Running Oil Temp

I bought one of these.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/183101946301

Haven't tried it out yet, well its plugged in but haven't been out for a ride yet with it in. Anyone else got one and what temperature should I be seeing?

Hi - mine runs between 70 -80 degrees depending on whether one is sitting in traffic.
