Any idea if this is nationwide?

Just a friendly warning...I've found ear thermometers very unreliable to use. Think more people complained about this last time there was an offer on here for them. Very good price, HOT in fact. But mine was sitting in a cupboard (meant to take it back to the shop) and I've recently binned it. Think I paid £20 for it at the time...

Do you mean that this version made by Braun is unreliable as these are similar to what is used in most hospitals.

I think they are only unreliable if they are used incorrectly.
For instance not placed in the ear canal properly
Re-using the plastic caps more then the once
that sort of thing...other then that I have never had any problems with mine!

Brilliant deal - i paid about £40 for mine over a year ago and have found it indespensible!!! :thumbsup:

Great deal, hope this is nationwide, will give them a ring later on.

It is nationwide confirmed by local SD but they had no stock. It's worth visiting ur local SD to try ur luck.

hmm, this is hard to believe.

I dont think this will be in any of the shops. A good price is £20. but £2.50 is crazy.

Absolutley, the IR termometers are quite simply the most accurate way of measuring core temperature.

this is amazing!!!!!! I have always wanted to know the temperature of my ears!!

These are great, always found mine reliable. Amazing price!!! HOT!!!

I'm shocked. i paid £35 for mines

None at Marble Arch or Holborn but great find if you can get hold of one

None in Grantham Which store was the deal found?

None in farnborough

In case it saves anyone from a wasted journey, none in Trafford Centre.

Banned

Any good deals going on an al thermometers? Many thanks.

I bought a Nurofen-branded one in Lloyds Pharmacy, it's as accurate as the Braun (though not so convenient to use) and under £10 at the moment.

I've found ear thermometers very unreliable to use.


The secret is to take (and record) regular readings when there's nothing wrong with the patient, then any rise when they're feeling ill is genuine.
