Not Bad

yep, I bought it year ago for 11 quid

The quality of some of these compressors are appalling so if you buy one make sure you test it within a couple of days.....

I got what looks the same model for £3.99 from my local BP forecourt last year. Good little unit.

I believe Home Bargains are doing them cheaper than this too.

well,but it do what is suppose to do :thumbsup:

Home Bargains sell them for £3.99, and they look pretty much the same as these, upto 150 psi..

Would be interesting to see who makes the TESCO one and compare it to the one i have in the garage..

If its anything like the home bargins one, it will brake after 3 uses lol Just fell to pieces inside. At least it managed to pump my wheel up enough for me to get off the motorway after a puncture. I've got a halfords only now that i got for £7 which is good for blowing up a tyre but the PSI meter is inacurrate by at least 2psi. All the portable ones are crap so use a petrol station one (some are free) but as a emergancy compressor it might be ok.

just what i need , got a new bike and tyres need to go to 100psi , no punctures as yet but dont fancy having to pump them up

Would take a day to inflate a bicycle tyre - avoid unless you've plenty of time on your hands, or have the patience of a saint.

total rubbish inflated my 19" type r tyre in about 10 seconds!

Great price,

I went to get some air in tyres and water for windows the other day at BP and they wanted £1 for 4 minutes usage! Used to be 20p for air and free water.

can you use this for airbeds?

My experience with 2 of this type of compressor (1 bought 1 given) is avoid like the plague - they last about 8 usages only. By all means get one from Tesco but keep the receipt, at least you can get your money back.

To use with an airbed you would have to either cut the end off or have an adaptor as it has a car tyre valve end.

It comes with an adaptor for other stuff. Just got one today from Northampton (Mere Way) if anyone's interested, a few left on the shelf. Not bad for the money although it seemed to struggle a little reaching 32 (2.2) when inflating my car tyres. It flew up to 30 quite quickly but then was slow getting the pressure up another 2 notches.
