recommendation for an ear thermometer needed

Can anyone recommend an ear thermometer for me? I currently have a forehead scanning one from TommyTippee that I hate and which gives me different readings and error codes all the time.
DS (7 mo) has been okay with oral thermometers but the sicker he is, the less happy he is with my shoving something (other than my boob) in his mouth.
So, I'd like to find a reliable ear thermometer that doesn't need disposable filters. Does such a thing exist? I can just see DS waking in the middle of the night feeling hot and my going to get the thermometer and realising that we are out of the filters Would rather avoid that situation if possible!
thanks

braun thermoscan and reuse the filters - it's the same child so it doesn't matter and they work for quite a lot of uses.

I've got the brother max 3 in 1 thermometer. Can use it in the ear (no filters needed - just the occasional wipe with anti-bac spray) or on the forehead and it can be used as a room thermometer too.
It was perfect when we went on holiday. Can't recommend enough.

I had the Braun one - very good.
