Car Mechanics (UK) - - Product Test -

De­spite be­ing priced con­sid­er­ably higher than the Kennedy unit, the Sealey VS0274’S cas­ing ap­pears to be ex­actly the same, aside from slightly dif­fer­ent printed graph­ics, al­though we were un­able to as­cer­tain whether or not the in­ter­nal parts were iden­ti­cal. We found sev­eral re­tail­ers sell­ing the VS0274 for a sim­i­lar price to the Kennedy, which is why we have not pe­nalised it too much for the high RRP.

As with the Kennedy tester, we pre­ferred the ad­di­tional LEDS over the plainer traf­fi­clight al­ter­na­tives and the re­sults recorded be­tween them were very sim­i­lar. The main dif­fer­ence was that the Sealey il­lu­mi­nated all of its LEDS con­sis­tently when con­fronted with our sam­ple fluid with the low­est boil­ing point and we judged this su­pe­rior cal­i­bra­tion as jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for it earn­ing sec­ond place.
