Link for the smartphone version: ITM & Amazon USB-C iOS

I don't have a TG165 to compare to, but, I do have the FLIR One Pro USB-C version.

The FLIR Pro has a resolution of 160 × 120 vs. 80 x 60 of the TG165. Technically, this means a sharper thermal image with a higher resolution. Both are considered low when compared to professional models, which come with a price tag to match.
One of the biggest difference with the FLIR One is that it does have a relatively low resolution camera that blends the image with thermals, which does enhance the thermal imaging somewhat. There is some parallax error to account for, as the cameras are located slightly apart.

One major flaw with the smartphone version is with every new Android version, 7.0 or 8.0, etc., it breaks the functionality of the FLIR One app rendering the device useless (has been fixed recently, annoying never the less). When that happens you will need to use an older device, different FLIR app, or a third party app, all of which works.

I would love to use one of these, but it’s hard to justify the price for someone who would use it so rarely.

Is there a place where you could rent one of these? I admit I haven’t even checked Home Depot.

The FLIR TG165 is more than often at that price at your local CT store. If this is historical, then free coffee at MCD is EPIC!
