The temperature setting is not digital, rather a small knob inside the cooler. To me, this makes for a really clean exterior "look" and from what I have read, the digital models aren't all that accurate. Condensation appears to be an issue with thermoelectric coolers in general. This one has a small indention on the back wall of the liner to catch the water and a tube that should pipe it out of the cooler and into a drip tray on the back. I'll let you know how that works out.
I have a couple questions:
1) The compact size of this cooler worries me a bit as I have only purchased singles up to this point. For the most part, the cigars I smoke are in the 5-6" range. I realize there are probably exceptions, but would it be safe to assume that most 20-25ct cigar boxes for these cigars will have a length or width dimension that is under 7 inches?
2) Beads. I'm basically looking at 2000 cubic inches of interior volume. which calls for 4 ounces of beads. I have plenty of room under the bottom shelf... would it be overkill to buy a half pound of beads for this cooler? From what I understand, it would help recovery time from door opening, right?
