Saftey of Heating Pads...
    #931760 - 10/04/02 01:50 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I was wondering how safe it is to leave a heating pad on constantly in an incubation chamber... Also if anyone knows whats a good setting if there are four settings! THX and Peace

Ive heard that these arent the safest of all heating methods.

You really should be careful with it, or just buy a cheap fish-tank heater for $10.99 and set that in a water jug.

Remember the Christmas special with the kid that wanted the Red Rider BB gun?

Everyone told him he would end up shooting his eye out.

He almost did.


Don't use a heating pad!

You'll end up burning your house down!!!

Heating pads were not designed to be left on 24/7.

If you want something simular.....get a reptile pad from a pet store.
These are made to be on 24/7.

I use submersible aquarium heaters.....myself.

good luck!

"COBRA MAT" , they are good because they are also designed to only increase ambient temp in tank by 8-15*F . So if room temp is 65*F the inside of tank will only climb to about 80*F . Watch for hot spots though .  :cool: 

Heating pad not safe , I used one that had a timer on it , only needed it for short periods , and it began to darken cord , sign of melting wires . :frown:
Good Luck
