I get mine from Home Depot. They sell a nice one that does 2 temp zones (indoor + a probe for "outdoor") + humidity for like $15. A couple of weeks ago they had 'em on sale for $10 so I grabbed 5 extras. I'd imagine Ebay would be a good place to check too.

Wal-Mart carries them as well. This is the one I use, for ~$11 each.

It shows both temps and the humidity at the same time, which I like, the only downside is that it has to be mounted inside the enclsoure for the "indoor" temp and humidity to work. Should be fine in gecko cages, but one of my snakes likes to pull his off the wall and dunk it in his water dish, which pretty much kills them. They can handle high humidity, though, and direct spraying doesn't damage them at all.

Dead temp gauge (that snake is ornery anyway, this was payback for having to sit in a rubbermaid while I cleaned his cage; he crapped both in the water dish and in the nice, clean bedding too :x )
