Analog 2-in-1 Mini Temperature and Humidity Meter - Green

$9.99 NZD

My first thought was probably the same as yours right now. For under 10 bucks, does this thing actually work?

And yes, they are cheap, but this mini temperature and humidity gauge does actually work. Or thermometer and hygrometer to be exact. I had low expectations at this price but pretty happy to be proven wrong. Plus considering it doesn't need batteries, I'm pretty chuffed. The photos makes them look a bit more fancy pants than they are in real life though. 

I mean, I wouldn't be relying on this to make life or death plant decisions, not at all, but if you want something you can put in a grow house or plant tank, or pop in amongst your plants, without the risk of mixing batteries and water, this analog, mechanical meter is your guy. 


2 in 1 Thermometer and Hygrometer

You'll see there are two dials. The larger dial tells you the temperature, from minus 30 up to 50 degrees celsius. The smaller dial keeps track of humidity, from 10% to 100% humidity all with no battery required

I've been running a few tests around the house, and it's accurate to about 1 to 2 degrees (when there are temperature and humidity fluctuations analog meters display the average). It takes a few minutes to react to a change in temperature or humidity when you move it to a new spot. 

Certainly not as accurate or fast to react to small changes as a digital thermometer though, sure, but no batteries to replace? Nothing to have to plug in? I'm happy. You can also calibrate the gauge if needed using the screw on the back.  

Mini size - 5.5cms

At just 5.5cms wide and 1.5cm thick, this chap's small enough to be placed anywhere, and light enough to hang off a pin or picture hook. There's a little cut-out in the back that makes it easy to hang (check out the photos). The other cut-out you see in the photo of the back gives you access to the screw for calibration.

I just sit mine in amongst my plants facing up so it's easy to read at a glance. I move it to my different plant shelves to keep an eye on general conditions. In winter it's handy to check heating is reaching to and keeping the areas my plant shelves are in above 15 degrees, and to know when to run my H2O Humidifer to keep that humidity up.
