How do I calibrate my hygrometer?
You’re looking to monitor your moisture. Good move. Maintaining appropriate RH levels is fundamental to caring for and preserving a cigar collection.
Watch the step-by-step video below to learn how to calibrate your hygrometer. Here are the directions, so you can follow along:
- Using the Boveda One-Step Hygrometer Calibration Kit, place your hygrometer inside the bag and close the seal.
- Let the hygrometer sit in the Calibration Kit for at least 24 hours at room temperature (65 to 75°F/19.5 to 23.5°C).
- Your hygrometer should read the same RH% level stated on the kit (either 32% or 75%). It’s possible that there’s a slight difference—just note it for future readings. If your hygrometer is adjustable, make the adjustment. Reusing the kit, recalibrate the hygrometer to make sure this new reading is accurate.
