iSTAT Compact Advanced 5 in 1 Reptile Thermostat
This is one of the most versatile and easy to use reptile thermostats available today. This small digital thermostat can function in on/off mode, pulse mode, dimming mode, cooling mode, and humidity mode. Now you can purchase a single thermostat and use it with any heating element you choose or you can use it to cool a terrarium (when hooked up to a cooling unit or fan) and you can even control mist or humidity devices. You can also add a little personality to your set up by choosing a color that suites your taste. We used our test unit in a variety of different scenarios and it performed brilliantly, but don't take our word for it, the iSTAT thermostat for snakes is backed by a 5 year manufacturer warranty.

- Multiple modes so you can control under tank heaters, heat tape, incandescent basking lights and more!
