Hi All,

Buy at your own risk.... I did, but I am willing to try it out, see below and read some reviews(i didnt).. :/



I have been wanting to try out the boveda butler and foxcigar just sent an email out that they got them back in! They are also offering a free cigar with the purchase. It also include a calibration kit... (perfect to test out my other digital hygrometers). Not a bad deal.

I haven't used the Boveda Butler, but have seen lots of people struggling to get it working correctly. Not sure if they are provide firmware updates, or if this is a newer version, but I'd look into users experiences before buying.

Or just pull the trigger and try it out.

Boveda Butler is a POS. You can't calibrate it, and Boveda won't stand behind their product even when the humidity reading is off by 7%. If it was FREE it would still not be a good deal!

I guess I should have checked out the reviews, so far lots of people not able to calibrate.... I use bovedas in my reach in humidors and trust them(well to humidify). But crap. Sorry.

I have seen a few guys says it takes longer to calibrate.... well maybe it will work?

I REPEAT . . . you cannot calibrate the Butler. Its false advertising. They include a calibration kit (which is a 75% Boveda in a ziplock bag), and you stick the Butler in it for 24+ hours and your phone says "finished", but if the BUTLER is reading 82% after 2 days inside the 75% "calibration kit", there is no way to actually calibrate the Butler to bring it to down to 75%. I guess you can just subtract 7% every time from the reading, but it kind of defeats the whole purpose and certainly any "wow" factor.

I bought 2 units at the same time. One is off by 1% (acceptable) and the other is off by 7% (unacceptable). Looking at the readings from multiple units on the same screen on my phone and figuring out which one I have to subtract 7 from every time is a pain in the ass.

ok, I have been using mine for the last few weeks and so far it calibrated just fine and has been reporting the "correct humidity(within +-1)" and it also tracks the humidity over time in the app. So far it is performing way better than expected. I also calibrated my other electronic bt sensors and they are also how I evaluate the boveda sensor. Holding steady at 66%
