    They are surprisingly accurate and very easy to read with nice big digits. I use 2 at a time to ensure consistency of readings. They are not waterproof but I've accidently gotten them wet, and even dropped them where they've broken apart and put them back together again. Still work! I've also never changed the batteries yet and they are used pretty much every day.

    I love having the redundancy of 4, and have often needed to use them all when I've got fish in bowls or the Intex. Great for ensuring acclimatisation when transferring fish.

    I've now got an Oase Proficlear that gives me a constant 2 digit temp reading in my filter house, and these aquarium thermos have been in line with that without fault.

    Can't knock 'em for price and versatility.

    Surely shouldn't matter on mass volume tho . They are all pretty much the same i got a cheap one off ebay and a expensive aqua one from lfs and couldn't tell the difference

    Water volume makes no difference. You just dangle the sensor in the water! Mine work in a 10L bucket, 100L bowl, 1600L Intex and my 11440L pond Winter Polycarbonate covers for a Wooden Sleeper Pond

    I have the same ones as koize. Cheap as chips.
    I use 2 in the grow on. And one on my 5000
    Gallon pond.
    And have 3 spare. Ready to replace. When they pack up.
    Used them for 6 years now. I just replace them every year. Even if there still working or not. When I change my UV bulbs.
