so should/could I use a combination of kitty litter and beads ?? one to give off humidity and the other to kind of keep it in range (70%)


Different parts of the country changes temp naturally. Temperature is important but I found out temp has some thing to do with the way cigars react but your humi is what you want to watch out for. I store mine in a room in my basement the the temperature stays at 65 degrees but I watch my humi"s because of the humidifier I have with my HVC. I keep them on an inside wall where the humi stays the same as much as it can. Living in Ohio you'r temp in the house will change as the weather does just keep a look out for your humi. Fla has the humidity changes during the seasons (aka summer,hurricane season)as well as Ohio looses it in the winter but really goes up in the summer. Try to keep them at a regular humidity and all should be well. Everyone has their own way of doing it. My thought any cooler will do depending on you storage size just make sure it has a good seal. Put a piece of paper when you close the top and if you pull it it is snug your good. IMHO if you have a good seal it's a coolidor. I use the Oasis system but with different size cooler and the cigar amount I use the dfferent size Oasis'.
