I have had the Wixey (which was great) and the Beall which has an extra decimal position. This lets the Beall tell you if you are at 49.58 degrees versus 49.6 degrees if that is important to your use. When the Wixey died I bought another Beall and now have one of the old and one of the newer versions. The newer version has magnets on an additional side (3 sides instead of 2) and is of a smaller form factor. Still not as compact as the Wixey but heavier in weight and they both use a standard 9 volt battery.
