first, relax, your cigars will be fine, a few weeks or more with the humidity low won't ruin them. Trust me from experience. Really they are tougher than you think. The containers they get shipped in and the planes they get sent in don't have beads, credos, or anything.

second, how many cigars does your humi hold? If it is large to huge I would consider active humidification (the deal with the motor, fan, and a water reservoir) like Cigar Oasis).

I used credos and sponges with 50/50 for years and I gave up and went to beads (I use kitty litter), they work well and are easier in general to use (unless you spill them on a tile floor). My cabinet humidors (now in storage) used active humidification like a cigar store uses. Those hold I think 2500 cigars each.

Boveda plus credo makes no sense at all like Big John explained, great idea but won't work.
