Every Boveda recommended humidity is accurate to +/- 1% in an air tight environment, which humidors are not. It’s common that the actual recommended humidity of your humidor will stabilize up to 5 points lower than the Boveda recommended humidity you’re using, due to humidor quality and ambient dryness.
That’s why we make Boveda in five different recommended humidity levels for tobacco application: 65, 69, 72, 75 and 84 percent – so you can use the recommended humidity that achieves the humidity you and your cigars prefer.
Unlike distilled water and PG solutions with sponges/gel/crystals/beads that will impart unwanted flavors on your cigars, Boveda’s reverse-osmosis membrane only releases pure water vapor and Boveda will never damage anything through direct contact.
Once you smoke a cigar stored with Boveda, you’ll finally enjoy it exactly as the master blender intended.
Note: Do not mix Boveda recommended humidity levels within the same humidor, and do not use Boveda in the same humidor with other humidification products. They will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of the Boveda.
