Depends on the quantity of cigars stored, the size of the humidor, and the climate in which the humidor is placed. That said, as a general rule thumb check up on it every 2 weeks, if you shake it and it rattles (because the crystals are dry) you need to refill. I'd say you can easily get 15-20 fills out of it. I personally have had one for 2 years and it's still going strong. Hope this is helpful!

You should be good either way. Once the crystals fully absorb the distilled water they turn into a jello like substance and the moisture only evaporates but never leaks. I've had the most success hanging the device towards the top of my humidor because moisture falls.

You can use both. I usually stick with juice, but since the crystals do contain propylene glycol, distilled water will be highly effective as well.

The HX10 works ideally in medium sized humidors ranging from 75 to 125 count. If you have a larger unit, you can always use more than one. However, I would not suggest using on smaller humidors, as you will probably over humidify your collection.

Yes, the mount included is magnetic.

Yes, the unit comes with a magnet and can mount to the lid of your humidor. Make sure to give the crystals plenty of time to soak the distilled water in before attaching it to the lid to avoid spilling excess water.
