Gogogu Large LCD Non-contact Infrared Ear Thermometer Baby Thermometer

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 3.50.58 PMAs any parent will tell you, getting a temperature reading from your young child can be a real pain in the derriere. Most young children are not willing to stand still for the duration needed to get an accurate reading from a standard thermometer. A contactless thermometer seems to be an ideal tool for such situations. This Gogogu thermometer is indeed a godsend, but it’s not without its limitations.

This thermometer is for the most part easy to use. It takes only a second for it to get a temperature readings, which is really great. The small digital screen displays the reading clearly, although it could be a bit brighter.

One major issue that I have with this thermometer is that the readings are not very consistent. I’ve done several temperature readings in a row, and each one of them ave me a slightly different result. Sometimes results were close to each other, but sometimes they differed by more than a degree. The results also varied with the ear that I used, also sometimes by a whole degree. The good news is that the thermometer is very quick and easy to use, so if you don’t mind averaging several repeated measurements, then you will still probably get a good overall reading.

Another issue that I have with this thermometer is that the instructions are not all that clearly written. It was hard to understand sometimes if I had to hold and release a button during the setup, or keep holding it. Nonetheless, with a bit of trial and error I managed to get it working.

The thermometer fits nicely in your hand. It is not built from the highest quality plastics, but it does get the job done. I would certainly continue using it and do recommend it to other parents – especially considering its affordable price.

    Does this ear thermometer have ear probes that comes with it?

      No it doesn’t. Also, after several months of use I’ve discovered that this is not a very accurate thermometer. I would not recommend getting it.

    Well, an ear thermometer is good, but I would recommend another type of thermometer, like a non-contact thermometer. For me, non-contact thermometer is more accurate than this one and you don’t have to hold still your kids just to get their temperature. All you have to do is point it in your child’s forehead and then you can have the temperature. As easy as that.
