I am not sure such a thing exists. I use a dye indicator system because it is cheap, simple and reliable.

Do you need just pH or do you need EC also? I Don't have one, but I'm looking at a Hannah handheld. THey make a pH meter and a combo.

Cheaper solution than a good pH meter, and in my experience more than accurate enough for gardening, is good pH paper, like pHydrion. The 1-13 range is fine for most purposes, runs about $6-8 for a roll that will last most folks 5 years.

I inherited a couple of sets of these from when I worked in the lab. pH meters were finicky then and expensive and I cannot imagine your average gardener needing one. Frank

.. and besides .. if one has no clue on how to keep the measuring electrode(s) in correct condition the pH measures are near to worthless :-)

Nothing beats sending a sample to your extension service, most are very inexpensive. Meters need to be calibrated, accurate ones are about the same price as a rototiller.
