I have an EC-770 for two years. Works fine and have all features needed to work with polishing such average, memory and lots of record readings. Just always give attention to the correct calibration, independing on the gauge you have.

I have this, used it once pretty accurate. Went to use it over the weekend batteries have leaked and now will not power up.

Any help, advise anyone?

If you can take it apart and clean it, you might be able to revive it. Sometimes you just need to get rid of the corrosion off the terminals. It depends how and where to the batteries have leaked. If there's a circuit board that's been exposed to the electrolyte it could be knackered I'm afraid.

Thank you, will give this a go as I read on the web to spray contact cleaner all over and let it dry out completely.

Hi Russ
I’m in the market for a decent PTG but not a full time detailers type. What is this one like? Any good for the money?

I'd recommend the paint detective.
As an amateur, it tells me what I need to know (the clearcoat thickness) and for 200£, I didn't have to sell any of my organs to afford it
