    No need for beads in every box, just keep them in the bags they are in. The boxes are nowhere near air tight so that isn't an issue.
  • Ejenne is right on. The only boxes you would need to put beads in are boxes that are designed to work as a stand-alone humidor, which are relatively few and far between and you would know if you had one of those.
  • thanks guys , i appreciate it, have a grt week happy new year

    Like the Armada box?
    Light 'em up.
  • most likely that would be my guess

    Yes, exactly like the Armada box. But with a box like that, I would NEVER hide that beauty in my humi. I've never seen a stand-alone cigar box that wasn't at least decent enough looking to be out on display.

    Yeah. The armada box even has a hygrometer and humidification device, but others are just made to hold a seal and a humidipack or similar. I also agree, I wouldn't hide such a nice box, but just offering another small piece of info.

    Yeah I'm thinking that bad boy would have to be on display and even used for other sticks once I smoked all the Armadas...
    Light 'em up.
