God damn. I have this friend who has been trying to ghetto up an incubator, he's using an old heathing pad with a towel on the bottom in a staples box, but it seems to be kinda crappy. On one side of the box the temp is about 75-78, on the other it is like 85-90, whats that about? Has anyone had good luck with a certain brand of heating pad or setup? That kid would prefer not to use an aquarium heater hookup, but if he has to he will. What do you guys use, can you help me out?

AFOAF uses a small spaceheater w/ thermostat shut-off in closet area under the stairs... keeps perfect 82f.

Life is work.

Ok, here's what you do with a heating pad! Put a 4 or 5 gallon glass jug filled with water ontop of it....My friends incubator is a dishwasher with a towel laid down the heating pad up high and the jug on top, with stuff piled around it, the entire chamber stays a good 81-83 degree's.

lay the heating pad on top of the lid. heat rises, and i couldnt turn the pad down low enough to keep it at 82F. i had trouble keeping it from getting to high when the pad was under the incubator. i placed it on top and now it stays at 82F, almost its lowest setting. my temp reading is taken from a probe hung in the center of the incubator.
