How much do I need for my Humidor?
Here are some approximate quantities for various containers.
5 cubic feet requires 1 pound of humidification beads.
One pound of beads per 50 quarts (coolerdors)
One important thing to remember, the is no maximum amount of beads that you can use. If your humidor calculates to 1 ounce there is no problem using 2 ounces. The additional Heartfelt Humidity Beads will just give you more moisture storage. It will also help your humidor recover quicker after you open the humidor, twice as many beads doing the same work. The extra Heartfelt Humidity Beads will not over humidify your humidor, it will still stay at the level of the beads (60%, 65% or 70%) that you use.

Measure the depth, width and height of you humi (example is 24” depth, 36” wide and 48” height)
Multiply the three:
24x36x48=41472 cubic inches
Multiply this by .00185185 (ounces needed per cubic inch); 41472x.00185185=76.799 ounces
Divide this answer by 16 (ounces in a pound); 76.799/16=4.79
You would need 4.79 pounds of Heartfelt Humidity Beads for this humi.
Lets do a smaller humidor;
10x9x6=540 cubic inches
Multiply this by .00185185 (ounces needed per cubic inch); 540x.00185185=0.999 ounces
You would need One Ounce of Heartfelt Humidity Beads for this humi.
