    I bought this on the strength of the AA brand name, and when it arrived I was pleased with the overall look and how small and lightweight it was. I briefly tested it to make sure it worked. It appeared to as the display came on fine and the emergency lights were nice and bright, but I didn't try and pump a tyre. I then happily popped it in the boot of my car and forgot about 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.

    I purchased this in July last year, as in the main, the reviews seemed to be OK. I only used it on a couple of occasions and it was great - it worked much quicker that the old inflator I had used previously.

    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.

    Product looked good but cut out when attempting to increase car tyre pressure to 42 psi to tow caravan, which is why I bought it.

    After using a it a few times it packed up on me, so I emailed Amazon customer services although my 30 day return policy was up
    they were just great and they sent me a brand new one right away.
    I just though I would have no problems being a AA product but there you are. Thank You Amazon

    First impressions are that it has good features, the digital display is clear and it's easy to set up the correct pressure using the + & - buttons and the three lighting options are very useful.
    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.

    I always forget to pump car tyres up, now it is easy and quick just to take it out of the bag and inflate them

    I purchased this as a used item... but I was (wrongly) confident about Amazon's interpretation of "used". The device was not needed until about a year after purchasing it, when a slow leak caused me to need to inflate one tyre. It immediately blew the 10amp fuse of the car. After running through three spare 10amp fuses I gave up.
    As it was out of warranty... even though only one use had occurred, I decided to look inside. What I found was clear evidence of damage. The plastic retainers for the motor were broken.. three bits of loose rubber fell out. The cooling fan on the motor shaft only had three vanes left.. the others were broken off but no where to be found. The motor was tied in place with a piece of nylon cord. The appearance was of a device which had had a heavy fall and caused the internals to be broken.
    This device was not fit for purchase and should not have been offered for sale.
