The EZ gauge has several advantages over the competitors, first the EZ gauge is environmentally freindly gauge by using AA alkaline batteries. Some competitors use NiCad batteries which are an enviromental hazard due to the toxicity of cadmium which, while slightly less than lead, is more dangerous than lead since cadmium easily forms soluble compounds whereas lead is relatively inert.

Second, NiCad replacement packs from manufacturers of this type of equipment cost about $160.00 when the packs are no longer serviceable. This amount of money would purchase about forty sets of alkakline batteries for the EZ gauge and last a total of about 40 years.

Third, there is no waiting time involved in charging the EZ gauge and no chargers to be lost, damaged or purchased. A new set of alkaline batteries may be purchased in many retail stores and replaced in less than 5 minutes.
