Advantages of Using KINTREX Thermometers
Top Customer Reviews
I use all kinds of temperature measuring gear. From very accurate mercury filled lab thermometers to Lab grade Fluke digitals. Browsing through a Frys electronics I purchased the MicroTemp brand that was the equivalent of this Kindrex. The Kindrex is better made and the battery replacement method is a breeze compared to the MicroTemp.
The specs on all of these are not very tight, that's understandable considering the price. Even so I found the MicroTemp unit consistanly within 1 degree F and consistanly repeatable. NOT so with the Kintrex, which would give inconsistant readings all over the place by 2-5 degrees. Maybe I got a better than average MicroTemp and a bit worse than average Kintrex?
I bought the Kintrex because of the higher measurement range, 428F v. 230F for the MicroTemp. Maybe the accuracy is off because it's based on a percent of Full scale and with the Kintrex having a higher full scale this would account for the problems.
If this is the case I would recommend a person buy the MicroTemp for measurements under 200F and only buy the Kintrex if they require measurements over 200F, such as Automotive use where temps are higher.
It is easy to use and compact enough to easily slip into your pocket. I recommend this product to anyone who needs a waterproof infrared thermometer.
this IR thermometer is perfect for doing this.. its small, and accurate (when used next to a much larger/more expensive laser unit - it measures withing a few tenths of a degree each time) and the readings are pretty fast.
I haven't tested out its waterproof abilities yet, but it feels solid, and has o rings in all the appropriate spots - so i don't doubt them.
One neat feature which i'm not sure was documented - if you press and hold the button, you get continuous readings... useful for scanning over a larger area to look for hot spots, or just to ensure a more accurate picture of whats going on with whatever you're measuring.
the only thing i wish it had was a backlight - but i'm not deducting a star from it, because it never claimed to have one.
All told - i'm very satisfied with this purchase, and have already recommended it to friends in the RC hobby. The price was great, and the performance is a lot better than i expected for the price.
Still gave the product 5 stars because it does what the description says it should, and temperature accuracy is still within listed specs, though leaves something to be desired.
Some caveats and advice.
This is the first IR thermometer I've had, so I can't compare it with competing products.
It's not good for boiling water. I wanted something for steeping high quality loose-leaf tea (green, oolong, white) which is temperature sensitive. I was hoping for something that was more portable and durable than an analog thermometer. It doesn't work well for boiling water. The temperature is always off compared to my other thermometers. I believe this is simply the nature of IR thermometers--the steam causes sensor problems. High-end thermometers (much more expensive) might do a better job. So although I'm disappointed, I probably had unrealistic expectations. For everything other than boiling water it seems to be accurate.
The screen is small and can be hard to read depending on the angle. When you point it straight down at something the readout is vertical, like the spine of a book. You have to look closely to read the temp. And you can't pull it away and read it because the measure temperature so quickly. You must read it while it's pointing at what you're measuring, unlike an analog thermometer. You can't lock the temp, pull it away, and then read it. This is an ergonomic issue. For many situations this won't be an issue. But for some (like making tea) it was a bit of a problem. For my needs, having the readout on the top, rather than the side, would have been better. Your mileage will vary.Read more ›
