IMO, I think 75% is too high. YMMV.

I have 65% beads in everything. So they stay between 60-67% it seems.

I try to stay at 65. My desktop has been running like a top lately, but my cooler for some reason has been at 68 since I last charged the beads a few weeks ago. Not sure why, but I'm not too worried about it.

Default Re: Humidity question

63-65% here. IMHO 75% is WAY too high.

Have any draw, burn or split wrapper problems?

Default Re: Humidity question

I agree with many above. 75% is real high. I used to keep my desktops & cabinet at 70%, and I was having inconsistencies in the cigars. Some smoked perfect, but more than I'd care to mention did not. I had bad burns, constant relight's etc. I bought 65% beads and all the problems I mentioned ceased (well, at least 95% problems ceased). So, 65% for me.
