Then you need to read this post about the three amazing thermometers from Guirin I received free of charge to test out and tell you about!
The first one I tried was the Professional Clinical Large LCD Non-contact Infrared Thermometer ($39.95)
Its the largest of the three. It has a back-lit LED screen which makes it easy to read temperature even in a poor lit or dark room. If a temperature is high, it will sound an alarm. It can also tell you the last 32 temperature recordings. There is a low energy consumption as well: 100,000 on 2 AA batteries (meaning longer use time before draining them). There is also a One Year Warranty.
The next one I checked out was the 2 in 1 Professional Clinical RY230 Large LCD Non-contact Infrared Thermometer ($39.95)
This one is mid-sized of the three and I like it honestly better than the first one. It’s a little smaller, which is nice and has all the same features there is an alarm for high temperature, saves the last 32 temperature recordings with low energy consumption. It also has a back light to see numbers easier.
I think the man reason I like this one better is that it fits in my hand better and was easier for me to switch from room, surface and body temperature (Oh yeah, the other one does that too!!!). They both switch from Celsius to Fahrenheit.
Here is a video showing the first two thermometers:
Little Man REALLY wanted to hold them both and was a little grumpy
Here is a video of me taking Little Mans Temperature
Showing the two thermometers working on my Little Man who is 15 months old. Even though he was very tired, they still worked and were showing within 0.1 degrees Celsius.
This was the last one sent to me: Infrared Family Ear Thermometer TS-110 with 1 second reading to be used on Adult, Children or Babies ($29.95)
I LOVE this one. It is so fast and easy to use, smaller than the others and cheaper as well than the others. I tried this one on myself since Little Man was in bed. It came with a probe cover that is waterproof. You just need to wipe it off after each use. There is a low battery indicator and has a power saving auto power off feature. This one also has a LED screen that lights up. The range of Measurement is 93.2′ F to 109.4′ F with an accuracy of +/- 0.4’F. Cleaning Instructions – For accurate temperature each time, Probe needs to be cleaned after each use with Alcohol moistened cotton cloth to make sure there is no residue on the probe lens. Readings in Fahrenheit.
This last one is the most accurate of the three. The ear is known to have the closest to actual temperature as well. IF someone has an ear infection, this might not be the best choice. The other two offer no touch solutions so you can even test temperature while your baby or child is sleeping.
Overall I would recommend them all, with the second and third being the best choice depending on your families needs. For the family on a budget, then the ear thermometer is the cheapest in cost, but still high in quality. I do not think that this one measures in Celsius, and it does not do the room or surface temperature, but it will quickly take a temperature without messing around with oral, bum, or underarm inconsistencies. If you can afford the slightly higher cost, then go with the second because it easily converts measurements and has more features including no contact readings.
