Hey guys I am going to start to do hack sites and was wondering aside from cloak scanners probes etc. is a cargo scanner recommended as well? I am still kind of new so any help would be appreciated... Thanks...

Some use the scanner to check whether it's worth the effort before hacking a can, but be prepared for the pressure to succeed if you see a 50m can. Blink Usually I fit something else to that mid slot and hack all cans.

I'm my own NPC alt.

Depends on what you prefer:
I like that surprise effect after hacking these cans so I dont use these scanners,
but if you want to make more ISK/ hour better take a look before hacking.

I prefer some sort of scanning upgrade module instead. You spend more time probing imo
