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 2 out of 5 by from First signs are not good. Just bought this product but tomorrow it will have to go back to the shop. Either this one is faulty of there is a general problem with accuracy. I have tried it on several items such as heating pipes, painted and clean copper plus radiators and other metal objects but the readings I am getting seem to be all over the place. For example, two pipes which differ greatly in temperature, one feeling quite cool at around 25 deg C and the other too hot to touch at around 75 deg C. According to the thermometer there is not much difference with the too hot to touch pipe measuring at about 31 deg C.

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 This product is simple to use, just point and click. You don't even have to switch it on or off. Elderly people or US customers can even get the temperature in Farenheit. Uses can include checking the temperature of electronic components, especially in computers, and in the home to check temperature of cooked food.

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 5 out of 5 by from Ive used this to check the radiators when balancing and a multitude of jobs around the house. Its accurate and easy to read and a bargain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for the money have bought it to check temperatures of walls to measure effectiveness of insulation but finding lots of other uses for it. Not sure how accurate it is as the claim is 2.5% or 2.5 deg but it is 8 deg C out on a pan of boiling water. At room temperatures it seems accurate enough. Instructions could have been better as I am not sure how far away from target I should be and I do not understand the significance of spot size not have had such an instrument before.

Weight: 113g
Dimensions: 63.5(w) x 33.9(d) x 166.4(h) mm

What is the optimal distance from the object being measured?

Asked by: Tim G
This is calculated using what is know as the distance to spot ratio, the D/S for this device it is 8:1. If the target you are measuring is six inches in size, then the maximum distance at which you can reliably measure the temperature of the target is 48 inches (8:1 x 6 = 48).

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.
