I have been using multiple cheapies and calibrating them annually when I change batteries. Calibrating with 65% humipacks (multiple) in double plastic bags.

Then I had some issues where the cigars were clearly over humidified.

So, I bought some thermoworks pocket hygrometers


They showed I was at 71% and 73%!

I am thinking of ordering a couple more, thought I would check with you guys to see and see what you're using.

I am aware that these are not lab quality units, which would be in the thousands, but they seem reasonable and better than what I have been using.

Thought I would see what you guys are using.

SensorPush and Govee. Very fairly priced, easy to recommend. I've got three SensorPush units in my Staebell, a Govee in my dry box. I recommend salt testing and calibrating them but they've all been within a point when tested. So easy to set them up with the apps. Amazon has them all. Bang for the buck the Govee is tough to beat. Look them both over. ..really like mine

I have actually had great luck with Jedew and Goabroa. Both are cheap mini hygrometers sold on Amazon. All have been within 1% tested at 3 different humidity levels

I can't believe this thing is still working!

It was discontinued by Radio Shack when I bought it in 2008!

Three remote units, one in each coolidor, transmit to this base weather station.

Thanks for that link, Blinded by Science.

Thanks for also not giving me grief about not having searched.

If I had, I would have come up with that recent thread. Great thread.

I've got a lot going on, and in my haste didn't search, because it was something I had been trying to get around to for several days.

Sorry about that. and for the benefit of anyone that comes across this thread, the link is where you find more and better information
