    Hi all

    I have been looking at infrared thermometers all the reptile suppliers that I have looked at have them for sale for between $50 & $100 when I searched E-bay I found mechanical i/r thermometers that can read -50°c ~ 150°c for around $12 my question is will they still do the same job or should I get the I/r thermometer made by a reptile brand e.g reptile one

    Any advice would be much appreciated

    Just to clarify when I say mechanical I mean for use in checking pipe, engine temps by mechanics

    Yeah they are fine mate so long as the temperature range is what you are looking for.
    All the same thing
