Default Lucky Reptile Incubator

Anyone any experience of using the above incubators? I have used it twice now for my ackie eggs and both times the eggs have failed. I have previously use a hovabator with no problems.

I've used the Herp Nursery II which I think is very similar.
Worked perfectly but the digital temperature display was always wrong. The thermostat on it worked very accurately but you need a decent digital thermometer to actually set it up rather than using the display.

Default Incubator

Hi I've used this for 4 years very successfully but with gargoyle geckos. What I would say is the temp display does seem to fluctuate quite a bit. I tend to find that mine is not quite so warm as it suggests & I tend to run a degree or 2 above as what's shown on the display. However that just might be my model.
Good luck

Currently using thus for my Hognose egg and so far so good? The temps are well off and need to be dialled in with a separate thermometer but it does what it says on the tin

Thanks everyone. It would seem I am the only one that has had problems. When I took readings with an infra red thermometer throughout the incubator the temps varied widely. The hottest part which was the top and near to the back read 95f now if that temp had been within the container at any point then that would have killed the eggs. They had only been in there a few days when they started dying. I never had any problems with the hovabator, usually only losing one or two eggs.
