CANNOT FIND REPLACEMENT BATTERY ANYWHERE!!!

Well, it's really stupid but it's true. I paid $16 for this thing, and no pharmacy I have been to carries the replacement batteries. So now I Have to WASTE MORE MONEY just because of the stupid battery and the poor logic of Rite Aid corporation, Wallgreens, Walmart, and CVS - every one of these stores carries this model thermometer but no batteries.

No, I don't recommend this product

love this thermometer

It's fast and easy to use, beeps when it is done and stores 1 temp in memory. The temp indicator lights are great for sitters or dads that don't know which temps are normal. It has a great battery life. I use mine daily for BBT charting, and on my husband and children when they are ill. The only drawback is that it is sometimes difficult to find a replacement battery.

Yes, I recommend this product
