Boveda is the international standard for premium tobacco storage, trusted in the cigar packaging of the industry's biggest brands. There are plenty of products that claim they are the same as Boveda, but there is only one 2-way humidity control device on the market. Boveda!
The same precision technology used in the music, electronics, medical devices and food storage industry is available in a range of tobacco-related humidity levels to give you a number of zero maintenance options to create the ideal aging environment. Based on the humidor quality and preferred humidity level - 62, 65, 69, 72, 75 and 84% (exclusively for seasoning) relative humidity levels are available.
The life of any Boveda is based on how hard it has to work. It is recommended to use one Boveda to every 25 cigars the humidor holds (even if it isn't full of cigars), and they'll last 2 - 3 months. And since Boveda will never humidify beyond the Relative Humidity you have chosen, there's no such thing as 'too much' Boveda. More Boveda will work more efficiently and last longer, meaning you can never buy more than you need.
Boveda works on the scientific principle that certain salts mixed with water will naturally add or remove humidity as necessary to maintain a predetermined RH. Boveda invented and patented the method that makes this scientific principle portable and practical for packages and containers.
Boveda is the only product on the market that adds or removes moisture as needed, to maintain precise relative humidity within a package or container.
