Xikar Crystal Humidifier 250 Rectangular
The XiKAR Crystal 250 humidifier has a special polymer gel that absorbs up to 450 times its weight in fluid. That means better cigar humidification and less work for you. DO NOT use 50/50 solution with this unit. It is designed to work best with XiKAR's own PG solution, or plain distilled water.
Used with Xicar proprietary solution, these humidifiers work just fine ? for a little over a year. Then the humidity levels slowly drop off, and Xicar tells you it s time to replace them. Instead of spending the $$ on these, you d be better off with Boveda packs or simple beads and distilled water.
Do NOT use water or regular PG solution, use Xikar brand fluid only. I ve had these in the past and used PG and it didn t absorb properly. I use only Xikar solution and they work flawlessly.
Do NOT use water in this unit. I use Xikar's solution and have yet to have any sort of issues at all. Works beautifully.
These work great if you use them correctly. DO NOT use distilled water or tap water. Only use a PG solution, perferrably Xikar. If you use the PG solution you will never have mold. These maintain humidity very well, but need to be replaced every few years. 5-star product.
