Whats more important OSD feature - MAH or Voltage

Hello,

Trying to decide on what OSD to get. Some only seem to do Voltage (iOSD mini) while others do voltage and mAh (Ez OSD) Wondering what you all prefer.

iOSD mini Pros
uses NAZA GPS
cheaper
simple to wire

Cons
No current sensor
No mAh display.
No RSSI

Ez OSD pros
lots of features and display options.

Cons
More money
Has a second GPS

Worried about interference with having 2 GPS the FPV Video transmitter and receiver/transmitter signals all so close together.

Open to other OSDs. These two seems to be the most popular.

Let me know what your thoughts are or if you have a suggestion for another brand OSD.

Thanks,
DaGriff

I'd prefer voltage over mAh, but, if I can then both, EzOSD mAh I have found to be very accurate and you get voltage as well, I have been using a couple of these for years and they are very reliable, I also like the Skylark tiny osd and the Cyclops Storm. No problem with 2 GPS antennas so long as they can both "see" the sky.

5.8 video will not interfere with GPS.

I would get the one with MAH and rssi.
