Vivarium Electronics VE-100 Thermostat for Snake habitats Bundle with Carolina Custom Cages’ Chlorhexidine Solution 2%; 1 Refill Makes 32 oz. of Working Solution



Quick overview:

  • The Vivarium Electronics VE-100 Thermostat is our recommendation for an economical, yet effective and reliable control of heating your snake’s habitat. The VE-100 can handle up to 700 watts and operates as an on/off style thermostat. When the set temperature is exceeded and detected by the probe, the unit turns “off”. Once the temperature drops a selected amount, the unit will turn your heating device back “on”.
  • While this unit is safe, effective and reliable, we also offer and recommend the VE-300 which can also handle up to 700 watts and is able to operate as an on/off style thermostat OR as a proportional style thermostat; plus a few extra features. Both of these thermostats work great with our Reptile Basics Radiant Heat Panels for snake habitats.
  • We have also included a bottle of our Chlorhexidine Solution 2%; 1 refill makes 32 oz. of working solution – just add water!
  • This is the best cleaner for your reptile’s habitat; used and recommended by exotic animal vets for cleaning your cages and other habitat items. We love this anti-bacterial, anti-fungal cleaner because it is easy to use and non-toxic to our reptiles. Great for daily maintenance cleaning as well as monthly cleaning from top to bottom.

The Vivarium Electronics VE-100 Thermostat is a “table top” model designed to sit nicely on top of your racks or cages. A 3-button keyboard makes it ultra-easy to navigate through the menu and the large back-lit display makes programming easy and intuitive. WHAT IS A ON/OFF STYLE THERMOSTAT? Basic on/off thermostats will simply turn off the device when the set temperature is exceeded, then turn it back on when the temperature has dropped below the set temperature. This means they have a 1 to 2 degree “slop” (or more in cheaper ones). Therefore, if you set your thermostat at 80 degrees, your actual temps can vary between as low as 76-78 degrees and as high as 82-84 degrees. WHAT IS A PROPORTIONAL STYLE THERMOSTAT? Similar to an on/off style thermostat, a proportional thermostat has a probe that tells it when heat needs to be turned “on” or turned “off”. Unlike an on/off style thermostat, a proportional thermostat also works like a dimmer in that it can adjust the amount of voltage being applied to the heating device.
