For use w/ Small/Medium Cabinet Humidors (appx. 300-1000 Cigar)
The Cigar Oasis Plus 3.0 is the most powerful active humidifier for its size—perfect for end-table style humidors. While the Cigar Oasis Plus 3.0 may be the same size as the Excel 3.0, the airflow from the open vent design provides a more rapid humidification suitable for larger enclosures, chests and end table humidors.
Like all Cigar Oasis humidifiers, the Plus 3.0 comes preset to 70% RH but can always be set to your own preferred humidity level. The sensor constantly monitors the humidity which then activates the fan as needed to produce the cleanest humidity possible. The fan circulates air throughout your humidor in order to reach every cigar equally, keeping your cigars fresh, protected, and preserved for long term aging.

Very bad customer service experience here. The unit we received arrived out of calibration, reading from 6% to 10% higher than the variety of hygrometers we have tested it against. This might be tolerable if we could simply jack up the humidity setpoint to compensate but there seems to be an upper limit as we cannot get it set to more than 76%. With the error level in humidity in reading that means we cannot get the unit to maintain the 70% we target, even in a small air tight test enclosure (cooler).
Even worse is the customer service experience. The constant deflection and obfuscation from the CS rep is maddening. How old is the humidor, how was it seasoned, how big is it, what's it made of, where is it in the house, etc, etc, etc. None of these questions speak to the basic problem that it is reading the ambient humidity incorrectly. UPDATE: After numerous back & forth with the CSR, she finally provided me what I had been asking for all along - instructions to calibrate the humidity reading. The unit is now usable and doing a good job of maintaining the target humidity, so I am revising this review to raise our rating.
+4 stars for product. Thankfully I can change the humidity calibration so kudos for designing that capability into the product.
-1 star for horrible CSR. She really should consider a career change as she's not cut out for this sort of work.
Hence net rating = 3 stars
I was super excited to get this unit and it worked great for the first 6 months, but then the calibration started failing. I kept adjusting to compensate until I could no longer adjust. The calibration is now off by about 20, even with the +9 adjustment. I have 3 other hygrometers in my humidor and they're all within 1 point of each other, while the Cigar Oasis is 20 points off. I've reached out to the company with little to no help. They don't stand behind their product. If you're looking for a long term solution, this isn't it. Save your money.
