Cigar Cooler Humidor

Hi there
So I'm very new to the scene and have recently purchased an electric humidor. I'm curious on what your recomendation would be for rh levels. I live in AZ so it gets VERY hot and dry (hence the reason I opted for the temp control) I understand it will ultimately come down to preference but I am looking for a good range to start with as what I have been reading and both my B&M's all seem to contradict each other. I'm taking my time trying to get it dialed in before adding cigars to it. It's currently in the 67% - 70rh range, although I read a feed here before that's too high? Please help a girl out because the thought of beetles is not a pleasant one lol!

    I also like mine in the 65-67% range.  I find they smoke a little better than at a higher RH.  I guess it comes down to personal preference.

    ^^^^ Agreed on the 65-67% range.  This part of the desert goes from 0 to high humidity in no time.  I have less burn/relight issues in that range, along with dry boxing at times.

    Give yourself a name instead of the number and stick around.

    I’m 62-65 and 65 temp...I know it will be hard for you to keep temp down but that is a main factor
