    I know this topic has probably been beaten to death, but I gotta ask, how much salt? I have read filling a typical bottle cap. I recently saw a video where the salt filled up half a shot glass then put in a Tupperware container. I've tried the bottle cap method in a plastic bag and got one...

    Hello all- I salt tested and calibrated a couple of my hygro's a few weeks back. I actually did it two different times a few days apart with two separate salt samples and I was right on at 75%. Yesterday, my brother gave me a Boveda Calibration packet. I figured I'd see how close I was...

    The last week I salt tested 9 caliber 3 hygros. They are anywhere from one year to two year old. A few have new batteries, but not sure which. They have been in my humidors, one in the refrig, one just hanging out in a bedroom. Was surprised at the results. Since the result should...

    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...

    Got a new hygrometer for christmas. I put it in the humidor and it was giving me strange readings. I decided to run a salt test on it today: 74 degrees F, 46% Is this a normal reading? I thought it should read 75%?! It's been in there ~8 hours.
