We had our newest member of the Mavromatis family born on 3.2.11 and while we were in the hospital I asked the nurse which thermometer she recommended. Her recommendation was for one of the temporal artery types. So I ordered the Exergen 2000C Temporal Artery Thermometer from Amazon.com and it arrived today. It is a very cool tool and after a few different subjects (myself, my wife and my daughters) it reads very accurate temperatures pretty much instantly. The case design is simple and plain, but was very surprised to find out that it is “Made In U.S.A.”. I guess the only “features” to mention is that is has a LCD screen, takes 1,000 readings per second, and has a “Silver Ion Antimicrobial Probe Head”. Priced at around $34, this is a MUST HAVE for any household with kids where keeping them still is almost impossible. The Exergen 2000C Temporal Artery Thermometer is Mavromatic’s Cool Tool for March 2011!
