Active or Passive Humidification?

If you're investing a few hundred dollars in a real cigar humidor, one decision you're going to want to make is whether you want active or passive humidification. Active humidifers are electronic humidifiers that set and keep an exact level of humidity inside your humidor. These are typically used in large cigar humidors, but can be found in smaller models. Be prepared to pay big for a humidor with active humidification. More common are cigar humidors with passive humidification. These use simple vapor conduction principles to keep the humidity inside your humidor stable and your premium cigar brands nice and moist.
