The ThermoPro TP-30 outperforms the Etekcity Lasergrip 1080 in all three major assessments. According to our benchmark, the Etekcity receives a score of 4.1 out of 10, while the ThermoPro TP-30 scores a higher 6.3. The Etekcity's low score can be attributed to its failure in our hot test with oil.

When it comes to design, the Etekcity Lasergrip 1080 scores 7.3, while the ThermoPro TP-30 slightly surpasses it with a score of 7.9. This is primarily due to the TP-30's sturdier housing and a noticeably brighter laser emitter compared to the Etekcity.

In terms of usability, the ThermoPro TP-30 offers an advantage with three measurement modes, whereas the Etekcity Lasergrip 1080 only provides two.

Considering these factors, if you choose between the two, the ThermoPro TP-30 would be a decent upgrade from the Etekcity Lasergrip 1080. However, in this price range, better models offer superior performance, build quality, and ease of use. You can find more details in our database.
