    I'm sure y'all have answered this before but I'm terrible confused. I can't figure out the temperature.

    Bator: Brinsea Octagon 40 eco
    Factory installed therm: 100.5
    Accurite indoor-outdoor: 98
    Other sensor on other end of bator: 97
    Baby bottle of water with a "lid" tested with a pediatric therm: 95.4

    It's all been together and running for a couple days now, temps are stable and the environment is the warmest andost stable I have available. Why the huge discrepancy? Which one should I believe?

    Have you thought about averaging the temp.?:) I would believe the factory installed one but want to hear what others think.
