Is a Brinsea 10 more likely to have stable temp than LG 9200?

    I bought an LG, and ran it for several days until I thought the temp was stable, then put in 10 eggs.
    Weather has been both hotter and colder since then, with temp found @ 104 *yikes* and 97. [​IMG] The max stored reading was 123, which I sincerely hope was before I placed these eggs. I forgot to clear it on set day.
    We do not have central air, so house temp varies. I have some sheets of Styrofoam I can put around it, if that will help.
    Humidity has not been a problem; 55-65%; I put plastic Easter eggs in to hold more water. (what happens if it's high in the beginning?)
    There is a Brinsea 10 available; if it will hold temps better I may try it. 10 egg limit would be good for me.
    I appreciate all ideas! [​IMG]

    I have a brinsea mini adv and love, love, love it. The temperature is holding steady for me and it's keeping everything right on track.

    Second on the Brinsea Mini Advance. Holding rock steady temp and seems almost idiot proof which in my case is good. First time hatcher set eggs yesterday so I am keeping fingers and toes crossed.

    Oh my goodness, we are incubating soul mates. I just set my first batch of runner ducks in my brinsea yesterday. What did you set?

    I set 10 Cream Brabanter eggs on Wednesday, in an LG, but they spiked to 104 on Thursday, so I may need to start over.
    I will post results here [​IMG] https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=246395
    zomg
    the Brinsea 10 (a discontinued item) on ebay went for $149. You can get a 20 for only a little bit more than that. Still I would love to have had it.
    The Rcom is calling me, lol.
