Mabis Thermometers Are Not Accurate

A few months ago, I was feeling under the weather and my girlfriend went to pick up some medicine. While picking up a few different types of medication, she also bought a digital thermometer. We both had little hope for this inexpensive brand, but thought it wouldn't hurt to give it a try.

I tried this thermometer three different times after she brought it home. Each time I got a different reading. This wasn't a minor change from lets say 99.1 to 99.3 either. Each time I took my temperature I got a different reading that varied by a couple degrees.

Because of inaccuracy I simply cannot recommend this product. Digital thermometers may be easy to use, but they just aren't as accurate as traditional thermometers are.

Save yourself the money and go with another brand or look for a more traditional model instead.
