These are small and dance all over the place when being used BUT I have carried on around with me for years and its still going strong.
Ideal for that annoying slow puncture.

Mine also came with LiLo and football adapters

Nice deal but, no doubt, my local won't have any.

The jump leads are reduced to £2.50 in Kendal Asda. I bought them last week for £3.25.

Original Poster

The Buggers charge me £5 for the leads!! That was at Havant Asda...

Not worth the original £10 on the Air Compressor, Home Bargains sell em for £2.99 all the time

You might need to borrow the ear-protector off Rizla's cat... these things jump rattle roll and make a hell of a noise... but eventually the tyre is inflated and the dial doesn't work and the nozzle reaches extreme temperature, but at this price better than a foot pump... if maybe a little slower....

Useful to have one in the boot, but was £5 at my Asda.

£10 is way overpriced but £2.50 is worth some heat!

Yes the original price for the Air Compressor dooes seem over inflated. But this is a great deal so have some hot ai.......erm I mean heat!

These are crap. They bounce about, are loud and take an age to pump up a tyre.

And you can jig the pressure gauge about to give different readings.

You order online and select "collect at a store near you".

Well worth keeping one in the car

Got on in Ipswich several left. Heat added. I spent 50p for air the other day in the garage as some sod let my tyres down. Probably kids.

damn..i paid £10 two weeks ago

Yes, if you are going to sleep in the car or have a cigarette lighter socket in the bedroom...;-)

needle is un-readable, it jumps all over the shop when switched on, you're better off with a digi. cold even at this price, sorry.

Better spending £20 on the one currently in Costco if have access, very stable, quiet, large hose and quite fast at pumping up, gauge is quite accurate too.

Might be near 10 times the price, but it's 1000 times better

didn't really need one but got the last one n pudsey for 'just in case' thanks.

ps this was the shelf price.

No

These might be noisy and jump all over the place but for a (reasonably) quick top up of air they do the job, you can always go to a petrol station when you need to pump up more but this will help you get to one!

Think you,ll find most of the Autocare products and labelled up wrong , I took most of the shelf to the tills yesterday and found it all scanning at half price, jump leads scanned at £2.50, tyre gauge checkers were £1.75 etc etc , loads in stock, in Fulwood, Preston, filled my trolley lol

Terrible product. As said its loud - takes ages to fill anything up - and also it blew the fuse on my cigarrette lighter!!

Prime example of cheap tat, I too had one of these in the 80's ..the guage discrepancy is enough to put me off, these jump so much they need coralling between (or drilled onto a housebrick) to stop em moving.
Better than soft tyres ...just.

Please someone dig out a deal for the ring digital R.A.C. inflators..
