Seasoning the NewAir CC-100H CC-300 with Boveda

How many 84% Boveda seasoing packs do I need to put in each to season them correctly?

A lot!

Better off IMO just putting in bowls of distilled water with clean sponges floating in them (for better dispersion). With shelves and drawers you can also wipe them down fist to help speed it along. Some may disagree on that, but unlike wooden humidors the wood is not involved in the seal. It's the risk of warping the seals that is the basis for recommendations against wiping humidors down with DW.

It took my cc300 about a week with one bowl of DW and no wiping.

Depends on how many forms your ask this question on...

You were given great advice on the other...and Curmudgeonista gave you the same exact advice here.

I don't know what I don't know.

In my cooler I wiped the inside with DW, then each drawer/ shelf with a sponge dampened with DW letting them dry then installing into the cooler. I then used a small container with DW in the bottom, turned it on let it sit until RH stablilized. I added two 65% Bovedas on each shelf or drawer. Once RH was where I wanted I added the cigars. after two weeks I took out the DW and have only used Bovedas since. Mine is a Whytner cigar cooler and that’s very similar to what thay directed.
It works great!

Coolers are completely different than a Wooden Humidor.

does it matter how much water I put in the bowls? and how many bowls?

So after I wipe all the wood down, wait for it to dry before putting it back in? or can I put it in before ? I'll be putting 69% into mine
