Humidor won't hold above 55% humidity. Seasoned for 2 weeks with Boveda 84% packets. I tried keeping humidity with the Boveda 72%, which didn't work. Then I tried using the jar of Humicare gel beads PLUS a shot glass of water, which still didn't work. Kept around 40 cigars in humidor at all times, CI insisted I needed it fuller to keep humidity, so I purchased another 40 cigars from them, and I purchased aquarium (no taste or smell) silicone to seal the top of the humidor glass. Now I have 80 cigars dry as a bone.
Humidity % tested both with the analog hygrometer that I calibrated AND a digital hygrometer.
After all of this trial and error (including calling CI at month 3), I've given up after 4 months.
CI only offers a 30 day warranty on their humidors, so I'm SOL.
This unit will have to hit the trash, CI will give me a discount on a future humidor purchase.

I have seasoned many Humidors, and i absolutely cannot get this this Humidor to 70%. In fact, it wont even get about 55%. I do not recommend this Humidor and will try to return.
