Here's a link to the specific ones I used. They work on 120V or 240V, available in green, yellow (which is more like orange), and red for $1.55.

There are a TON of other options on there, though. That place has everything, but it can be hard to find.

Got mine built today.

I don't have anything particularly innovative in mine - nothing someone else hasn't already done (unless you count color-coding the outlets). I won't show the inside, it's a rat's nest because I was impatient to get it done, but it's all properly connected and wired.

I had to go with a green indicator light for the cooling side because Radio Shack didn't have blue, but beyond that it's all good.

I like your hot/cold color coding. I'll probably do something similar when I get my parts in the mail.

could also use a label maker and put some labels above each outlet.

So I read all 101 pages last night and had a couple questions.

1) The listing shows the conntroller rated at 10amp's but I thought some people were getting these rated for higher amps towards the begining. Are you all getting ones listing 10amps on them?

2) Has anyone had any success at making the probe wire a plug in setup with a panel mount type setup?

Thanks
Mark

so did we find a solution to the seller only listing 220v controllers as opposed to use usa users that need 110v? id like to get going on making one of these but if its only 220v then i cant use it.
