Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SkyGuy Thermocube Works Well
Great Product! I have used this to bring on auxiliary emergency heat for my chicken coop for three years. I use a 100 w and a 150 w reptile bulb normally but when the temp near the floor drops to 35 degrees F the thermocube brings on another 250 w reptile bulb. I use a remote temp transmitter so the temp can be read from the house for safety checks and two dial thermometers in the coop so I can read both the floor temp and the elevated nesting and resting area temp. The thermocube dependably brings the auxiliary heat on at 35 degrees F and off at 45 degrees F keeping the coop between 50 and 60 degrees F, even at -10 to -20 outside. (the coop inside dimension is 7' x 7' x nearly 6' high and is well insulated.)

the plug starts and stops the heating source within a small temp range. in my basement i have it set up with a 1300w small heater near some water pipes. if the temp dives this will kick in and turn my heater on and keep it on until it rises to the preset limit and it cuts off. rinse, lather,repeat. product could be used many ways. just have to see a need

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by frozen Just not sure
Purchased this no-freeze plug to use in my well house so that I don't have frozen pipes. So far it has not come on that I've been able to tell and the temperature outside has been in the 30's overnight. Supposedly this plug should supply electricity at a temperature well above 32F degrees and it just doesn't seem to be happening.

I use the Thermocube for freeze protection in the plumbing bay of my RV. I have a small 1500 W heater connected to it. I can prevent freezing without running a heater constantly. On at 35 deg. and off at 45 deg. is perfect!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ASGM Does what I needed
I use this to turn on the heat lamp in my chicken coop to help keep the water from freezing. It turns on and off just fine, but I really don't know at which temperatures. I don't know about its longevity especially since it was so difficult to get plugged in.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eamo It seems to work, but reliability is as yet unknown.
The stated turn on temperature is "approximately" 35 f. "Approximately" is correct. So far, the unit kicks on but the air temperature is closer to 33/34 f. before it does so. There is very little room for error that close to freezing.
My recommendation is a guarded one.

We had an expensive greenhouse heater with a thermostat jammed in the on position. I couldn't find a replacement part, so we opted for the freeze buster. It's actually a better alternative because its lowest setting on the heater was 65degrees. Through the last few weeks with nighttime temps hovering in the single digits, our remote thermometer reads 45 degrees plus or minus 5. Good product.

A great way to control freeze protection heaters without guesswork. This was purchased as a replacement for an older model that was still working fine, just very old (and nothing lasts forever, especially in a damp well house).
