Never worked right- everytime I took my son's temp (he is now 8 1/2 months) it always said 96.1. Tried on myself and gave another reading. Even when my son's temp was 102.8 rectally this showed 96.1! Don't waste the money- for 10 dollars more go with the Braun.

Comments about Safety 1st FeverLight 1 Second Ear Thermometer:
Received this as a gift, but can't figure out how to use it. I don't know why it's so complicated. I lost the manual and instructions won't download, I had to change the battery the first time I tried using it. They should have labeled the buttons.

Quick, Easy to use, easy to hold, appears to be accurate

About Me Parent of Two or More Children
I came yo the product page to get the instruction manual and was surprised to see all the negative reviews. We've had several grocery-store-cheap digital under-arm thermometers and those are terrible. We've also had 'nice' thermometers that were clearly superior to the grocery store brands. When our last one broke (the kido tried prying something open with it) we decided to go premium and got this one. I would say it's accurate and easy to use and fast (Trifecta!). It's also easy to read (even in a dark room) and easy to operate. I'm not sure how reviewers say it's hard to use. It's one button to turn it on/measure and another button to turn it off. It's also well built and comfortable to hold. The best feature is the "1 second" read time -- it really is one second -- which is great considering a lot of the 6- or 10-second thermometers take a lot longer than advertised.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Do not waist your money it's trash !
DO NOT BUY THIS IT IS GARBAGE !!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Low battery out of box and hard to use.
This product had a low battery out of the box and it's actually quite hard to use. It's not clear if the temperature is the current one or a stored one.. It's just really not a great product that should be straight forward.

I can't say it is accurate, but at least I can see any change in temperature. It is quick enough so that my grandchildren don't fuss too much.

cant figure out how to use, even though its two buttons only. downloading manual is jibberish so no online support.
Terrible do not buy
from Miami, FL
Very difficult to use. You do not get accurate readings.
from boston ma
I like that there is a sad face or smily face, however I cannot change it from C to F and it asks me to clean it often and i do but it doesn't register. two buttons and I don't know what they do I had to use a sharpy to remind me. not sure how long to hold the button down to get temp. I was tired of the across the forehead, since it wouldn't read the same number twice. that one is the worst. I thought an ear reader would be better and efficient. it's complicated when i can't get the right reading. I like that it's fast but still don't trust these new thermometers. I wish I had an old mercury one, those were reliable.
Read reviews before buying!! wish i had!!
Unbelievable, but it is Impossible to figure out how to use!! buttons are not marked and it is very frustrating because with only two buttons you would think you could figure it out but it is very badly designed! do NOT buy this thermometer.
Doesn't work effectively
By Frustrated Father

I would type things that are great about this product, but there isn't. It worked the first time and that was it! After that, I would have to change out the battery every single time I used it and now it doesn't even turn on! I only see LO on the screen and it's a brand new battery! Since I bought a 6-pack of 2032 batteries, I figure it was that one battery, nope, it was all 6 batteries that didn't work!!!!
