January 9, 2014 (New York, NY) — Cigar Oasis is pleased to announce an update of its entire line of electronic humidifiers. The new units incorporate cutting edge technology and features that help today’s cigar smokers keep their cigars fresh without the hassle of constant monitoring. Cigar Oasis, the original developer and leading manufacturer of electronic humidifiers for the cigar industry, has once again raised the bar for active, controlled humidification for the cigar smoker.

The new features include temperature reading, hi/low memory and 3-day averages for humidity, as well as low battery and low water alarms. With the exception of the largest humidifier (Magna) they will also have the ability to run using a lithium-ion rechargeable battery.

And last, but certainly not least; all units can now be connected to an optional Wi-Fi module, which provides access to the unit via website or smartphone apps for both IOS and Android users. This module will allow the user to monitor the current humidity and temperature reading, as well as view a recorded history of previous readings. The user will also be able to set alerts for irregular humidity and temperature readings, low water and low battery, and change the humidity settings remotely.

The next generation lineup will also have new names:

  • Cigar Oasis Ultra 2.0 – Designed for up to 100 cigar count humidors (desktop)
  • Cigar Oasis Excel – Designed for up to 300 cigar count humidors (large desktop)
  • Cigar Oasis Plus – Designed for up to 1000 cigar count humidors (end table-up to 10 cubic feet)
  • Cigar Oasis Magna – Designed for cigar cabinet/armoire humidors up to 60 cubic feet

Products are expected to begin reaching premium tobacconists in February 2014.

“Once again Cigar Oasis is leading the field of active cigar humidification” says Al Foundos, President of Cigar Oasis, Inc. “We have made a significant investment to continue to provide the most accurate and reliable humidifiers with unequaled performance and features for today’s cigar smoker.” 

Cigar Oasis introduced the first ever electronic humidifier in the 1998 RTDA and has enjoyed excellent acceptance and accolades by users worldwide. With active sales in the US at first then Europe, Asia, and now South America, Cigar Oasis has become the electronic humidifier of choice worldwide.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
