They've been on sale there for ages! Sadly, as someone suggested, the newer ones sold there now aren't *quite* as accurate as mercury thermometers (aren't they banned now anyway?) but the ones they sold from around 2005 until 2007 (in blue packaging, with a model number starting with KT) were as accurate and great.

Be warned - mercury is highly neurotoxic.

They dont contain mercury but these are dangerous- potentially deadly

anyone going to expand on them being "deadly"

if you going to save the world via net forums at least make it clear

We have one of these, though paid about £5 I think. Its's not perfect but pretty accurate and easy to use. Rated hot!

OK you've said that twice now with no qualification. Care to explain why you would think that?

inaccurate thermometer = dangerous
in the baby section as well ffs
how can Poundland get away with this?
#14
OK these are not that inaccurate. It's not like it'll read 37.2C and the temperature on a traditional thermometer is going to be 39C! The inaccuracy on the latest one I got is closer to -0.1C. That is to say, if a mercury thermometer reads, for example, 37.2C, this will read 37.1C. Of course, your own experience may vary but the innacuracy is slight. In the past, however, some have been up to -0.3C down on traditional thermometers.

Asking alot to be a totally accurate scientific instrument for a quid !

ones i've used have been near enough though
#16
In my experience (former scientist), cheap digital thermometers are often poorly calibrated. They may measure temperature *changes* tolerably accurately, at least over a limited range, but they can't be relied upon to give absolute readings unless you've checked the calibration. In the case of a baby thermometer, a one degree difference in reading can make a very serious difference. These items may be great, but I wouldn't chance it.

A thermometer for £1? I reckon these will only be good for sticking up your ar5e.
