I use one like the top one, works really well. Just hang it up a bit higher than the brake that you are bleeding. The magnets not that good so I just wrap a bit of wire around it to keep it in place.

And I have the bottom one that works ok. only problem with the style I have the brake fluid being hygroscopic the metal ball and spring can (and do) rust. A squirt of CRC or the like helps. Also use a heavy containerto bleed into. All said and done I wouldn't mind trying the top one.
