    Looking for something that balances accuracy with cost... What do you all recommend?

    The WM here had a combo temp/humidity for $6.50 and 8.50. I started with the $6.50 and after trying 2 different batteries it would not work, so I swapped for the $8.50 by Accurate, and it is doing well.

    I just use the cheap ones they have for reptiles at the pet shop. It seems to work very well to be so cheap.

    Have any brand names? I checked my local pet shop and they had these big reptile tank kinds only...

    the cheap combos at walmart work great foe a few hatches. moisture gets in side and srews them up. gqf has a wet bulb hydrometer that is real accurate. around 25.00 comes with extra wicks. thats what i have ordered. no more shrink wrap chicks for me.
