This place apparently thrives on "if you can't find cheaper you MUST vote HOT".

I vote cold, IMHO its needless garbage regardless of price (with or without £8.95 delivery charge).

Useful to tell if someone is dead or pretending

I used an IR thermometer similar to this when I balanced the radiators in my house.

Not quite needless garbage, just because you can't think of a use for one dosent make it needless. Anyone who keeps exotics will almost definately have one, although factoring in postage better can be had for same price.
I got a pocket sized one off amazon CEM IR177L which I can highly recommend to anyone looking for one, going for around £20 on eBay.

You're right, it is free delivery.

any good for babies ?

What would this thermometer be used for realistically (apart from owning exotics)? With a measurement range of +/- 2.5C, wouldn't that be too large of a discrepancy to diagnose a child with a fever? Since a fever is defined as having a body temperature of over 37.5C, this would not be accurate enough to make a proper diagnosis.

I believe digital thermometers are usually calibrated so that their range is +/- 1C.

Correct me if I'm wrong anyways...

People who are interested in their cars would use this, people who have an interest where their homes are losing heat would use it. If you were doing electrical installations you could use it.

+\- 2.5'c which is a very big tolerance for measuring body temp.

Newer vehicles such as mercedes require one of these to measure the temperature of the oil in a gearbox. You can only drain the oil at a certain temp or something along those lines. Forgot now. Either way its ideal for any mechanic.

As a paediatric nurse, this is definitely not suitable and should never be considered for taking the temperature of a human, regardless of age. It's totally unsuitable.

I'm sure Yvette fielding would be interested in one of these.

Wh..what was that?! Did you hear something?!

No, they'll never get their little hands round the handle.

I'm in the hobby of owning lots of remote control cars! We used these to test motor and speed controller temperatures when playing about with gearing and batteries So very useful

Excellent for balancing radiators and checking for cold spots.

I used to use an ir thermometer when I was into rc nitro cars, very handy so as to not melt your engine when tuning.

same thing all over ebay for cheaper.
They are useful for checking the oven temperatures in my Aga.

Good for narrowing down intermittent faults on a whole load of things; mechanical contact as well as finding overheating components on a pcb or controller, solder reflows, etc. And a lot cheaper than a thermographic camera for tribological hotspots.

ive seen people use these for cooking like measuring temp of steaks. maybe making coffee?

no idea how practical it is though

wonder if it would be useful to measure temp of food inside oven. i got a gas oven which doesnt really tell you the temperature lol

I used to use these in the reptile vivs, much more accurate and you can quickly measure a variety of places.

Useful for balancing radiator temperatures on a central heating system but cheapy ones can be had of fleabay

Got one of these and paid a fair bit more.

Extremely useful for using the laser pointer and establishing heat leakages around doors and windows to add insulation as well as seeing areas in the attic that need more insulation.

Very useful.

Is it a speed camera?

Have these at work (chef) but the tolerance is +/- 1 - used for checking surface temps of food in display warmers (ban-maries) and also oil temps in fryers, sugar/chocolate temps for sugar art/chocolate work etc.

Pretty useful really but do not use for internal temps for meats etc, they do NOT penetrate the surface.
Sounds obvious but I have seen a couple of chefs who thought they did before I put them right.
