Its been a couple of years but to the best of my recollection the Schumacher battery maintainers were under $30.00 each, I replaced my old ones with the Schumacher ones. the lithium jump starter/ power pack was $79.00. I actually have 5 of the battery maintainers always working in the garage and the shed. One on the house generator, the riding mower, the bike and one on each of the two scooters. I've never needed to use the power pack for myself other than charging my phone and action camera while on trips, but I have used it to jump someone else's car that was in need.how much?
Oh, a good quality tire gauge. One that's easy to pack away on the bike and easy to use - eg. has an angled head to get at those hard to reach rear tire valves.
Tire pressure gauge...Digital or stick type or dial?
Just curious what people like, I'm all digital, love the precision, the exact reading, my wife hates digital and always uses a stick type even though it's hard to read the exact pounds. I admit her's always works without batteries while mine has been dead a few times when I needed it. I never tried dial type on a bike but they seem a bit bulky and awkward to use on a bike.
My favorite is my FOBO TPMS that connects via bluetooth to my phone, no hands and knees work required and it's always watching.
Amen! Preach it, Brother. I have now tried 5 different gauges --2 digital, 2 stick and a dial -- and have yet to find anything really satisfactory.Oh, a good quality tire gauge.

Yeah I carry both the jump/power pack and the tire repair kit on the bike just in case. The only one I've had to use in a real world situation for myself was the tire plug kit on a rear flat tire. I have used the power pack to jump another vehicle that was in need in a store parking lot once, they were amazed that something that small could actually jump a vehicle.I like the idea of the jump pack, it would have saved me a real nuisance the day I left the trunk light on in my bike all day...
