how accurate are the exo terra hygrometers??



just placed one in my room for giggles and it says humidity in my room is 75%???? seems a tad high doesnt it? does this mean i can keep reptiles in my room without tanks that require highish humidity? :lol:

There crap! So are there thermometers!

If I were you I'd invest in some digital ones.. Goto ebay and look there. I get mine from monitors_direct (i'm in work and ebays blocked i'll link it later). They have an outdoor/indoor readrer with humidity for £12 I think... I've got 4 at the moment, one broke so need to order some more!

ive got some digital thermometers coming, just use the dial ones to give me an idea of temp gradient in the viv instead of running wires everywhere, will get a digi hygro to see what humidity is then

I'm a data freak! I've got thermometers positioned all over my house and I record them each day as well! :oops: One in every viv' basic ones in each room and one hanging out of the window for the outside temp! Was a very warm night last night :?

Yep, total crap. I got two to try them out and they read more than 20% different - and that's in a totally sealed box!

Definitely get an electronic one - I think most have +/- tolerance of about 5% (unless you spend serious money), so not exactly precise but good enough.
