Would Not Recomment

Bought this the other day because of the Vicks name. In a 10 minute period my temp went from 98.8 - 99.9 - 98.6 - 99.6. Which temp is right. Sorry I threw the package away or I would return it. Not worth the money it costs.

Easy to Use But Came with Lo Battery

I purchased this for my 93 year old mom on sale for about $8.99. Had Lo battery right away. While it still works, I ordered a new battery for $2.49 online. Mom couldn't have done that nor would she have been able to find one locally. It doesn't take much to make what should be a great product into an average or mediocre one.

Error every time

Every time I use it it gives me an error. I try taking out the battery for a few minutes and putting it back in, but even then it's just a luck of the draw if it will work the next time.
