Digital tyre compressor can be used to inflate / top of car tyres. 12v so plugs into cigarette lighter in your car. I read the reviews of the various compressors available - in this price bracket this one from Ring was the best (in my opinion) since it's simple to use and inflates tyres quickly (flat to 30psi in 3 minutes).

It's on eBay but it's a seller with good feedback and a lot of stock (potentially) - More than 10 available / 312 sold. Free delivery.

I just bought a great wee one from a Sainsbury's petrol station for under £10. (Think it was £9.50)

Did it come with a digital gauge or an analog one? The cheaper ones tend to have an old fashioned speedo-type dial on there and you have to keep an eye on it as it inflates your tyres, then switch it off or disconnect it just as it gets to the pressure you want. With this kind you program the PSI you want, connect it up, press the button to pump, then you can leave it as it will stop automatically when the right pressure is reached - so works similarly to one you'd find on a garage forecourt (and have to pay to use usually).

no love for my tyre pump thingy?
Can somebody tell me where I can get one like this (or similar) for less money?

completely different and less power and take forever to pump a tyre

I have this, and love it.

My local garage allows you to pump up the tyres for free. I've tried out my new compressor though and it works fine. It's made by the AA so not bad quality. It does what I need it for :-)

but ur local garage wont come out and pump up your tyre. trust me when you need it you will understand why you should spend the money on this.

I prefer the analogue gauges, they're more reliable. A lot of reports of the digi gauge packing up, which is probably due to the extreme vibration the compressor makes when its running.

Got mine from Amazon 4 years back, not sure if same model, but works very well and still going strong !

This is a good price for the digital one with worklight, i prefer the analogue one & a seperate pressure guage known to be accurate.

and driving to a garage with a flat tyre will cost 3 times the cost of having a pump in the boot to replace the tyre you shredded. People often forget that but any old thing will do in an emergency

I got the RAC 640 last week just to add the inflatable connections for toys and beach type stuff + airbeds.

Well mine's been dispatched so I hope it's good! Not very popular here I guess but a few of you liked it.

I have one of these. It blew a fuse on my old Focus once, but since then it's been fine. It pumps to about 1psi over what you set it to, so at first you might panic that it's not going to stop. But I guess they do that to allow for slight escape of air as you remove the hose.

No fear of my tyres getting shredded, as I said I bought a compressor from the AA that works fine. I've just got into the habit of checking tyre pressure when i fill up with petrol so I personally don't have a need for a super snazzy compressor.
