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.
