Anybody using an internal system that looks like this (on ebay for a little over $50)?
It looks to be too good to be true - internal sensors like the Orange, but supposedly replaceable standard batteries, and much cheaper.
But the details are sketchy: It doesn't even say what the diameter of the stems is. Would love to find someone who had tried this.

I ordered a set. I have had the Orange system for, uh, 2-3 years? and love it. However I have lately been getting a voltage alert for the front sensor, reading 2.5 volts. It resets and comes in again later on a long ride. In any case, since the Orange sensors are not available afaik, I ordered this to have if the Orange goes completely out. It says that it is powered by an included USB cable/ I don't know if that means constant powered or rechargeable. I have a dual USB outlet where the OEM cig lighter outlet was, so not a bit problem. We'll see.

Hi fredz43 - you said you ordered the set above. Have you received it? Can you confirm what the valve stem diameter is and that the sensors do indeed have replaceable batteries?
Thank you

I had to check the updates on ebay. Haven't received this yet and the latest estimated delivery is Jan 7. I'm glad that I am not in a hurry. :)
