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.

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.

Poor Battery Life

About Me First Time Parent
Comments about Safety 1st FeverLight 1 Second Ear Thermometer:
I've barely used this and it tells me the battery is dead. So I bought a new battery used it a few times and it's dead again. It also is not very accurate. Gives me different readings back to back.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Difficult to Use
The point of using this product is to have a quick, convenient, accurate way of getting a child's temperature. I get a LO (error message) most of the time and would have spent far less time just using a regular armpit thermometer. I ended up waking my sick baby because it was VERY DIFFICULT to get a reading. Whether it's accurate or not is a different story. Bad, bad product.
Don't buy. Horrible product

About Me Parent of Two or More Children
This thermometer is terrible. My son has a temp of over 101 with a under arm thermometer, this one only says 97.3. It makes my son cry every time we try to use it, and the buttons on it don't make sense. Don't waste your money I know I wish I didnt.
I'm very disappointed with this product
Hi my name is Ana. I'm from Brazil and I bothered the ear thermometer in the USA when I was pregnant. I barely used on my daughter. She's 18 months old now. I used couple times and worked good. Them when I tried to use again the thermometer start to show LO so I replace the battery and never worked again. The battery that I bought is CR2032 3V. I'm very disappointed with the product especially because I'm not in USA to resolve this problem. The model number is 49659Lot# 1405AV.

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.

Do not waist your money it's trash !
DO NOT BUY THIS IT IS GARBAGE !!!!
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.
