Have to disagree with this post.......would you really trust your baby's health to something that cost 99 pence? I know I wouldn't! Cold, because it's cheap tat. Sometimes people, you do get what you pay for and a bargain isn't always the best option.

Excellet price but i have used one of these and an ear one. The ear temp is far mor accurate so i would never buy this but hot price.

Might work for adults but for kiddies i agree with above comment...

So if it was £12.99 in Boots then it would be better quality?

Possibly not but you'd like to think a reputable firm like Boots would have quality tested a product that was going to be put into a childs mouth. Home Bargains is all about buy cheap, sell cheap and stuff the consequences.

What you find in home bargains a lot of the time is exactly the same branded stuff you get in Tesco, Boots etc.
My point is if you buy Duracell batteries in Home Bargains for £2, they are not going to run out quicker than buying them from you local Spar for £5

I completely dissagree. All companies in the UK must comply with regulations and that includes the products that it has sourced, if they are not up to scratch they are not acceptable. For instance, Argos (who dont make the best quality furniture) but are a reputable company, had many issues not so long ago with the leather sofas they had imported from China. They failed to carry out proper quality assurance checks as sufered the consequences. Everybody makes mistakes... big and small.

But i also agree with other comments made, great to find out room temp but for children the ear thermometer is much more accurate probably 1/100 degree!!!

i had one like this and my daughter hated it, i couldnt get a proper reading as she wouldnt let me keep it in her ear for long enough, so i invested in one of the bruan ones and its the best thing ive bought, it only takes a second to get a reading.

I'd agree myself that I wouldnt personally use this for my kids. But like me, if you were looking for a thermometer for personal adult use, this is ideal. I have been using it myself for about a week and it OK.

With a baby, a small error in temperature could result in DEATH.

The Braun in-ear model is reliable and used in professional contexts, how many nappies can you buy for £26?

The margin for error is huge in cheaper thermometers. You don't have to read a peer reviewed journal to discover that.
