I have been waiting for this to drop in price for a while. Broke our trusty RAC630 earlier in the year, but it had earned its worth.

According to the camel site it is the lowest it has been for a while.

No brainer for me. No more queuing for air at the petrol stations, especially if you have more than one car. The gauge on my RAC630 was accurate and this one has been reported to be very accurate by autoexpress.

Of course if you have a Sainsburys petrol station nearby then this may be superfluous as they tend to not charge for air!

Because when you post a deal the box states and I quote " describe in your own words why this is a good deal. Do not just copy and paste marketing specs."

Hence me making an effort to stick to the HUKD advice.

Sorry if it offends you. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

BTW, I have tried the other cheaper varieties and they are unreliable, pressure gauge is 5-7 psi off and overall feel cheap. This on the other hand is an excellent device and comes in its own case which is really helpful when you chuck it into the boot.

Thanks op i like your description : )keep it up hot from me!
Decent build quality, nice and accurate (I have a similar Ring one), well worth £25. Ignore the haters OP. Hot from me.
I have one , it pumps tires to desired pressure...so yeah
I had a very similar ring compressor that just stopped working while I was part the way through inflating the last tyre on my transit, it was just outside the warranty so I've gone back to using my old compressor which is still working fine. I might of been unlucky but things like that put me off buying the same make again
Mine barely lasted a year so will stick to tye garages.
After years at last thanks for finding it
I bought pretty much one for each car but i got the RC 600 model - http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000UPEHJU/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=569136327&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B002Q560WE&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=0PAY6ZZ01HCDR1F640XG

It was on here a while ago for £15... I dont see much difference between the two if im honest,

Ok yes you save 30 seconds on your tyre pump, but the 630 only goes up to 80psi vs 100 psi for the 600, which kinda tells me the 600 has a better seal and/or stronger pump, ergo lasts longer?

The RAC600 was released 6 years ago, the 635 last year. For the extra fiver I prefer the 635. I also like the twist controller on the 635 to the press buttons on the 600.

If you can find it for £15 then the 600 is certainly worth it.
i bought one of these a little while back and it was terrible kept displaying incorrect PSI or it wouldnt power up.

I then purchased a Michelin one which has worked perfectly.
I've had my eye on this too after getting a slow puncture I borrowed one and it was a god send heat added and bought.
Great piece of kit, Got for around £7 from amazon on a deal on here though might have been older model

the bit in bold is why your other one broke
My RAC610 randomly stopped working like some people describe here and it turned out to be a poorly soldered wire that had come loose from the pump. I just re soldered it and it's working fine again.
I've had this compressor for good few years and it does the job well.
Sure I've seen this cheaper, guess that's inflation for you...

Don't blow this out of proportion
non digital model can be had for 12 quid at amazon. much better price ifits a punt and youre not actually sure if you will need to use (to just throw in boot and forget).

ive an exceptionally slow leak on my tyre caused by slight corrosion on my alloys around the valve stem. MUCH cheaper than paying to have my alloys refurbed.
The non digital model is fine and half the price. I use it on my Ferrari.
Many thanks, been waiting on this dropping in price for a while. I've probably spent double this in 50p charges at petrol stations on a slow annoying air leak. :-)

It's not a phone, what's wrong with it being release 6 Yrs ago?

I would go with the 'old' but higher mechanical specced one.

Edit, if I were product developing a newer model but exactly the same function, I would take my original design and make it better (aesthetics and design), but also do a 20% cost down on parts to get more profit.

Just bought one of these to replace my foot pump.
Back in February I used flubit to get the RAC610 analogue version, £20.20 for 2!
I'd read a few reports that the digital versions fail as the pressure gauge breaks and they won't pump as they only pump up to the desired level, so analogue for me.
Mine has the lcd display (like a Casio watch) and works great. These ones stop when they reach the psi you set. Heat.
Showing as £29.49 from Amazon now
Did price go up? thanks
These are very good. I had one for last couple of months, after finding a flat tyre in the morning. I purchased it from Maplin for £17 and delivered it to shop. Had a quick look but they've only got analogue with emergency repair kit in stock for £14.99

Unfortunately gone up in price to £29.49. Expiring post now.
any reason why this wouldnt do cycle tyres too? (to 60psi?)

It would work on a schrader, but not on a presta valve.
I have an analogue version of this which is great, this looks like a nice step up in terms of convenience.
£25 now
