No interest in cigars, but as a guitar guy we share a common obsession with humidity.
Acoustic guitars need to keep their humidity constant (more like 50 percent) to avoid cracking.
It's hard to do that in the winter when the cold temps and furnace heat can conspire to keep the room humidity at 20 percent or lower.
While we all have case humidifiers, guitar guys tend to also run a room humidifier to keep the room at a decent level to keep the cases from leaching humidity.
You can buy a decent one at Sears for $40, and if the fan is a little noisy, just run it while you're away.
And, of course, keep the humidor away from radiators or heating vents.

After Griffing saying to not use the humidifier that it comes with I did some reading and the general consensus is that unless you're leaving them in for upwards of 2 weeks you don't need humidification. They're 99% air tight so losing humidity apparently isn't much of an issue. If you're worried though you can get some beads with a set humidity and keep a tube in with your cigars

First CAO I've had and I thoroughly enjoyed it until I spilled ash all over myself, but that happens more often than not

I've never tried the CAO Cameroon but I've seen that it has good reviews and ratings. It has Cameroon wrapper with Nicaraguan filler.

CAO cigars are always good, not all are amazing, but I've never been disappointed by one
