    Default Digital power strip thermostat

    I am looking for a power strip...or I guess it's called a thermostat, not 100% sure. I currently use a rheostat to control my two geckos UTH's, but I will be getting a new addition to my collection soon and figured it would be best for me to go ahead and invest in a digital controller that I can set the temperature at and not have to worry about adjusting temps throughout the day as much. I wanted to know what you guys recommend. And I would like one that allows for 4 UTH's to be plugged in at once. I don't want to spend a fortune on this, but I want something that will work that is at a decent price.

    OK, thanks! But are there any out there that are a little bit cheaper? I wasn't wanting to spend that much, though in the long run it'd probably be better, but if I can find a cheaper one that will last me a while I'd rather that right now.

    when it comes to pluggin in more than 500 watts of electricity into a

    thermostat, you would at least like to have one that can handle your

    4 uth's.

    You can get a zoo med rhetro stat from petstores there like 25-40 bucks. They have two plugs and if you use a temp probe you can do it manually. Thats what I do with heat cable.

    Ive been looking around myself for a while and that the best Ive been able to come up with since I dont have that many leos.

    Thats what I"m using right now for my two leos. I just wanted to try investing in a thermostat, but I think I'm just going to get another rheostat like that, for my new gecko.
