This Boveda pack is meant for seasoning new humidors – we don't recommend using it for day-to-day cigar storage, as 84% relative humidity is too high for this purpose. Instead, have a look at the 69% version (we also stock 65% and 72% if you know you need either of them).
Boveda 60-gram packs are for full-size humidors or larger cigar storage bags.
Within an enclosed container, Boveda monitors the ambient RH (relative humidity) and adds or removes moisture to maintain the specific RH engineered into the pack. Because it's impossible for Boveda to humidify beyond the RH on the pack, it's impossible to use "too much".
The life of any Boveda depends how hard it has to work giving up moisture. When there are very few soft spots left in the Boveda, it's time for a recharge or replacement.
