Cheap quality tyre inflator, not to be mistaken for the digital models. A few conflicting reviews some say this is the best all rounder some say the digital ones with cut offs and led lights, some say the digital display fails but this analogue one looks just the ticket for a cheap and cheerful inflator to chuck in the boot. A lot of favourable reviews, might be worth picking up a pressure checking gizmo to check them.

Sorry, this was a bit of a let down

I can always count on you for hot air

This has been blown out of all proportion.

That's really cheap. I picked up the digital one during the black friday

Had one of these. Not used often. All in all it inflated/topped up 3 tyres before giving up.

Still the light still works!

I have this and the ring digital one and both are 2psi out on the high side compared to a manual gauge and my local garage. Only reason I notice was that the front tyres on my 4x4 were spinning in the wet and the TC light came on, which is pretty unusual. As soon as I set it using the manual gauge and dropped it a couple of PSI all round everything was fine.

I've had 2 of the digital versions of this, both of which failed after a few months. I've had this analogue version for years and it's still going strong. Great value and just as easy (if not easier) to use.

I have had this for a couple of years and it still works just fine. Handy having the inline gauge (although it is out by a couple of psi, I check with a separate gauge). I would recommend it.

1p cheaper now @ £8.98 delivered.

****Brand New Range For 2009**** Eh, it's 2012 now. X)

must be selling old stock off,Ring went into administration a couple off years back

Likewise.

had one for like 5 years then it give up was analogue far more reliable version I think.

I bought one of these for my wife. She asked me for a ring.. She felt let down..

Good for inflatable wives lol

I have one of these and can recommend it. I've had it for a year and works well. I'd say from 20ppi it takes around a minute to inflate to 30.

brought one of these. ideal for the car. seems well built. half the price of a digital one as well

Thanks.. ordered.. got a little "Tyred" of using the footpump....

This deal seems to have gone a bit flat

Pump it up then ? hehe

How ironic. Got back to my home train station tonight and I had a flat tyre. My trusty digital version of the one in this deal (about 4+ years old) did the trick perfectly so I could limp the car home.

Mine has always been spot on and when I have tested, the readout has also always been within 1psi of a properly calibrated pressure gauge.

i gather it wont be any good for my scooter then.... its only 2psi on the front wheel oO

Is there anyway to plug this into the mains? I don't think my car battery could handle this.

No, not unless you get a 10amp inverter (looking at least 3 figures for a decent one) - best you can get for a few quid is a 5amp and this would just cut out in seconds - needs up to a 10amp. I have a little Ibiza and it handles it with ease.

thanks, gone for one of these.

i have just used mine for the first time. tried to pump my car tyre to 2.5 bar. it took forever past 2 bar and then cut out and made an awful racket

i left it to cool and tried it and it made the noise again and burnt the fuse out

shame as the reviews are very good.
