This is a discussion on humidor with the blue light within the Meet the Manufacturer forums, part of the Cigar Specialty Forums category; Here's another one on c-bid:
I picked up an intact box of the Pranas, just for the cool box, a while back. I sold it (intact) since it wouldn't hold humidity (mid to high 50s). That is the whole reason for a humi-box, so I contacted CAO and after a lot of BS I got another one (box only). It would maintain either (around 60%). I do think they are a cool conversation piece, but not for protection of fine cigars. That is, unless you get one that seals well...

It also came with a nice carrying case that I haven't seen pictures of.
As far as the RH goes, at the begining of the event, the RH on the box was 64%. By the end of the day with everyone opening it up, it was in the mid 50's.
I pulled the batteries out, opened the lid and put the whole unit in my coolerdor. I'll give it a few days in there and check it out again.

I saw these originally when they were unveiled at the RTDA a couple years back and must say was very impressed with the design and the pizzaz these humi's had.
Having smoked through a few Visions I found them decent smokes but the value really lies with the packaging. I hope CAO can find a way to fix any flaws the humi's may have as I really think they are a great thing to have in your collection just for collectabilities sake
I have one and it will not get above 63%. But that is where I prefer it.
Interesting because the same thing happens to mine. I was fortunate enough to purchase a box in Vegas at the Big Smoke. There was a separate cigar shop in town with a CAO event that had quite a few. He gave a great deal.
The box is very Star Trek. I have had to replace the humidipak once. But I noticed that the hygrometer does not go very high. When I contacted CAO, I spoke with one of their management. She was VERY helpful and was willing to replace the box and all. I said NAH, but was curious about the humidity level. I'm thinking about takinig the cigars out and just oohing and aahing my friends with it.
And BTW, I've only smoked one with a friend. A VERY nice smoke if I do say so.
