The easiest to install is the Zeva. I have an Orion Jr. over 3 yrs old. You will a more thorough electrical knowldge to install the Orion Jr and it is a lot more expensive than the Zeva. On the other hand, having access to a great vendor in Ewert Energy Systems in the US, which designs and builds them is very handy. Had mine installed for over three yrs and performance has been excellent. I see they have a new WiFi connection. For quick check of the pack, I use my Android phone and the Torque App with an OBD2 bluetooth connection. Programming is done with a laptop and their software and serial cable.

I have zero experience with the Orion Jr. My install was with the ZEVA. As for me, I've received great support from Ian in Australia. Time differences are the only wait, via email, but I found that no problem.

Others here that use the ZEVA have apparently had good results. One member had his monitor malfunction and discovered it was going to cost about half the price of a new monitor to send it back. Ian at ZEVA sent him a new one.....free....to cover the warranty.

Can't beat that for customer service!! (Not saying that the Orion Jr. is not customer friendly.....just saying what ZEVA did.)
