    Yellow Jacket solar powered gages

    Has anyone used the yellow jacket solar gauges, or the Robinair digital gauges? Are they accurate, and can they take a beating? I'm looking for pros and cons to them and any information would be greatly appreciated. Or should I just blow some cash on the Feildpiece or Testos digitals?

    I tend to shy away from any plastic gauges for my manifolds..never fails that i end up breaking them...i like the gauges filled with glycol but havn't found any that are metal and 410 rated yet

    Craze, I'm the same way bud, always breaking stuff! Not on purpose, bad luck seems to follow me around.

    Digicool AK900. $300.00. SH and SC calculated in real time as the system changes. After you get used to it you will not want to service refrig systems without them.

    I'll be honest, its hard to resist a set of digital gauges with all the functions they have. I guess I'm a little old school when it come to my gauges, I'll look into the Digicools though. Thanks Comfortdoc!

    Well considering a week does not go by with out some body posting a few times that they had to rebuild the temp clamp, I would say there is.

    I have an SMAN 3 And a Testo 557 and I love the hell outa of 'em.

    I have never been able to save so much time before, taking SC and SH measurements. I Favor the SMAN 3.

    Why do you favor the sman3 if you dont mind me asking? I was looking into those and I like the durability, not sure if I would use it for evacuation, so I could probably go with the sman2.

    How did what happen? That gauge was brand new when I opened it up to snap those pictures.

    FWIW, they turned out to be junk.
