Scubba which brakes are you planning on using? 1 that I know of already makes cable extenders...
Hopefully a set of Ausco's from you soon I know that Ausco makes the brake cable extenders for a couple bucks extra, (was looking online at them a little bit back,) but decided to go with the newer cables out by CC instead before the changeover. I got both for the right side/passenger side along with the tool to remove them. I'm putting them on hopefully this weekend along with the new meter if my back holds out and cleaning up my brakes, (they've been giving me trouble since I got the cart.)

Cables are often overlooked as a source of poor brake peddle response. New cables and adjusters fix 80% of all brake problems for me..... Good Luck.

I prefer to see an exact meter reading (number) vs a bar reading. Don't trust bar reading alone after all the neg posts Ive read on BGW. Also, bar meter cannot provide "under load" readings like DM can. With the DM, you can see state of charge and charge under load as well all the time you hit pedal to the metal. Its like having a hand held digital meter but instead a tiny one mounted nicely to the dash.

Do these work in "real time"?

Easy, sorry to hear about your rough day..... Get in the cart and go for a spin!

G, My Rep tells me this meter samples the pack 3 times per second... If that ain't real time... I don't know what is.
