Feeling deflated? This handy tyre inflator couldn't be simpler to use. Just attach to the tyre, plug it in to your car's 12V socket and let the pump do the rest, it's that easy. It will rapidly inflate your tyres and get you back on the road in no time. This versatile pump can be used on cars, motorcycles, bicycles and even footballs (football and inflatable adaptors included). Perfect to have just-in-case, this is a must have for anyone not fond of fiddling around with foot pumps.

The air hose tucks away neatly when not in use.

  • Adaptor kit included.
  • Size H7, W18, D18cm.

Normally just use these to top up tyre pressure so good deal in my eyes don’t need to go from 0 to 30 psi
"8 minute inflation time based on a 14" tyre from 0 - 30 psi" - can anyone recommend something a bit stronger? I could beat that with a £5 halfords foot pump with less noise!

Damn it. Paid £12 last week. It does work but it is noisy.

Pushbike or motorbike? If motorbike, buy a 12 cigarette adapter accessory for your bike. Only a couple of £'s from eBay and they are great for emergency phone charging, sat nav use if on a long journey, and also useful for pumps like this.

If you have a car battery charger you can attach the jump cables from that to this and it will convert the 240V AC to 14V DC.

Probably quicker just to use a track pump though.
if you use the 50p machine in tesco, this will pay for itself after 12 uses (30 if you use the 20p vends)
£6 is cheap. Ordered and heat added. Thanks.

You can do it in a minute if you buy 8 and connect them together!
Had it for 2 years until suddenly didn't worked. If using on more than one tyre it starts to smell a bit like burning plastic, gets a bit hot and is bloody noisy and slooow, but for £6 it is what it is...
Voted hot anyway @ZanyAngel !

For 8 minutes it goes from flat tyre to flat battery.
£6??? It should be free.
My Michelin inflator does much bigger tyre to 45psi in 40 seconds

What about the 13th use? Shall we come round to yours for a 50p coin?

Lots more.

39626352-fcyip.jpgI bought this and it lasted a couple years but I only used it about a dozen times. It pumped (stated) a 13in tyre from flat to 35PSI in 4.5 minutes, BUT bear in mind it cost 27 quid!

The Argos one is 6 quid. BARGAIN! I will be getting one.
Oh yeah, the Ring one was noisy as hell too, so the argos one being noisy will not put me off.
Have some HEAT!

Did a kids bike tyre at xmas in seconds....
I'd only use it in an emergency myself (car)
Or...just get a new tyre... Simples...
Looking at some of the comments regarding speed of inflation / costs etc I'm baffled. Its 6 quid...?
I wasn't planning on using it as part of the Ferrari pit lane crew

Got my sister one of these last time round for her to use, if necessary, when she does her weekly tyre check.

Also got her a Race X presure guage to accurately check tyre pressures at home whilst tyres are cold, likely to be far more accurate than a forecout 20p air pump.

Both are kept in the car and she religiously checks the tyres every Sunday after I explained simple tyre contact with the road. Such an easy habit to get in to.

Amazon_RaceX_tyre_pressure_guage

Still amazes me how many people don't check their tyres when a simple weekly 5 minute job could save their life. At 70mph there's really not a lot of contact between you and the road, just 4 relatively small patches of rubber and if just one patch goes....

Even more important in icy condtions. Near neighbour has a BMW X5 and I noticed the almost zero tread on the front tyres....utter madness, accident waiting to happen. Note left on the windscreen, see if that does anything.
Thanks op. Just ordered and collected.
Thanks op
had mine for about a year, check the tyres once every 2 weeks or so. Just plug it in and let it run upto the desired psi, maybe a minute or so on each tyre. Very handy to have in the boot.

I have a cheap one for the car. Also have a twin barrel foot pump which leave at home. My car has TPMS so that is handy.

You right tyres are very important, can always go wider tyres for better all round. If I feel my car has small tyres I will always upgrade to wider when current one worn down.

But how many times will you be inflating a completely flat 0 psi tyre to 30 psi? Typically one might use this for a puncture or a top up of air, either way from experience it takes just a few mins and the job is done. Once the pressure gets high, it can be very hard work with a foot pump. But very good exercise if you need to burn off a few calories from Christmas is the only reason I would go for a foot pump ever again!
Thanks, ordered, pick up Monday.
