Wireless Humidity Alarm Averts Disaster
Monitoring humidity levels of a cigar requires constant attention: forget to check, and your entire cache of cigars can quickly become ruined. The Cigar Sentry is a simple to use, two-piece electronic alarm that continually monitors humidity conditions in desktop humidors, countertop display cases, floor-standing humidors, and even walk-ins. A battery-powered, micro-processor-controlled sensor with a 50 foot range transmits humidity status to a plug-in receiver. Color-coded lights indicate whether humidity levels are optimal (green) or require adjustment (red). An optionally-activated audible alarm, low battery alert, and self-test mode ensure fool-proof operation. Suggested retail, $149.

On the Go with The Transport
For top-notch protection when traveling with up to three 7.5 in. x 54 ring gauge cigars, consider Mr. Moisture, a solid body, poly-carbonate cigar case with built-in humistat. A clear, locking cover lets you see inside without disturbing the contents, which will remain properly humidified for up to ten days.

Colibri All Terrain Lighter
The All Terrain Lighter (ATL) from Colibri is one remarkably versatile all-purpose tool. Equally at home in the city as it is in the wilderness, this wind-proof lighter can be used to light, open, screw, cut, and even help your find way home. The all-purpose tool comes in five finishes, all with silver accents: rubberized black, silver satin, red lacquer, blue ice, and white satin. Suggested retail is $89.50. The Colibri Group, Providence, R.I.; Tel: (401) 943-2100; Fax: (401) 944-9970.


Room for Accessories
Anyone who’s ever tried to keep their cutters and lighters close to their humidor knows they have a tendency to end up elsewhere. Don Salvatore offers a traditional chest-style or contemporary upright humidor with a handy felt-lined accessory drawer to keep important smoking items close at hand. Spanish cedar lines both models, which are equipped with gold-plated quadrant hinges, hygrometers, and humistats, available in black, cherry finishes. Traditional units hold 40 cigars. Upright models hold 25 cigars, and are also available in burl finish. Buddy Products, Chicago, Il. Tel: (312) 733-6400, Fax: (312) 733-8356, www.buddyontheweb.com.
