Question about humidifiers

Are there any where you just set where you want the humidity (a dial or digital) and you just leave it be?

Cigar Oasis for coolers/small-med desktops. Canister style from Bob, Matt or Arlin (I'm sure there are others) for Large cabinet humidors.
The one I've got from Bob @ Aristocrat does an excellent job other rave about Matt @ Avalo's.

This is one of the advantages of Climmax media. You just add water and it controls to 65% RH or 70% RH depending on which version you use...No need to dial anything in - just put it in the container and forget it for a few months...In desktop humidors, however, the Cigar Oasis might have the advantage of taking up less space and having faster response time.

I gotta disagree Phil. I've experimented with Climmax in my desktops. It requires very little media to keep a 65%RH. The Climmax thin humidifier is working just fine in 2 of my large chest types. In a lid mount, it takes less space than a credo rectangle. It's thinner. In my large glasstop I put media in 2 of the small Nintendo cartridge cases. It seems to be fine. For a small desktop, a large tubo would probably work well.
If I had a cabinet, I'd try a couple of largest size. One high and one low.
Yes, I really like the Climmax!

You are quite right of course. I use Climmax in my desktop too...Although, I find that those thinner Climmax humidifiers just don't have sufficient capacity - I end up having to watch the humidity closer and add water more often. I use the Climmax media in cloth bags and I use considerably more media than is contained in those Climmax humidifier elements.
