Great! By:
Great! Easy to use and settings are very simple.
Makes my life SO much easier. By:
I bought this for my ball python terrarium and boy is it helpful. I can't image my life without it. I love it so much and it is well worth the money. Haven't had any issues with it not working, power has gone out a couple times which doesn't affect it as it remembers the settings. I love how you can mount it just about anywhere. Would DEFINITELY buy again and recommend it.
Works well to keep consistant temp. By:
Works well to keep minimum temp in lizards cage. Easy to set. Digital readout is clear. Two outlets would be nice to have.
Perfect for the heating pad inside our snake’s tank By:
Works perfectly to keep our snake’s under tank heating pad at a safe and comfortable temperature. I placed it between the pad and tank underneath and used a normal thermometer on top of the substrate inside the tank to determine the temperature that radiates into the tank. I played around with the temperature settings of this thermostat controller to find the appropriate temperature setting. I currently have it set at 100°F which ends up being about 90°F just above the substrate inside. I highly recommend this to any reptile owner!
A must have for reptile owners By:
I use this to control my snakes UTH and it works great! It doesnt keep a "constant " temerature, what it does is you set the desired temp on the controller, in my case 94°F, and once it reaches that temp itll turn the heat pad off, once it goes down about 3°F itll trigger the heat pad to turn back on. So set the temperate on the higher end of the ideal range that is required for your reptile, so when it falls down a couple of degrees its still in the ideal range.
Great By:
So far so good. Super easy to use. It's pretty self explanatory to set up, but it does come with instructions if you're a little confused. Amazing quality for the prize.
Keep constant temp for hedgie. By:
My son's hedgehog likes it warm, around 82. There is a lamp over her cage but it has been difficult to maintain a constant temperature. We had to tweek the placement and tilt of the lamp constantly. This Century Thermostat Controller has solved the problem.We plugged the lamp into the controller, set the thermostat for 82 and it has been working great for several days. We weren't sure where to place the probe in her cage. We finally decided on taping it to the top (outside) of her big plastic igloo cave/bed. She can't reach the wire to chew on it and it seems to be accurate and works fine there. To test it, we put another thermometer in her cage to verify the probe works properly.It doesn't mention this in the instructions, but the thermostat actually seems to have a working range. When it reaches the preset temp of 82, it automatically shuts off the lamp. When the temperature shown on the controller goes down to 80, the controller automatically turns the heat lamp back on. Since the lamp itself takes awhile to heat up the actual temperature in her cage goes down to about 79. So hedgie's temperature ranges from about 79 to 82, which is fine and much more accurate than before. I don't know if the device is programmed to allow the 2 degree drop before turning back on, but that's how ours operates.It's a great device for our needs. Would recommend for other animals as well, like reptiles or anything using a heating pad.
Exactly what i wanted By:
I love it. I’ve had no issues with it so far. Keeps my snake in a perfect temperature range as i have it set
Inexpensive and will work for under 1000 watts By:
Keeps temps pretty accurate. Good price.
Best Quality !! Great Price!! By:
I bought 4 of these thermostats for my pets. I love them. The price is great (almost half of other brands) and they work exactly the same. They are all very accurate and allow for a wide range of temperature control. I use them with heating mats, IR lamps and even with a small greenhouse heater. I love the long wires for both the wall plug and the electrode which gives a better flexibility when you have limited wall outlet locations.

Hot By:
Love it
Not bright, works perfect By:
I use it for my tortoise and it works good I keep it between 80°F-90°F. I accidentally touched when hot and only burn a little but went away quick. I love it because it’s not bright just gives the right warmth, I hate light so it works perfect
As advertised. Good price By:
Satisfied. Works as expected
Great product. By:
Amazing. My tempture has stayed consistent through night and day. My thermometer came broken but I just needed the lamp.
Simply perfect By:
Works great, probably should have gotten a stronger wattage for my tanks but will do for now
Turtle By:
Works great for turtle
Does what I need it to By:
Excellent. Exactly what I was looking for. The thermometer is garbage. Battery powered. I have a thermostat I will be using with this lamp so it turns on and off at certain Temps. Would order again.
Works great. Gets a little hot and i mean really ... By:
Got this for our Bearded Dragon tank. Works great. Gets a little hot and i mean really hot on the front face that I would suggest being careful leaving it on unattended if not on a good surge protector. Provides a ton of heat at night for our dragon that we set it up to go on for an hr or so and turn off for a bit before turning back on. The temp gauge that comes with it also works great too.

does the job By:
does the job
Practical and easy By:
Easy to use, works great! I’m using it for my bearded dragon enclosure now that it is winter and it’s great.
Work great By:
Works great with my snake cage and don't have to worry about making sure the temperature is right. It does it all for me
Amazing. Lifesaver. Durable. Longlasting By:
Works great ive had this for over 4 year's and I have used it for many different reptiles. Currently its being used for my snake.
For my Leopard Geckos By:
This has been my favorite thermostat so far. It's cheap and does its job. You may have to have a laser thermometer to get your temperature right because it can be a few degrees off but once you get it there it maintains perfectly.
easy to use, cheap, and IMPORTANT By:
Love. This. Absolute life saver when it comes to reptiles. If you’re using under tank heating, you NEED this product or something similar to avoid overheating and burns. This one is the cheapest one I’ve found and is super easy to use.
Perfect By:
Works like a charm
Works well for reptiles By:
I use this for one of my snake enclosures. It works well! The only problem being that it’s not 100% accurate. +/- 8 degrees or so. But it keeps my snakes safe from overheating!

  • Easy-to-use adhesive mounting either underneath or on the side of the terrarium
  • Helps reptiles regulate body temperature needed for overall health

Best thing to have on Subscribe and save By:
I LOVE that these are on Subscribe and Save. WAY cheaper than the local pet store, and if two come per month, I can change the cage on our gecko every other week and never run out. I just subscribe and save and pitch them. They are washable, but at this price, it's hardly worth it!
WORKS FOR SQUIRREL BABIES TOO By:
We were adopted by two squirrel babies. They have to be kept warm while they're young. But we were worried about a heat lamp, so this solution did the trick. One baby didn't make it but it's sister did and she was warm and comfortable until she took off on her own.
Works Great By:
Once it drops below 70/75 it keeps the right temp under the glass. Otherwise I unplug it.
Why all the bad reviews? By:
First of all, my Zilla Heat Mat came in perfect condition.It had plenty of adhesive, and stuck to the bottom of my 10 gallon just fine.It came with little gel nubs to put under your tank for the mat to have airflow.It takes a little while to warm up, probably because it's new, and cold outside.Stays consistent, though the middle of course seems to produce the most heat that I have it set to (92.5 for BP's.)I don't get the bad reviews, perhaps it's just packing errors.
Dependable By:
I use this for my hermit crabs tanks, works great! No problems.
Five Stars By:
Works great, sticks well. However, there is no temperature control.
Five Stars By:
great for my little leo. yay for belly warmth!
Good when used with a thermostat. By:
This heat mat works well when used with a thermostat. I do not recommend it without a thermostat as you could overheat or burn the reptiles belly.
