This affordable brass/glass analog hygrometer works in all cigar humidors, including humidors with built-in 1¾ diameter hygrometers in front or on top. It also has a calibration adjustment screw on the back. Just remove the clear rubber ring to expose the air holes. Magnetic mounting kit included.
For $10 this hygrometer is a great value. No batteries, analog non-digital gauge, old school
I recently came back into cigars, and therefor needed to set things up for a small, yet serviceable humidor. I purchased my humidor based on the fact that at any given time I have around 25-50 cigars in this humidor alone with some infused in a seperate container. Unfortunately I opened the box to see no hygrometer. As a sacrifice of having a few extra dollars to justify some sticks with my purchase, I grabbed this little analog gem. The construction feels solid, but not too heavy. I performed a salt test and was very happy to see that right out of the box, the hygrometer was reading 76% humidity at the end of testing. I then placed the hygrometer into the humidor that is at the end of seasoning to see that it came up to the 84% boveda pack with nearly flawless accuracy. I think for 10 bucks, this is a steal! For anyone placing this in a pre drilled hole, it does come with the rubber grommet on the sides to help with a nice, tight fit.
After calibrating it, it tells me when my humidor goes above or below 69% R. It does what it s supposed to do, the magnetic back is a big plus. A good product for the price.
Bought a large humidor to replace a couple of others that I had and had the complete assumption that this hygrometer would be complete garbage as the others. I was totally wrong. This one is heavier duty and has a rigid / tight adjustment screw point unlike the others which had a flimsy and virtually non usable screw in the back. Accidentally dropped it from my counter and it just responded with a heavy clunk. Very surprised with this unit and it will actually be used.
