From Madelaine, makers of some of the world's finest cigar accessories, comes this very affordable analog hygrometer. It features an easy-to-see red needle with the preferred relative humidity (RH) zone highlighted in blue. Suggestion: Add a Boveda Calibration pack to check it for accuracy.
Works well. The boveda pack I used in it was off by 1.
I was looking for an inexpensive hygrometer to put in a small makeshift humidor I put together at work to hold my ride home cigars in. When I installed this one in the humidor, it was reading 40%. After a humidifier with some Monster venom solution added, It jumped right to a nice 70%. ow I did not calibrate the hygrometer, but I m OK if its off several points because I just wanted something to keep me informed my cigars were staying in the ballpark the short time they re stored there.
So far so good, no salt test needed, works right out of the box, I may test it later if i find its inconsistent, but for right now I like it and the price is right, I ll be picking up more of these little gems for my cigar bags and smaller humidors.
