Hi All,

I am new member :-)
I hope you can help me...I want to buy a new humidor that will hold say around 150 cigars...I am looking for quality more than appeareance yet within a buget- is there any online retailer or brand you can reccomend? I am based in the UK.

also: to keep the humidity inside, I know there are different methods. I am looking for the most practical and chemical free

how about I buy a Electronic Humidifier? Do you think it will be effective?

thanks in advance for taking the time to reply!

I don't know who would ship to the UK, but beads are the way to go for humidity.

Heartfelt industries sells 65 and 70% beads (also known as Silica Gel). They must be available in the UK

Thank you both for the suggestions in terms of humidity. Any other opinion are welcome.

Ben - I live in london and typically cigar shops accessories are v. expensive,I appreciate however they need to make money.. I reckon my limited budget I am better off buying online. In regard to humidity, do you have an electronic humidifier yourself?

Welcome to the forum. For a 150 count humidor, I would not suggest an electronic humidifier. It won't even fit in the humidor and will take too much space. Go with heartfelt beads, they are the most practical for your purposes and work extremely well.

What's your budget? I don't want to recommend an Elie Bleu if your budget is in line with a Daniel Marshall. Or a Daniel Marshall when your budget is in line with a Craftman's Bench.
