Default Question regarding 5-count Herf-A-Dor

I have been told these are known to over-humidfy, so my question is: Do you fill the humidifier in your Herf-A-Dor or just use it dry? I am traveling out of state for 12 days and bringing 5 of my babies with me.

If you do fill it (I would use distilled water only, no PG) do you allow the cigar a certain time to sit in ambient air before smoking to mitigate burn issues?

I never use the humidifier in my 5-count.
Cigars shipped from overseas are often in-transit for 12 days without humidification and do fine.

I never use the humidifier in my 5 or 15 count. Like Peter has said, the sticks will be fine.

Default Re: Question regarding 5-count Herf-A-Dor

I have had sticks in my Herf-a-dor for weeks after forgetting them, they are perfectly fine afterwards. The thing is super air tight so there is virtually little to zero humidity loss.

Default Re: Question regarding 5-count Herf-A-Dor

I made the mistake of filling my 15 count humidifier up days before a herf. The cigars were so wet they could hardly stay lit, and this is days later. you'll be fine without filling it up.

I use a small boveda pack in my 15 herf-a-dor, but I store cigars in there all the time.

I sometimes use a boveda pack and sometimes fill it but I tend to fill it once every couple of months but my 5 count i don't think I've ever filled and it works great!

Oo, NCRadioMan sent me some CA stickers. I'll have to slap one on also

My Drymistats are in both of my humidors so I'm leaving those where they are as they're been fairly steady, but I like the idea.

I love having smokes in my car. Only time mine comes in the house is for a refill.

Looks like your question has been answered. Now I have one. Did you transpose the numbers in the original post?



Last time I left home for 12 days, I took a 30-count a 15-count and a 5-count. And I was a bit nervous and looking for a B&M around day ten.
(And just a humipack in the 30.)

Hahahaha I smoke maybe a couple per week so I think I'll be fine. I plan to probably purchase a couple while I'm there anyway.
