    ive searched ebay for one of those hygrometers with the long probe as the standard ones (without probe thi,g) wont fit in my bator, but can only find ones from china/hong kong and have had trouble with products from there so wish to avoid them...

    any ideas? (please dont say walmart as we dont have them over here so preferably somewhere online and somewhere that doesnt charge a fortune?)

    I have yet to see any of these that read humidity with the probe. The main unit has to be in there to read humidity.

    I have not searched myself, but I wrote this down.... I read it somewhere...

    More accurate hygrometer brands are: Kestrel, BK, or Fluke.

    I just finished using a temp/hygrometer with the probe thing. Yes the whole unit has to be in the bator to read the humidity, the probe only reads the temp...the unit reads the humidity. I got mine from Lowes and it was pretty accurate...it was called Acurite

    See it there..the whole unit goes on...

    managed to track one down on ebay uk, (none probe but small enough to fit in) its for terrariums and incubators apparantly so fingers crossed its a bit reliable!
