If battery voltage drops for 2.7V or below, empty battery flashing symbol will appear.
When you see flashing battery symbol on the LCD it is time to change 3V battery. Just open the lid on the backside and change the battery, taking care on polarity. See for instructions if not sure how to install new battery.
This digital IR body temperature device has been designed for long time use. Its longevity is guaranteed for at least 100,000 takings.
Make sure to use it properly. Before taking, remove transparent protective cover on the top. This cover is protecting IR sensor, which is most fragile part of this device.

My review and opinion
I’m using this Rycom infrared thermometer for about a 2-3 months and it is quite good for my needs. Having 2 small kids already (one 6 yo, and one baby born on September the fourth) it is handy to check for temperature without disturbing baby while she is sleeping. Oldest daughter prefer this way reading body temperature also.
Gadget is working great, it is fast and precise. Still on the battery from original package. You can read Rycom thermometer manual for personal use.
In short way to tell – I’m quite happy with this IR thermometer.
If you looking for something like this, search for something in this price range (10-15$), which I think is a good buy.

Rycom thermometer presentation
The thermometer without contact has been developed by using the latest infrared technology. It allows temporal artery (TA) temperature to be taken at a distance of about 3-5cm away from the forehead. Precise, instantaneous and without contact, the thermometer is, up to now, the most suitable thermometer for no risk on temperature measurement. It has been demonstrated that this method of TA temperature measurement is more precise than the tympanic thermometry and better tolerated than rectal thermometry.
To change the battery make sure to choose the right model. This non-contact thermometer is using a CR2032 coin battery.
