Says good for bicycle tyres but I haven't got a 12v socket on my bicycle!
Dont bother. They usually blow the fuse . Otherwise they take an age to inflate the tyre. A good old fashioned foot pump is what you need..........when ar wer a lad we ad no such thing as air !!!!!
Can you blow up dolls with this?

Price good for something everyone with a car should have but better off getting something that connects to the battery

Much more powerful so will inflate quicker even at high psi. These 12v struggle when you get to about 30psi and dont have much of a operating time before they overheat.
Besford14/02/2020 21:52

Why?


Most sockets are rated up to 10A or 15A, if a pump draws more (this can happen on startup), it will blow the fuse.

Great for PSI up to 30 and if you can't be bothered to pop the bonnet.
Be aware that inflators at these prices never have an on/off switch.
They have a low duty cycle. You need to wait for them to cool down as per instructions otherwise they will fail.

I've used one of these cheap inflators to pop the fork seals out of a set of motorcycle front forks (type with Schrader valve adjusters) made changing fork seals very easy!
I've got 3 from either B&M or Home Bargains (can't remember which) that were less than a fiver each. Seems almost identical to the one in the post, but it has a physical on/off switch.

Never failed to perform on any occasion.

One particular pump, kept in the van, gets used and abused almost every other day. Still going strong.

Best advice would be to invest in a cheap pen type pressure gauge from ebay to ensure you are not relying on the built in one.
I love the way it looks industrial yet it just about cuts the mustard for home use 🏽
Brilliant! I can’t wait to blow up my rubber dinghy to 250psi. It will plane over the waves like a speedboat. The dinghy came from the beach shop so it will be ok at that pressure won’t it?
Is this vegan friendly?

Absolutely terrible advice.
Edited by: "HowayTheLads" 15th Feb
Same as Home bargains -very fragile , the guage snapped off on one I had.
Just don't seem to last but can do the job.
Lidl do a similar one for £12.99 but metal body. It says 5 min duty cycle on it but I've used it to inflate a 4x4 tyre from about 8 to 40 PSI which took about 20 minutes. Seems pretty solid and fairly quiet.

I agree, I have a full bicycle pump just to top up, I have inflated a completely flat tyre, but it's rare.

The car battery is also 12v.
Heat added, one of the best thing you can carry in your boot. Also worth looking at the green slime on amazon for puncture. Thanks op.
These ones wobble crazy
Btw I have three of similar kind and never had a problem using them. They are designed as emergency thing in my eyes so not really for pumping all your tyres at once. For under a fiver you can’t go wrong. Hope this helps someone.

Never had one blow the fuse yet. Foot pumps fall over, hard to use (especially as the pressure goes up). These are great for punctures to get you home or to the tyre repair shop rather than a dangerous road side wheel change. They inflate faster if you run the engine. Faster than a foot pump in my experience. Each to their own though eh?
These are very poorly made and wont last long, but for the money it's worth 5 trips to the petrol station pump I guess.
How long will it take to inflate a 225/40/R tyre from flat?

The air wer' so thick, ya couldn'y pump it. I filled my bike tyres with a spoon.
I picked one from Home Bargain for the same price. They are always there..

Depends what pressure you need to inflate it to
These compressors dont last long. For a fiver i wouldn't expect it to all the same. A ring model is a far better option, more money like.
