The Cigar Monster
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.
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.
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.
