This pistol grip type infrared thermometer has a laser and backlight for easier targeting and operation. With the large -35°C to 365°C temperature range, real time maximum reading and an power saving auto shutoff mode this infrared thermometer is a great option for accurately measuring the temperatures of a number of surfaces on a limited budget.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works very well and the max hold function is great - an area can be scanned and the maximum read off. It resets instantly on releasing the trigger so with the very fast real time reading, surveys can be very quick. The accuracy is much better than advertised - it agrees with my many house temperature measurements to within 0.1 degC. Also, contrary to the specification batteries are included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a brilliant bit of kit for the money (I paid 19.99). Sure, it's not pro-level, but for basic amateur use it's excellent. Trivial to use and from what I can tell comparing with other thermometers, accurate to within about +/- 0.3 degrees (assuming the other thermometers are accurate). We use it for monitoring temperatures all round the garden as part of our bumblebee conservation project. It's perfect for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was very impressed with this item. I found it very useful for monitoring a new heating system installed in a large building complex. The unit is easy to use and reasonably accurate. It provided a real time map of heat dispersal identifying hot and cold zones. Thumbs up Maplin for providing a good piece of kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this (on offer) primarily to make temperature measurements of cylinder head, manifolds and brake drums on vintage cars; this it does adequately and many other things as well. Only one criticism, the laser spot does not coincide with the centre of the temperature measuring zone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to do what it says I wanted this to check the actual temperature of radiators after fitting a new central heating system (air-source heat pump heating radiators). I suspected the water temperature was initially low, which it was. I calibrated radiator and wall temperature by moving other thermometers around and it seems surprisingly accurate. Works right across a room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Very Well I've had this for a month and use it nearly every day in my work for measuring wall surface temperatures in relation to condensation assessment. Great product and simple to use and read. The infra red beam gives a clear visible spot point on any surface and the temperature readings react quickly,. A good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use and has been a great help in stopping me getting my fingers burnt whilst testing the oven. We already use one at work Delivered quickly as usual

Hello will this measure the temperature to identify i s there is damp on the walls of a caravan

Asked by: paul
The unit measures surface temperature only, it has no ability to indicate moisture content or damp spots.

Can I measure heat loss from a building?

Asked by: Mick
This would offer surface temperature readings, as such you could in theory use it to check the external temperature of a buildings walls. Reflective surfaces such as windows may not give accurate readings unless you put some form of matte covering (such as a piece of masking tape) on and leave to adjust temperature to match first.

Will it measure the temperature of water in a pond with respect to fishing. Would it be surface temp or bottom temp. Would beam be refracted by the water.

Asked by: Vick
It would read surface temp but not very accurately.
