Xikar’s founder Kurt Van Keppel and lead designer, Scott Almsberger, took Xikar from a small, garage-based concern to one of the world’s leaders in precision cigar accessories. While the Xikar story began with cigar cutters, it now includes some of the most popular and most reliable hygrometers on the market. One of the favorites is the Xikar PuroTemp Digital Gauge Hygrometer.
The digital hygrometer delivers high-quality measuring power for humidity as well as temperature. With a relative humidity range of 20% to 95%, the device can handle almost any condition and is guaranteed accurate to within +/- 2% relative humidity. Temperature, your choice of Fahrenheit or Celsius, is guaranteed to be within +/- 1 degree. That’s right out of the box, no calibration is necessary!
A wider display area makes for a more contemporary look to your humidor, with a magnet attachment and tapered back, allowing the device to fit in almost any humidor with space for a standard small-size hygrometer. Checking temperature takes just a glance, and a cleverly designed digital “dial” readout simulates the analog style of classic hygrometers with a perfectly modern twist.
The PuroTemp Digital Gauge Hygrometer is a sophisticated and easy-to-use tool that lets you focus on enjoying the overall cigar experience without worrying about the state of your cigars. When replacing the battery, Xikar recommends using a button cell CR2025 or equivalent.
