"Not a Good Product. Go with Xikar."
As a test, I always leave the humidification product in my room until it dries out just to see if its working. I give it about a month, this product after a month was as new. The crystals hadn't shrunk a bit. To me, this means that the release of humidity is slow. Go with Xikar which I consider a much better and faster release. Plus, it's clear crystals. The red really doesn't appeal to me.

"Spot on 70%, love it"
Gave these a shot in my 125 after noticing a funkiness in my older Oasis foam bricks. After experimenting I found I needed 3 2oz units scattered about. Now after letting it sit overnight and NOT PEEKING I have a perfect 70% at 68F. Note these use the same silica gel material as the beads, just in larger chunks , think cracked ice. Worked so great I emptied one of my bead tubes where the beads were getting dark from use and refilled with excess chunks from the Hydro-Gel jar. Then I did the same with a round humidifier. This solved the bulky container issue noted in another review.

"Looks Cool, Doesn't Work!"
Not good. I noticed some dryness and set up a data logger in my 25 cigar humidor. Pretty constant humidity average of 58% over 16 days. Max humidity of 62% at 64F. Not recommended.

Not impressed. I had some issues with cracking whilst using this product. I liked that it was easy to judge when it was time for replacing, but I felt it just didnt pack enough punch. For the space these take up in your box, you're better off going with alternatives imo.

"I don't like it"
I gave this a fair chance in one of my Humidors and honestly, it don't work for me. It claims to regulate to 70% RH but it never got past 68%. I hd to go back to my tubes. Plus these jars (I've tried both sizes) just take up to much room in my desk top Humidors.

"Time will tell"
I got a jar of this out of curiosity. Normaly I use the cigar size tube of beads and they work great. I put this into my big Humi and the RH went up to 77%. I'll let it settle down a bit and try again, but 77% don't get it.
