Comments about Vicks Behind Ear Gentle Touch Thermometer Model V980, 1 ea:
This was a very good buy. I have one child whose ear-holes are too small for the 'in the ear' types to work properly (once at a hospital they tried five or six times in ear, and then in the bum, there was a 10 degree discrepancy between ear and rear...) so I needed a quick temp accurate thermometer that was NOT in the ear. This one fits the bill! The only drawback is the quick set up instructions aren't very thorough at explaining how to use it. I kept getting an error (POSition) with a triple beep, but then I read in the larger booklet how to do it right. MAKE SURE YOU DO IT RIGHT before you give up on this thermometer if it isn't working for you - it works VERY well if you follow the larger booklet's instructions!!
You have to have it in the right location (that part's easy), hold it still, and then press and HOLD the start button on the back side till it beeps and flashes the temp. This would be only slightly easier if they could put the read out screen on the back side where that button is instead of toward the child's head where the sensor is, but after a few tries I figured it out. Very pleased with this product and would definitely buy again.
My kids range from toddler to teen and this is the best thermometer I've had since the first were born.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
