Very fast, but quite inaccurate

Sep 1, 2006

Pros:Quick, reasonable price

Cons:Inaccurate

I bought this thermometer in hopes of one that would quickly take the temperature of a very wiggly toddler. It is very quick, only taking about 10 seconds for an underarm reading. It did detect that my daughter had a fever.

However, when I tested the thermometer several times myself orally I found it to be quite inaccurate. I took my temperature using two other digital thermometers (one BBT therm, one fever therm.) and the reading on the Vicks was out by nearly an entire degree every time! The Vicks read higher than the others.

I would use this only on the suspicion of a fever to get a quick read, however I would use another more accurate thermometer to get an accurate reading following.
