    I use a digital Flukers hygro/thermo from the pet store. They are a bit pricey ($25) and I had to return my first one, that jumped all over the place, up and down. This one seems on the mark. I also have a Taylor with inside/outside temp-probe. Works pretty well. You are right that the AcuRites get water inside and tend to go weird after a few uses in that high humidity sealed setting.

    I use the grey accurite as well. the inside temp does read differently at first, but after a while it should catch up. I think the thermometer is inside of the panel or something. Also depends if that outside sensor is in the same spot as it, or if its closer or further from the heat source.​

    I use the regular accurite (no probe) and the springfield. Both read about the same temp and humidity wise.
