Do i want the one for single or double element??
Not sure, but probably depends on how it is going to be applied and wired.
Double element thermostats are common in hot water heaters which have
two heating elements.
In a bator you only need a single element but it should be the most precise
one you can find. You want one with a narrow differential, which is the range
it turns on and off.
For example, most Lowe/Home Depot type tstats may turn on at 95 then off at 105.
You want one that turns on at 98 and off at 101. The temps I list are examples
and may need to be changed for your bator.
I hope this makes sense from a half asleep electrical geek.
