Klein Thermal Imager TI 220
I tested the new Klein Thermal Imager and it's a real dandy. You plug it into a smartphone and the phone's screen allows you to see the thermal image.
I've tried no less than three others and this one is:
- easier to use
- takes fantastic clear infrared photos
- is extremely compact
This is a tool that you can share with family members so you can discover all sorts of heat loss and heat gain leaks in your home or small business.

I took a photo outside my home of a window AC unit. The sun was shining on it and bouncing the infrared rays from the top of the AC unit to the bottom rail of the window sash. Look at how hot the sash is compared to the other parts of the sash frame. The right side of the sash frame is bright red because the sun is hitting it at almost a 90-degree angle.
I took a photo trying to take the temperature of the Lake Winnisquam water down from my deck. It's ACCURATE at 200 yards away! Amazing. 80.2 F
My Ford F-250 Super Duty 4x4 was sitting in the sun for about two hours. It was mid-morning. Look how HOT the tire is. It's black rubber and I had not been out driving. That's just heat absorption from the sun's infrared rays! Look at how HOT the hood is. YEOUUUCH! 150 F
This is the handy little case you get. The imager and the two spare USB connectors fit inside.
