While the most practical use of this thermometer gadget is its ability to measure surfaces temperatures of hazardous, hot, and hard to reach objects.

After doing a lot of web research on infrared thermometers. The Actron CP7875 has relatively the lowest price and rated accurate enough (+/- 2%). There are also other Pocket Thermometers that use laser but the downside for this type of device is you must keep it in a safe place out of the reach of your children. While the Infrared Thermometer like Actron is safer.

The size of the Actron CP7875 is smaller than you may have expected which is good, the length is less than four inches. It comes with CR2032 lithium watch battery installed. It's very easy to use with auto backlight. It also has accurate measurements and display the result quickly, it can read about two or three times per second and then display the current and highest temperature. When you release the button, the display will hold the temperature until the next time you press again or It shuts off after 15 seconds.

Cons: The slight downside of The Actron CP7875 digital infrared thermometers are the 1: 1 distance-to-spot ratio. It means to measure a small place or surface you should hold the Actron really close. Others have ratios of 6: 1 to 10: 1 meaning that if you want to measure a one inch circle you can measure it from the distance of six inches (6: 1) or ten inches (10: 1). The small button to switch Farenheit to Celcius or otherwise is too small and requires a pen, fork, or other small things to push it. If you plan to stick the measurement on Celcius or Farenheit only that will be no problem.

Pros: Very small, least expensive, easy to read backlit display, intuitive one-button operation. Battery life rated 20-25 hours of use.
