How to replace the QuickCare's battery

The Kinsa QuickCare wireless stick thermometer uses one CR 2032 battery. 

We designed the Kinsa QuickCare to use the CR 2032 battery specifically because they’re small, reliable, cheap, and easy to find. If you have a choice of brands, we recommend Energizer or Panasonic, whichever you find cheaper.

CR 2032 batteries are typically available at pharmacies, grocery stores, and online at Amazon, Target, and Walmart. They’re usually sold in packs of 5 for around $5. 

To replace your QuickCare’s battery:

  1. With the edge of a coin, turn the back of your QuickCare counterclockwise until it pops off. 
  2. Tip your QuickCare to the side and the old battery should fall out.
  3. Insert the new battery, ensuring the larger, more reflective side with text is facing up.
  4. Replace the backing, and again use the edge of a coin to turn clockwise and secure the back of your QuickCare.
