    I'm sorry, I don't count chicken hatch rate, but indotica (I hope that's right in English ) hatch rate is 75%

    @Dmitrys Glad you chose to join BYC and share this with us. You've probably already changed the heater coils in my future incubators. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Note one thing please. This heater takes more oxygen then carbon fiber heater cable. My next inc has this heater:

    Probably a lot more wattage than you will need, the one I got was over 1400 watts but you can test it.

    You are right. My heater has 2000 watts (1000 +1000). I use 2000 for starting incubation, and 1000 (one of them) for keeping incubation

    I was wondering about the wattage. Most 120vac heaters are 750/1500 watts. I need 250 to 300. I did find some 12vdc heaters that run 300watts but right now I'm trying to figure out how the amperage would work out. Since 300watts is 25 amps. I need to find out if that would be between the power supply and the element or if the power supply would be trying to pull 25 amps from its source

    Never mind just got ahold of an electrician buddy of mine and he said the math is the same from the power supply to the element it would be 25 amps. From the outlet it would be whatever the power supply was pulling in watts/120 just like normal. So it would be basically 2.5 amps from the source.

    The 25 amps would be drawing off the battery bank or a power supply. If power supply then the power supply would be drawing just a few amps(according to the power supply---switching or not) off 120 volts.
