Not so accurate – Mini 1.3" LCD Digital InfraRed Thermometer with LED White Light (-50'~260'C/2*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Works fast, just seconds to measure - Soft touch plastic - Indicator highlighted all time while turned on - Small enough to carry in pocket
Cons:
- Not so accurate. Shown 101.5 C as temperature of boiling watter. - Batteries are not accessible without disassembling - There is no OFF button. Turns off automatically after 15 seconds - that wastes battery - LED is not needed, just wastes battery
Other:
Price is too large for not so accurate measuring.
Bottomline:
I would not recommend it if needed accuracy less than 1C degree. This can be used in kitchen to control temperature inside oven. But not be used in medicine to control temperature of body.
