Cigars/best quality electronic humidification system

Question
Hi Bill.....I am interested to know your opinion as the best quality electronic humidification system for my end table style humidor (500-700 capacity).  I am not so much concerned with cost as I am quality.  I currently use the Heartfelt beads which are great but my concern is the dryer winter months where I live.  I am spritzing the beads more than I want to (or remember to), so I really want a quality “set it and forget it” unit.  Thanks for your input.

Answer
John,

So sorry to be so long in responding. I took a few days off for the Thanksgiving holidays and forgot to set "vacation days" on this site.

I've had great success with the Cigar Oasis electronic humidifiers. I keep one in my humidor at the ranch where it gets little attention, and it maintains my cigars perfectly. I've had the same unit in the humidor for several years with no problems. They come with a large reservoir, so there is much less than normal filling, and they have an optional alarm that can be set to let you know when the water level is low.

A Cigar Oasis XL Plus is supposed to maintain up to 10 cubic feet and should be sufficient for your humidor. There is a larger unit, the IIXL, but I honestly think that would be overkill. You can read about them at www.cigaroasis.com If you need one, we offer the XL Plus for $138.95 on our site www.finckcigarcompany.com

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Expertise

I'm a fourth generation cigar maker and have spent 25+ years operating our factory as well as a mail order cigar company. I belong to cigar manufacturers associations as well as retail cigar associations so I'm usually up to date with current events relating to cigars. I've smoked the majority of brands on the market and would be happy to share my opinions of them with you. Since I live in the U.S. I have very little experience with Cuban cigars, but other than that I know a least a little bit about almost every brand of cigars on the market.

Experience

In addition to growing up in and now managing our cigar factory for 25+ years, I've spent time in many factories in Honduras, Nicaragua, The Dominican Republic and Mexico. BR>
