In addition, the housing has been streamlined to allow for faster and more effective air travel. "We realized that the Magna was being used primarily by retailers in their cabinets which are opened rather frequently, so they needed more power to quickly recover that lost humidity, especially on the higher shelves," says Chaim Kohn of Cigar Oasis. "In keeping with the sealed design, the Magna 2.0 will still work just as well in a personal tower humidor and will never run the risk of over humidifying." These upgrades further advance the Cigar Oasis Magna as a staple for any cabinet humidor— for retailers or connoisseurs alike. The Magna 2.0 MSRP is staying the same at $199 and the improved model is currently shipping.
