Hygrometer Recommendation

Post by CrabbyLover77 » Mon Feb 24, 2020 2:19 pm

Can anyone recommend a fairly accurate hygrometer? I currently have an analog thermometer/hygrometer, and I know the digital ones are supposed to be better I'll be sure to calibrate it too. Thanks!!

This is what I use: https://www.amazon.com/ThermoPro-TP-60S ... B06XKH666P

It's actually technically a house thermometer/hydrometer, but it works perfectly in their habitat. I like it because it can handle the high humidity, and if you buy extra transmitters you can place them in different areas of the tank and monitor from the main device.

Pretty decent price (not even $20) for the accuracy and reliability I've experienced with it. Been using it for months now with no issues.

Thank you! I'll put this one on my list. Image
