not all heaters are made equal. What size was yours(watts) and what manafacturer I hear about them breaking all the time. As far a keeping them warm just put them in the warmest spot in your house they should finish alright as long as they are in the upper 70's low 80's

yeah 50 watts is small especially when trying to maintain the higher temperatures needed for incubation. I'm not sure what brand heaters wal-mart stalks but I'm sure they are not the highest quality I personally like:

and I would try to go for a least 100 watts that way the heater has less strain on it to maintain a higher temp

I prefer Tronic 100 watts...I have quite a few...a few too many...have have a temp adjuster that gives you an idea of what your gonna get instead of low medium hot
