    Awesome. Thank you for the link and your research ol' man. That seems to be exactly what I'm looking for.

    Definitely an ‘us’ on the OCD growers comment. I didn’t realize what they were from the first picture but the follow-up pic with all of the lids looks awesome, I am going to get me some of those. I will still keep some cheap plastic ones as I have a tendency to give them away with a moisture packet when I give a jar of stuff that may not yet have fully cured to close friends but those lids are going to stay with me!

    Thanks quirk and grouchyoldman for highlighting a pretty cool product.

    I ordered a set of HyLids from Matt at Hylids,com today. He offered to send me some of each, analog & digi Hylids, to compare. Not shilling, but this is potentially a really great product for OCD Curing Karens like me (Us?). An accurate RH reading on the top of each lid in my "Library" of Post-Legal CannaGrows? Hells Yes! BUT, let's see if these are as good as they sound.

    I did learn that the digital versions are not "adjustable" so you can't change the readout to be +/- a salt test calibration. The Analog one's can be adjusted and the HyLids owner says, "analog hygrometers are my favorite because they use the traditional way of measuring moisture in the air (by expansion and contraction of a copper spring)."

    Here's a link to the HyLid hygrometers. I didn't realize how useful these are until I had a closer look at your picture! They are actual Ball Jar lids with a hygrometer built in! Perfect for curing purposes and $49 for a pack of six lids seems very reasonable. Digital & analog models available. I'm putting my order in.

    I wrote Mason jar while I meant Ball Jar. Thank you for the info on how to post a link. I sure like it when they're included.

    grouchyoldman, while I'm not grouchy, I am a senior septuagenarian and don't know how to post a link. I purchased off their website, as the were a couple of bucks cheaper than I found elsewhere and had free shipping. It's the analog model that fits the wide mouth, quart mason jar.

    quirk, I'd like to try a mechanical model, do you have a link or Model for the one in the pic?

    Yep
    I’ve used Boveda packs for several years in my jars and they keep terpenes strong and the weed sticky.

    I’m with you, boveda rocks and all my jars get one!

  • grouchyoldman

    DeadlyFruit, good call!

    That's actually what I do as well once I've calibrated a new batch of them. People disagree about Boveda, but I'm a fan and pretty much every jar gets a packet. Cheap insurance I reckon.

    Your test is more exact than mine but I just throw the hygrometer in a jar of well cured bud that I know has stabilized and contains a 62% boveda pack and another hygrometer showing it is stable at 62%. If the new one goes to 62% then it is golden. I know this is not a perfect test but it would be pretty unlikely to be out by much. It is good enough for my purposes.

    Just a followup suggestion on using cheap, non-adjustable hygrometers.

    Buy one of the more expensive adjustable hygrometers like the Caliber IV and adjust it with the "Salt Test." Then use the calibrated unit to note how much each of the cheapos differ. Mark each of those with the RH % correction needed and you're good to go.

    As you can see in the pic, most of the little ones are pretty close right out of the box. If any budget models are off by more than 4% I save the batteries then throw the unit out.

    Agree with grouchy if they are meant for your jars when curing. The cheap ones have so far been more than good enough for that purpose. I don’t think they’ve ever been out very far. For my grow room I use controllers that can measure RH and power up my humidifier/dehumidifier as needed (I use Inkbird controllers as they are decent price and seem to work well but there are probably others out there). I find that it is difficult to determine which one is most accurate because it can vary greatly depending on where in the room they are. Even the fans moving air will change the RH constantly by a little as they oscillate.
