    I found some Thermocubes on line for around $15--is this the price that you have paid for these? Also there were some reviews that said they heated up and malfunctioned unless used with a low drawing device. Has anyone experienced this? Thanks--Terrio

    I think I paid about $12 for mine.
    I've only used them with 100 watt bulbs so far, and they are working fine

    Edited to add:

    $11.99 here:

    Be sure you get the one designed to turn on at 35F and off at 45F as I believe they make several with different values.

    Hi, I bought two before winter, I love mine. We have a heated water base for our girls, but I needed a thermocube for our roos, which are housed seperate. My DH made a couple of tin water heaters and we have them pluged into the cube. Our cube turns on at 35F and off at 45F. We have had some really freezing temps here and the cube does a great job of keeping their waterers from freezing.

    Each one has two recepticals and I ordered them on Jefferslivestock.com for 10.95, when I was ordering other pet supplies.
