I use these for shipping cigar gifts or for storing overflow cigars that won t fit in my active humidified cabinet humidor. They work fantastic in tupperdors , acrylic humidors, or plastic freezer bags. I feel that they are superior to any other device in this application. While not the best option for wood lined humidors, they will work ok if you use enough, and the humidor has a good seal. I think that is not cost effective.

Supposedly two are enough for 50 cigars. I now have three in my humidor with about 40 cigars and can barely get the humidity to 60%.
These things really work. I have used humidity beads, foam, gel, pillows, etc. All of these add humidity. BOVEDA REGULATES HUMIDITY! The only down side is that I have a few different humidors and cannot afford to buy 5 or 6 every 1-2 months. But I found out you can recharge them. Just google it. These rock!
Just opened the box with my new humidor, didn't realize when I ordered everything that I Boveda recommends 1 pack per 25 cigars.
These are the best things for my cigars since my humidor! No more fussing and worrying about maintaining the perfect humidity level - no more risking my expensive investment by making a mistake with my humidification. I just put these in my humi and all I have to think about is enjoying my cigars - I highly recommend them!
Set it and forget it. 72% is the perfect Boveda.
I am an occassional cigar smoker - the mood must be write - peaceful and unhurried. Because of my smoking tendencies, many a fine cigar had died a painful death, only to be thrown away. The humidifiers that come with a cheap humidor are a joke, and even with constant attention, they do their jobs poorly. With a Boveda humidification pack, which I keep in the same box my cigars arrive in, I don't worry that my cigars will dry out. Quite simply, they do their job perfectly.
I live in Colorado, and even with the humidification device I bought for my humi, AND a shot glass of distilled water, I couldn't get the humidity past 60.I bought one of these, wary of whether or not it would actually work. Within the first day that I put it in there, the humidity was at 68!And since they apparently last for a couple months (time will tell on that one) I figure a $4 investment is definitely worthwhile, considering how it will very much improve the taste and burn of my cigars.
I couldn't keep one of my humidors at a constant level and now both of my humidors always read between 68-71% with Boveda humidity pack. Also super easy to use!! Negatives: kind of takes up space, I would recommend the cedar tray.
Trying to keep proper humidity in several small humidors has driven me nuts over the years. The packs in just a couple of months have solved the problems. cigars I thought were runined have slowly been rehumidified to a good texture and feel. One for the box and one for each fifty sticks does the trick. A gallon zip lock bag and a pack is an instant humidor for any bundle.
