    I have used the hygrometer calibration pack, and I tried out the humidor seasoning packs. They both worked great! I know a few guys here use the humidity packs and say they are pretty spot on. I have been considering getting some for the coolidor I am setting up but I have not decided what to use in there yet. If you have a smaller humi you might get a couple and see how they work out, I doubt you will be dissapointed.

    The calibration kit is spot on. The seasoning packs however take way too much time for my liking.

    The only thing I don't like about Boveda packs is that you have to change them every 2-3 months...which means buying more. I like my beads, just spritz them with water and they're good to go. The packs do work fine though, nothing to complain about.

    These things are the HEAT man. I really should be compensated by Boveda for as many people as I've turned on to these. They are all I use. They are awsome. Drop in , forget . repeat every 10 weeks . Can't possibly get any simpler . I use the 69's and my humi's all stay between 67 and 70 and thats cool with me . I love 'em !!! Did I mention I LOVE "EM !!!

    Help me out with the "beads" please. I've never used them. I know some people love them. What kind do you use? How much room do they take up ( I have a 150ct. Humi w/ approx 110 sticks)? Oh I have used the Boveda packets but they do get expensive if you need more than 2 for your Humi. Right now I just use the regulator w/ some water pillows. I stay between 66%-69%.

    I use them in combination with the beads..they do need to be replaced every 2-3 months> My thinking was that winter and lower humidity would require help for my existing humidification. My humidity currently hovers from 65-70%....They do work.

    I have just used the one for the calibration. Works like a champ!

    I now use the packs now to the exclusion of all else. I got tired of water, solution, pucks, gels, beads and the hassle. The packs are so reliable I barely even use/need my hygrometers anymore. Great product.
