      Hi Peter, Im thinking of ordering This exciting design myself. Did you get the CD Design short kit, and if so, please tell me what is included, and what is the quality like?  Mike.

      I have one of the cheap orange ones as per DaveH's link above. It works fine, however I found the lithium button battery didn't last very long and was frequently flat when I arrived at a slope. It was not easy to replace at the slope. I have therefore soldered a lead directly to the internal button battery contacts and now use an external AAA size four cell Rx battery and of course the indispensable bits of velcro. I disconnect the battery when storing. Now I'm never short of a battery and could charge from the car if necessary. The slightly higher nominal voltage does not effect the meter readings. Cheers, John
