    I'll say one thing, whether you like the display as is or not, you certainly have to be impressed with the customer service. I have the accu scale also and it is awesome.

    I'll suggest this feature to Jim for the next BluVac iOS/Android app update.

    now you want a micron gauge with a pressure gauge built in???????
    Sorry i was not clear enough, I was looking for a no frills accurate pressure only gauge with display with boiling point for checking superheat and subcooling on maintence visits. We are looking to gear up avout 60 tech's with this. We ordered an analog glycerin filled gauge which has a descent scale for low pressure and descent high pressure along with a short hose, coupling and 45deg adaptor which was in the $115 price point. Looking for a comperable gauge under the $99 range. I am trying to reduce the loss of 2-3oz? Per yr of charge when performing maintence. Disclaimer I have the fieldpiece wireless and the pressure gauge is similar in size and function to what I would like to see but with a digital display. I get the whole imanifold thing but not interested for new guys and especially not interested in having to use bluetooth for them.

    One way that I've found to reduce loss is to use the Imperial quick connects. It seems whenever I don't use them, I get vapor spraying around for a second or so while I twist on the schrader nut. But those quick connects reduce the loss to zero, no more burnt fingers.

    The only potential issue is forgetting to take the coupler back off when you are done servicing the system.

    Refco tap gauge has been a good stubby for me. It has Bluetooth but I don't use it much. I got the kit with the wireless temp clamps but they were a bust. I don't recommend the temp clamps which belong in the garage. They sell the gauge individually as well as the female adapter that works real well as a low loss the way the depressor and Teflon seal are set up. Got saturation temps for too many refers to count.
