Question about thermostats for a Diy coolerbator

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am creating a coolerbator (an incubator made out of a cooler) and I was wondering if this thermostat is sufficient :

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Thermostat-Automatic-Digital-Temperature-Controller-12V-110V-220V-Control-Switch-/380831329788?var=&hash=item58ab50edfc:m:mQoX86nuwDd0umUFamWdFqQ

If not, what do you recommend? (I'd prefer if you posted a link to the item on ebay)

Thanks!

That CAN be used, but wafer thermostats have less variance in temp. Make sure, if you do get one, that it is not just the wafer.

I am assuming the one you linked to is a knockoff of the STC-1000 water heater thermostat?

ETA: I used one in my own version of a coolerbator and I love it. It is very steady!
