  • Great for aquarium

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Sturdy plastic construction, this device is molded with clips in the back so that it could be panel mounted through a rectangular cutout. The temperature reading is very responsive and accurate, the display is big and easy to read.

    Cons:

    As stated elsewhere in a discussion thread this device does have a LR44 battery inside for voltage stabilization. Not sure how well it will work without it. The probe is not weighted and isn't very heavy.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bought this to use for my freshwater aquarium as maintaining a consistent temperature is very important, though since the probe tends to float, you would have to loop the wire through a heavy metal nut or washer to keep it underwater. I plan to run the wire beneath gravel and have the probe hide inside a hollow decoration so it's less obvious.

    Bottomline:

    For the price (compared to how much you'd pay elsewhere) this is a great little thermometer and its shortcomings are easily resolved.
