    How well do these work? I've never seen anything like them before...

    They work great! Dip them in, press a button, and voila, temp and salinity! Love mine!

    Do they require calibration and if so how often do they need recalibrated?

    I found a thread on R2R that said they didn't need calibration at all. Something about powering it on and off zeros the unit. The very last comment on the 5 page thread makes mention of some crazy button sequence...

    It seems like the overall consensus is positive!

    Hmm very tempting. Do you know what the temp is accurate to +-?

    According to that R2R review the stated temp accuracy was +/- 1.5 degrees. And his personal tests on 3 tanks yielded a .0001 SG difference between his calibrated Milwaukee checker and the Ice Cap.

    Hmm. The thermoworks thermometer I was looking at is only about half that. Good to know the salinity sounds spot on. That’s probably much more important.
