RE: Anyone know the chemicals in digital thermometers?



More on Geratherm.  They have a new digital thermometer that is solar powered and doesn't run on a button battery.  The product is called Solartherm and though solar powered, does work in the dark.  Their email is rgenterprises@msn.com. phone is 1-800-992-9497.

There are also Geratherm thermometers advertised as mercury-free.  The
primary constituents are Gallium, Indium and Tin.

Do not want to encourage hospitals to give out what may be as harmful as Hg
thermometers.
