this incubator was the perfect choice for the application that I needed it for. The temperature was easy to adjust up or down and the compact size was just right for my work space. I would however liked to have the option of setting the temperature in either centigrade or farenheit.

These use bi-way heat pump modules, so they need a constant room temperature around "room temperature". They become less effective in high heat or fluctuating temperatures. These work if their outside temperature is constant. Glad for the purchase and price.

It's well insulated and from what I could track, kept within a degree of the set temperature. For a small unit it works well but for the price I would expect something slightly bigger. Edit: months after not using it the temperature keeps spiking randomly and maxes out at 65. It's completely roasted of my plates and I can no longer rely on this unit.

I tested it. For about a month with temperature setting set to 22 degree Centigrade. I placed accurate thermometers on each shelf. Both accurate wireless thermometers with memory and mercury thermometers. I use this incubator for making kefir. I am using small jars on both shelfs. Difference in one or two degree of Fahrenheit is sufficient for this process. Temperature spread on bottom shelf was between 71 to 72.4 degree Fahrenheit. Mostly influenced by room temperature. Temperature outside of this incubator was between 65 to 88 degree Fahrenheit. Temperature spread on top shelf was between 73 to 73.6 degree Fahrenheit. Slightly more than one degree of Fahrenheit spread during a month is very good and dependable result. And yes there is difference between top and bottom shelf. But not dramatic difference. Pretty good product.

We bought two: one for below-ambient temps, the other for the 30°C range. Both work fine.

My wife takes Tymlos injections that require a temperature of 69F - 77F. We live in Florida where the house gets into the mid 80s when we are out and about. All the units i found were for diabetics and did not have a thermostat range as high as 69F. This was a great find. Not only for the Tymlos, but for other expensive, long lasting medications that require "room temperature" of 77F and below. Very well made, light and keeps the temperature within 1 degree of the setting. Has a 12volt adapter and is insulated. Would fit in a suitcase. Very pleased

The incubator holds a consistent temperature, but it is always several degrees lower than the displayed temperature. In order to have the incubator at 37 C, I must set the display to 42 C.

For small places, the incubation of plates is secure, nice design and portable. It adjust quick the temperature. I do not have always connected the incubator, just when I need it, but quick adjust the temperature and hold it along the experiment.
