[Princess Auto] 1/2" drive Digital Torque Adapter - $44.99

The Titan brand digital torque adapter is up on sale. Would this + the 18.5" breaker bar for $15 be fine, or am I better off waiting for the $20 torque wrench to come around? Anybody had more than single use experiences with this adapter?

They work fine but it's personal preference which one you prefer. I find clicky torque wrenches more convenient as they can also ratchet.

I bought the $30 mastercrap torque adapter years ago and compared it against a lab calibrated torque meter. It was spot on and much more repeatable than a clicky torque wrench, but I seldom need anything that perfect. Nowadays, I mostly use it to check the calibration of my cheap torque wrenches. It's well worth the $30. Only complaint is that it uses a cr2032 battery. Some newer ones use an AA battery that last much longer.

Can this be attached to a power torque wrench? To swap winter tires at home, I usually use power tool to fasten till 80-90%, then finish with a click torque wrench. If I can view to torque from power tool, it would be convenient.

By power tool I would assume you mean impact gun. Do not use this on a impact gun, you can mess up the calibration of the tool.

I highly doubt you can safely do that.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
