  • At the most inopportune moment batteries can sit down;

    will not give a reliable result. Some manufacturers themselves
    indicate that you should pay attention to additional factors:

Controversial issues

The controversial issues include the time taken to measure the temperature,
the term of operation and cost nipple thermometers. We will consider them

  1. Manufacturers promise fast reliable results within
    sixty seconds. However, the same instructions indicate that
    нормальное время измерения — около five minutes.
  2. The warranty is valid for two to five years, then the instrument
    may become inoperative. The battery must last for three
    years, however the guarantee does not extend to it. Replace
    you can’t do it yourself Withчём многие термометры-соски капризные:
    afraid of direct sunlight and high humidity, not to mention
    about bumps and falls.
  3. The cost of nipple thermometers varies from 350 to 1,500 rubles.
    The average cost is about 500 rubles. When compared with the usual
    a mercury thermometer, the price of which does not exceed one hundred rubles,
    it turns out expensive. However, if the amount is divided by a couple of years
    operation, the price no longer seems high.
  4. Another controversial point is the presence of a sound signal. For
    parents signal is a positive phenomenon, for a small child he
    may come as a surprise. The squeak of the device can disturb the baby
    во время процедуры измерения temperature
