    You buy a generator just to make sure that even if the power goes out you can still keep your incubator runnin???

    Well, I just bought a generator today for that sole purpose, to make sure my babies can keep growin even if![​IMG]


    p.s. - I have my second hatch of the year coming out today and thankfully haven't needed a generator, shooo......

    most of the incubators i have seen are between 40 and 120 watts you can get an inverter and run that bator off a 12 volt battery for at least 5 hours

    We got a really good deal on a small 500W honda generator that is extremely quite, probably cheaper than I could have gotten an inverter for. I have no problems with running a small cord from the garage where the generator would be set to the laundry room for the incubator. Though an inverter and battery may be a nice back up to the generator too![​IMG]
