Mastering Humidity Control in Your Humidor


Mastering Humidity Control in Your Humidor: A Guide with NEEDONE's Electronic Cooler Cigar Humidor

Caring for premium cigars involves more than just buying and storing them. Precisely controlling the humidity levels in your humidor is essential to prevent mold growth or the drying out of your precious cigars. In this guide, we'll delve into the importance of humidity control, what constitutes the perfect humidity level, and how to adjust it with the help of NEEDONE's Electronic Cooler Cigar Humidor.

Understanding the Perfect Humidity:
Maintaining the right humidity level is crucial for preserving the flavor and aroma of your cigars. While opinions on the perfect humidity vary, keeping your humidor at a steady 62% to 74% humidity at a temperature of 74 degrees Fahrenheit is considered ideal. NEEDONE's Electronic Cooler Cigar Humidor, equipped with a digital thermometer and hygrometer, simplifies this process, ensuring optimal conditions for your cigar collection.

Troubleshooting High Humidity:
Excessive humidity can pose challenges, potentially affecting the quality of your cigars. If the humidity exceeds 75%, consider the following steps:

Calibrate the hygrometer regularly.
Leave the humidor open for a few hours to reduce humidity.
Check and adjust the humidification system, ensuring it's not emitting excessive moisture.
Consider temporarily relocating the humidor to a cooler, drier place during humid months.
Rotate cigars to promote even humidity distribution.
Increasing Humidity:
When humidity levels drop, it's essential to act promptly to prevent your cigars from drying out. Follow these steps:

Wipe the inside of the humidor with a damp paper towel using distilled water.
Ensure the humidor door is securely closed to prevent air exchange.
Refresh the humidity regulator every two weeks, especially during the initial weeks after purchasing a new humidor.
Lowering Humidity Levels:
High humidity can lead to mold growth and affect the performance of your cigars. To lower humidity:

Leave the humidor door open for a few hours.
Place the open humidor in direct sunlight to expedite moisture evaporation.
Supplementing Humidity:
In cases of low humidity, supplementing is necessary. Follow these steps:

Ensure your humidifier's device remains in water consistently.
Add humidifying solution or another device if home humidity levels drop.


Mastering humidity control is key to preserving the quality of your cigar collection. NEEDONE's Electronic Cooler Cigar Humidor simplifies this process, providing advanced features to maintain the perfect environment for your cigars. Invest in the best, and elevate your cigar storage experience with NEEDONE. Ensure your cigars age gracefully and enjoy them to the fullest with precise humidity control.

OK – I will make a problem statement slightly off, but here it is. I am using a refrigerator as a humidor as I tried to get a proper electric humidor with cooling, and it arrived broken. I am using the Cigar Oasis Magna 3.0; the refrigerator is ~500 liters, less than the 55 cubic feet it supports. My problem is this. Every time the compressor kicks in, the humidity plummets to less than 40%, and once the compressor cuts off, the humidity goes back up to >90%

My problem is that I don’t have access to a reasonably priced electric humidor with cooling in India – the available ones are well over the $10k range, which I cannot afford. My entire setup cost me less than $1000

Any help in finding a balance between humidification and cooling would be greatly appreciated because the ambient temperature in Bangalore, where I live, is far higher, and the temperature range is far too high for any semblance of a decent environment for aging cigars.
