Cooler size question

Ok , in the next month I will be in cigar acquisition mode ...

I have one 48 qt cooler which will be filled rather quickly...

since I will have to go buy a few coolers , my question is , what size coolers seem to work best for your "normal" size cigar boxes such as Monte #2 and BBF dress boxes...

I have a humidification question.... but , that will be another thread...

Dan

100 quart is best in my opinion. Here is what I use:

100 quart igloo maxcold with two latches. I taped over the hinged small access lid on the top of the lid. Never had a problem keeping constant humidity with this model. $60 is a good price, I think.

Cool (pun intended) ,the physical size isn't bad either , I will have to check those out when I start my acquisitions ...

Just estimating but easily 30+ in the 100 quart. The 48s donít have enough room in the bottom, so you are limited. Maybe you could fit 15 if you had some serious Tetris skills

I like 48qt. I have a half dozen of em.
They stack nicely.

I use the 48qt coolers because they fit two to a shelf on the units I use in my closet-a-dor. I had to quit at 13 because I ran out of shelf space.
