    I Hate Hygrometers

    I just finished about 65 hours of salt testing on my hygrometer <---- I hate hygrometers, they are not consistant. Even after 48 hours the humidity would rise as the tempreture would which is not really meant to happen? I think the best thing is to buy a brand of humidification device such as...

    How long to salt test??

    Hmmm I think so. When the tempreture is about 15 degrees C (59 F) I get 75% and when the tempreture rises to 20 degrees celcious (68 F) the humidity is about 78-79%.

    How long to salt test??

    Yeah I am just doing the salt test myself at the moment. Alot of websites out there say do it for 4, 8 or 12 hours. At 4 hours my reading was at 74%, 8-12 hours it was at 75% and at 24 hours it was 78%. It has now been 33 hours and is at 76%. Do I just keep waiting untill it doesnt change anymore?

    Which Online Retailer Do You Order From?

    Hey everyone I live in Australia and getting all cigars including cubans is no problem at all but everything is very very expensive. For example a box of CAO Brazilia ipanema here is $414.00 AUS dollars ($310.00 US) and from CI they are $90.00 US!!!!! Is there any catch to this? Are the cigars...

    Odd results to humidity experiment

    Yeah the tupperware container was very small. Im sure it has something to do with the amount of confined air/moisture. Oh well it doesnt really matter anyway. It was just wierd. Thanks for your input Radioman, Sean, Scimmia and Tony. Appreciate it all :)
