I've read (at least I think I have) the posts on too much humidity. But, I've got a problem that is driving me nuts. I've got a desk-top humidor that I've been storing my cigars in for years. I had a Paradigm humidifier for several years but lately it didn't seem to be keeping the humidity high enough (it stayed at about 60%).
So, I bought a Credo 70, charged it with distilled water and put it in the humidor. In two days the humidity was reading 79%. I immediately took it out and the humidity dropped to 70%. The humidity has stayed at 70% for the last 4 days with out the humidifier in the humidor. When I put it back in (with out recharging it) the humidity jumped to 79% again.
The hydrometer I'm using is digital and I've testd it twice in a salt test kit. Both times the reading was two points higher than the 75% standard. So it seems to be accurate--or at least not 9% off.
Any thoughts or suggestins would be welcome!
