Spill proof.
Nice way to keep up the humidity. No spills or drips.

Works Really Well.
I like this because it is small enough to sit in line with the cigars in my humidor.

long lasting
I have the older foam liner and it does not compare to the bead version. Some of the the features I like are: . Holds humidity longer . No variance in humidity . Let's you know when to refill

Works well!
i have an old hand made humidor and have trouble keeping it humidified with the usual packets. This product has worked well for the first week.

Not working out
I have a 50-100 ct humidor. I used to use the disc humidifier that came with my humidor. I discarded it once I purchased the Humi-Care stick. It will not keep the humidity where it needs to be. Very displeased with this product.

Excellent product
Does what it's intended to do, cigar assortment was great as well

Great product! I have several in use.
I like these because they don't take up much room. I primarily use these as a team with a 69 Boveda pack, in sealed humis like my ammo cans.. They work great! keep a good constant rh, and will last for months when paired with the boveda (for a humidity "ceiling") in an ammo can or tupperware. In my standard 30-50 wooden humi, they last about a month before needing a recharge, which takes all of 10 seconds. Just look for the crystals to shrink up.

Space saver and effective.
Very effective for small humidors (25 cigars). The price is nice also.

Great product
I got this in quick and it has been great to add to my 100 count Man O' War Humidor that I got from CI, which is beautiful by the way. This is a great product to fit in a 100 count humidor to add extra stability to your humidor.

HUMI-CARE Power Stick Humidifier
So far so good. The first one I got molded after a month using just as directed. CI's customer service was great and sent a replacement. This one is still clean and holding humidity.

Powerful Stick
I placed this in my 50 count humidor which I use to put the cigars I have not tried yet, the test box per say. It has kept my humidity at 70% in the Western area of Texas which is VERY dry. Great buy for little money and helps keep the investments in good order.

Great, and Compact!
I like this thing. It is running a solid, steady 70ish rh in my 50 count cedar humi, and the same in both my ammo can humi's.. Fills up quick, and lasts a long time. In the ammo cans, I use one along with a boveda pack to regulate just right seeing how it's in a sealed container. Takes up the same room as a robusto or toro. I have recommended them to others, and bought multiples at different times.. Just a good product to have if you want to keep your sticks happy.

I had an electronic humidifier that just could not maintain humidity. These chemical humidifiers are doing the trick. Great product! MD

Bud Thompson-HUMI-CARE Power Stick
I like this humidifier for it's compact and doesn't take up a lot of room in my box.. I don't have a large humidor and it seems to do the job just fine..not sure how long it last for though.

Gets it done.
I've never been a big fan of the traditional way to keep moisture in a humidifier. When Humi-Care came out with these sticks, I bought a few. You can tell at a glance if they need refilling and they fit in my humis just like a cigar. Great product.

They work perfectly in a 50 cigar humidor
1 in each of my 50 cigar humidor keeps the hygrometer in the perfect range. So far one fill up has lasted a month.

Power Stick Humidifier
What a great little humidifier! Keeps my smokes fresh and doesn't take up much room. Great buy!

Great little Humidifier
I have a relatively small humidor that holds about 20 cigars. So far, this Humi-Care Power Stick works great. It's the perfect size and it doesn't require velcro or any type pf adhesive to hold it in place. When I added distilled water, I could feel the weight change as the crystals inside expanded and absorbed the water. Three weeks later I went to add water and it was still basically full. Great addition to my humidor at a great price.

Decent humi stick
Works as advertised. Sometimes the gel beads swell too much and ooze out of the top mesh, but when they dry they retract back in.
4 out of 5
Works Great for smaller Humidors or Humidors with drawers, where hight is an issue.
They work great in drawer humidors, just need refreshing with distilled water more often because of their size.

HUMI-CARE Power Stick Humidifier
Too hard to fill up. The holes are small and constantly spill into the humidor. Maintains humidity well though.

Worthless
Was extremely disappointed with effectiveness. Cigars still seemed to dry out rather quickly even though had 3 humidifier sticks in my humidor.

Humi-care power stick humidifier
Wonderful product. Really helps my humidor stay moist!

Great additional element
Sits nicely in the bottom of my humidor. Takes up very little space.

Nice things come in small packages
Needs refilling more frequently than I'd expected, but otherwise does the job while taking up very little space

Great Humidifier
The Power Stick seems to work very nicely to keep the humidity at 70%. Will buy more as needed. Having said that I also purchased the Humicare HX-10 which once loaded with the cigar juice jumped the humidity in my large humidor to an unacceptable level of over 80%. I have removed it and allowed it to be in the open air with the hopes that it will eventually settle down to a proper 70-72%

Great product. Would definitely purchase
Great product. Would definitely purchase again

DOES THE JOB
For a small strip it keeps my stoogies at 75. For the price, ya can't beat it. Will buy another one for my other humi.

Perfect for 30-50 count humidors.
I have had mine for about a month and it's been working great. I have a smaller humidor so this takes up way less space than the "jar" style humidifiers so I can pack my humidor full of the GOODS!!

compact humidification
This takes up far less space than other humidifiers for 50 cigars; humi-care quality reputation

Great little Humidifier!
Purchased this for my 40 count humidor I purchased through Cigars International. Very slim and doesn't take up a lot of room in the Humidor which is great. Keeps the humidor at 68% all week long. Recommend this little one for a small humidor :)

Simple stick perfect for your 50-count humidor
Works great. Much better than the green floral foam ones I've used before. My humidor got to a perfect 70% faster than any other humidifier I've had before.

Power stick works well
I purchased this for my 50 count humidifier and it works well. I only fill it monthly or less.

Perfect for the smaller humidor!
I have one in a 20-ct humidor and one in a 40-ct humidor and have no problem maintaining 70/70 here in Southern California. Right now that the heat has really picked up, I'm adding distilled water about every 15 days or so. They save space and get the job done!

Humi-Care Power Stick saves my humidor
I was having problems maintaining the proper RH in my humidor as the volume of cigars was going up and down. I added 1 Humi-Care Power Stick Humidifier and like magic... a perfect 70% RH. It's been in there for 3 weeks now and I still haven't had to add water to it. I strongly recommend these to help control the humidity. It saved all of my cigars.

Great for the price
I use 2 in my table top humidor because I live in Phoenix and they keep the humidity constant with a once a week fill up.
Customer Testimonials
I had to wait for over a month to get this product, because as soon as I placed the order it went on backorder. This sucker is apparently popular. And for good reason. If you are ordering a small 50-count humidor for the first time, you may want to wait until you can afford to add one of these to your order (and hope it doesn't get put on backorder). I chose not to do that and lived through a few months of babysitting my humidor almost daily in an effort to keep it at something near proper 70% humidity using that stupid, crappy, waste-of-space humidifier that comes standard with most humidors. As soon as this baby came in, my babysitting days were OVER. I could add a little distilled water and sit back and relax for at least 10 days. I added a little moisture to the stick before going on a nine-day vacation over the holidays and came home to find that my little humidor was still sitting spot-on at 70% humidity. It was another 4 or 5 days before I decided I should add more distilled water. The only complaint I have is that the plastic container is a little too opaque to easily see how much liquid you are adding to the stick. The first time I added water I must have overfilled (a common complaint), because beads started popping out of the stick. I was able to push most back in and, as I said, it still works great. I wish Humi-Care would take the time to read their reviews, because this is an easy fix. Either make the plastic less opaque or add an obvious "fill line" or both. Either than that, it is a great product. If you are purchasing a new small humidor, save yourself heartache and babysitting time, keep your 'gars fresh, throw away the piece of junk that comes with the humidor, and use the Power Stick!
Is easy to use, but I needed 3 to get 70% in a small humidor. I bought the 4oz jar; it is better. But these are handy to keep on hand in the event ya need a boost. Thanks
Great product, much better than having to recharge the old green sponge every couple days and it keeps the humidity right at 70 with no problems.
This is an excellent idea for any humidor. Takes up very little space and does a big job of keeping cigars moist. I really appreciate these better than any other humidifier, especially when you have a small humidor.
I needed a humidifier for my small tabletop humidor, and this was just what I needed. Takes up hardly any space and keeps the humidity around 70%. Great product!
This product makes life so much easier, less trouble.
This little thing keeps my 50 count humidor perfect. Before I had this, I was reading way to high. Now I am reading 70/70. Perfect humidification device.
A decent piece of equipment. Holds relative humidity pretty darn good but I am having to re-saturate the device more often than I would like. Price is good value though.
Great product! Installed this in a no name 25-50 ct. humidor and within 24 hours it is holding at 70% humidity and holding strong. Highly recommend it!
It seems to work well. It is very compact, which I love. I use it in combination with a humi care bead jar to keep my 35-50 capacity humidor (Yukon Cherry) at 67-69%. With a better humidor this device alone might be sufficient, but due to its small size I see it as a great secondary to get that last bit of humidification just right.
Quick easy efficient
All I can say is throw away those humidifiers and make your humi simple and easy !! These are the bomb !! That is all !!
I purchased this because I didnt trust the green foam, and I am glad I did. It keeps a steady 69% humidity for about 45 cigars.
Works great. I recommend it.
I am a big fan of the Humi-Care water pillows & use them in every humidor I own. About 6 months ago I placed an order that included a freebie Humi-Care Power Stick Humidifier. I powered it up with distilled water & put it in opne of my problem humis. A 30 count Cigar Band type. The problem is that it does not have piano hinges or Sure Seal technology. As a result, keeping a constant humidity level is difficult, unlike my Yukons or Tuscany boxes. Long story short, I popped the Power Stick into this less than perfect humidor & monitored the humidity level for a week. Within a day, the box reached 70% humidity & stayed there for the next 6 days. I refilled it & it lasted for over 3 weeks before a third recharge was needed. Now, 6 months later, I am still using it in that humidor & it performs just a well as the first day it went in. I have decided to use 1 in all of my boxes, so I ordered 3 more at a discount price from Make Me an Offer. At 30% off the regular price, this promises to be not only the most effective method of keeping my humidors in shape with a minimum of effort, but the least expensive alternative too. Give 1 a try & see if you agree that Humi-Care Power Stick Humidifiers are a big step forward in the technology of humidifier humidity control.
Packs a punch to be so small.
I bought two of these to help with the humidity of my big humidor and it works quite well. Its compact and does a great job even distributing the humidity. Good buy thanks CI!
I bought a 40 count travel case, ( I'm always on the go) that ended up not having built in humidification. No problems... the Power Stick fits perfectly one of the cigar slots, and keeps every stick in perfect condition.
Great price for storage
nice little humidifier fits right in my 20 count humidor got to wait to see how good it does
I got one of these and it worked great until it dried out...I can't find the gel balls any more, I went to refill it and the thing is empty. I don't know what I did wrong.
Great way to keep your humidor at 70 degrees.
Awesome little guy, keeps my sticks at a perfect 68-70% humidity. Definitely recommend this for small to medium humidors.
Great product by Humi-care. I have been very happy with all the products I have bought from Humi-care and this is no different. It works great and the crystals absorb water fast and hold the humidity for a long time.
Humi-Care Power Stick + Cigar Juice = Knockout Combo. I have trouble keeping my humidor around 70% humidity out here in the desert. After I charged up the Power Stick with Cigar Juice, my humidor now maintains a steady, suitable environment for maintaining my cigars.
Overfilled my jar of Humi-Care gel and poured out the excess water into the sink and out went all of the gel with it. Too clumsy for the jar, decided to go with the Power Stick and it's great! Impossible for crystals to fall out and maintains perfect humidity! Keeps my 50 ct around 70%
Awesome idea! I bought it for my Whitetail Desktop Humidor (50ct). I unpackaged it, filled it with distilled water per instructions and in 20 minutes it was ready to be installed. I used 3M Command Velcro medium strips and installed it on the front inside part on the lid. Works like a charm and can easily be removed and reinstalled for refilling, plus its so slim you can't even see its there! Works great and I highly recommend giving this a try in your smaller units!
