Q: What is the difference between a rheostat and a thermostat?
A: A rheostat is basically a dimmer. It allows you to manually reduce the amount of power reaching a heater. A thermostat like the 500R senses the temperature and turns the heater on and off accordingly.
Q: Can I use the rheostat/thermostat with a Reptisun, Avian Sun or Power Sun UV?
A: These lamps need specific line voltages; they cannot be used with dimmers/rheostats.
Q: How many heating devices can be controled with this device?
A: You can plug up to two heating devices into this temperature controller. Make sure the maximum wattage capability is not exceeded.
Q: I am using a thermostat/rheostat and the temperature is not rising.
A: Thermostats and rheostats cannot increase the temperature a heat source is capable of putting out. Setting the thermostat/rheostat to the maximum temperature/ level will be as hot as the heat source itself will get.

I wanted a bit of temp control for my roach colony. Since they are in a storage room that doesn't have a large temperature variation, the manual control works well.
Please remember to use a Rheostat when using a mat or pig blanket to make certain that you do not harm your reptile....This one works well for my tortoise.....
Purchased this when we bought a new UTH for our ball python enclosure. The heater gets much hotter than expected, especially since it is attached directly to the glass. This rheostat works like a charm. We just plugged it into the power strip and then plugged our UTH into it. Then you can dial it up or down for more or less heat. I can't imagine using the UTH without one. A good investment.
I use 2 of these with my leo gecko and our ball python's UTH and it's a breeze to keep the temps even or adjust when needed.
I bought this for my bearded dragons basking light so i could lower it when it gets to hot works well looks great best price anywhere another perfect zoo med product from pet mountain.
I use this for my bearded dragons temperature. when it gets to hot i can just lower the heat so that my beardies don't get too hot. Overall great item to keep a constant heat.
Very efficient for controlling the heat in a terrarium. I use this for my beardies. If the temp gets to high I can easily adjust it and lower how much heat is emitted. Very easy to use and affordable, I have 2 of them.
