Boveda Butler

Do you guys have experience with Boveda Butler? Is it worth getting? Wanted to see what you guys with more experience think.

Why pay for that when you can literally lay em in top of the cigars. Plus cigar real estate is premium. That's why we use boveda.

I kinda nerd out in stuff like this (I have the SensorPush pucks too), so here's my 2 cents: Even though this thing is super cheap ($17 shipped w/boveda cal kit), I dont like it. The app always runs in the foreground and it gave me low battery notices after 2 weeks. The SensorPush have been running over 2 years on the same battery and I like the interface more.

Here's how not tech I am.. thought that it was the wooden thing guys glue to their humidors to keep bovedas..

Oh well, I'll go back into my cave and finish my brontoburger.. lol

It was included in my purchase, but it's super flaky. Replaced the battery once and can't connect to my phone again. I use boveda packs, so I don't even care what this thing shows. I would not spend money on it.

I have four of them and now after six months I wish I didn't bother. The app has locked up my phone on numerous occasions. I've had to recalibrate them twice already too.

Do you have an iOS or Android?

Oh boy! I feel like I made a bad choice here. I bought one from cigar fox yesterday. The price was unbelievable, but now I feel this was a bad choice.

Android. I switched to the new 320 gram Boveda packs six months ago too. Supposedly those last up to 2 years before needing a recharge. They have held 65% humidity since I started using them. I'm ready to just take out the butlers and remove the app off my phone. Hopefully you have better luck
