This non-contact infrared thermometer makes it a breeze to take quick and accurate surface temperature readings without getting too close for comfort. Laser sighting ensures that you're pointing at the right spot: Simply pull the trigger and line up the laser dot where you want to measure the temperature. The temp gun also has adjustable emissivity compensation for measuring the surface temp of more or less radiant objects.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

Works as advertised and easy to use. Have used it to check heat sink temperature in a electronic load design.
It's quick, has nice settings, comes with the required 9V battery, and has several settings. Fun to point at random things to measure their temperature.
The laser can be turned on/off, which I think is a really useful feature.
I've wanted one of these for a long time, but all of them I've come across had too wide a field of view, weren't very accurate, or had fixed emissivity. This one fills all my requirements, and the price is good. Highly recommended.
