I complained the first time asking why the jar came with almost no gel inside, it only had a tiny drop. I was sent another one and it was the same result. I previously a while back ordered it and it came with a full jar of gel. When i ordered and complained got the same result. 2 jars with Practically no gel. I basically paid 8 bucks for an empty cup.

I have used these with good results but I'm pretty miffed with how I received my last order. I ordered 8 of these. Every single one of these the lid was not on tight and leaked. Although they are all useable ,I feel the container design is flawed. The inside cover on all of them do not fit very squarely and aperantly did not allow whomever placed the lids on to securely tighten down all the way

I have a humidor that I got a few month back that just won't keep humidity. i looked at electric humidifiers but they cost just a little less than the humidor itself. I tried Xikar gel and although better I still find I am using other methods in conjunction to keep the humidity. So with the Gel and the disk that came with the humidor I can keep the humidity correct but it still calls for constant mnonitoring.

I bought two of these from you along with your digital thermometer/ hydrometer and have a small desktop humidor that holds 25 - 30 sticks. I have now seasoned this humidor twice and the best I can get the humidity is 64%. I even put both jars in with the same results. I ended up making a Coolidor with loose beads that keep the RH to satisfaction. I would like to be able to store some everyday sticks in the desktop but can't.

Reading the nice comments with this I tried it. So far after 3 weeks my cigars are at 51%, they are starting to dry. I didn't add any propylene glycol as it said the jar was ready to go. The beads are still above the refill line. I am not happy with this product. My hydrometer is the digital from Thompson

I have had this in my 100ct humidor for about a month now and I still can't get over 65%. It fluctuates from 60-65% throughout the week. I have about 50 cigars in there too so it might just need another one added.

This does help to regulate the humidity, but it won't keep my 25-50 cigar humidor at 70% on its own. I use it in conjunction with the cheap little humidifier that came with a 20 cigar humidor I ordered a while back. The combination has it right at 70% according to my hygrometer, but alone the jar had it just below 60% (~57%). I would only recommend this if you are going to use something else with it. Then it works great!! Also, if you have a shallow humidor, (for say 20 cigars) it won't fit, it is too tall. I have 2 humidors and it will only fit in my larger 25-50 cigar humidor. However, if you had a 100-150 cigar humidor I would get at least 2 of these to do the job.

Great product! Just unscrew the cap and place in your humidor. I have 50+ count humidor with about 25 cigars and this Xikar product keeps the humidity at 71%. Throw out that green sponge and get one of Xikar's crystal humidifiers. Makes life so much easier.

Great insurance for your investment, this product actually enhances smoking everyday. Each cigar is CONSISTENTLY maintained at the optimum moisture level. Allows one to purchase not-so-great cigars and improve the burn and smoke-ability. Only rated it a 4 because I don't yet know how long the jar will last (split among 3, 20 cigar humidors)

No easier or more consistent humidification devices available for large capacity humidors and coolidors than these silica gel and propylene glycol jars. They last a very long time and as propylene glycol has very low vapor pressure and does not evaporate like water, you can refill with just plain distilled water multiple (as in five or six or more) times without needing to recharge with expensive 50/50 cigar juice propylene glycol/water solutions. If you're looking to use humidification beads, these devices are perfect for getting those beads pre-conditioned (or re-conditioned) to the desired 65-70 percent RH setpoint. Just take your beads and put them in a sealed container along with an open jar of the Xicar 4 oz gel and let the combination sit undisturbed for several days to a week. Your beads are now conditioned to the proper RH and your Xicar gel is ready to be recharged (if needed) with additional distilled water. Using both the Xicar gel and humidity beads in your humidor/coolidor makes for the ultimate humidification combo. All in all, the Xicar Gel 4 oz silica gel propylence glycol/water product is just excellent. Highly recommended.

Pro: This is a great product for the price. Pro: It is easier to use than refilling a liquid humidifier. Pro: Although the ideal humidity is 74%, this product keeps my humidor at 80% of which is not bad for a 100 cigars. Con: I would have given this 5-stars except that it will not fit in the Lucky 7 humidor.

I have been smoking cigars for about 18 years and always noticed the cigars losing flavor and drying-out eaven in a humidor. I have only had this product for about a month, but can see a definite difference in the consistent humidity in the humidor. I was skeptical at first, but have since ordered the refil solution and plan to use this product for a long time.

Climate there is SO DRY, I hope the gel beads can keep it at 70%. If it works, it will be very cool because I won't have to buy cigars (or bring them with me) everytime I come into town...
