Differences between Braun ThermoScan 3, 5, 6 and 7For the comparison, let's just look at each device on its own and highlight the special features.
Braun ThermoScan 3The oldest device is the Braun ThermoScan 3, which also makes it the cheapest in terms of price, as you can see in the ThermoScan 3 deals.
The equipment is limited here to the essentials. For this, however, it also offers an advantage. The measuring time is very low with a few seconds. The newer devices must calculate even more, which leads to a longer measurement time.
Braun ThermoScan 5The successor model is the ThermoScan 5. Here you also get a preheated measuring tip and a positioning system. This makes the measurement more error-free, but extends it to up to 5 seconds.
Braun ThermoScan 6The Braun ThermoScan 6 is newer than the ThermoScan 7. However, it is a scaled-down version of the ThermoScan 7 and like an intermediate stage between the ThermoScan 5 and ThermoScan 7.
You have to do without the Age Precision technology here. In addition, you get only one instead of 9 memory locations for the last measurements.
However, the Braun ThermoScan 6 is also equipped with an illuminated display and a preheated tip. You even get a colored classification of the measurement temperature as well. However, this is independent of the age, which makes the Age Precision technology.
Braun ThermoScan 7The Braun ThermoScan 7 offers everything that the ThermoScan 5 and ThermoScan 6 have. Thus you have also with the ThermoScan 7 a preheated measuring tip as well as a positioning system.
In addition, however, the ThermoScan 7 still offers you the Age Precision technology, night light and a
color-coded FeverInsight display.
The night light needs no further explanation. It only illuminates the display of the ThermoScan 7, so you can read the temperature at night with children and have to turn on the light.
What is the Age Precision technology?The technology makes it easier for you to classify whether it is an elevated temperature or already a fever. The classification depends on the age of the person. Thus the Age Precision technology facilitates you directly by display, whether action is required. The result is displayed via the color-coded FeverInsight display..
Which Braun ThermoScan should you buy?If you're buying new, I'd recommend the Braun ThermoScan 7*. With it you get most of the features and have a very comfortable condition. The price is only slightly higher than for the ThermoScan 6.
If you want to save a little you are also well served with the ThermoScan 5. In contrast to the ThermoScan 6, the price of offers for the ThermoScan 5* is really cheaper. Here you do without the lighting as well as the Age Precision technology, which gives you the temperature directly on the device eingestuft.
The ThermoScan 3* is still available for purchase. However, I would not recommend this device if you are buying new, as the ThermoScan 5* is more accurate. If you have a ThermoScan 3, it may also be worth switching.
A change from the ThermoScan 5 to the ThermoScan 7 is not absolutely necessary. Unlike a new purchase, you must then pay a second time a relatively high price.
