Volt meter recommendations

Looking for recommendations on Volt meters. What brand and where is best place to find at a good price? Would appreciate your help. I saw the thread on volt meters ...couldn't discern a particular model/brand. Then again...I'm Polish.

ebay has all sorts of voltmeters, just search motorcycle voltmeter. All my bikes (7) have 'em from ebay. I have a couple from China and they work just fine. And all are pretty accurate (+-.1-.2v) when compared with expensive multimeter.

This is the one that I bought. Seems to work just fine.
Made a shelf and it and the 12v adapter need a 11/8" hole.

When doing my search I couldn't discern any difference from the $8 and $80 ones though marine/bike units cost a bit more because of weatherproofing. I was finding better prices on Amazon with shipping. Still haven't pulled the trigger as its snowy and I likely won't be riding for 2 months.

I just installed this one from Amazon:

I ran the wires to my PC8 for power. Nice addition!
