Here is my update.
Cheap is cheap so I bought 5 of the Chinese made 4 wheel TPMS systems (less than $20), and 1 of the Chinese made RV / Truck 6 wheel TPMS system (less than $50) back in Jan 2021.
After 3 months.
4 wheel TPMS
- working great so far as intended
- screen hard to read during the day
- solar is all I have needed so I never plug in
- I did have a battery go out in Right Rear of one vehicle
But it may have been me? It was giving me a warning based on my low temp setting, but tire was really not to low; so I did not get around to air it up until alter. It may have beeped the battery down? I will lower the setting because at the time, I may have been thinking I was to see what the alarm would do before it was a real problem/
6 wheel TPMS
-easy setup and configuration (but no where to easily mount due to solar panel on the back) The above car units lie flat with display forward.
-easily loses connections with sensors; so the disconnections alarms are kind of frequent. You have to stop take sensor off and put back on and it works fine again
Not sure why but it seems to be easily interfered with I have had big truck pull up next to me and they all disconnect. Over time if you do nothing they will reconnect by themselves.
But all in all they work as intended for the price. At the end of the day, it is a lot easier for me to keep all 6 tires right at 82 psi. I use solar only and never use the usb cord.
Never had a true alarm condition related to tires
Add Updated Edit.
Below is the even cheaper batteries I purchased. The name Toshiba does help a little LOLOL
