I have had good luck with the springfield one from walmart. It is only about $6 or $7. Some on here don't like it but it has worked fine for me.

FWIW: I tried a digital thermometer/hygrometer unit designed for a terrarium and discovered the hard way that the hygrometer didn't work if the humidity was below 40% OR the temperature was above 95. To be fair, it did say so in the fine print on the instruction sheet, but that was a little late to help since I bought it off ebay.

>>This springfield from walmart is the same one that some are selling on e-bay at more than 1/2 the price. Quite a racket they have going there.<<

Yea I have saw those as well. I have seen some of them bring 15$ or more. For a 7$ item form Wal-Mart. Maybe I should retire and start selling on E-bay.

I am using one from Wmart, but also double checking with old fashioned analog mechanical hygrometer, you can get a combo therm and hygro in wmart too.

They are not always calibrated right, but mine works fine showing increase or decrease of humidity confirming digital one reading.
