Description

Keep an eye on your family's health with this Temporal Artery Thermometer from Exergen. This thermometer is great for all ages, taking away the hassle and discomfort that comes with under-the-tongue or in-the-ear thermometers. It works by capturing naturally emitted heat over the temporal artery through the skin. A softly glowing display makes reading the output a breeze, even when you're groggy from lack of sleep.

Q: I see that this product comes with a battery however I couldn't find where it said what kind of battery it was? I just don't want to buy it to find out it takes some weird battery I'll never find.

  • A: This actually requires 1 9v battery which is easy to find in the store! I love this thermometer. It reads the temperature quick (within 1 degree difference of other thermometers) which is great when dealing with a fussy sick baby.

    submitted byGina - 5 years ago
  • A: You can actually turn off the beep so that it is silent. It is one of the settings. Hope this helps!

    submitted byMama1 - 3 years ago
  • A: it's normal batteries, i forgot it's AA or AAA. However, i don't recommend this thermometer for babies. It constantly beeps LOUDLY when you are taking the temperature and it kept waking my sleeping baby up! and the reading isn't even correct!

Most inaccurate thermometer ever. When someone doesn't have a fever, it shows their temp as around 97 degrees. This reads 1.5 degrees below actual temperature.x 1

Inconsistent and inaccurate readings compared to rectal thermometer. It should be much better for the price tag.

I had a really good one of these a couple years ago that worked very well but I dropped it and broke it and bought this is a replacement and it just has not worked very well at all. 25% of the time it doesn’t pick up your temperature at all and has an error and the temperatures that it does get are inconsistent.

Inconsistent readings, so it's hard to know what your TRUE temperture is. Also, because of the curved design, it makes it hard to take an accurate temperature on someone else, say, your child. I returned mine the next day, and when I did, the Cashier said that he bought this and returned his as well. Wow.

Not accurate. It reads too low. My son was burning up. This said he was 99, so normal. We went to the doctor an hour later and his temp was over 102. Glad I took him and didn’t trust this one!

I got this at my baby shower (kiddo is now 8) & we still use it!!! It’s very accurate, one of the best ways to get an accurate temp without worrying of running it along a round forehead is to place is right behind the lower ear lobe. I had a very hard time trusting it when kid was a baby, but it was always accurate with the pit or rectal temp & this is quick & painless. This thing has held up through many drops, chewing, losing the cap about 10 million times & just getting thrown wherever, has only gone through a couple batteries (in 8.5 years is excellent tbh) a few moves & lots of colds, bugs, fevers & routine checks before school a couple years ago.

Compared multiple readings between this thermometer and my trusty oral thermometer. Super accurate! Was never more than 0.1 degree off. Bought this for my baby who always seems to run warm and is tired of rectal temps!

This is the most frustrating thermometer I've ever owned! The instructions say to depress the button but half the time it shuts itself off. There's no comfort level that you've take the reading correctly. I'm going back to the ear thermometer that I used for 15 years.
