XIKAR has announced the first products of its 20th anniversary: two new accessories for humidors.


First up is the HumiFan, a battery powered fan for your humidor. Every 15 minutes, the fan will power on for 15 seconds, circulating the air in your humidor. The goal of this is to ensure that the relative humidity level within the humidor remains consistent throughout.

In many desktop humidors, the area immediately surrounding the humidification device is much more humid than other parts of the humidor.

In addition, the company has a new version of its PuroTemp hygrometer, the PuroTemp Digital Gauge Hygrometer. It is a digital hygrometer that offers reads out for humidity using a dial system, similar to a watch face or analog hygrometer.

“XIKAR is dedicated to continuous product innovation that enhances every area of the cigar smoking experience” said Kurt Van Keppel, ceo of XIKAR, in a  press release. “The HumiFan and Digital Gauge Hygrometer are two outstanding additions to our humidification system, designed to simplify cigar preservation while producing superlative and reliable results.”

Both products can be found in the XIKAR HumiKit, a package that also includes a 250-cont XIKAR Crystal Humidifier and an 8-ounce bottle of XIKAR PG Solution.

The products will begin shipping the first week of March.
