    Hey folks. I want to buy ANOTHER hygrometer/thermometer with probe for my incubator.

    Please chime in and let me know the brand and name of the most accurate one you have found?

    The quality of the thermometer is more important than the hygrometer, as it needs to be far more accurate. My favourite thermometer is a Brinsea spot check, it very accurate and easy to use. You can use any kind of the basic hygrometer, but the comboones often have a thermometer that has a +/- range of two degrees each way, meaning that your temperatures can be off over a four degree range.
