Hello All,
I am using 2 pelican case as humidors. Small 1120 and a larger 1400. I purchased 69° packs . Prior to using the pelican cases I first used a Boveda 75° calibration kit and both cases hit right on mark 75° after about 30 hours. I then loaded the pelican cases. The small one which I use for traveling had about 10-15 sticks I inserted 2 69° packs with the sticks. I loaded the large case with about 30 sticks. I inserted 3 Boveda 69° packs in that one. After 3 days both packs humidity began climbing and both leveled off approximately 71.9° - 72.5°. I only open the pelican cases once a day to stock up on my days smokes. Do I need to buy more Boveda packs maybe 65°. Can anyone advise why this is happening.
Thanks

I would suggest the 65 rh packs, you should only need one pack per case. It’s not uncommon for the packs to be on the high side in a sealed environment. My understanding is that they are engineered for wooden humidors that “breath”
I think that you will find your cigars smoke and taste better at the lower rh as well.

65s gives you more wiggle room. Plus wet cigars will add to the rh.

Just remember, if you toss in 65s give em a couple weeks to regulate. It takes em longer to soak up rh than to release.
