I have recently started using air tight containers for humidification (read the post below) now I am thinking of dipping my toe in the CC market and all the information on this site indicates that a lower RH is essential so a new humidor with a lower RH is in my future (I have ZERO burning problems @65% RH for my NC"s)
The Amazon description claims the actual RH in the humidor will be up to 5 points lower then the rating on the pack has this been your experience with these or is that figure with cheap non air tight humidors?
Im currently using Heartfelt Beads and they hold steady at the rated RH in my new box.

OR am I over thinking this and I should just run all of my sticks at 62%??

You're overthinking it. You can store your NCs and CCs the same way (mine are bunk buddies in the same wineador).

Feel free to use your same methods. Consider dry-boxing for a day or two if you're not totally satisfied with the initial results.

To each their own of course, but I store CC and NC separate as I’ve been enjoying my CCs at 58%RH. I subscribe to the store them the way you want to smoke them mentality, thus avoiding the needs of dry boxing.

It helps that’s the large majority of my collection is CC tho.

regarding Bovedas - use a calibrated hygrometer to determine what the reality is (you can calibrate it by sticking it in a sealed container with any boveda).

I find that the humidity is always within 1% of the label. well within a typical margin of error.

That is what I found with the Heartfelt beads also
I was just surprised at the description on amazon claiming 5% lower then the stated level on the packs

This isn’t probably why it’s stated, but Boveda when used in a wooden humidor generally humidifies to -5% than stated RH due to leakage.

Interesting to me is that when I place 65% beads in the same tupperdor as 65% Bovedas the beads need replenishing while the Bovedas stay soft and charged. Not sure if they are set just a bit higher then the Boveda or if they are like the naughty high school girl that just gives it up a little quicker.

that is what I was thinking due to the fact that my wooden humidor was a PITA after switching to an air tight setup all my RH problems magically left!

I'm going with the naughty school girl theory :sneaky:
