To use this unit, fill the water cartridge with distilled water – not activator solution. Pour your distilled water right into the top of the cartridge, let it sit for about 10 to 15 minutes the turn it over to let any excess water drip out. Wipe the top of the cartridge off – you don’t want any standing water in the cartridge.
Then, you’ll want to snap the control top onto the water cartridge and plug the power cord into the supplied adapter. Insert the ribbon cable into the other side of the adapter. The ribbon cable is paper-thin and can slip through a hinge or the back of a humidor – you don’t need to drill any holes and it won’t affect the seal at all.
There are two places to plug the ribbon cable into the control top – on the back and on the side – and both inputs will work the same way. The unit will turn on when you plug the ribbon cable into the control top. The up and down buttons are used to set the desired humidity and the fan will turn on and off automatically to reach and maintain the desired humidity.
What’s nice about this unit is that you can put them in your humidor straight up and down or on its side and no water will leak out.[VIDEO]Product Demonstration: Cigar Oasis XL Plus Humidifier by David Sabot
