Cigar Advisor Magazine has just released a new article written by Cigar Advisor Magazine’s own Gary Korb entitled “How To Charge A Cigar Humidifier.”

Does your humidifier get a charge out of you? Cigar Advisor Magazine has posted a new article in its Cigars 101 section. Entitled "How to Charge Your Cigar Humidifier," magazine Executive Editor, Gary Korb, describes how to perform this simple procedure, which may be more useful for those who are new to cigar smoking.

"I've received a number of emails from cigar smokers asking how to charge their humidifier, I felt it was worthy of a post," writes Korb.

The author suggests that before you charge it, you identify what type of humidifier it is: green foam or crystal beads. New humidor owners should also check as to whether the humidifier that came with the humidor is the proper size.

"Some humidors include humidifiers that are not adequate for humidifying the capacity of cigars the humidor is designed to hold," adds Korb. "For example, if you purchased a 100 ct. humidor, the humidifier may only be able to handle 50 cigars." For such cases, Korb offers several solutions.

He also emphasizes the use of 50/50 polyglycol charging solution and distilled water over tap or spring water when charging a humidifier. For green foam-based humidifiers, Korb recommends a mix of 50/50 charging solution and distilled water.

"This will ensure the foam gets enough polyglycol to prevent mold and keep a steady humidity level, without clogging the pores, which can happen over time if 50/50 is used exclusively," writes Korb.
