The Brinsea TLC 30 Advance Brooder is compact, portable and stackable with full digital temperature control. It provides a safe warm environment in which to care for injured small animals, birds, or newborn pets. 

The TLC-30 is available in two models, Eco and Advance - these multi-purpose units are equally suitable for bird brooding and for small animal intensive care and recovery.

The TLC-30 Advance has digital controls, it shows temperature on a digital display in either °C or °F and includes dual adjustable alarms to warn of variations of temperature inside and outside the cabinet beyond user-set thresholds. You can simply alter the temperature in 0.1°C increments by using the digital controls to adjust between room temperature and 38°C. The digital controller guards against accidental temperature adjustment.

Designed with simplicity and functionality in mind, the TLC 30 is exceptionally easy to use and offers excellent value for money.

Questions & Answers

Whatís the difference between a TLC 30 Eco and TLC 30 Advance?

A TLC 30 Eco does not have a digital display, it simply has a liquid in glass thermometer to display the temperature. The temperature can be adjusted via a dial. The TLC 30 Advance features a digital temperature display and the temperature is adjusted using buttons on the display. Neither the TLC 30 Eco or Advance have a humidity display or any humidity control.

Customer Reviews

Very impressed with this brooder and brilliant service from the incubator shop.
Hannah Tombs
Very fast delivery. Easy to use and a very useful incubator for tiny hedgehogs.
Little Wiggly Snouts Hedgehog Rescue
Iíve previously bought two TLC-50 eco incubators from the incubator shop and theyíve been in use almost continuously ever since. Adding the TLC-30 advance gives me flexibility in a very compact size. Digital control so I can be sure of the temperature not fluctuating if the room temp gets cooler, and I can take it with me in the car if need be too. I wouldnít use it for any adult hedgehog but for a juvenile in a pinch or a litter of babies itíll be perfect. Fast delivery via good courier, definitely be coming back for any other purchases again.

Next day delivery. Excellent service. Have bought other incubators from here and all great.
Chrissie Owls & Stonesfield Owl & Bird of Prey Rescue
i recently purchased two of these brooders from you, i am very impressed with them and also your brilliant service. Thank you
Great little brooder and great service. Highly recommended
Peter Ardron
I've had several Brinsea products over the years and have always been delighted with them. The TLC30 is no exception.If I wanted to quibble then I'd say the airflow is slightly too strong for newly hatched parrot babies but it's easy to put an air diffuser over them and this strength of flow is needed when they're older. Oh - some form of humidity control would be good too. But if these improvements were made then I guess the brooder would be too expensive and I wouldn't have bought it on cost grounds!
Susan Woods
Very easy to set up and would highly recommend
Peter Osgood
Excellent delivery service brinsea items never disappointed
Purchased for a wildlife rescue and they have found this very useful for the smaller animals and are also handy to take out on rescues when using the in-car power adapter. Brilliant service from The Incubator Shop.
Purchased as a surprise gift for my small local hedgehog rescue who already have a TLC30 which is brilliant for baby/juvenile hogs who are very weak and ill. They were thrilled. Brilliant service from The Incubator Shop. Ordered on 21 Dec and arrived on 23rd. Super fast and in time for Xmas!
This Brooder is easy to use and the instructions are easy to read. I am very pleased with my purchase. If I had to criticise At all it would be on information provided regarding humidity within the unit and perhaps a fixture within the unit for when a stable/ safe water container is required.
sarah crocker
Great incubator good quality as expected from Brinsea does exactly whatís expected, my only niggle would be it could do with a little light like whatís in my TLC 40 and thatís the only reason for 4 and not 5 stars ! otherwise Iím very happy with it.
