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.
This has a 1:1 ratio of measurement. In other words, if you're 1 inch away from your target, then your measuring surface area is 1" diameter. Not too bad, if you're measuring some large surface area but measuring area is going to be based on your own needs.
Just remember... this does an average temperature of the general area, so if you are only measuring a small area (spot check), you have to be right on top of the object, practically touching the object you're measuring. Otherwise, the surrounding area (even if it includes surface area several inches back or ambient air) will be included in the average temperature.
- Accuracy. It measures the temperature to within 10%. I'm guessing. The specs says at 73 degrees, that it can be +/- 5 degrees. You do the math). This is borderline Pro/Con.
- It's small, compact.
- Has a lanyard.
- Batteries included.
- Waterproof? Not sure. I don't want to throw this in water... just yet.
- Accuracy. This is how well you have set the scope of measuring range (spot measurements have to be right on top of object)
- Small display. Hard to read unless right lighting, and at proper angle of viewing.
- Push button is difficult (and I have small fingers, and for a guy, it's not something I brag about, but you get my point). Button is flush with the barrel/tube, but there is barely enough room to push the button. Button almost has to be pushed with finger nail. And I know how some ladies might not appreciate that. I'm a guy, with barely any finger nail length, so I'm kind of ... out of luck.Read more ›

Great results and at a reasonable price! Will recommend this to my all friendsPublished 4 days ago by Brenda Allen
Purchased for me as a gift, this is just okay. For my purposes (mostly grilling) it doesn't have to be super accurate, but I'd say that this is consistently a good 5-10°F off. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Mr. Paul Herrera
False reading on 1st read. Needs 2-3x attempts to get good reading.
