A humidor is a box for storing cigars or tobacco products; 72 percent relative humidity is ideal, but between 68 and 78 is acceptable.

70, 70 is ideal. 70 degrees and 70 percent humidity. 72 percent humidity would be considered a MAX for storage only. Many brands will not smoke at 72%. 68 to 69 % is preferred.

A humidor is basically a special storage container. All you need to do is put the cigar in the container and make sure it is closed. For any storage more than a day, your humidor should also have a source of humidity and a gauge to show you what the humidity levels are at inside. It is also helpful to know the temperature since temperature affects humidity and high temperatures can cause tobacco beetle infestation. I recommend a digital hygrometer/thermometer for ease of use and accuracy. The gauge and humidification system that comes with nearly all humidifiers are junk. Look into jells, beads or for larger systems a 110v humidifier which uses only distilled water. A correctly regulated humidor will reward you with the fine smoking experience you are seeking.

Stale cigars should be placed in a humidor and kept at a 70% level of humidity . Cigars only have one life. If allowed to dry out or become stale, the oils dry. From that point on they are no more than rolled tobacco leaves. They can not be brought back.

I think you are referring to "dry box". 70% is the recommended humidity level for storage . The problem is for some cigars that is not the best humidity for smoking... some will barely smoke at 70%. The idea is you have two humidors, one for long term storage at 70% & one with no source of humidity. Depending on your smoking needs you keep a few in the "dry box" which will keep them protected and let the humidity level down gradually. There are as many opinions on this as there is smokers... I smoke everything I buy so I try to keep my humidor at 67 to 68%. It is helpful to have 2 separate humidors. If you have a humidity spike, you will still have something ready to smoke. Part of the intrigue is the science of the "perfect" smoke... enjoy.

Yes. A cigar case is often a humidor, but not necessarily. There are temporary protective cases for transporting cigars, but they are not meant for long term storage. Humidors are temperature and humidity-controlled, for long-term storage.

A humidor was first used at Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies starting with the 2002 season. The humidor is maintained at 70 degrees F and 50% humidity.

Nine cubic feet? Wow. Are you building this humidor yourself?If I was building a humidor that big, I would get about two square feet of the foam florists use to arrange fresh flowers in and cut it into chunks. Soak each one in 50/50 propylene glycol and distilled water, and place them in various positions in the humidor. This will help the humidity get into the atmosphere of the box evenly.
