    Hi. My P&I incubator doesn't have a humidity gage. I want to buy an accurate one that I can trust, preferably with a slim sensor that will fit through a 1cm diameter air hole in the top of my incubator. Can anyone reccommend a good brand?

    Thanks

    Brinsea Spot Check... has both hygrometer and thermometer... has a probe so it can be put thru vent holes... hope this helps and good luck!

    Get something expensive like the Brinsea or perform a salt test on an inexpensive unit with probe from your local box store. Salt tests are simple and provide a 75% RH environment to note difference of your unit. Using that correction will always give you an accurate reading.
