I have a glass snake terrarium with an under tank heater stuck on the bottom, on the outside of the glass between the glass and shelf. Under aspen bedding the glass was getting far too hot, like 140 degrees Fahrenheit so I had to do something to regulate it. I put this device's probe inside the tank, on top of the glass bottom but nestled in the aspen bedding, and set it to 105 degrees. It did the trick. Because UTHs take a long time to heat up and cool down the process is pretty slow in both directions, but the probe temp is hovering right around 105 and it has solved my worry that my snake will wiggle down to bare glass and burn herself. With the probe at 105, the tank stays at about 86-89 (I also have a bulb running at day and a ceramic heater at night so keep that in mind, those both help a lot and I don't think a UTH at 105 would be enough for a 40g breeder)
Be warned, the thermostat tops out at 108, even initiating an emergency shutdown at that temp. It's probably perfect for seed beds but I would have liked my UTH to be more like 112, which would still prevent any serious burn injury (if any) while allowing more heat to get through the aspen.
The refund process was all right. Instead of being able to ship it back at an Amazon locker, I had to take it to a UPS shop with a free return label provided for me. I'm getting refunded from the vendor so no complaints there.
After returning it, I decided to opt for a replacement in the form of the Herpstat Intro+ (about four times more expensive than the Jump Start), and it has been working great at regulating the temperature on my heat mat. It is unfortunate that the Jump Start did not work, but perhaps it was just a defective unit.
