Differences between Braun ThermoScan 3, 5 and 7For comparison purposes, we simply look at each device individually and highlight the special features.
Brown ThermoScan 3The oldest device is the Braun ThermoScan 3, therewith it is also the cheapest in price, as you can see in the ThemoScan 3 offers.
The equipment here is limited to the essential. But therefore it also offers an advantage. The measuring time is with a few seconds very short. The newer devices have to calculate even more, which leads to a longer measuring time.
Brown ThermoScan 5The successor model is the ThemoScan 5, where you get additionally a preheated measuring tip and a positioning system. With this the measurement is more error-free, but it extends up to 5 seconds.
Brown ThermoScan 7The Braun ThermoScan 7 offers everything that the ThermoScan 5 has. Therewith, you also have a preheated measuring tip as also a positioning system in the ThermoScan 7.
Additionally, the ThemoScan 7 offers you the Age Precision technology, night light and a
color-coded FeverInsight display.
The night light does not need to be explained further. It simply illuminates the ThermoScan 7 display, so you can read the temperature and turn on the light even at night when you have children.
What is the Age Precision technology?The technology makes it easier for you to classify whether you have an elevated temperature or already have a fever. The classification depends on the age of the person. So Age Precision technology makes it easier for you to decide whether you need to take action. The result is shown on the colour-coded FeverInsight display.
Which Braun ThermoScan should you buy?For a new purchase I would recommend the Braun ThemoScan 7*. With it you get most of the features and have a very comfortable condition.
If you want to save some money you are also well served with the ThermoScan 5. However, there are not many offers for the ThemoScan 5* left, because it is a discontinued model. Here you do without the lighting as well as the Age Precision technology, which classifies the temperature directly at the device.
The ThemoScan 3* is even harder to get. I would not recommend this device for a new purchase, as the ThemoScan 5* is more accurate. If you own a ThermoScan 3, a change can be worthwhile.
A change from ThemoScan 5 to ThemoScan 7 is not absolutely necessary. Unlike buying a new one you will have to pay a relatively high price a second time.
