I have an Extech. Mine came certified/calibrated, though it is long expired.

That looks similar to the one the putz Facilities guy stuck at my head and didn’t remove when I asked him to.

It busted into several pieces when I did a takeaway & threw it agains the wall...

And if they still want to argue stick it under their tongue for a second opinion.

Why do you need it if you know the temperature is -40? :scratchhead:

We're testing safety valves at -40°F. So I need to know when the valves reach that temperature, because we test them while cold. We're keeping them in a cooler w/ dry ice, which is -109°F. We need to test them before they get that cold. We also test them at +320°F.

Is that -40° Fahrenheit or Celsius? :D

Really confidence inspiring brand. How do you know the readout is not a Fluke?

We have a freezer at work that maintains -80 f

We also have liquid nitrogen 

and ovens that will reach 2200 f

I have a crappy version of one of those that someone gave me because they thought I could use it for brewing. It's not very useful for that, so it's just been sitting in my brewing stuff for forever.

The other day I got the brain fart to try and use it for something, so I dragged it out. To my surprise, I had actually remembered to unplug the battery (9volt) last time I was playing with it. To my even bigger surprise, it still worked.

I own a competitor model.  I never use it.  I would have sold it to you dirt cheap.  Probably the cost of postage and a cup of coffee.
