I quickly became annoyed with "error" shots so I ended up buying two to greatly increase odds of a reading. I use the cheapie F1 Crony's b/c they work, are compact, can be sent back for repair of you shoot it :o, and I have no need for any other bells and whistle bs. The only added features I want is a remote reset button which is easily made, and an easy reliable light for shooting indoors. Haven't made the easy light yet, still using the complicated incandescent 25W bulbs w/ extension cords and having to space them from the diffusers w/ wood and duct tape so they won't get burnt. It's just too far back burner on my list of stuff to mod. So fyi that's what I use and what I wish I had.

I just went to a hardware store and grabbed 2, 24 LED pod lights, Glued a big metal washer to the bottom of the diffusers and stuck these LED Lights on. Number of ERR1/EE2 was lessened big time. How I shot my first ALPHA. was getting EER messages, so I was trying to shoot pellets as close to the sensors as I could.

Finally decided on the Caldwell Precision "kit", with the LED lights built into the diffusers, tri-pod and patch chord to phone/tablet. Had to wait for Amazon.ca to re-stock, but got it for $170 Canadian. Put 120 shots through it today, while testing the mods I made on my QB Chief, only 1 error. The app (for Android Tablet in my case) is basic, but functional and the data can easily be exported for making reports. So far 2 thumbs up.

I seconded as this setup is very convenient and super easy to use with very low cost!

You don't nees bulb changes ( the LED will last for long long time), you don't have wires, powercords and you don't nees the power outlet. 3 AAA battery just likely to make the LED light to turn on forever...
