ECPin is a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) device that allows your phone (after turn on Bluetooth) to scan for it and pair automatically.
Yes! ECPin can be connected to multiple mobile devices at once! You can literally make any family members/friends who have a ECTherm app to monitor the probe.
No. Food grade stainless steel casing and ceramic top can handle it with ease.
Yes! As long as the metal casing (electronics inside) of ECPin is inserted into meat of your choice then it is safe to withstand up to 212°F / 100°C. The exposed top part of ECPin is made of FDA and LFGB approved ceramic material. It can withstand at least 600°F / 315°C.
For one, super-capacitors can be charged and discharged almost indefinitely, but batteries have a limited life. Batteries lose their capacity gradually over their lifetime. Super-capacitors don’t.
How come I had the probe fully charged the night before but the next day it won’t power up? Is the battery defective?
ECPin uses super-capacitor as power source. Unlike typical batteries, a ECPin’s super-capacitor standby power will be discharged in about 6 hours. Therefore it is recommended to charge ECPin before use.
Make sure you have turned on the sound setting of your mobile phone.
The sensor of ECPIN is designated to work under 100’C. However, if ECPIN is inserted into food, it can withstand a cooking temperature up to 300’C.
