I bought a Walgreens one as a back up but I've been using one from WalMart. The battery seems to be getting low and this is only my 4th cycle using it. The beep is starting to sound weird and sickly. I guess I need to get a different back up!
I have the BD Basal Digital Thermometer by BECTON DICKENSON, and it was not so cheap, and I've only been using it for two months or so. I bought it on line because the Rite Aid by my house did not carry them and neither did the medical supply store.
Filiadeluna, I don't understand what you mean by "flashing PAST the first temp."
Also, what are the signs of a dying battery - could that be what's going on with my muleheaded thermometer?
Yeah, I don't trust the Walgreens ones (and I used to work there ).
Well, on my thermometer I have to hold down the button *before* I turn it on. It flashes one temp VERY quickly (you almost miss it), and that's the saved temp, the one you took. Immediately afterwards it flashes 97.70 (the default thermometer temp). Lastly, it flashes to "LOW" or whatever, which means it's ready for you to take a new temp. I messed up some of my temps in the middle of the cycle b/c I thought they were 97.70 and didn't know you had to hold it down *before* turning it on.
My thermometer was only $6.99.
