I received a Braun Thermoscan 5 from Influenster for testing purposes.
The Braun Thermoscan 5 is an ear thermometer. It came at a great time since my son was having surgery (monitoring post-op temps) and now he has a snotty nose.
The Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer with Exclusive ExacTemp Technology. Pre-Warmed tip ensures temperature accuracy. Guidance System confirms secure position for accurate readings. LO shows up on the screen to confirm that the readings are not within range and HI if the readings are too high.
Pros: Thus far I have been very impressed with this thermometer. I checked it’s accuracy on my whole family comparing its readings to those of a regular thermometer and it was dead on. The ease and quickness of use are great, especially with 2 young boys.
Cons: Cost. I received this product free from Influenster for testing purposes but it runs around $30-$40 from mass retailers. Also, unsure of the cost for replacement lens covers once we run out of the once that came with the thermometer.
Overall this is a great product and I would recommend for everyone in the market for a thermometer.
