Like I said, they are the same pellets you buy from a cigar shop, only super cheap
how ingenious... i'll have to look them up as well.

I'm still tempted by this...



Quote:
The Cigar Oasis Ultra electronic cigar humidifier was designed to mount on the lid of the humidor (or on or under a tray) with minimum space requirements. It uses an upgraded microprocessor technology to measure and control the humidity accurately. It has two modes of control. When used with battery power it works until the desired humidity is reached. Then the unit goes to 'sleep' which means the power is turned off to extend battery life. It will sample the humidity every five minutes to make sure the humidity is correct. If not, it goes into control mode to adjust humidity. When operating on line power it samples the humidity continuously. In both cases the control point is set to 70% humidity. The unit comes with a sealed water cartridge mounted and ready to use.
• Small Size - 1" H x 2.5" W x 6.375" L • Exclusively for the cigar aficionado's personal humidor (up to 75 cigars or 1 cubic foot) • Fully automatic • Virtually maintenance-free • Battery or outlet powered • Distilled water only • Accurate humidity control • Integral humidity indicator • Low water and battery indication and alarm • Runs for weeks maintenance free • Sleek look for your humidor • Sealed water cartridge with mold retardant • Weeks of unattended reliable operation • Audible alarm for low battery and water • Easily replaceable or refillable water cartridge
$80 at Amazon....

I can't find any reviews of it, is the thing. Looks like it came out pretty recently. I'll have to peruse some of the cigar forums and see if anyone likes it, see how it works.

Definately about 8000x sexier that the other Cigar Oasis models!

You'll probably be happier with a pound or two of 65% RH beads.

The gel things suck. IMO

I think what I need to do is take a road trip. There's a REALLY nice smoke shop over in NoHo, I could probably talk the wife into going to NoHo with me this weekend on our anniversary. They've got some really nice humidors over there, and I'm sure they can point me in the right direction of a good humidifier or good system of some kind. Wife loves a nice cigar herself, so she'll be happy to stock up a bit, too

well all of my stuff should be here tomorrow. and as soon as its here i will start to prep the humidor. also having never had this many cigars at one time whats the best way to keep them while prepping the humidor, this weekend is a great time to sit back with a homebrew and have a cigar.

bingo, that's the best way for pre-humidifying the cedar. distilled or RO water..something pretty darn pure. that's what my tobacco shop told me.

you can freeze them. Some people don't agree with this method, but it will kill any tobacco beetles that maybe lurking about.
