Should I use Boveda with other humidification?Charles Rutherford @ 2019-06-12 15:36:08 -0500
No, throw them out.
Here’s why: Sponges, gel, crystal, beads or water pillows with or without PG solution all work the same. You add water, they evaporate 100% humidity and count on your humidor leaking enough moisture (all humidors leak to some degree). Thankfully, this lowers the humidity to a level that won’t turn your humidor into a moldy mess. When you introduce Boveda into the equation, it’s absorbing all the excess moisture given off by whatever device you’re using. No matter the condition of the humidor, size of water source, ambient conditions and number of Boveda, your guaranteed result is a lot of frustration.
We recommend using at least one Boveda per 25 cigars the humidor holds, even if it isn’t full. Why “at least”? Because unlike all other humidification, you can never use “too much” Boveda. They’ll never humidify beyond your chosen RH. If you’re using more than the 1 per 25 rule, the Boveda will work more efficiently and replaced less often. For example, you could use two Boveda in a 50 ct humidor and replace every couple months. Or use four and get four months. This would also allow you to pull out one of the “extra” Boveda when you need one for your travel humidor.
So get all the “dumb” humidification safely away from your humidor and use the global leader in 2-way humidity control!
