A: Since this unit isn't overly large, I would probably stick to a crystal/bead system. You could go electronic, but that would take up a decent chunk of real estate (and they can be a pain in smaller units such as this). I would recommend either Humi-Care Crystal Jar, Humi-Care HX10 or the new Humi-Care Black Ice (great at conserving space). Just depends on which shape tickles your fancy. Our humidors are pre-packed in boxes from the manufacturer. If you experience ANY issue with your humidor upon receipt, call us. We'll set up an exchange and make sure you get a unit that is 100% to your liking.
