We’ve described all the important features of this infrared thermometer in this article.
Now, without any further ado, let’s talk about the different features of this infrared thermometer.
Design and Built
The Etekcity lasergrip is made of plastic with a filling of a rubber plastic which is really soft.
Does that mean that the thermometer feels a bit cheap?
Absolutely not. In fact, it makes you feel relaxed and comfortable while you’re holding the thermometer in your hand. It’s also worth mentioning that it’s a lightweight infrared thermometer so you can easily carry it with you as long as you want.
Unlike other infrared thermometers, Etekcity Lasergrip 1022D comes with 5 buttons.
It means you can easily learn to use this thermometer.The main button is used as a trigger and it comes right under your index finger when you hold the thermometer in your hand. Whenever you need to operate the thermometer, simply press the trigger and it will measure the temperature of the object by throwing infrared light on it.
The rest of the buttons can be found on the back of the thermometer right under the LCD display.
The left button is used to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit and the right button can be used to turn on or off at the laser. The top button can be used to turn on the backlight. And the bottom one enables you to switch between Max and Emissivity mode.
Etekcity Lasergrip 1022D allows you to measure the temperature of hot surfaces from distance without even sacrificing the precision. This thermometer has a distance spot ratio of 12:1 which is pretty awesome. The distance between an object and the thermometer shouldn’t be more than 36cm if you want to get the most accurate results.
The best thing about this infrared thermometer is that it comes with the built-in targeting laser that shows which part of the surface is being measured. So, if you’re willing to measure the temperature of an object from different areas, it can be an incredible option for you. It can measure between minus 50 degrees Celsius to 550 degrees Celsius.
We tested the thermometer in different conditions to establish its accuracy.
First, we tested it on a pan of boiling water. It recorded the temperature between 101 to 104. It proves the theory boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsius.
Then we tested the thermometer on different food items in our refrigerator. The temperature of the recently placed items was different from the ones that were already in the refrigerator.
We didn’t just stop there and we decided to test it on an electrical stove.
The thermometer kept updating the live reading on the LCD display as the temperature increased.Now, here comes the most interesting part of the testing process. The user manual says that the thermometer cannot measure the temperature of an object behind the glass. But we didn’t face any problem when we used it under these circumstances. In fact, it provided us with pretty accurate results.
We tested this thermometer on an aquarium. First, we measured the temperature from behind the glass and then we measured the temperature of the water from the top. And we didn’t experience any difference in the results.Probably the manufacturers wanted to be on the safer side. However, if you’re willing to measure the temperature of an object behind the glass, you can absolutely do that.
The infrared thermometer comes with a 9V rechargeable battery that offers a great experience. The thermometer automatically turns off when it’s not in use. It means you can use it for hours after a full recharge. Also, the low battery indicator immediately alerts the user when the battery is running low.
Etekcity Lasergrip 1022D Infrared Thermometer is an affordable and easy-to-use thermometer you can use to measure the temperature of different objects. You can now measure the temperature of food items, industrial objects, and electrical equipment from a distance.
