I have had this for over 2 years now and I absolutely love it. It is a set it and forget it machine that always keeep my wineador at the perfect humidity level. I only have to refill it with distilled water every 2.5-3 weeks and it works flawlessly. I have only had to replace the reservoir one time for $12 because I ran out of distilled and had to use regular water, my mistake. The level of effort being so low and the operating costs being so low compared to the gel packs makes this an easy choice. For a small up front investment, it will provide years of perfect humidification for your sticks
Mine was accurate out of the box. Checked it with a Boveda 72 pack and zip-lok. Big size. Easy to read. Ability to calibrate if needed. I like the temperature feature as well. Looks good in the humidor too. I would recommend this product to others.
This unit works great, out the box i tested it and it was within calibration. The ribon that goes to the power was a bit hard to work with, but with a few glue dot i got it to now move and stay in place. This is far better than the 2.0 version. The screen looks amazing compared to the old 2.0. setting up the app was a bit confusing but its not hard. please note that the app has a fee. Also, note that this unit doesnt have a battery inside, so when you unplug it, it will turn off.
For under $8 you get what you pay for. I seems to be accurate within a degree or so compared to my digital one.
I have had this hydrometer working great now for over 9 months! I Calibrated it with a boveda kit took about 3-days to work minor adjustments .I Use 69% boveda packs in my humidor and this has been DEAD ACCURATE! I only have one drawback....the glue/ 2 side tape for the magnet falls off due to the humidity, every time I lift the lid I have found it on the cigars! But a couple spots of WATERPROOF superglue gel and it has not fallen off since!
Device works ok for a 20CF humidor. However the mobile app is buggy, only has 2 features and they charge $4/month for it. You can t find any information on the monthly charge until after purchasing the unit.
Bottom line: If you have the Oasis Excel and you re happy with it, leave it plugged in and forget the battery pack. It doesn t buy you a lot of time unplugged and the battery life declines quickly. I have had the company exchange me battery packs a few times and the most recent doesn t work at all.
There is nothing at all good about this product.You can buy a cheap $5 drug store thermometer that is accurate. The Cigar Oasis thermometer is off by 6 %. ow, they cant even get something as simple as a thermometer right! I tested the Cigar Oasis hygrometer against 2 other hygrometers that were perfectly calibrated and it failed.Cigar Oasis RH is 10 % of; thats way more than enough to completely ruin your cigar collection! It only allows calibration /- 9 RH rendering it useless.It does not hold calibration. It will read 62% ad and hour later read 70% een if your humidor is stable.The WiFi is a complete joke. Do a google search for cigar Oasis WiFi and youll see that everyone is upset with it. They released this product before testing...the consumer is their test group; you will pay the price for their lazy lack of research and development.Whenever you call the company they tell you, we will have an update next week. Ive checked with others who purchased this and they all said they have been told the same thing every since it came out years ago...still no update. They will then attempt to placate you by offering you a free 1 year WiFi subscription...on a product that the WiFi doesnt even work, how insulting is that!!!I believe their previous versions may have been reliable but the 3.0 is a massive failure!I really wanted to go electronic but will go back to my reliable Heartfelt beads.?
