Touché. Didn't really think of it this way. Some boxes have several layers of wood though and it's all raw wood inside the box but the outside layer is painted/stained
UBC03 and BillH like this.

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.

I understand what you mean. Try just using the separators if that makes you feel more comfortable..they'll have tons of em. They give off the smell you're looking for, they can also be cut up to use as spills.

I bought 5 of these for < $1.5 each off of aliexpress. They work fine. The doofis shipped them loose in the boxes and the batteries were inserted and running, and it took nearly 3 mo. to get here (Canada Customs hold packages from Asia FOREVER). So at least I know the batteries should last that long.
On a 75% salt test they ran from 74% to 78% and on a 33% salt test they ran 34%-36%, so they are pretty accurate. They can't be adjusted, but I don't care much. They are labelled and I know which is which.
If you buy something cheap like this, don't bother with a calibration kit. Unless you like farting around I think they are a waste of money. Especially if you embark on tupperdor, get a new 65% boveda pack calibrate using that. They are +/- 2% which is good enough. I'm told you should use a new one.
If you were to take the hygrometers out of the humidor and let them adjust and put them back they may not read more accurately than 2% anyway, and again, that is good enough.
If you want a better hygro, by all means, but if you want to check several tupperdors, then these might be a good way to go. Buy a couple of extras. Put two in each tupperdor. One close to the top, one close to the bottom, see if there is a difference you might have to deal with.

thank you for this review, this is exactly the ones I was looking at eBay. Can buy seven of them for under 10 bucks

There's a new product/technology on the horizon. It's a foolproof solution to the common humidor dilemma. It's plug it in and forget about it. Add water every 2 to 3 months. Will maintain the exact same humidity in every square inch of the container and will only fluctuate when the room temperature has significant fluctuation (but will only fluctuate about 2% with a temp change of about 5 degrees).
