ive got one of these, its a good piece of kit, heat added

yeah brilliant product.

great product had mine over a year one of the best things i ever bought !

Agreed. Great product.

Got something similar to this, but the PSI reading is quite often a bit off, so I usually just check the pressure at a garage anyway - how reliable/accurate are these Ring Automotive ones? Cheers

Mine didn't last long.

Really great buy, thanks for posting.

After reading the reviews I've purchased one, thanks!

I have one and its a great bit of kit, much better then the Halfords Rapid inflate one it replaced.

Ordered thanks been after a decent one of these for a while at a good price.

Was looking for one of these last week and cheapest seemed to be £20.. bargain, ordered!

Have some heat

would cover 45 - 93 trips to garage @ 10p / 20p a time

sp3ctre You can get digital ones for less than £20

I hate this site!! - ordered thanks op

LOL, oops, didn't look at the description (or the pic) close enough, I presumed they were all digital nowadays.... just canceled my order

hot! thanks!

Perhaps a benefit of the analogue display over a digital one is if you just want to check the tyres, you don't need to plug it into the car. I am assuming here, but i guess the digital one would needs power from the ciggi lighter to just show the reading on the display?

is the analogue display easy enough to read?

Damn it, just bought a £16.99 cheapie yesterday.

I bought this a couple of weeks ago from Amazon.... It was £8.99 then, so its gone up.
Seems ok, but the display is out and you have to use a proper air pressure guage with it.

and avoiding the headache of going to garage to find out the pumps not working. Happened to me last sunday

is it better to get the 630 over this?

The air pressure gauges aren't accurate at the service stations either. So whether you buy this pump or use a petrol station, you will still need a proper gauge.

Yes..... but some digital gauges are more accurate than others.
I use one of the sliding metal ones from Halfords, because they always get good reviews in tests for accuracy. But i'm quite fussy about accuracy for air pressure, as its quite important for motorcycle tyres.

so what better than this one for a little bit more money. I need one for the micra

I was thinking the RAC630 but price is £21.99 on it now

Dont know how good the 630 is..... but i still wouldn't trust it to be accurate, and some reviews have said the digi display has stopped working after a while.
Its for this reason i bought the one in this deal and use a seperate gauge for accuracy.

Agree with jeff, a decent sliding gauge will last for years, and will allow you to get whatever compressor you want.
Petrol station gauges are woefully innacurace(due to them bein abused, dropped in the rain, amongst other things)

Just come across this. Expensive but powerful.

There's a recent test of pressure gauges in BIKE or RIDE magazine; some of the gauges got high reviews and are under £10 if anyone is after an accurate gauge as well? If you can't be arsed to buy the mag PM me and i'll dig it out and tell you what the goods ones were.
