I've been through probably 4 thermometers since my son was born (now 4) & this one by far is the best!! It has lastest the longest (goin strong on 2 years) & it is the most accurate one I've bought!! I'm a nurse & its even more accurate than the ones we use at work! I even tried the new temporal scanner & it doesnt "slide" well across the forehead when your child has a fever & is sweating! The only thing I would add is dont forget to pull your infant/child's ear up & back to open the ear canal for a more accurate reading!

I did alot of research before I picked this thermometer. My daughter is a year old and the old rectal thermometer was a struggle. She wouldnt stay still for the ten seconds it needed, and I was afraid with all of her protesting I would hurt her. I looked at the reviews and I didnt know what to think. Half said it was junk, but the other half said it was perfect and accurate. For nearly 40$ I didnt want to pay for someting that others said was junk. I went ahead and bought it anyways because my dauaghter had a fever and I had no way to check it. I was so happy with this product. I read the instructions,(you cant use the ear that was resting on a pillow or blanket) and tested it on myself about a dozen times and in both ears, the readings were always within .2 of the previous temp. Pretty accurate. I was 98.7. So I went in my daughters room and checked it while she was sleeping. She didnt even wake up, the beep was queit enough not to wake her but loud enouth for me to hear. The indicator light was helpful in making sure it was inserted correctly and taken correctly. and in case you dont hear the beep you can just watch for when the green light goes out. It only takes about two seconds. I checked her ear three times and I got the same reading within .2 degrees. 102.7, 102.5, and 102.7. I absolutely love this product and recomend it to everyone. It works with adults and squirming toddlers. It was well worth the 40$. And if anyone is skeptical like i was the cashier told me if i didnt like it i could return it.

This product is great. So everyone reading this knows, there is a difference in rectal, underarm, and oral temperatures. Rectal temps are usually higher, as they are internal, while underarm temps are lower, as they are external. Oral is the middle ground. This product is acurate, my opinion is that you maybe educate yourself about what normal temps for your age of child should be.

When my daughter was 1, she had ear infection after ear infection with her temp running as high as 104. The standard rectal, or axillary thermometers, weren't really a doable option when I had to check her temp so often. Then one day I came across a Braun Thermoscan HM-1. It was $75 dollars, which was a big investment then. I fell in love with it immediately. It was the one item that made taking her temp not the horrendous task that it had been. It always gave an accurate reading, batteries lasted forever, it was wonderful. Since it worked so well, I decided to try another brand of thermometer of this type. I put batteries in it, used it one time, put it in the drawer and went back to "old faithful". I was never able to get an actual reading with it. Last week, I decided to buy another one, but this time stuck with the Braun Thermoscan. I brought it home, it came with batteries already installed, turned it on and tried it out. Perfect, just like the HM-1. What did I do with my HM-1, it is still taking accurate readings, so, I sent it home with my, now almost 19yr old baby girl! If you want an electronic thermometer that is accurate, durable, over-all wonderful, you need to stick with Braun Thermoscan. Time is the best judge ever.

This ear thermometer is so easy to use, even my husband figure it out, without having to look at the instructions. It is very accurate and my daughter doesn't scream anymore when I go to take her temperature!

  • A. It does have a case. The thermometer is the top of the case and it snaps into the bottom section that stores the covers.

  • A. Its not a completely covered case. The part that goes in the ear gets covered by a hard cover (Kind of like a phone when your not talking the mouth piece gets covered by the base). It also holds 1 box of the lens filter inside. Its pretty good
