Categories > Gauges > Five Star Inc > 100V 100A DC Car Auto Digital Voltmeter Ammeter LED Amp Volt Meter 12V w/shunt

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Bad Design & NO Support
Pros: Good price
Cons: No Support, the Phone number listed is BAD.

No Documentation provided.

The electrical Design is BAD:

You have:
Red Power line (thin)
Black Power line (thin)
Black measure Common line (thick) and is CONNECTED to the Black power line on the PCB. (BLACKS are CONNECTED!!!!)
Red Voltage measure line (thick)
Yellow Amps measure line.

The instrument measure current by comparing the voltage from the Yellow to the Common (black) off of the current shunt.
So you need to connect the common black and yellow to the current shunt. And you need to supply power to the instrument (from the car).

However, if the current shunt is at a Voltage other than ground (like AUX Battery feed (12V)). You have just connect Ground to 12V (the 2 Black wires). SMOKE. I repaired the burned trace and keep working.

So the only way to use this thing is the following:

Have one end of the shunt connected to Ground and ground your loads through it (not practical in most applications.)

Power the meter with a separate battery (like 9V). Not the greatest plan but works.

Can make work but have to work around the common ground, and know that you need to.

Categories > Gauges > GENERIC > 52mm 2" Universal Car Plastic Heavy Duty Single Gauge Swivel Pod Mount Holder

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 didn't use
Pros: price, easy to use/mount
Cons: flimsy, questionable swivel
Other Thoughts: the pod sat higher than i needed, so i never used the product. it was cheap and what i expected for the price. i'm sure it would have worked fine, but the swivel is a simple ball/joint type. i'm sure after some time that would wear out, but i can't say for sure; just basing my opinion on past experience.

Categories > Gauges > ADD > ADD W1 Red Oil Breather Catch Tank Can

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Looks great.
Pros: Looks great and is a great size for putting under the hood. Not too big or too small. Love the site glass on the side. I don't get much blow by anyway but this will be great instead of guessing if there is any in the can. comes with different size fittings so application was easy.
Cons: Needs a better bracket for mounting. Maybe provide a couple "L" brackets that can be used for different applications. Needs to have a petcock on the bottom for draining. Odd size threads make it hard to find on so for now will have to drain by removing and pulling plug from bottom till I find one.
Other Thoughts: Overall, a great looking catch can. Went to manufacturer site to see what inside looks like and what kind of filtering material is used. Looks similar to many others.

Categories > Gauges > ADD > ADD MPH OBD Head Up Display HUD Speed Gauge Mph Water Temp, Rpm, Volt Gauge Mph

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Not worth it
Pros: Works great at night and the display on the window film that comes with it is ok. Cable install tucked away nice and can barely see it from the outside.
Cons: Have to apply film to use this. Will show ghosting on windshield if you don't. Also film is very cheap. Scratches easily during install. Can't read display during the day. Even with heaving tinting on windows. Does not display accurate speed or RPM,s. It is good till about 25 MPH than starts to lead speedometer and tachometer by 1 MPH for every ten you increase. At 65 MPH it says you are going 70. Not sure how this does this since it is attached to OBD so programming in HUD must be bad.
Other Thoughts: Only bought this as an experiment to see if I wanted to install one permanent in dashboard. so I got the info I needed. That's why I gave it two eggs and not one.
