I have seen both, I bought a thinkgeek one a few years ago. They are the same thing, only "rebranded" and called an incubator. Made in China to keep "whatever" either warm or cold. The one I have does not keep consistent temps.

It has been a while, but it seems like it varied 5-6 degrees, like 87-92 when set at 89. I put a digital thermometer inside with a memory, and it showed a large variation. It works great for keeping about 6 cans of pop cold. I think they were designed with this in mind, a beer cooler, or it will keep your coffee warm. There is a thread on fauna somewhere if you do a search it should come up. Good luck.
