Product Description

Accurate Temperature Readings at a Glance

Ready, aim, fire! This easy-to-use and accurate temperature gun is a must-have accessory for any homeowner. The red laser pointer allows you to precision target surfaces, then a simple pull of the trigger makes the LED display lights up showing the surface temperature of whatever the IR (infrared) laser hits. Or you can turn off the laser and the IR sensor will measure the ambient temperature of the room or surface, whatever the sensor is pressed against. Our temperature gun can switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius and is useful for everyday tasks as well as home improvement projects. Whether you're looking for insulation leaks or making sure your grill has reached prime sizzling hotness, this temperature gun does it all!

Product Details:
  • Distance Spot Ratio: 12:1
  • Measurement Units: Celsius/Fahrenheit
  • LED Backlight
  • Response Time: 500ms
  • Auto Power Shut-Off
  • Automatic Data Hold
  • Low Battery Indicator
Please Note: When the trigger is pulled, you will see a red dot on whatever surface you’re firing at. However, you will not see the laser beam itself.

Save Money on Yearly Energy Costs

You could have unnecessary home expenses without you knowing it! From leaky insulation to faulty cooling systems, there are plenty of energy-efficient improvements you could make to your home, if only you knew about them! That's where the HDE temperature gun can help.

If you suspect a leak in the insulation around your front door, simply scan the IR sensor around the doorframe and the temperature sensor will show you any sudden drops in temperature. One quick insulation installation later and your home is more energy conscious!

Faulty refrigerators, malfunctioning air conditioners, gaps in your doorframes; these things can all be discovered by a quick and easy temperature measurement. The HDE temperature gun helps you achieve a greener home and can reduce your annual energy bills.

One Tool, Multiple Uses!

Take all the guesswork out of grilling. Whether you want a sizzling three-hundred degrees or a roaring four-fifty, the HDE temperature gun lets you check how hot that grill is, so you can cook your meat just right every time.

Please Note: This temperature gun measures surface temperature. It will not display the internal temperature of your food; a probe thermometer is recommended.
Our temperature gun will find sudden drops in temperature around your window and door frames where they may not be properly insulated.

Securing leaks and proper insulation are important for maintaining an energy-efficient and eco-friendly home. Lower the annual cost of air conditioning or heating your home by catching these thermal leaks where they lurk.
Need to find out if your vehicle is running hot? Avoid costly damage to your engine with a quick temperature check!

Proper automobile maintenance can help improve the life of your car or truck, and periodically checking the surface temperature of your engine will help you spot warning signs before they become expensive repair jobs.

This IR thermometer seems to use similar modules as more expensive brands. It could be a copy or an OEM version of many branded models, its commonly listed as the DT-380 or DT8380 Infrared Thermometer. For $12, its a steal if you know more about how to work it properly, and it works wonderfully.

Digital Thermometer 8:1 distance:spot ratio for 380C decodes the model number.

I tracked a similar looking manual and nearly identical device to a Chinese factory, See comments.

The manual is nearly identical to the model I received. I can't disassemble the unit to check the PCB and makers mark since part of the unit is glued.

IR thermometers are calibrated against dark or black bodies, and perform worst with reflective surfaces like stainless steel, foil, or mirrors. For best results, point to dark to black surfaces.

I tested it as no worse than 10F off, at best 1F, when measuring dark to black bodies, respectively. Its rubber coating makes an easy grip. The trigger has a sharp click, its not soft and gummy. The LCD is easy to see, and the best angle for viewing its LCD is also the best angle for measuring, perpendicular to the measured surface. Beware that when the measured point is fairly close and localized, regional changes in irregular or curves surfaces can happen, like pottery, cups, and mugs.

Using a black mug and pot, I checked IR readings against 32F ice water and 212F boiling water. The temperature was compared against an Agilent thermocouple. The IR reading was 0.5-2F off from the immersed probe. IR reads of a hot Calrod heater was compared against a thermocouple to 900F+, and the IR thermometer read true, far above its rated temperature. It read body temperature 0-2F off compared to a standard oral thermometer!

After looking at various infrared temperature guns I wondered what I would be missing by settling on this less expensive model. As it turns out, this product does everything I need and more.

The laser sight can be switched on or off, and the temperature gauge can be switched between Celsius and Fahrenheit. The unit operates on a 9-volt battery which was included in the package.

Temperature readings are quick and perfectly accurate. The display is bright and plenty large.

I use this to read the surface temperature of my pans when cooking on the stove, which really helps create consistent food quality and delicious meals.

I've also used it to locate potential thermal leaks around outlets on exterior walls.

The only potential downside to this product is the limited temperature range (other models offer a larger range), but frankly, I can't think of any reason why I would ever need to read temperatures higher than the capability of this unit.

Simple, easy to use, and relatively cheap. Nothing to complain about.

I purchased this thermometer and tested it when I received it. Worked fine, seemed to be pretty accurate. I then put it in a drawer until I needed it again. About about a month, I retrieved said device and it would not turn on. The battery tested good and I tried a brand new battery in it. Still no luck.

I contacted HDE about this issue and this is their response:


Thank you for contacting HDE. Unfortunately our return policy is the only warranty for this item. Unfortunately we will not be able to assist with a replacement/refund.

Thank you


So, now I have a paperweight that used to take temperatures. You may be luckier than I. Caveat emptor.

Easy to use. Only con is it doesn't go above 750 degrees F accurately. I use this for a pizza oven and it does the trick very well. Seems to be accurate within 4-5 degrees. Good purchase for a lower cost model.

Out of the box, this thermometer worked fine. It seems almost identical in style and function to the Fluke brand that costs a lot more. However, I found that as I used it, it drifted way out of calibration (unless of course I was actually running a fever of 112 degrees). So, on form I'd give it five stars, but since it cannot be trusted to consistently measure temperatures accurately, I had to reduce my rating to one star .... I'm not sure if I just got a bad one, or if this problem is inherent to this product. I tried to exchange it for another one to find out, but Amazon's system wouldn't allow an exchange for some reason, so I just returned it.

Update: Amazon contacted me and offered to cover the shipping charges on a replacement, so I decided to take them up on that and try another one. After using it for a couple days, I discovered that it had the same problem as the first one. Repeated temperature readings on the same surfaces varied as much as ten degrees, usually starting out low, and gradually increasing as the instrument is used. For the price, these thermometers may be useful for identifying a hot component or other non-critical uses, but if you need consistent, precise temperature readings, I wouldn't recommend this device.
