One of our favorite applications for tech is in conjunction with traditional tasks that magnify or even improve the experience. For example, cigars are still most hand rolled and packaged by people using their hands. But, there are some innovative products that make your cigar experience more enjoyable that require plugging in...

  • Cigar Oasis Ultra Humidifier: If you have ever lived anywhere that is not in Florida, keeping your cigars at the perfect humidity is a real nightmare. The Oasis makes it extremely easy to dial in the ideal humidity and make sure it stays there. Trust us, even with the advances in modern chemistry, trying to get humidor fluid to stay at the precise level needed to keep cigars is difficult.

  • Xikar Element Lighter: We love the Xikar lighter we have used over the years as they are specially designed to ease lighting cigars. The industrial design and careful thought that was put into the lighter makes lighting cigars a true pleasure.

  • Mobile Stogie iPhone App: The Mobile Stogie app intrigued us when we found it in the iPhone App store. The App attempts to be the ultimate reference guide to Cigars and allows the user to create a Cigar buying short list. We like the app for its easy ability to help reference and look up different brands of cigars.

  • Holmes Smoke Grabber Ashtray: Sometimes enjoying a good cigar with company means that you don't want all of your smoke going into the present atmosphere. The Holmes Smoke Grabber captures excess smoke when the cigar is not in your mouth and makes the experience of being next to a smoker less irritable.
