Ok so lockdown is tonight and the storm shouldn't hit me hear hard until Sunday night but it's a staggered hatch and I have eggs that should be hatching as late as Wednesday or Thursday. What if we lose power on Sunday...is there anything I can do to prepair for this or is it just all over if we lose power?

You can go and buy an inverter at walmart. It will plug into your ciggeratte lighter. Than you can plug the incubator into it. Good luck and prayers are with you through the hurricane.

Great idea --I was worrying too. I'm in southern worcester county, MA, and have staggered hatches scheduled for this week and next week.

Its a good time to compare the required wattage of your incubator... to the max wattage output of you inverter. You don't want to find out too late that you don't have enough output to run your incubator.

Ok. But what are CPU batteries?

How do I check? What am I looking for to know?​
