'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Get up to 32% off a handy thermal camera for your phone in this Cyber Monday deal

You can do all kinds of things with an InfiRay P2 Pro thermal camera, and right now you can get one for a steal.

What's the Cyber Monday deal?

The InfiRay P2 Pro for iPhone is 32% off on Amazon, and the InfiRay P2 Pro for Android is 27% off on Amazon, plus there's an exclusive 5% off coupon (use ZDNETBF5 at checkout). 

Why this deal is ZDNET-recommended

Not sure why you'd need a thermal camera? 

Also: Best Cyber Monday deals: Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and more

I could rattle off dozens of good reasons, but here are a few uses I've been putting mine to just recently:

  • Finding overheating electrical components (faulty components usually run hotter).
  • Diagnose all sorts of HVAC problems, from windows that leak heat, to radiators that aren't warming up properly, and AC units that aren't cooling.
  • Uncovering dangerously overheating rechargeable batteries.
  • Finding radiator pipes underneath floorboards.
  • Spotting problems with cooling systems on desktop and laptop systems.
  • Spot binding brakes on cars.

Don't let the tiny size and weight of the P2 Pro fool you. It might measure only 27 × 18 × 9.8 mm and weigh a mere 9 grams, but it can read temperatures in the range of -20 °C to 550 °C with an accuracy of ±2 °C. 

Along with the tiny thermal camera, the kit includes a magnetic snap-on macro lens that allows the camera to be brought super close to the item being examined.

While you can buy Android smartphones with built-in thermal cameras, no such iPhone exists. 

However, for $239 for the InfiRay P2 Pro for iPhone and $219 for the InfiRay P2 Pro for Android you can add this really useful superpower to your smartphone. Plus you can get an extra 5% using the exclusive ZDNET coupon code of ZDNETBF5.
