    Just wondering if anyone would recommend the microclimate EVO lite thermostat? I like the idea of it doing both dimming and pulse if needed.
    I intend to run it with a click clack set up to begin with for a few months and them on a larger enclosure eventually. Sounds like a versatile thermostat with some nice little features.

    Opinions welcome

    Derek

    I’ve Heard good things about it’s functionality and it’s features

    However as with all digital stats, there’s a lifetime to the screen before it doesn’t have a backlight and you will need to shine a light on it to see numbers

    I believe you can turn the back off on this model so there is no light and to boost screen life.

    I ended finding one for $245 posted so i grabbed it. Should be a great thermostat so fingers crossed it does everything it claims.

    If in the market for thermostats go with Habistats,they are far superior than Microclimates

    You can buy from the UK and just get the plugs swapped over.

    Microclimate might not be as good but it was the second best and fastest option at the moment.
