Checktemp Pocket Thermometer
Love this thermometer!
I am extremely pleased with this product. It is most useful when refilling a tank after a water change. Whether you are filling buckets or using a hose, just stick the tip of this thermometer in the bucket or the stream of water and you get an instant reading. Seems to be quite accurate too. No more waiting for a wired digital probe to register the water temp. Because this product displays the temperature instantaneously, you can quickly adjust the water temp from the tap. Very happy with this product.

Does its job
Thermometer reads 2 deg higher than the thermometers in the tanks. Having a calibration tag with the checktemp gives me confidence that the data I have for the tanks is accurate.

Great Little Device
This is a very easy to use and extremely accurate thermometer. It reads quickly (almost instantly), and sensitive enough to determine tenth--of-a-degree differences.
The probe can go right in the water, but the part with the display is NOT waterproof. However, I've now dropped it in the tank twice, and each time thought it was ruined (displayed bizarre, constantly changing, numbers on the screen). But taking out the battery, giving it a good shake, and letting it sit overnight in a zip-loc bag of uncooked rice has brought it right back to normal each time. So if you do drop it in (you probably will, at some point), at least there's an easy fix!

Highly Accurate / Simple to use
The description doesn't do justice for this product. It is another quality product from Hanna Instruments. According to the literature, there are 4 versions. The highest version is the F/N (Fahrenheit w/ Calibration Certificate.. This is what I received.
Thank you Drs. F&S for carrying such a product.
I checked the accuracy with a high precision manual thermometer. What good would it be if it wasn't accurate? As I expected, it checked out dead-on.
