  1. Well, the unit is designed to store singles at the top at the higher humidity zone and the principle of humidity rising is an established fact so you can take in to account there are fans circulating air but they are fixed in their velocity and therefore the micro climate created will still adhere to the principles noted because water vapor displaces air and so it is mostly the air alone that is being moved and not the water vapor… i understand that it seems intuitive that humid air would sink, that is the assumption of most prior to seeking the science behind the reality.
  2. Humid air is less dense than dry air and thus it always rises given same temps. So you’re likely inferring the sensor locations upside down.
  3. Highly unlikely. They have higher scrutiny n releasing any app on iOS this higher costs associated
  4. Thanks for the info about the “HS1,2,3,on,of” I asked Sukie but never got an answer on that. I had guessed it was a variable setting for the “habano-somelier” but this makes sense. in my cabinet and all those I’ve looked at it’s the top of the cabinet that gets the highest rH not the bottom as humidity is pushed up from the bottom. For example I set mine at 65% - it’s 64 on my lowest shelf and 67 on the highest where I keep my NC singles.
  5. Raching is a legit company, if you order through Alibaba, no sweat you will be taken care of - my experience. The MON series has more features but the big difference is there is no membrane which you would need to replace every 6 months with the C series. Just received my MON1800 yesterday and so far it is performing well... can't stop staring at it, such a cool piece of kit if you can swing it, go for it.
  6. Just got my MON1800A yesterday, took forever and there are a lot of wrinkles to iron out in the fulfillment side. That said, Sukie is on point and managed the entire process and stayed with me to assure I got it. Estes was the delivery company that took it from their new warehouse in SoCal... they put it on the wrong truck and it went to Chicago and back to the East Bay. You might check with Sukie now about shipping costs - I paid 400$ for the MON1800A given that they have built up a supply stateside and can ship a bit lower cost but not too much. The unit is great, fired it up and
  7. I'm going full send on any CC not called JP Caz (those I've pitched several times)...
  8. I'm working on organizing a 'small' herf in the East Bay... see you're in SoCal but perhaps if you're planning to be in the area I could coordinate this little soiree to accommodate you. The premise is to hang out and smoke (and drink a bit) and talk about cigars, forgoing small talk and all the trivial chatter I presume none of us care too much for. Let me know!
  9. Got one East Bay BOTL so far! Come on guys and gals who else wants in? It's gotta be in June as well, i've got my second child coming in early July
  10. Forget polite conversation... I just want to talk about the cigars and maybe trade one or two and have a nice beer or rum to boot!
  11. Decided this morning would be a fine one to taste and enjoy a Cohiba Siglo IV. While I have found that all CC are tasting more or less 'same/similar' there are nuances and the Siglo IV seems to possess some more pronounced flavors. Rich, earthy, cedar came out in the first third followed by a slight transition to more coffee and dark cocao in the second, the final shifted back to earthy yet delicate tobacco - a trait I'm finding in other CC, in varying degree, that the experience (I've enjoyed ~20 CC since taking up the pastime) has been perhaps that CC are more like a delicate wedding ca
