I use these:

0 56 " Blue Color LED Digital Voltmeter DC 0 300V Power Monitor Volt Panel Meter | eBay

I bought from a different seller but they're all the same. They're bright enough to read during the day and have an adjustable screw on the back so that you can match voltage with your DMM.

Had issues with Stinger Volt Meters lately, in my buddy's vehicle we start seeing some spots fading away lol, kinda low quality sh*t lol!

No suggestion, I have Taramp's Volt Meters along with Stinger but I couldn't make a decision myself,

Good Luck,

Kindest Regards.

Sparkfun has some tiny voltage meters. I got the green LED and they are bright. Can't comment on their longevity as I have only used them for a few months. Work awesome for the price. Mobile otherwise I would link you up.
