How accurate are these cheap Thermos? Is the the same as buying a cheapo multimeter?

the reviews are that these are quite accurate. I don't think its really advanced technology, although Im not sure the exact way in which they work. I wouldn't check the baby's temp with it and make a diagnosis, but you can check how cold your beer is from across the yard. lol. the possibilities are endless.

You can use it to check when the other half is "in heat" without the embarrassment

I have one and find that it's very rarely used other than novelty purposes. Once was for a pan full of oil and the other is jam temperature which is very finicky. Other than that you'll find a temperature probe is way more useful.

Useful for determining the art of seduction maybe? lol.

Most cheap multi-meters are surprising accurate. This is likely to be pretty accurate too.

However, if it's not used correctly then errors can sneak in.

Useful in the winter for checking the outside temperature of walls, windows, doors etc to see where you are losing heat!

Have the same model, and its accuracy is quite poor, tbh. It doesn't measure anything that is reflective well at all. However, as I wanted it only to see were the house insulation was good/poor it did the job very well - accuracy of the actual reading wasn't necessary for this, just colder/warmer.

It's cheaper on ebay and you don't have to wait for shipping from China.
In fact cheaper at amazon and it's shipped from amazon

I used to love DX but it's really expensive.

I got one to help with finding drafts and establishing where to put insulation in a flat roof that had poor access. Obviously I tried it on the cat as well though.

Brought one before from supplier in Amazon, does not seem to record correct temperature.

I have a cat! Do I need one of these?

Don't use the laser pointer as a thing for your cat to chase. Mine's now conditioned so he knows the 'click' sound the trigger makes, meaning it's a nightmare when I have serious use for it!

I've got one of these but they don't seem to be very accurate.

Well I'm not going to buy one from DX, but I'm definitely getting one.
Why did nobody tell me I needed one of these until now?
I've got three cats, three motorbikes and a wife.
I don't know the temperature of any of them, except the wife, 'cos she's hot.

Thank you dantanta, have a hot.

Not a good one as ebayer claims UK based but is China based. If they lie about that which is easy to confirm, I wouldn't trust a word they say.

The link you gave is for £9.64 so it's not cheaper plus free postage only if you spend over £10 or are a Amazon Prime member.

Essential for anyone that keeps reptiles, wouldn't be without one

It's gone up in price, people must have brought it and it's pushed the price up.
Try this one:

Also if you look at the 'More Buying Choices' you'll see there are cheaper ones still but are shipped from China.

That price thing is always going on. I wouldn't buy direct from China, far to many fakes and dodgy dealers. Thanks for link.

These are good for balancing the central heating system.
