No good for me, I've got a Honda

PLEASE READ ALL COMMENTS BEFORE YOU ASK ME A STUPID QUESTION. IT BECOMES CLEAR I'M A MUPPET 😁

7.5 mins for a tiny tyre...... life's too short for that garbage. Cold
Perfect for inflating bike tyres, just what i was after. Thank you
Good find
Given heat at that price it's good for small tyres like wheelbarrow or bikes. I wouldn't use it on my car, most car tyres are around 16".
I got one for £4. It started smoking after about 15 minutes regular use. Don't use it for too long before cooling down.

It will easily inflate larger car tyres, I use mine on 17 inch tyres. The above is only an example on times. Useful to keep car tyres at the correct pressures and thus saving you money on fuel, less resistance to turn car wheels if they are at correct pressures.
A bit slow and emits a hot smell after about five minutes continuous running but mine's worked fine for years and is good for keeping tyres topped up when needed.
Perfect for balloons.

I can't remember ever having to inflate from 0. This seems perfectly good for most people's use.

I thought you meant because the car comes with one anyway. Mine did at least.
Is no fast is it!!! I can do all 4 tyres for 20p in a couple of minutes at the inflating/water machine at my local ASDA petrol station that is close to home.

£5 for this deal = 25 shots for me at the ASDA machine, and I probably do it say 5 times a year, so reckon I will just stick with current method for next 5 years.

PS why on earth are they quoting 14" wheels as a guide. What or how many cars actually have 14" wheels these days? Is that not Robin Reliant or Smart Car territory? I have 16" wheels which is fairly small these days, must take an absolute age to inflate them with this type of contraption?

I suppose this item is portable and in theory could be good for an emergency, if you have 20 mins to spare to inflate. But even then, an emergency is basically a flat tyre, and this product won't have enough power to inflate a flat tyre, and it would actually only lose more air, that you could not replace, once the valve has been opened up.

Have you tried it? I think you'd find this is designed for high pressures, not volume, so it would be pretty slow blowing up a baloon.
Good price. But it is loud and takes a long time to get to 33psi

Can't find deal now ... was HUKD Amazon Prime 22 December 2017, now £15.99!
This was £2.99 on amazon the other day. I tried to post the deal but it was taken down because they didn’t like the seller. Despite them having like 99% positive feedback

It will inflate any car tyre. They have given a 14" tyre as an example from flat to 30psi.

Another one that doesn't read the comments
Im sure it works, but in my experience nothing beats the Ring Analogue (Rac 610 I think) that is usually less than 15 quid on amazon or ebay.

I've not been overly impressed with the ring ones. I've had the digital ones. I'm on the second now, the first died early and had the second as a free replacement. The second one still works but the end pops off, so you have to hold the rubber pipe on each time you use it. There is a bit of a metal coil which is supposed to hold it in place but it doesn't.

I also get an occasional stall, where it won't get started if the pressure is already high. For example if I'm blowing bike tyres up and they are at 65psi now and I want to get them to 70psi. Then the motor might stall when trying to inflate. To get it to work I have to deflate the tyre first, then inflate to the desired pressure. (Being careful not to stop early as it won't start again)

If anyone is after the ring analogue though, it is currently £10.95 on Amazon.

Don't.. ......🤐 be stupid.
BP petrol station charged me 50p to use their airline.
Sainsbury are free but often out of order as people keep cutting snd nicking the end off.
Always best to have a compressor in your boot for emergencies.

Must be a prob with the digital ones, I have never had trouble my trusty ring analogue I bought in 2010 fail, used it many times on many different types of tyre at home, holiday and at work. I have bought 5 others for family members. The pressure gauge is very accurate. How does it pop off on yours? on mine they are screwed on to the valve like a dust cap, which means you have to be quick at screwing it off when finished pumping.
But it is better than the usual clip on ones that are fragile and don't always seal on the valve very well.

Only thing that is abit annoying is that the 12v connector fits in most sockets quite loosely, which means the slightest pull on the wire will prevent the connection from powering it so you have to go back to the the 12v cig socket and wiggle it. And I have never successfully managed to coil the lead back in the way it comes from the factory, I always adlib and get it good enuff.

But for £10.95 as you point out it currently is on amazon, there is nothing to touch it. Everyone and every company should buy these ring analogues for staff vehicles instead of providing crap ones or like my old work place, would you believe, foot pumps. I am not trying to ruin this persons deal, but I would recommend everyone heads over to amazon and pays the extra £6, it will last you 5 years plus easily if you look after it reasonably well. And you should aswell pal, I bet you wont have any of the headaches the digi one has given you.

Also, if any of you have an electric car pump that has stopped working, and you know it is not a problem with your cars 12v cig socket, you can usually get the working again by replacing the little 10 Amp glass fuse that is inside the 12v plug/male end of your pump. You can either screw the plug open or prise it open and glue it closed again. This goes for most car 12v accessories.
These fuses are very cheap on ebay, here is 10 for £1.49 ebay.co.uk/itm…rYG

The screw on bit stays on the valve on the car and the rubber tube pops of that, annoyingly the fact that the bit is still screwed on results in it acting as a deflating tool instead!. The rubber tube has a metal coil which is over the top which I take it is supposed to hold the rubber pipe on the brass barb that is exposed when the pipe pops off. The metal coil seems too loose. The high pressure stalling is annoying but I've taken to using a track pump which will do the bike tyres in a few long cycles of the pump and ends up being much much quicker to do.

I might try one of the analogue ones for the other car, it isn't a lot to lose. I doubt the design of the pipe attachment will be any different and I doubt the motor will be any different but even with those issues the digital one has worked. I just think there must be something better out there - although I guess it will come at a much higher price.
Don't do it. If you've got a slow puncture on a good tyre get a 5th Gear one. I got mine on Amazon (yes I know, "Quelle sur....etc.) I went through 3 of these (or ones similar and they are cr-p.) They get hot and self destruct. Get the one I said or one that looks like it and you won't go far wrong. It l looks like 1 half of a foot pump (you'll know what I mean). Cheers, Geord'.

I believe this person is referring to the Suoki branded but identical looking pump which was £4.99 before Christmas. That managed to inflate a tyre from 12psi to 35 in about 8min. I was skeptical when I bought it given the puny size, but I was pretty impressed with the performance and have it in my glove box for emergencies.

I got my engine and tyres mixed up. I thought it was a battery charger!
