    I just got my Brinsea today and would really like to use a hygrometer with a probe, since there's absolutely NO room inside the Brinsea for a hygrometer. What is the best one to use? I'd like to order one ASAP.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    I'd really like to be able to measure my humidity and DO NOT want a hygrometer that goes inside the incubator. I'm sure someone here must have some recommendations...PLEASE?

    I believe Brinsea sells one that has a probe. Check their website and see.....

    I called Brinsea today to ask the very same question about the Eco 20 and they said the wet bulb thermometer they sell does NOT fit the Eco 20, and they don't sell one that does. They suggested getting one at Radio Shack or WalMart.

    Good luck,

    I just go to the pet store and get a little round reptile one...they work good and dont take up much room at all...You could even lay them on top of your eggs if your bator is full. Let me see if I can go find a pic.

    OK here is a pic, a bit blurry, but you can see it...

    Edit to add: the white thing in the middle is a sticky dot you can use to stick it on stuff but I found that it falls off after a while.
