Yup. Have one in the bottom of a large Rubbermaid container, and a wireless Radioshack hygro/thermometer inside.

Currently 83.7F and 54% relative humidity inside the sucker ;-)

The Raccoon has never done a cake, so he wouldnt know. But, has used a heating pad in several differing containers (CC box, filing cab, foot locker, etc) for colonizing spawn jars.

Not all heating pads are alike. Some -- even on low -- get to hot. Bottom of jars dry out & don't colonize -- well.

To resolve that, he placed a stainless steel oven type rack between the pad & the jars set on the rack, to distance them from the pad, just a little. Some containers still got to hot, even w/pad on low.

To resolve that; he put a timer on the pad. 24 hours divided in equal times OFF & ON worked well.

Just tinker w/it. you will get it tuned in.

Given that human heating pads are made to have temps (much) higher than normal body temp (98.6), your pad is the exception to the rule. SixTango
