1. Has been this price for a few weeks, not sure why, but there are generics available on eBay for the same price that this company may be trying to compete with during the run up to black friday.

2. This is a better deal even if slightly more expensive ($5.14) because it has an emissivity setting: Nubee Temperature Gun Non-contact Infrared Thermometer MAX Display & EMS Adjustable [amazon.com]. ... I didn't know what emissivity was either. IR thermometers are basically digital cameras measuring infrared wavelength coming from a surface. Two surfaces may have the same actual surface temperature but the thermometer will measure them differently due to differences in their ability to radiate energy (in the IR spectrum specifically) to the camera. For example a smooth shiny metal surface will produce a different reading than rough black asphalt even though they have the same temperature. The orange model linked above allows emissivity to be set from a reference chart like this (https://images-na.ssl-images-amaz...9775c9.jpg) for reflective metal versus non-reflective asphalt, among many others. Ultimately it's more accurate than using the same generic value for everything.

3. Don't use a temperature gun to measure a person's body temperature. Hospitals don't use these for a reason.
... the reason is skin temperature is irrelevant from a medical standpoint unless you are actively getting burned. It does not reflect body temperature. Rectal probes get as close as possible to the core body temperature through direct measurement which is why they are the most accurate and preferred method. Probes placed in the armpit, under the tongue, inside the ear, and swiped across the forehead get as close as possible to the arterial bed carrying blood that just came from the core of your body (assuming you're not approaching death) and that is what those thermometers are measuring. This is particularly the case for babies and toddlers; if you use this to measure temperature you will report an inaccurate reading and might be told to stay home when you need to get to the ER. Bigger deal than anything posted on SD and avoided with a $5 digital rectal probe (can also be used in the armpit) or $30 for a bling one that goes in the ear . https://www.webmd.com/children/tc...c-overview. Just because a factory and private label got together to paint one of these temperature guns blue or pink and sell it at 800% markup doesn't mean it's able to change the laws of physics that prevent them from producing accurate readings of body temperature.

If you want to know the temperature of the outside of your butthole...sure!

The handle is shaped funny and pretty wide, but you can try

I just bought a similar one at a similar price. My mind was overflowing with potential uses but, eh, it's underwhelming. I should probably read the instructions or something.

The 8500H model is only a few cents more. Any reason not to get that one?

Looks like it has a higher temp range and will save the max temp if doing a scan.

Yes I use one to check oil temperatures and it works well. Also used it for bath water on my new born. If you don't have one, but you are interested in science or anything, just buy.
