Have you tried contacting them? I've replaced mine for free even after mine took a swim

Heck I think I'd rather have 2 javelin pro's to 1 classic.     All the javelins have the fridge magnet but it sure is nice.   When I'm cooking it sticks to my metal side table...so convenient.

I'm still trying to wrap my mind around why there are so many Thermapen cosmetic blemishes, demos, returns (open boxes), refurbs etc. at a higher price than a new Javelin Pro PX 1.

Can you specify the read time (in red) I am assuming that temps in the higher range say 300°+  will take significantly longer?

Specs:

• Use for the oven or grill for perfect food every time!

• Spring action instant food thermometer

• Thin tip for faster and more accurate temperatures

• One button easily changes from Fahrenheit to Celsius

• Temperature range: 32 °F to 392 °F
• Fast temperature readings 32 °F to 212 °F

• Unit turns ON/OFF automatically when the probe is pivoted
• Temperature will be displayed in a few seconds

• Quick action button opens the unit for temperature

• Probe flips out straight for readings then folds back closed for easy storage

• Instructions Included

• 1 AAA Battery included  

Any meat temp over 212º to me is insignificant as I am pretty sure it is done!

6-8 seconds per the manual.

No I'll try replacing the battery first.   I love the pro though.

Assuming here you've taken care regarding cleaning the tip not to expose the joint area.
You have to fiddle with the probe to get it to work. the first one I had to open and close a dozen or so times to get it to work and sometines squeeze on the battery compartment.
The second one was run over by a forklift, the third one would just completely stop working randomly. But what peeves me the most was trying to get off the battery cover to replace the batteries... Which were good anyhow. I ended up mashing up an expensive piece of equipment.
