Ordered. Thank you
Babies, children, and adults? That's everybody, isn't it?:)

Yes, you're right. Sounds better than "Digital Thermometer for everybody", though
I certainly wouldn't use this on a baby (ear thermometers are much, much safer).

Good price for a 'childrens and adults' thermometer though, so have some heat

Nothing wrong with using it for babies at all.
Had one of these, it didn't ever work.

Checked the feedback before I post, there are 4 positive feedbacks for that item, and none negative.

Anyway, for 99p it's not that risky is it?

Worth a punt perhaps, but I wouldn't rely on it if the situation is critical.
£1.29 delivered now, but still worth it - heat added
Could I stick this up my bottom?
Ear Themometers aka tympanics are safer but not as accurate

these are accurate but cheap, would not use this particular one rectally or in a baby's mouth, safe under arm though

I prefer Mercury themometers with hardened glass but they are now illegal to sell in the UK, reliable, accurate and ideal as long as you do not drop it

Looks thin enough to stick it up your tear duct.
I had one before and takes ages to get to temp. Sitting with it in your mouth for ages before it works.
Other than that it's ok
They have this in pound land so you would save on the postage. Liverpool old swan I picked one up

voted hot for those not close to a pound land. have personally got a couple from pound land in the past, work as well as the more expensive one I have from boots.
have to say from experience that if a baby is sick with a fever then trying to keep this in position under an arm long enough to get an accurate reading is not realistic but otherwise I'm sure its fine
Link takes me to an ebay listing for £1.29 and 50p del?

If you're actually a scientist / medic as you imply, you'll realise that cheap electronic thermometers are often (usually) not properly calibrated. Many years in the lab taught me this. Get half a dozen of these together and I'll give you a tenner if they read within 0.5C of each other. If you suspect a child has a fever, you'd be crazy to rely on this item.
Price increased to £1.29 + £0.50 delivery ...
Er... I bought one of these in poundland a couple of months back. Might be worth having a look.
does this have a cap on around 40 degress like a lot do?
get em from pound shop they not bad but no the most accurate dont use in ear ones on babies as u will get a wrong reading everytime told by a few doctors jus put this in babies armpit takes bout one and half mins to beep
It is not a bargain

There are a lot of similar items on eBay with even at cheaper price.
For instance this one for £0.99

ebay.co.uk/itm…089

All of them are typical unbranded Chinese product, so they should be in the same league

Item Location Hong Kong ?

The item on this deal initially was £0.99, and according to the item details it is supposed to be based in the UK.

I agree with you though that it should be similar, if not the same.

16.66p each if you want to buy 600 of the buggers mind you. I guess you could at least get a decent average reading...

True but you can get them singly from the same seller for 99p delivered, which makes £1.79 look like a pretty crap deal
Even better deal from this seller here and they're accurate too from my own experience.

Not trying to troll but: How do you know that they're accurate?
They're accurate when comparing it to a known working glass (mercury) thermometer. They both read to within 0.1 degree of each other when I've used one after the other. Obviously this is not a very scientic test hence I said that, in my own experience, they're accurate. I have in the past bought a thermometer from a pound shop and found it to be pretty inaccurate so am wary of digital thermometers.

Technology has moved on, for the better too despite not having mercury themometers any more, you can get temperatures in many ways

As long as the accuracy is within 0.2degree I'm happy
