I'm taking a guess here, but I believe you are asking what is the best hyGrometer, correct??

If it's hyGrometer info you seek, I am partial to Xikar, amongst their other fine products. Not too keen on what's out there on the hyGrometer market though...and yes...I am a smart a$$...sometimes...

Hah. Yes. HyGrometer is what I meant. I had a Xikar Hygrometer several years ago and couldn't seem to get it to stay accurate. Have they improved?

Im a big fan of my Xikar! Cost me 30 bones but it comes with a lifetime guarantee. Its a digital display with Temp and RH only. Its not able to be calibrated, but comes calibrated out of the box. Not sure how that works and what not, but Ive not had any problems (That I know of. Hmmm....Maybe I have and just don't know it.) I have had some people say they didn't like that type of hygrometer just because they can't be calibrated.

The way I see it is, if Xikar didn't know what they were doing they would be "calibrateable". <---(Is that a word? ) They've gotta be doing something correct.

I've been eyeing these for some time. One of these days. For me when I'm considering dropping that much money on the hobby I always find myself saying, I could buy this or x number of cigars... I'll get the cigars.

On a side note, I was at a museum this past summer and saw one of these in a display case. I thought they looked pretty cool so I went home and looked them up. Then promptly closed the page when I saw the price tag for an analog hygrometer.

for some reason reason Xikar changed the design to one that can't be calibrated. the one i have has been wrong since it came out of the box. (i have six of the old type and they work fine) as far as warranty goes the last two lighters i sent in came back to me as broken as when they were shipped off. the newer Xikar i bought this year sparks when it wants to. they have gone down the tubes IMO.

I have 4 of the HygroSet, they have a calibration function. Had to calibrate them when I bought them but in the past 18 months or so I haven't had to mess with them. I've checked them 2-3 times and they are still spot on.

http://www.amazon.com/Quality-Importers-HygroSet-Hygrometer-Humidor...

I bought a Xicar for my dad for Christmas, I tested it and it was under by 1-2% which is in their margin of error. Tested one of my HyrgoSets at the same time and it was accurate.

The HygroSet is also half the price.

Excellent, thank you! Just took delivery of a new tower humidor. Finally getting out of my coolidors. Was looking for something exactly like this so I could remotely monitor 3 zones in the tower plus a treasure dome desktop.

The new Xikar I have is 2 % off, I would go either the Hygroset or the Western Digital Caliber IV, both of them you are able to calibrate. I did a comparison of all 3 a few months back

This. Switched over to the wireless tags in November for my humidors and am very impressed. Verified temp/humidity against Xikar calibrated units and the tags are spot on accurate. Can monitor remotely as well.

The technology is solid and performs well.
