Did you wind up adding a Xikar fan in your 300? If you have, have you had any issue with moisture getting into the battery pack? A review on Amazon has a guy discussing this issue, along with it not really moving much air. I have one on the way (Audew 300)and was looking thru this thread to get tips on setting it up. The groundwork has been laid, for sure. Thanks.Same here. I have two Govees in the 150 and a Cigar Oasis stand-alone digital. All have been salt calibrated. I move them around now and then and generally get pretty close readings througout.
That said, I think with this new one I may get one of those Xikar fans and put in it, it's larger and I think the fan only runs in these when they are cooling. Which may not be that often, depending on AC in the house etc.
@jfields or @CigSid i think may be the ones that talked about a backup battery that would kick on when the power went out that was just for the humidors. You know, cause they have some freaking stock in them.One flaw I see in this new humidor of mine. We live in a rural area and the power goes out intermittently. I believe it causes the programmed temp to go to the preset/default temp the 300 comes with. I'm not really liking that very much. I'm going to have to figure out an option to prevent that, or fix it if away for a bit. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
I second this, super curious if anyone still uses propylene glycol. From my understanding it was a antifungal agent.Did you wind up adding a Xikar fan in your 300?

One thing that's missing is the use of propylene glycol solution. Does anyone use this anymore? I bought a large bottle of 100% and mix it with distilled water, but apparently no one else seems to, or at least they don't talk about it.
Thanks for any input you may offer. Enjoy the day.
Mine just sit in the basement that averages 67-68° year round. This time of year the fans rarely come on and I don’t have to tend to the beads, or the water tanks much. Winter requires a little more work, but not much, and I don’t really stress over power outages.
OK, Now we are talking. The drawers make all the difference. I want to do this with my 150 Audew.Well, just a little update on the 300. It sat in my office seasoning for weeks (months actually). I added two drawers when they became available, liked them so added two more, let the drawers season, then brought it home today.
Moving smokes around from various ziplocs, desktop units and a wooden cabinet unit, I got the majority of my NC's in it. Some pics below. Pics are lousy but they hopefully show the capacity a bit. As I count, you can get 12-14 robustos (which is what I mostly smoke) side by side in each drawer, in two rows, and stacked three deep. So roughly 75 robustos per drawer. Five drawers, so 375. Plus I put a tray under the lowest drawer and have another 30 or so in there. Since they're not all robustos, I reckon I've got easily 300 cigars in the thing.
I'll keep a close eye on it to see how it holds rh and temp. Right now, it's battling miserable ambient conditions here, holding the temp low, rh a little high from the seasoning (which I figure is ok as there's a lot of smokes in there to absorb and stabilize).
I still have the Audew 150, which is now dedicated solely to CC's. And I still need a few desktops and acrylic jars for overflow, and for a drybox. Sheesh, if this keeps up I'll need a walk-in.

Wanted to report that I ordered a drawer from this company 2 months ago. I have yet to receive any product or update as to the disposition of my order. I have left several emails with this company with no response of any kind.
Forest is very slow and sucks at responding yes. People typically get their orders and are happy with them. But yes what you are experiencing is completely normal.Wanted to report that I ordered a drawer from this company 2 months ago.

Has anyone else had issues buying from this company. It looks as I I will be forced to report this company to my credit card company.
