Save Money on Yearly Energy Costs
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 Infrared 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 Infrared 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.
The HDE Infrared 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.

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!
At extremes changes of ambient temperature, the focusing lens need to acclimatize, the manual recommends 30 minutes. For example, if taken out to a hot summer day of 100F, from 70F air conditioning, the unit may read low. Likewise, from a warm car to the outdoors during winter. This low cost unit uses a Fresnel plastic lens which is prone to thermal deformation more than other lens materials. How much the error is depends on the extent of the difference between one ambient temp and another: if used too soon the IR light may not be optimally focused onto the IR detector.
I am impressed, so I bought another! I've been looking for a good deal on these for years, even Harbor Freight can't match it.
With 2 units now to compare I tested acclimatization, I took one unit to a 73F cold airconditioned room and left one out doors at 85F for 1 hour. Sure, enough, they were off ~3F when they were reading nearly identical earlier. After 1 hour with both units in the same room, they were off from 0-0.5F, awesome!
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 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.
So, now I have a paperweight that used to take temperatures. You may be luckier than I. Caveat emptor.
I will update my review if/when they do. Otherwise, I payed $18 for a paperweight.
I occasionally use them on the grill to determine the temperature of the grate.
