The Lucky Reptile Incubator Lucky Reptile Herp Nursery 2 Reptile Egg Incubator is one of the very best off the shelf reptile incubators we have come across. With a built in thermostat and digital display it is easy to monitor your reptile eggs with the Lucky Reptile Incubator.Ê
The Lucky Reptile Incubator is also capable of heating and cooling which adds safety in the summer months as well as allowing it to double as a safe tool to hibernate tortoises and other reptiles
The successor of the popular Herp Nursery incubator also uses the peltier technology which enables the device to cool and to heat its interior. This allows its use as incubator for reptile eggs but also for hibernating reptiles.
The temperature area is approximately 5 to 60C but is dependant from the surrounding temperature. The digital thermostat allows setting the temperature in 1C steps.
Please note that the displayed temperature can vary a little from the actual temperature inside the device. We recommend checking with a separate thermometer.
The Herp Nursery II does not only have a larger usable space (25L instead of 14L) than its predecessor, it also has a transparent door and interior lighting. The greatest innovation is that the device now can switch automatically between cooling and heating mode. This means that it will also cool to keep the desired temperature which can be very useful in summer when the higher outdoor temperature will also cause the temperatures inside incubators to rise. The Herp Nursery II prevents the loss of eggs from overheating as it will automatically cool to keep the set temperature. Please note that due to the used technology the device has a certain temperature deviation. It is not a professional incubator which will keep the set temperature by the 0,1C but an entry model for less delicate eggs.
Interior Dimensions: ca. 27x22x37 cm (WxDxH).
Outer Dimensions: ca. 33x30x45 cm
WATTAGE INFORMATION When on DC power (car) to heat uses 40w, cooling 50w (MAX Wattage)When on AC Power Heating uses 55w cooling 65w (MAX)
Incubator hiding required temperature fine, it is compact but that is what appealed to me. After order it arrived really quickly so everything is good!
I’ve not had this long and is is broke.
Nice item apart from the cigarette lighter lead missing
Some internal packaging already opend? However all appears like new.
Lucky Reptile Herp Nursery II - Incubator, HN-2UK
We are first time users as Tortoise laid 3 eggs. The incubator is ideal. Clean readings and very sturdy. We have no concerns for the eggs
Very happy with this incubater, does exactly as advertised, good quality , very reasonable price , would definitely purchase a second unit
This Mark II of the Herp Nursery Incubator is basically the size of a small drinks fridge. It's light and has two power inputs - AC or DC, including UK plug and a cigarette lighter adaptor, for those 'on the road' egg pick-ups from things like breeders or conventions - not that I'll probably ever use it this way. A couple of shelves, an interior light and a viewing window with a good thermostatic control. It does heat up fast, but I find it actually controls in 2c increments and not 1c. If I hit 29c, it hits 28c and doesn't go up. If I hit up for 30c, it'll hit 30c. 31c? It'll stick at 30c. However, I have a wide incubation temperature range (28-30c) and this is fine for me. Using 4 separate thermohygrometers, I can confirm the nursery thermostat is accurate to within 0.4c +/-. There's no real temperature fluctuations overnight either. It's not perfect, but it's a good low-turnover hobby incubator.
Amazing price and arrived very fast! :)
