Product Review: Corewill Forehead Thermometer
Disclaimer: I provide honest reviews of products that I receive for free or at discounted rates.
The Corewill Forehead Thermometer is a non-contact infrared thermometer that can be used to check temperatures against a forehead, or against random objects.
The primary bonus for me when using this thermometer is that it basically feels like you’re using a Star Trek Tricorder. It’s point-and-shoot operation style is basically just begging for you to figure out what the temperature of every object, person and thing in your home really is (FYI, my computer mouse is 75F before I use it, and 93F afterward… important information, I know).
The actual features of the thermometer are fairly basic. You can switch between celsius and fahrenheit for display, change from forehead to object mode (which just changes what the low temperature warning pops up at) and turn the sound on an off. It’s super basic functionality and trigger-pull style of reading make it an exceptionally easy to use thermometer. I’m able to get fairly accurate readings from 2 – 3 inches (5 – 7.5 cm) away from my forehead, without too much fluctuation on the LCD. Obviously, closer is better, but considering the thermometer is advertised as a “non-contact” thermometer, I would have to consider it a product fault if it wasn’t able to read without contact.
The thermometer runs on 2 AAA batteries and includes a drawstring bag carrying case that matches the aquamarine blue color of the thermometer itself. The battery case is a little difficult to remove, as it fits extremely tight to the device, but aside from that I have no complaints. Additionally, the thermometer can be run in a constant read, or one-time read mode by either holding the trigger in, or pulling the trigger once. The added flexibility of the constant read mode makes the practical applications of this thermometer grow exponentially. I wish there would have been a laser-pointer guide to show exactly where it’s reading from, but for a non-contact infrared thermometer under $50.00 USD, it’s a feature I can live without as long as the device works the way it should, which in the case of the Corewill Forehead Thermometer, it does.
If you’re looking for a non-contact infrared thermometer with a good set of features and a reasonable price, I would recommend the Corewill Forehead Thermometer to you.
