about 6 hours and...

    I just received my new 50 cigar humidor and was wondering if it takes a few days or more for the hygrometer to settle to the climate of my house. I live in new england and my home is always 70degrees but unsure of the humidity. Right now it reads 60%rh but hasn't moved much since. It came...

    I've had the Xikar round digital hygrometer for about 9 months. A couple of days ago I did a "salt" test with the Boveda calibration kit. After 30 hours, the hygrometer read 81% humidity. I pressed and held the calibration button until the hygrometer read 75%. The problem is this...I wanted...

    I recently bought the Ambient Weather WS-0101-COMBO-KIT kit which is basically their WS-0101 wireless weather station with three remote temp/hygrometers included. It's a no-frills receiver, basically just gives you time and temp, then you can cycle through the three remote receivers to get...
