Sorry for the delay, I just now saw this message now. Assuming your humidor is of the desktop persuasion, it's best to stick it to the underside of the lid. I always try to put the hygrometer somewhere in the middle of the humidor. Hope this helps...Does it matter where you put it. I'm doing mine now an put it back in the humi. Is this bad?
Perfect timing as I just ordered one of these. It's also nice to see a manufacturer who has no qualms w/their hygro undergoing a salt test.I just got a ton of emails about this lately so I thought I'd share some info (in addition to the already great info supplied on the topic header) here:
Instructions for calibrating a XIKAR hygrometer with salt test:
Thanks, Dave! I woke up this morning and was a little disappointed to see that it's only reading 46%. I put my hygrometer in the bag about 10 hrs. ago and at that time it was reading 39%. What does this tell me? Do I need a new hygrometer?Any questions just let me know. I've done it a few times. I followed the instructions here and it went great.
Yeah, it is digital. As far as the battery, I'm getting a new one today and then re-testing it.Is it digital?
If so, when were the batteries last changed?
How was the seal on the bag?
