If there’s one thing you that gets hammered home as a parent, it’s that it’s incredibly difficult to get your kids to do the things they need to do. Even a seemingly simple activity, like trying to take a temperature, can be an epic battle. That’s where something like the Thermotalix 8 in 1 Digital Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer comes in.
As the name implies, you can take ear and forehead temperatures without having to establish contact. Of course, the Thermotalix can also measure object (including liquids) and room temperatures, so it’s far more versatile than just for medical use.
In the box you’ll find the thermometer itself, along with the required CR2032 button cell battery, thermometer stand, and detailed user manual. In the user manual you’ll find definitions of the device’s display symbols, e.g., smiley face = forehead temperature mode, as well as descriptions of the six functions, e.g., F – 2, Body/Object temperature selection.
As expected for a device like this, you can easily switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius, the latter of which is the default out of the box. During my testing, I found measuring speed incredibly fast and precision to be excellent. And yes, my wife and I were able to get an accurate forehead measurement from our youngest daughter, who’s 18-months-old. For that alone, this compact device is definitely recommended.
Thanks to The Holy Land for the review unit.
