need ideas for low maintenance heat source
    #2343713 - 02/17/04 12:22 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

here's a challenge for you guys...

i need a heat source for a few incubating chambers that is relatively low maintenance, but here's the catch

it must be self sustaining--it cannot have an exterior plug. batteries are okay (but improbable i figure). something along the lines of rechargable, maybe? uranium stays hot, right? no no that won't work.

Why no plug? Going super stealth?

you could use those hot packs, but you would need to change them pretty often, and that might get expensive fast.

Also, what are your size constraints? You could get a bigass car battery and wire an inverter to that if you need AC current.

Or buy a computer UPS and run whatever you need off of that.

Well, in the colder months (if you have any) when the heat runs, a simple plastic box with a few dark towels wrapped around makes a really nice incubator if you keep it a yard or so away from the direct heat source.

That is a terrible idea in my opinion. Growing in the dorms is just asking for trouble. I am in college, just wait till you get your own house.
