If warranty expires, they don't offer an option to buy battery, nor pay for them to replace, Nor a repair...they offer u a crappy discount to buy another new device from them...
You can actually get the Topdon TC001 down to $175.95 + tax (free shipping) with coupon code TAKE10 on their website.

$12 extra for that much more resolution made it an easy choice for me. Thanks for the suggestion!
I owned 2 generations of this device and the batteries are terrible. At room temperature, you'll get 15-30 minutes max. Step outside into the cold and you'll be lucky to get a few minutes. You have to run a cord from a portable USB battery.

Total junk in my opinion. Will not buy another. The should have stole a little power from the phone IMO or coded for voltage loss better.

That being said, I absolutely love having a thermal camera for residential insulation. You can tighten the place up quickly, find missing insulation and add more where most necessary.

Thanks for heads up probably worried we'll make our own model if we get inside and see what little tech there is.

Really can't understand why this tech is so insanely expensive. I guess because it's a niche product, there's no real competition to drive prices down. Incredible what $179 can buy you instead of this.

I need to buy it to see if there are multiple people in the room. Worth.

I think I can come up with ideas as to where to utilize this but am curious to know what others buy this for? What's the use case?

Main reason is checking heat loss and/or insulation. Window contractors love these because how efficient the new windows are compared to the old ones.

I bought it to identify leaks in the drafty house which I could weather-seal. It works well for this and the iOS app is fast and saves images to the iPhone. It also surprised me by identifying where HVAC ducts were behind drywall. If there's better and cheaper products for the iOS I can't find them.
