Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless)

Introduction

Introduction Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless)
 
Not so long ago we were asked by Scythe to review their Kama Thermo digital thermometer, and it performed more than admirably by earning itself a 'Recommended' award for its accuracy and very attractive price. This time around the Scythe Kama Thermo has received an update in form as well as by name.
 
The Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless) boasts features such as portability, a 2-way power source and non-contact temperature measuring method (wireless). The older Kama Thermo used a thermal probe to measure temperatures; the new wireless version dumps the probe in favour of an infra-red sensor.
 
So without further ado let's take a look at the Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless) specifications.

I dont really like the idea that you have to point it at the thing you would like to measure the temperature of. I would still buy the old one over the new one because of three reasons;

- Size.

- Ability to mod it into your case.

- (Probably) More accurate temperature readings.

Good review though, and a good idea of a product. Reps for you!

Yeah I agree. The older wired version had a lot more uses as far as measuring temps within your chassis, and the older Kama Thermo was able to be installed relatively easily. The new wireless version does away with all that and merely becomes a hand held digital thermometer. Thanks for the feedback

Good review mate. I've got an Infrared thermo at home that I paid quite a few quid for but tbh its cr@p. Type of surface and distance from it totally skews the results. Wired ftw!
