How Many Boveda 320g Packs and Hygrometers Are Needed?


Recommended Posts

How many Boveda 320g 65RH packs and hygrometers (Wireless Sensor Tag Pro ALS) are needed if I use Coleman 150 Quart Offshore Pro Series Marine Cooler horizontally? I have a plan for buying cigar cabinet from Raching, but have a backup Coolidor project in case I'm unable to get cigar cabinet.

What's the function of said cooler? Is this going to be to put monthly orders in to take a long nap? Or is this going to be your daily humidor opening and closing multiple times a day?

If the former, a single 320 will do it - in fact, you may have to take it out for a day every couple months to release moisture depending on how wet your cigars ship.

If the later, one would probably still do it, but you might want a second staged to rotate in as the other comes to need recharging.

I'm going to use a cooler as a coolidor, so it'll be both daily and long term storage one. I might put 3 Boveda 320g packs for more efficiency, since it's more effective than using one 320g pack for large cooler like this.

I use 5 67 gram packs in each of my coolers. I prefer using 5 67g vs 1 320g because I can place them in different parts of the cooler, spread them out.

To me, I prefer using 320g packs over 60g packs for 150qt Coolidors, since it's simpler than buying tons of 60g packs. BTW, will 2 hygros enough for horizontally placed 150qt coolidor (top & bottom)?

I'll go for Raching C330A, but with 3 drawers only (top, mid, and bottom) for box storage exclusive. They make custom cigar cabinet too based on BOTLs request. BTW, are their cabinets quite pricey?

I remember you bought precision one, which is more expensive than climate controlled ones. Saw Raching C330A on Alibaba and it costs $900 though.
