Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner Thermometer

Press Sample

We purchased our first Exergen TemporalScanner thermometer in 2008.  Mister was just about five months old, and I was learning to cope with a baby who was unable to sweat and unable to tell me when he was too hot.  The Exergen quickly became an integral part of our “cooling bag” that went with us everywhere.  Over the last five years, we’ve become an Exergen family.  We had two Exergen’s and kept on in our diaper bag at all times, and the other in our linen closet.  When Exergen offered me the opportunity to review their all new Smart Glow TemporalScanner Thermometer, I couldn’t help but smile.  Of COURSE, I’ll do it!

Exergen side by side

As you can see, the two thermometers look about the same.  The new Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner Thermometer is an updated version of the Exergen’s that we already own.  This one has a backlit screen, though, so it is perfect for taking night time temperatures without fear of waking the beasts kidlets.

Check out this video demonstration of the new Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner Thermometer…



In addition to the backlit screen, this thermometer also has a silent mode!  Squeal.  Ooops, I mean, silent happy dance.  I can’t tell you how many times I successfully crept into a bedroom at night to take a temperature, only to have the beep wake the target.  Then I had to deal with a sick, tired, cranky child.  Sigh.

Other features include the ability to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius AND an eight temperature memory.  So, in the event you are sneakily trying to get temperatures in the dark on more than one child, you can swipe their foreheads and escape, knowing that the new Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner Thermometer has your numbers stored!

The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner Thermometer is a keeper, folks!  Incidentally, my husband, who’s wonderful editing skills came in handy for my video, is also a keeper!

By the way, the Exergen that we bought in 2008?  We still have it, and it still works like a charm!

I ❤ Exergen.

  1. I love my exergen thermometer! I reviewed mine years ago and it’s been working great since. Still on the original batteries too, luckily we haven’t needed it much!

    • Jennifer with Mister not sweating properly, my Exergen has gotten a workout! We’re on our third battery, but that’s not bad in five years!

  2. We have this one and it’s my fav. We’ve had it for a few years now, still works great! I LOVE your video by the way – that’s the best!

  3. Ok, all my fave bloggers are raving about their Exergens. I need to get one! I trust you all 🙂

  4. We also love our Exergen! Your video is cute too! Best of luck!

  5. This is great! I’m sure parents would appreciate the easy to use design.

  6. This is awesome, I love its functionality and the design!

  7. This thermometer sounds awesome. I just read a post from another blogger about this. So, it has definitely gotten my attention.

  8. We still have the one that we bought ten years ago and we use it frequently. I love this scanner.

  9. This is totally something that we need in my house! It would make it so much easier to take my baby’s temp when she is sick.

  10. We love our exergen too. It’s so nice to have a non invasive way to check temps, esp in the middle of the night.

    My husband has a habit of taking his temp a lot “just to see” when he has a cold.

    Like hourly.


  11. We have the same one and LOVE it.. it’s soo easy to use and always accurate. My daughter always gets low grade temps with her JA and this helps us keep track the simple way; thanks for a great review.. we love ours and couldn’t imagine being with a different thermometer.

  12. I would love to get one of these for my daughter who is having her first baby!

  13. We love this type of thermometer. It makes taking temperatures on wiggly toddlers so much easier.

  14. I must say that the fact it stores the temperature is a big perk to me! Also, that you can do it while they’re sleeping!

  15. We LOVE our exergen!!! I would be lost without it 🙂

  17. We have this one too and it definitely makes taking temps easier!

  18. I’m going ot have to pick one of these up!
