Boveda Butler calibration
It was time to recalibrate my to Boveda Butlers so I went online and bought a bunch of 32% and 75% Boveda packs. Iíd previously only done the 1-point calibration at 75% but thought Iíd give the 2-point process a go. I put both BBís in a bag along with my Hygroset digital hygrometer.
Everything worked fine at 75% but when I went to 32 all three hygrometers were reading in the 38-41% range. The Boveda app gave me a warning that the proper humidity level hadnít been reached and an option to try again. Thinking it was just a dud 32 pack, I put a new pack in and put everything in a different bag, sealed it and started again. Same result...
I contacted Boveda and told them about my troubles. Basically my thought was the 32% packs I bought werenít really at 32% and I thought maybe theyíd send me some new ones. Instead, I was told that the Boveda Butler doesnít support 2-point calibration and I should contact the creator of the app, Bluestream, so they could access my sensor and ensure it was calibrated correctly.
I think Iím still in a dialogue with Boveda (assuming I didnít piss them off with my last reply) and Iím hoping Iíll still learn something useful. That said, they still havenít addressed the incorrect readings of the 32% packs and I think they at least owe me a response for that. Additionally I suggested they remove the option for 2-point calibration if their hygrometer doesnít support it.
So... has anyone successfully calibrated their Boveda Butler using the 2-point process?
