    You can see mine in this picture. The bluish one has a thermometer and a hygrometer and then there is a regular thermometer on the right.

    Home Depot. I calibrated it and it was off 5% for humidity. For temperature, it usually reads a degree or two lower than the regular one.

    I had to look hard to find them even after I asked where they should be. They were all up on a dusty shelf but they did have several different ones. They were in the same general area as the pool stuff here I think. Here is a link about how to calibrate a hygrometer: http://exoticpets.about.com/od/herpresources/ss/hygrometer.htm

    Yes. I imagine they are all off at least a little. Mine is digital and read 5 under when I calibrated it.
