Product Description

Color: Deep Yellow

The SainSonic SS5380 Thermometer can be used for obtaining accurate temperatures instantly without having to contact the object being measured. It works by capturing and measuring the invisible infrared energy naturally emitted from all objects. It offers an easy and safe method to instantly measure surface temperatures of objects which are difficult or unsafe to contact. The SainSonic SS5380 has a rugged, ergonomic design and features a backlit LCD display with built-in laser sighting. It has a measurement range of -32 Deg to 380Degrees (26 Fto +716 F) and utilizes a switchable on/off laser pointer for target location. The practical distance-to-spot ratio of 8:1 is suitable for most consumer and commercial applications. Ideal for General Construction, Electrical, HVAC, Food service, Home Inspection, Plant Operations and Automotive applications.

Purchased five of these to use as a quick reference of heat duct output. When they came in we tested all five pointing at the same spot in a room and all five gave different readings ranging 9 degrees difference. two of them were close within half a degree.
I would classify them as a fun toy with general accuracy.

This thing is really cool. Simple, elegant and useful. As a volunteer firefighter, I got this to quickly and cheaply look for hotspots on a fire scene with our expensive Thermal Imaging Camera was already in use. Luckily, no fires since I bought the temp gun, but I've used it with an indoor fireplace to make sure nearby objects weren't heating up, to check oven/food temps, how hot the pavement in the sun is, etc.

The unit works pretty easily: press the trigger once to wake it out of standby mode, then press and hold again to activate the laser pointer and infrared reader. The backlight helps to see the display, and the numbers on the display are easy to read. Simple, effective, comfortable in the hand. And the packaging was old-school cardboard rather than the impossible to open PVC plastic stuff everything comes in. A+ on the packaging as well.

My husband bought this device through my Prime account. I was all like "What the hey is this gadget you bought?" Looked like a toy taser to me. At least that's what I was hoping it wasn't... But, we were in the process of moving into a new-construction "Energy star" certified house; you know, high efficiency "heat" pumps, ect. And he wanted to "test stuff."

He set out checking all the heat registers of our old gas heated house and then compared the temps to the new "heat" pump, which we promptly renamed "lukewarm" pump. He checked everything: closets, door and window seals, attic temps, floor temps, stove burners, oven; you name it he tested it. He tested day and night in every nook in the house. We now know the temp of toilet seats at 2 freaking AM! Then he looked at me and winked. I promptly hid the damn thing.

He shared all readings and discrepancies found with the builder who had to admit it was the single most expensive toy (to him) he ever had the pleasure of confronting. But, it saved us a bunch of hassle and expense, fixing his stuff before it was our stuff.

Next he was in the garage balancing carbs on "Connie," his motorcycle. At least that's what I think he was doing. I'm no mechanic. Now hubby takes this gadget to hunting camp to test whatever men test when telling lies, drinking and playing poker...

Seriously, if you want to buy the neatest gadget for a present or whatnot (hubby says it ranks second only to his saws-all as a man-tool) you need to get one of these for the old man. It rolled years off his mental age, not that he needed to do that ...

I received the Laser Thermometer promptly. I used it to check things around the house like the HVAC Thermostat oven temp and other things that had a reference. All checked well until I started checking cool or cold items. Being winter, I checked the outside temp at the outside thermometer, the inside of the refrigerator and ect. That is where the Laser Thermometer was out of cal by more that 10 degrees.

When I discovered this, it had been passed the return date, as stated by the company policy. I decided to email the Sain Store customer service department that was listed on the Amazon sight. I explained the problem and asked if I could return the defective unit and receive a replacement. In less 12 hours, I had a reply. They are replacing the defective unit and I don not have to go to the trouble or expense to return original unit. I have not received the replacement unit, being that it has been only 3 working days since I received the notification of the replacement. I will followup with another post if there is any unresolved issues. At this time I am very satisfied with the Sain Store response and intend to give them additional business.

As far as I can tell, this works almost perfectly. Boiling water on my stove always reads at around 210 Fahrenheit, which it should. Remember that the further above sea level you are, the lower the boiling point, which liquid water at a boil cannot exceed. Water that is freezing into ice likewise reads at 32, plus or minus a degree. All told, while I cannot verify perfect accuracy outside of these ranges, thus far I have been very happy with it.

As a side note-when I measured the temperature of high-luster metal surfaces, the accuracy seems to diminish. For my purposes, this is not particularly important, but I did find this interesting.

super awesome price. Great great quality. I've dropped it, I've thrown it in my toolbox. I've had it in my car for weeks, just playing with it. the kids play with it, and its still working strong. Very accurate. Very easy to work with. Point and shoot. You'll find hundreds and hundreds of things to use it for. I use it for inside the house to see if the wall is cold or hot, to figure out my insulation issues. I use it on the vehicle all over the place to find out what are the hot spots on the engine, And cooling system. I even put in my air conditioning unit, inside the house, and inside the car. To figure out if the air conditioning system is putting out what it's supposed too. I work at a shop. I'll let the other guys use it. Even the owner ended up ordering one cuz he was so impressed with it. Not like those cheaply made ones at the discount stores.Plus the dogs love chasing the laser.
