Great budget thermostat
March 15, 2019
I'm using 4 of these with radiant heat panels for my snakes. They let the temperature drop 1°C, then bring it up to the set temperature, so temperatures are pretty constant. I was worried that an on/off thermostat like this might put the heat panels on full blast to bring the temperatures up, but since it only allows 1 degree of fluctuation the panels only ever get up to about half of their max temperature. This gives me great peace of mind for the safety of my animals.
They also remember their last settings after a power outage, so there's no worry about resetting them.
My only complaint with these is how the wiring is set up. No matter what, it's always going to look horribly messy, especially with multiple thermostats going. I would also prefer removable cables so that they could be replaced if they wear out or are damaged in some way, but for the price it's not too bad.
Oh, and the suction cup is completely useless. I didn't need it anyway, but anyone hoping to use it should know that it does not adhere to anything.
