As the car has been idle for a couple of months, I needed to inflate all four tyres so yesterday, I used it for the first time this year. They wearn't flat but were all low, about 18 - 24Lbs. All progressed OK to start with but it was slowing-down by the time I started the third tyre; it had about 18lbs and needed to be at 32lbs..
Well, it never got there - the compressor got slower and slower, so quickly decided to switch it off but before I had the chance to do this, it just stopped. There was no power (the display was not illuminated) so decided to check the lead. As I opened the door, I was greeted with that horrible smell of electrical burning. The plug had partially melted and the fuse had blown. So I chopped it off and replaced the plug with a much better quality unit and nothing; I checked the polarity and that was fine as there was power gitting to the unit as the display was now lit, so it was clear - the compressor had seized.
So, used on three occasions and that's that! All I can advise is to beware - this, and I have to guess the all the other rebaged clones such as Ring, Streetwise - must come out of the same chinese factory. Its a very cheap product, but there is a reason - its awful. Frankly, the AA should be ashamed of the licence fee thay're collecting by putting their name on it.
Three months later when I needed to use it I found it didn't work. The lights turned on and the inital display worked, but as soon as it was attached to the car tyre it turned off. Then to top it off, after a few attempts to turn it on again, it blew the fuse in my cigarette lighter. Thinking it might be a problem with my car I tried it again in 2 different cars, the exact same thing happened, including blowing the fuses in the cigarette lighters.
Now it it possbile that I have just been unlucky and received a faulty model, but I strongly recommend testing it fully when you receive it. I have contacted Amazon to see if there is anything that can be done after such a long time. If I do get a replacement I will come back and let you know how I got on with it.
In comparison to my old Halfords pump purchased in 1998 the plus' are: it's quieter, seems to inflate quicker, has the digital display and automatic cut-off. The negatives are the lead is shorter (I could inflate front tyres with the pump plugged in the boot), the power socket is not very easy to grip, and the lead storage is not as good.
I'm getting use to the screw on adapter as the old one was of the locking type. Hopefully I won't experience problems reported in other reviews and I'll get 15 years service out of this one.
the 12v plug really should be improved in design to make it easier to remove - my last compressor had 'grips' on the plug but this is completely smooth plastic so getting a good grip with anything other than clean dry grease-free hands is not the easiest.
it does its job well enough though and the digital display with auto-off (once desired pressure is achieved) is handy. compact and neat enough in storage case supplied. for the price its okay - just can't help thinking that for an extra couple of quid it would be worth raising the quality of the plastic components of the unit itself.
the plug recently got hot enough to burn my hand when removed from 12v supply and on subsequent use got hot enough to melt/burn-out completely. (amazon have sent me a foc replacement but quite honestly would rather have had a refund to put towards a better quality version). appears mine is not the only case of these units blowing fuses and/or overheating. with overheating issues i am surprised they are deemed fit for purpose or even fit for sale.
the replacement received from amazon does not work (lights and display ok but no compressor) and will therefore be returned for a refund. quite incredible.

The product is cheaply made and dangerous. The plug literally melted on my 3rd tyre.
I bought a Halfords branded replacement which is clearly of higher quality.
