320-gram Boveda

You asked for it. And now it’s here.

Cigar fans have been asking for something bigger than our 60-gram Boveda.  Some fans wanted to further reduce the 57 seconds it takes every few months to change their humidor’s Boveda and some needed a more practical way to Boveda-fy large coolers, humidors and cabinets. We listened.

 

One 320g is the equivalent of five 60-gram Boveda (because the 60-gram are officially 67 grams). But the 320g isn’t just for large containers or humidors! Boveda can absolutely be used in small humidors for ultra-simple aging perfection because it will never humidify beyond the RH on the pack. As always, using more than the minimum Boveda amount will just last longer and work more efficiently.

Here’s the math:

  • *25 count humidor – One 60-gram lasts about 3 months. One 320g will last about a year.
  • *50 count – Two 60-gram lasts about 3 months. One 320g will now last about 6 months.
  • *100 count – Four 60-gram lasts about 3 months. One 320g will last about 5 months. Heck, toss another 320g in there for about a year of aging perfection!

 

Think of it like this: one 320g is good for up to 125 cigars in a wood humidor. Up to 250 in something more efficient, like a cooler or well-sealed wineador.

We’ll first release cigar-related RH levels before also releasing Herbal-friendly levels to make mass curing incredibly simple.

What makes Boveda’s Calibration Kit our most important product?

Boveda fans occasionally ask, “What’s your most important product?” I think the Calibration Kit is our most important product because it’s objective proof that only Boveda can precisely control moisture. No sponge, gel, bead or imitation product marketing themselves as “2-way humidity control” make a Calibration Kit, because their contents don’t have the ability to control moisture.

The science community recognizes a saturated salt solution as the only way to control moisture in a chamber, package or container because it’s the only way to add and/or remove moisture and maintain a precise humidity level. That’s 2-way humidity control. 19 years ago, Boveda patented the way to package 2-way humidity control and we still hold those patents today. But that hasn’t stopped imitation products from making Boveda-level claims.

Why should you care about the “science community” when you’re storing cigars, guitars or herbal medicine? Because the science community doesn’t deal in marketing. They deal in repeatable results through rigorous testing.

The same technology we use in the Calibration Kit is used in all Boveda products – a salt solution – meaning the patents that protect our technology for Calibration Kits protect us in the effortless aging of cigars, proper guitar storage, the curing/storage of cannabis and all the other industries we operate.

Can you get by with “competing” products? Sure, in the same way you can get away without a seat belt. By the time you wish you were using Boveda or a seat belt, it’ll be too late.
