Default anyone use humidity beads?

for a curing chamber, has anyone used the humidity beads (or sheets) used in humidors? There are various brands that stabilize the humidity at 70% and some dip down to 60%. This would be a much easier stepping stone into curing as i don't have to rig up a setup.

I have been considering it, but it would get expensive to get enough for a large volume.

I currently use heartfelt beads in my humidor. Just soak in distilled water for a ec and dry it off....keeps humidity at 65% for weeks inside my humidors.
