Useful, versatile and accurate – nice little carry pouch!

This item arrived inside a protective retail packaging box. The retail box is highly attractive, glossy with bright colours.

Inside the box were the thermometer itself, including end cap, a nice, velvety pouch for the device, and a useful instruction manual, with decent illustrations. It was nice to find that a pair of AAA batteries was already installed in the device, with a plastic pull tab to stop them losing charge whilst in transit.

Really clear readout, so many useful functions.

This item arrived inside a solid protective brown cardboard box. There was a nice touch on the back of the box with a “thanks for purchasing” type message. Inside the box was a retail style blister pack containing the item. Unfortunately the blister pack had been badly folded trying to crush it into the box that was too small for it, but at least the item itself wasn’t damaged.

Inside the blister pack, along with the item, were some glossy instructions printed on the packaging, and a peel off label showing what should be displayed on the very large and clear screen. Insert two AAA batteries in the easily opened back, and the device springs to life. Put the probe on the end of the long cable out of a window, and you get a display of external temperature, internal temperature, internal humidity (with a little smily face telling you whether it’s humid or dry), and a clock.

Infrared Thermometer Review

Useful, versatile and accurate!

This item arrived inside its retail packaging, in a bubble wrapped pouch. The retail box is highly attractive, glossy with bright colours, and has a magnetic closure, so you can keep the thermometer in the original box if you prefer, and it’s easy to get to.

Inside the box were the thermometer itself, including end cap, a stand for the device, and a nice, large, sensible instruction manual, with decent illustrations. There appeared to be space for something else in the box, and reading the instructions it says a CR2032 battery should be included in the package, but I couldn’t find it, and the Amazon listing clearly states “Battery Not Included”, so maybe that’s for different markets. I’m an IT consultant though, so I have plenty of those batteries knocking around (they’re used as CMOS batteries for computer motherboards, often also car keys too).

Useful little thermometer for barbecue days!

This thermometer arrived wrapped in a bubble wrap pouch, inside an attractive retail box.

After prying open the battery cover, and inserting a single AAA battery, the device sprang into life. Pull out the probe, the device turns on. Clip the probe back into place, it turns off again.
