For our Odyssey, I bought the Autel TS408 for $116.43 (eBay) and 4x 315mhz sensors for $99.50. So it was about the same price as the $220 kit with pad+4 sensors. I like not needing a laptop to use the tool. I haven't tried it on the Leaf, because I had already been using a set of non-clone-able sensors on my Leaf winter tires, and have used LeafSpy to learn them when I swap tires. However, if I had already bought the TMPS cloner, then I'd have cloned them instead. That seems simpler. And since the Honda has no option to learn new TPMS codes at all, it was either pay $116 once for the cloning tool, or pay a shop to swap the tires seasonally ($80 to $160 per car per year... the cloner pays for itself in 1-2 years). My guess is that we will eventually see TPMS reading/cloning functions folded into one standard ODB2 tool (I use Autel CRP129), so someday you won't have to buy two tools.
FYI, when I was cloning the Honda wheels, I was able to do each wheel in succession, without the TS408 accidentally reading the wrong wheel. Maybe I just got lucky. To be sure, I was keeping a list of the codes I'd already seen, so if I saw one a second time, I would notice.
