Product Review: Ammodors (Ammunition Box Cigar Humidors)

It has been 14 days since the completion of the seasoning period of the Ammodor and it is time to give you all an update and my final thoughts. I picked out 26 cigars, random cigars from my collection, and loaded them into the Ammodor. I had a 72% RH Boveda pack available, so I placed that in there as well to use as my humidification device. I closed the lid and began my testing. I decided that I would check the humidity once a day and would check it at 09:00 AM. I left the Ammodor at my office, so I did not check it on the weekends, but come Monday morning I was opening that bad boy up and taking a look at the relative humidity level. Below are my numbers from the test period. rh2bnumbers

I am pleased to say that everything worked our perfectly! Over the 14 days, the RH level readings were consistent, and the highest reading was at 73% RH with the lowest at 71% RH. The Ammodor did its job perfectly, and kept a consistent RH level in the humidor. Not only was it consistent, but it kept the RH level that was set with the Boveda pack. I know, given how great the seal is on this humidor, that the Boveda pack on the inside would last for a very long time. They average about three to four months, but this could go a whole year with no problems; possibly longer. Looking at the numbers, there is no questions that the Ammodor passed with flying colors and did exactly what it is meant to do.

While the Ammodor did exactly what any humidor is intended to do, I really like the Ammodor for what it is as well. I think the idea of turning an ammunition container into a humidor is really cool and for those who collect guns, or even have guns, this is a great humidor to have. It may not be the taste of some, but there is no doubt that a lot of people will think the idea of turning an ammunition case into a humidor is pretty sweet. I know I have used them before and while I did not keep it out on display, I don’t do that with any humidor, I loved the appearance of it. Another great quality, which is something I used the Ammodor for, is that this is really a portable humidor. With the handle, this is an incredibly effective travel humidor, and it is a travel humidor that comes lined with cedar. It is very durable, and while I would not throw it around, it can take a beating. I never found myself in a position where I was truly testing my travel humidors, call me a conservative or safe person, but this would do just as well as the travel humidors I have used in the past on travels. Overall, the price is great on these things and beside the fact that they look cool and do a great job, they can hold a crap ton of cigars. Do yourself a favor and grab one of these for personal use.
