Pros and Cons of Thermapen?

benjamin831 | Jul 30, 2014 12:29 PM

Hi guys,

So we all know that the Thermapen is the king of thermometers right now. But it's really damn expensive. I have one too but I personally think it's far too expensive for what it is. I can source high quality thermocouple sensors and components for much less!

I was thinking about making a product that could rival the Thermapen and offer it much less. Maybe throw it up on kickstarter or something to get some funding.

What do you guys NOT like about the Thermapen? I personally I think it should come with a backlight if they're charging us 90 bucks for one. This could really help me draw up a list of features to include.

Would love to hear some thoughts.
