HUMI-CARE Crystal Gel Humidification

This is fantastic stuff!

Just saturate your HUMI-CARE jar with a small amount of water and the beads absorb and expand. These specially-formulated beads contain a humidity-balancing solution of propylene glycol, so you’re assured of a slow, steady release of moisture and constant humidity of 65-70%. Each refill with water typically lasts 1 to 2 months, and each jar can be refilled over and over for up to a year before replacing. It’s a no-brainer, ideal for 25-150 capacity humidors - grab a couple of jars if you have bigger humidor or multiple shelves. Keeps your stash in good stead and means very, very little babysitting by you. Each jar is 4oz.

Customer Reviews of “HUMI-CARE Crystal Gel Humidification”
“Just place it in your humi and "forgetaboutit" (HumiCare).”
VB of San Francisco, CA
“These work great (HUMI-CARE Crystal Gel Humidification)! I put one in my Tupperdor and it holds a perfect 70%! Amazing!”
MG of Sturbridge, MA
“This stuff (HUMI-CARE Crystal Gel Humidification) works and it is amazing. I placed it inside of my hundred count humidor and it keeps the humidity between 70 and 72. This stuff works great. Thanks again. I am going to place an order for two of friends.”
YB of Chicago, IL
“This stuff is like magic! I decided to try the crystals in my 100 count humidor because the humidifier that came with it was keeping my humidor too humid even though I was using the CI Juice. I put the HUMI-CARE Crystals in and by the next morning my digital read 70% and now hardly moves unless I open the box. Great product!”
MA of Rochester, NY
“I bought the Humi-care Crystals to go along with my humidor I purchased a Tuscany Cherry 100 count humidor. I just use these crystals without the humidifier and it is at 70-72 %. It is a great.”
KM of San Diego, CA
“I bought a 300 capacity humidor. It's stable at 72 or 74. But the only problem I'm having. I have too many gars an humidifiers plus two home made humidifier. Its taken alot of space. I'm wondering if the device would work better with a fan.”
FD of Gardena, CA
“The Humi-Care crystals are the perfect no-nonsense way to keep your cigars fresh whether you're a veteran cigar collector or just starting out. It doesn't get any easier to maintain a humidor than with these. I haven't had any mold problems, which was a recurring issue with the "foam puck" humidification elements. The only downside is the physical size of the 4oz jar. If you have a smaller humidor (<100 ct) then I would recommend purchasing the CI crystals (2 oz) instead.”
BC of Portsmouth, VA
“Dont forget to add water because it will never work without it.”
LM of Fayetteville, NC
“The Humi-Care product really works. I added distilled water in the jar for a 100 count humidor. After preparing the humidor with sponge and distilled water (just follow directions that comes with new humidor) I am happy with humidity and temperature. The rectangle humidifiers that come with most humidors you have to be charged. I could not reach the desired levels of humidity with the rectangle humidifiers. I took the humidifier out (forever) and only rely on the Humi-Care jar which is what keeps my humidor at desired numbers. I highly recommend this product as it really does work. I have to admit I had little faith in the product but after experimenting it gets 5 out of 5 stars for my 100 count humidor.”
TH of Morristown, TN
“This is a great product, but there are some things you can do to make it even better. The jar takes up to much space, which leads to less room in the humidor. I took a clear plastic box that some I-bolts came in, which was more longer than wide. These boxes are also used for screws, nuts, or other hardware items you may purchase. They make them so you can get out the number of screws you need, then push the lid back down. Using the plastic box lit that is attached to the box it's self. I took a 2X4, layed the lid on top of it, and started punching lines of holes in it. Then I poured the gel beads into the plastic container then laid it on it's side in the humidor. Due to it not being wide, I have more space, and the gel still works just as good as in the jar. I got the idea from the long humidfier I ordered on CI that you lay in water for a couple of hours. It was the same principle as the plastic box I use.”
DM of Taylor, MI
“Perfect jar for everyone. Just add solution or water an your humidor becomes a Perfect enviroment. I own 3 myself almost a year ago.”
FD of Gardena, CA
“This is really great stuff! You get all the humidity you need inside a convenient jar. I got one of these for my 100 count humidor and it works great! Keeps my humidity at a constant 70%. I also love the fact that I can recharge it when it runs out. Great buy!”
ST of Fpo, AP
“Awesome product! I'm using it in the Milano Glass Top 100 count humidor. Easy to use and maintain.”
MS of Plymouth, MN
“Thanks to CI’s incredible prices, I’ve found myself greatly expanding my cigar stocks. Just as recently as 3 months ago, I was still using distilled water in the pad of my first humidor’s included humidification box. Boy, what a pain that was – constantly worrying how long it had been since I last checked the hygrometer – constantly worrying that my pad had dried out. These crystal bead jars are fantastic. I started with a second 100 capacity humidor and these 4oz jars, and realized that they were not drying out, even over the course of weeks. At 2.5 inches wide and 2.25 inches tall (with the lid off), they take up a corner, but placing them at the end of 5 inch long cigars, that fits pretty well. I recently bought a 300 capacity humidor, and use two 4oz jars in that one – mostly so I don’t have to refill as often. While I still use the hygrometers in all four of my boxes, nothing ever needs to be adjusted. I love that! Planning to take the beads out of the jar and use them in a custom plastic box? No problem, the perforated lid can be removed easily; it’s snapped in place – not welded (I was curious about that after reading the other reviews here).”
MP of Denver, CO
“GREAT PRODUCT.I USE A GLASS GAR AND DOES THE JOB. PERFECT 70/70 NO PROBLEM.SO EASY JUST FILL WITH H2O AND DONE. 100 CIGAR CAPICITY..HELLO, NO BRAINER..”
JS of Hollywood, FL
“Using only this jar in my 50 max humidor, I must say that I have had no issues with consistency in the humidity level. I see very minor fluctuations in the range, but all within the 68-72% range. I initially used the disc humidifier that came with the humidifier and remained frustrated by levels that were too temperamental. My humidor has been in use for a few weeks and was seasoned properly (by following aficionados expert advice exactly). From day one with this product, I have had nothing but perfect levels of humidity without constantly worrying about my stogies. Buy this.”
JS of Brooklyn, NY
“I just put one jar in my small humidor this morning, and already my hygrometer is reading a perfect 70-71%!! I am so happy with this product, and happy with this site!Thanks Humi-Care!”
KC of New Orleans, LA
“I had one of these in a humidor I had let sit for at least 2 years. Full of cigars.. (I know, cigar abuse) They were cheap smokes. The jar was in there, a few crumbs in the bottom.. I figured, what the heck, I'll just put some water in it to start getting this humidor back to the right moisture content. I came in the next day and opened the humidor, and it was like the Humi-Care angel came in and put all new stuff in the jar. All the 'crystals' had grown back. If your jar gets dry and looks like it's empty, just put some water in there. It's awesome! They lost a sale as I was going to replace the jar but, they gained a loyal customer. I'll put them in all my humidors now!”
PJ of VANCOUVER, WA
“Works perfect.”
AL of Chicago, IL
“I'm having a problem getting mine to 65-70%. Maybe it's a user error.”
CM of SYRACUSE, NY
“this product is great for a novice like myself. it is simple and works great in the toughest of environments.”
MS of DULLES, VA
“Works excellent and no problems at all. Keeps my humidor at the % that I need it at. Everyone who has a humidor (big enough to at least fit the jar) should own some of these. Satisfied once again CI.”
JD of Buffalo, NY
“Keeps them fresh”
HH of Fort Drum, NY
“great product, reasonably priced”
MG of Fayetteville, NC
“I just seasoned my humidor for the 48 hour mark and let the gel in for the last 24 hours to make sure everything is 100% for the cigars. Went to bed with the hygrometer reading 75%, woke up and BAM! A PERFECT 70% humidity. Been a couple days now and still a perfect reading of 70%. Havent seen it below or above 70%. Awesome product for every humidor.”
EF of Long Beach, CA
“So far so good, does the job.”
CY of APO, AE
“good stuff, buy it”
GR of Mililani, HI
“I love this addition to my humidor along with the humidifier. It does help to maintain the 70% humidity level. I am a new stoggie smoking person. I am checking my humidor everyday to insure my stoggies are in the propper range of humidity. I did buy a second one for my second humidor and I love it.”
DH of Rockledge, FL
“Good jar. I keep all of my 5 Vegas in here. Do yourself a favor and tear out the foam humi and replace it with a few humi beads.”
CM of Harlingen, TX
“These are worth their weight in gold! Work great and I find them much easier then tending a sponge. ”
KC of Mount Ephraim, NJ
“If you don't have one of these inside your humidor then there is a problem. Keeps my cigars and humidor at a perfect 70% humidity and you do not have to refill it with cigar juice every 4-5 days. Amazing product!”
ML of New York, NY
“Works perfectly. Easy, just pop it in, close the lid, done.”
DE of Newark, DE
“I am gonna keep it short and sweet....It friggin works!!! Keeps my humidor at a perfect 70 degrees and it's easy to use. I keep the crystals moist with Humi-care cigar juice. Stupid-proof way to keep your yummy cigars in pristine condition. A must for all cigar smokers.”
VM of Alachua, FL
“Love these”
MH of El Paso, TX
“Seem to hold humidity at about 68-70% using a digital hygrometer. Fairly hassle free. Mine arrived slightly dry. Just be careful if adding more distilled water or solution. They expand and can overflow from the container. I only keep the jar in a 50 count humidor. Adding additional humidification causes too much humidity. Overall a good product and low maintenance.”
PL of Northfield, IL
“Very good choice; keeps humidity perfect.”
DS of Garland, TX
“What a difference these make in my Humi. I was struggling to stay under the 75% mark with factory pads. I put these in and bam within the hour I was down to 70% and it has not moved from there. Great product.”
RA of Rapid City, SD
“Consistent 70% for my humidor!”
JK of Old Greenwich, CT
“These things are AWESOME!!! Just a word of advice though: if you attempt to drain out any excess water, MAKE SURE YOU HOLD THE VENT/LID IN PLACE! or you will be wondering if it is worth it to try and dig all the beads out of the trash can! I decided to just buy a new one. The blow the brands away.”
RS of Cerritos, CA
“This product takes all thought out of keeping the perfect amount of moisture”
SE of Beaver dams, NY
“It takes a lot to impress me enough to write a review on anything, but I gotta say these humidification elements are nothing short of miraculous. I live in AZ where temperature and humidity levels change drastically throughout the year and it has made it difficult/impossible to maintain humidity levels. I have two decent sized humidors and was having mold issues with the traditional water elements so I had to clean/sterilize the humidors and switched over to Xikar gel elements to prevent having future mold problems. Humidity levels would not rise about 60% and ended up ruining about 40 cigars. After being unable to get the humidors to achieve correct levels, I stopped storing cigars in them since I assumed it was something wrong with the humidors. After reading the reviews for the Humi-Care units I decided to give them a try. I ordered in some Humi-Care elements from CI along with a big bottle of Cigar Juice, and after getting the elements "juiced" I put them in the humidors. Within an hour both humidors were holding steady at 72% humidity. Dropped 70 cigars into the humidors and the Humi-Care elements continued to maintain 72% humidity, weeks later the humidity levels haven't budged and the stogies are resting comfortably. I don't know what is different about the Humi-Care units over others on the market, all I know is it WORKS and it works WELL. Don't waste your time with the other stuff, get a Humi-Care element and some Cigar Juice and save yourself a ton of headache. Wish I would have found this stuff years ago.”
JV of Casa Grande, AZ
“I have not had much luck with this product, unfortunately. I have a fairly large humidor and it they still takes up a lot of space, and it seems like I have to constantly refill them with water. They are a little more expensive but I would recommend the humidification packets, which seem to keep your humidor at a more constant level and leave more room to stock up on additional cigars. I've just had too many fluctuations using these to recommend them. May work better in a small humidor that isn't full and can spare the extra space.”
JC of Goddard, KS
“it seems to be working great keeps my humidor right at 69 percent”
DL of Sealy, TX
“Awesome! Just pop it in your humidor! Butterfield for President!”
MM of Black Mountain, NC
“Directions are a bit hard to read. Just add some distilled water and viola.. A+++”
SD of McKees Rocks, PA
“These are great. I filled the jar to the line with distilled water and placed them in the corner of my humidifier. I was of course leary like any cigar lover and watched over them like a mother hen. However rest assured I did get a constant 70 which is great this of course coupled with a digital Hydrometer was the key. Put these babies in and who dont have to check in for at least a month.....These are a must have.....happy smokes”
AC of Lake Mary, FL
“Just what I needed, back on track.”
KP of CALIFORNIA, MD
“Threw this in my 50 cigar humidor about a week ago and its been sitting at a solid 70%, my stock humidifier was crap compared to this! Defiantly recommend this to everyone.”
KS of Newark, NY
