It comes with a case. This is the digital version where it stops at the pressure you set it too, not to be confused with the one with the gauge.

they are sold under different brands and colours such as Ring or Rac and had one for couple of years. The best and easiest pump I've used, and has built in light.

Top Tech 12v Digital Multifunction Air Compressor This Digital Tyre Air Compressor is powerful enough for all passenger vehicles, and small enough to store in your boot, for an emergency.
With a high quality ABS Body, and a built in LED work light This Pump has everything you need, for HALF the normal price!
12v 200w Power
Screw on Valve connector for maximum grip
Self select pressure mode with automatic switch off
Fitted with 12v fused cigarette lighter socket allows it to be used in almost any vehicle.
Built in white light for direction and red light for emergency use.

Decent. Looks exactly like the Ring one that's £20 on Amazon

Thanks op
nice find op, great price from a brilliant seller, heat added
I've got the Ring version. 25 quid. It's worth it for the yellow buttons! Seriously, these are way better than the clockwork ones, where you have to guess if you've reached the right pressure. I used to pump the tyres up with those , with a dodgy lever attachment, then have to check them with a digital gauge, only to find they were still way low. These give you a bit more than you need which you lose when you unscrew the attachment. And they stop automatically when they reach the pressure you need.
Cheers OP, ordered...
The digital ring version of this has a high failure rate (check Amazon) - the LCD / torch aspect often fails. I had to send mine back and I'm not the only one.

Loads of people on here recommend the gauge one and is the one I ended up with. It's also more accurate than the digital version, which was was a massive 5psi out on mine. The sensors in the 'digital' version are cheap and not accurate. At least with a gauge it's going to be reasonably close based on it's construction alone.
Appreciate you posting the deal; ordered one.
Read it as malfunctioned air compressor and thought op had gone mental.

Guess it's your eyes and brain that's gone malfunctioned to read so
Ordered. I've had a Halfords one for years, it just packed up so this is very timely. The Halfords one was also digital and I always found it pretty accurate when checking against (probably inaccurate) garage air-lines. If this one lasts as long as the Halfords one did - 12+ years of probably at least monthly use, I seem to be plagued by cars with porous alloys I'll be a happy bunny
Good find. Heat op
at least it pumps air.
last time I bought mitchelin pressure gauge £5 posted here and thought it can put air press in the tyres but infact it only checks psi level
Is this one really any good ?
I have a slow puncher this is perfect for me thanks op
Where do you use code on the mobile site?

Add to basket, then view and it should be there
Anyone know if this would be robust enough for higher PSI jobs (around 130)?
Thankyou and ordered,have used this and works really well.

probably not. I've had mine for about 5 years ( the yellow button LED torch Ring version) and recently tried to pump up/check all 4 car tyres in a row. On the 4th tyre it cut out and blew a fuse in the car. My dad has the same one and a few days later also done all 4 of his tyres and on the 4th his also cut out. turned out the fuse that was blown in his case was in the cigarette lighter plug on the pump itself.

in general it's a decent pump and handy to have in the car but for extended use (4tyres in a row) or a large item then I'd give it a miss.
Got one last time this was posted, works very well but I bought it primarily to inflate a load of footballs every few weeks, digital cut off sensor is accurate and great for this purpose
Ordered, thanks OP

You have to guess with an analogue scale?! Can you read an analogue scale? On mine I would need to 'guess' where a fifth of an division was at most. Even if you were to be a slightly above or below the ideal pressure, this uncertainty compared to the change in pressure over the time between most people checking their pressures, the changes in load (people, shopping and fuel) of the vehicle over that time, the mass of air which will escape, the changes in temperature day to day or the changes in tyre temperature over a journey are far greater, and far greater than the uncertainty in the s4!++y sensors they put into digital pumps. Digital pumps are easy, but dumb.

ring and rac ones goes up to 80 max so guess not. i was thinking the same as my bike tyre goes upo to 140psi
Just bought a ring version, but gauge not digital. Worth noting that Autoexpress did a review of 12V pumps and this (in a Ring design) was top autoexpress.co.uk/acc…car

The difference is that bicycle tyres have much less volume, and you generally only have half as many, so it might be able to cope without melting down.

However, I read below that this can only be set to 80PSI so no dice.

You've used every type of digital pump then ?
My halfords digital one is spot on when checked with a decent gauge.

Yeah sure why not?! In fact I personally test every single gauge which is manufactured in the world. There you go! Dumb, rhetorical question. Explains why you have a dumb digital gauge. Although you didn’t trust it enough NOT to check it against “a decent gauge” did you?!

Digital gauges are cheap. Therefore they will have a high failure rate...

...and their accuracy wil be highly variable and suspect. There will be a normal distribution for all gauges, [I'm not saying my analogue one is perfect, but it corresponds well whenever I have used service station gauges - which have to be regularly calibrated IF there is a charge for their use] and its 'good enough' i.e. not 5psi or more out. The spread of distribution is far higher when using cheap, inaccurate digital gauges. You got lucky by all accounts and got one which is exactly correct at the pressures you need for your tyres. Well done. When I tested it, I found it inaccurate for all other pressures.

Yes

Yes


It's also very noisy, which is why I guess the poster felt the need to shout...
A friend of mine has one and it does the job , but the cigar lead is not long enough to reach all the tyres, you need a cigar/cigarette lighter lead extension .

It is noisy but you use it outside , don't you ?

Yes outside. When you pump the air. Which is not for long.
Rubbish....... Bought at Christmas for this price. Lasted 3 tyres and gave up on the 4th. Even the return was messed up.
Further reduction in price with new code and 16.5% Quidco
Code invalid or expired....boo!:(
