Top 10 Digital Thermometers in India

How to choose a good digital thermometer

Every house in India needs a thermometer at some time or the other. With fever becoming a cause of concern because of new worries like Swine flu, Chikungunia and others, there should always be a thermometer int he house. If anyone has fever more a than a few days and if the fever is very high, then that person should be immediately checked by a doctor. Doing a affordable blood test to catch a problematic virus on time is much better than waiting and losing precious days while the person suffers from fever. This is especially important for infants, small children and elderly people.

Digital Thermometers are the best option today for checking body temperature and if someone has a fever. The glass thermometers with mercury inside them are slowly getting phased out due to potential danger from mercury, which is a poisonous substance.

A digital thermometer uses something known as a thermistor to measure the temperature. This component is an electrical resistor metal whose resistance to electricity increases with an increase in temperature. Depending on how much the resistance increases, the temperature is calculated and displayed in a small digital display on the thermometer.

Digital thermometers are mainly of two kinds, the digital stick thermometers and the non-contact infrared thermometer. In this article we will mainly discuss the digital stick thermometer as that is the more common one.

Digital stick thermometers are either hard tip or soft tip. The soft tip thermometers are more expensive and are also more convenient when using it on children. Digital Stick Thermometers are usually in the range of around 150 to 250 rupees, and are battery operated.

Digital Thermometers usually have the option of showing the temperature in degree Celsius or Fahrenheit. They can take anywhere from 30 seconds to 90 seconds to display the temperature. They are mercury free and unbreakable. They can be used in the mouth, arm pit or rectally, unless otherwise specified. Some soft tip thermometers cannot be used rectally so that must be carefully checked.

Digital Thermometers have a digital display and give out a beep when the temperature has been recorded. Some have additional features like a fever alarm with a special sound, low battery indicator and a few more expensive ones even give fever alarms according to age ranges.

What to look for in a digital thermometer

The features of the particular digital thermometer

The basic difference between digital thermometers are in the features, as all of them use the same technology. Some digital thermometers have a soft tip while some have a hard tip. Some digital thermometers have additional indicators like a beep to indicate the right spot, a beep when the thermometer has finished taking the temperature, or if the temperature indicates a fever at above 99.5 degrees centigrade.

How long the thermometer takes to take the temperature

This can be very important if you are taking the temperature of a child. They can rarely stay still for a long time, and if the digital thermometer takes 90 seconds to the take the temperature, you may not be able to use it at all. In such cases you should try to get a digital thermometer that take sonly 30 seconds to take the temperature. Of course if you go in for an infra-red thermometer the it will take only 2-3 seconds to take the temperature.

Does your digital thermometer have a back light

Sometimes you need to check the temperate of a child in the dark at night without waking up the child or disturbing the child, that’s when a digital thermometer with a back light is really useful. Especially with very small children and infants having a back-lit digital thermometer can be a blessing.
