Care & Use
Hints & Tips
• Keep the thermometer dry. Never immerse
it in water.
• Keep the thermometer away from direct
sunlight, dust and dirt.
• Handle the thermometer carefully. Do not
drop it.
• Use and store the thermometer in normal
temperature environments.
• Wipe the thermometer occasionally with a
damp cloth to keep it looking new.
• To prevent damage to the probe’s lens, do
not clean it with a paper towel or paper. Use
a cotton swab, dipped in rubbing alcohol, to
wipe it clean. Let it dry before use.

Protect the probe with the probe cap after

• To obtain a precise temperature measurement, first clean your ear of
all excessive earwax.

always take your temperature in the same ear.

• Do not use the thermometer if you suffer from ear diseases, or your
ear canal is wet.
• Keep portable phones away from the thermometer to prevent malfunction.
• If you have hair in your ear, the measured temperature may be lower
than your actual temperature.
• If the following conditions occur, we recommend you take your temperature at least three times and use the highest reading.
• Infants under three months old.
• Children under three years old who have a compromised
immune system.
• This is your first time using the thermometer. Practice until you
get accurate and consistent readings.
