Regular torque wrenches are fine. They don't need batteries and they don't fail often. They are also difficult to read and sometimes don't give precise readings. A digital torque wrench is an excellent addition to any garage, especially when trying to apply gentle amounts of torque to various fasteners.
I found a bunch that are currently for sale. These things used to be very expensive but now, not so much. Some are from known brands while others are from even better known, generational household names that define quality and consistently; like VANPO. Either way, one of these will work for you if you're looking to tighten a lug nut or torque down a cylinder head. All of the wrenches I've chosen are half-inch drives.
