Looking for affordable thermostat

Anyone have any suggestions on a good, but affordable, thermostat? I need to get a new one, mine doesn't seem to be working properly any more... I don't want to spend a ton on a new one, and I'm getting a headache shuffling through all the pages on eBay and amazon. So, any suggestions?

Btw, it's to be used with Zoo Med Repti Heat Cable to heat betta jars.

I'm using this in my 3gal. I hid it under the gravel and ran the cable beside the filter -- it's nearly invisible. The temp cannot be adjusted manually. It keeps my water temp around 80F in a small 68F apartment. It once went a bit high to 84F, so I unplugged it for a few hours...ever since I did that, the heater seemed to stabilize between 76 - 80F. Would recommend. :)

Thermostat or heater? A thermostat is the component of a heater that allows it to regulate/control temperature, however doesn't actually emit heat itself. Considering the vast array of heaters on the market for low prices, it would probably be cheaper and easier to replace the whole heater rather than change the thermostat.

Unless you are after a thermometer, in which case a suction cap thermo should only cost a couple of bucks.
