When I found out that an even longer ranged version of this product came out I had to get it. I love the original thermometer but to get the extra range I needed a second phone of which I do not have. But anyway, having this plus version really helps. It's really smart of them to put a signal booster for the Bluetooth inside the charger! When you use it though make sure to keep the charger close to your oven. If you're on the fence about spending the extra $$ for this plus version, don't be, get the plus...you'll thank me later.
