This tiny device with the long name is a tool you should have in your toolbox for temperature reading occasions. With a temperature range from -58 degrees F to 1022 degrees F, which is -50 degrees C to 550 degrees C, this temperature gun should be able to meet the typical needs of the average person. The temperature is measured on the surface of what you aim it at. A pot of liquid on the stove will be hotter submerged than its surface temperature, so this is not the best tool for measuring the internal temperatures of liquids, meats or other foods.
Check your vents for proper heat or air conditioning temperatures blowing out. Measure the heat coming off the manifold before you start tinkering under the hood. With a backlit LCD screen, results are easily seen in most conditions. The backlighting automatically turns off after 15 seconds, saving the 9V battery life. It’s recommended that measurements should be taken within a distance of 15″.
This unit weighs less than 7 ounces and comes with a 2-year warranty.
