I use this with monster venom and have had no problems. Cant say that with many others ive used, when it dips below 67 i add more juice gets back up to 69-70 i have one in a 150 count size humidor usually recharge every 3-4 weeks.
I have used these for years in my table top humidors and no need to use any special solution. Use distilled water only and let it set for 15-20 minutes to absorb the water before placing back in your humidor. Will keep your humidor around 70% +/- 1% for up to 3 months before needing to be refilled.
Well made with three different mount options. They don t wimp out on the magnetic option. I prefer just laying mine flat in the case. Which you can do by easily removing the other two options. I check mine every four days, which allows me to decide to add distilled water or wait a bit. The design makes it easy to see how the water crystals look and the top of the case makes adding water very easy due to it s random different sized holes on top. This is a great non-electric 100 round Humidifier.
My old hygrometer was showing around 68% and my sticks were drying out even after recalibrating with the salt test. So I bought this Xikar. Works like a charm. Automatically calibrates itself, the numbers are easy to read. I have only had it for 4 days, but finally I have the humidity in my humi where it should be and my sticks are stabilized. I cannot speak to the longevity as yet, but I am highly satisfied with it as of now. I would recommend it.
These are very accurate and reliable hygrometers. I ve had one for several years in my main humidor and now have 2 additional humidors I am using them in. Xikar is quality.
I have one in my small humidor and it holds a perfect 70/70 all the time. Highly recommend!
I have two of these and have had no issues what so ever. Easy to calibrate and accurate readings in the humidors. Worth a purchase.
Extremely accurate, lifetime warranty, easy to calibrate and has features that other hygros don't have. Don't even think twice, get it.
def worth spending the money on this hygrometer. other than the diamond crown hygro, this is the best one i've ever used. simple to calibrate-either use the salt test or boveda calibration kit and just click on calibrate when the time's up if the hygro isn't already reading 75%. fantastic and easy to use, cheaper than the DC. def worth the money than buying something like the caliber iii or iv, which can't be calibrated at all.
I bought 3 of these for my humidors. I had all 3 of them out and turned on getting ready to calibrate them. They had been turned on for about an hour all sitting in the same area, and all 3 of them were showing the same temp and humidity straight out of the box.I'm sold; Xikar for life.
