    I'm an idiot. I dropped (and broke) my thermometer/hygrometer while cleaning my 'bator. Now I'm having a hard time finding a new one. I found an AcuRite one on auction but the fine print said it was not suitable for incubator use. Ugh. So then I found this one. It has 2 probes for inside the terrarium and the actual meter sits outside the unit. Seems like it would work great--IF it is accurate.

    I noticed they do have a button marked "adj" which suggests they might be re-calibratable. I've found them in a couple of different places, all at about the same $19.95.

    Has anybody ever used one of these?

    No I have not. If you do go with one keep us posted. I was looking at the same thing at at our local pet store and wonder if they would work.

    I use a Fluckers that is designed for terrariums and reptile habitat. It is so far the best one I have used. I would imagine the one you describe would work fine. Having the probes is very handy.

    This was finally delivered and I've had it up and running for a few hours now. So far it is working perfectly and matches my built-in incubator thermometer perfectly. I really like that the unit sits outside the 'bator and is so easy to read!
