Very good quality, great product. Comes in protective case. Very easy to use....attach to tyre, display shows tyre pressure, press +/- to set pressure you want, switch on, pump turns off when correct pressure is reached. Job done !
I bought this Ring compressor a couple of years ago, so my review is based on a tried and tested product.
Having owned numerous compressors, I find that this is by far the easiest and most reliable to use. The compressor is relatively silent, and strong enough to handle normal tyre pressure with ease, unlike on my previous compressors where the motor used to struggle once over around 20 psi.
I really like the high quality metal thread connector which screws onto the tyre valve stem. Apart from offering an airtight connection, it also results in minimal loss of air whilst unscrewing. Most other commercial pumps offer a clip on system, which is fragile and quite annoying to use.
Pro: - Great design and sturdy construction. - Very good tyre inflation concept and design. Rubber on the outside thus providing a solid grip, and durable metal thread on the inside - User preset cut out pressure remains in memory. No need to set the pressure every time compressor is used - Plug and forget. Whilst with most compressors you need to watch the display to check for the desired pressure, the Ring will stop automatically at the preset pressure. Works great! - Built in torch and flashing red lights (very hand at night). If inflating on the road, the flashing lights are indispensable for safety - The LCD display is so much better to read than the typical vibrating needle gauge - Can be used to deflate over-inflated tyres (summertime) by a simple push on the dedicated button next to the nozzle head. - Useful accessories which make this compressor appeal to anyone. Inflates footballs, lilos, airbeds... - Can be stowed away neatly and easily. The design of the unit makes stowing the cables easy and everything plugs back into place. Unit can then be placed in the supplied protective cover.
Cons: - Pity it cannot be used in the house. A mains connector would have made it the ideal multipurpose inflation device.
Considerations: 1. When the compressor is used as pictured (in the vertical position) it tends to tilt over during use. Yet the compressor has rubber pads on the side, which means that you can lay it on its side with the controls and pressure indicator facing upwards. I do think that that it was designed to be used this way. 2. When inflating more than one tyre, with a preset pressure in memory, pressing the + button will reactivate the pump after an automatic cutout. This avoids the need to disconnect and reconnect the cigarette lighter plug.
I highly recommend the Ring Automotive RAC640 Digital air compressor. A must have for motorists.
The Ring Automotive RAC640 definitely merits a 5 star ratingRead more ›
Very pleased with purchase. Compressor seems to be fairly robust & all leads and hoses etc. stow neatly away. Compressor has it's own good quality carry case. Easy to understand instruction booklet provided. Compressor is easy to use and is very accurate.
Good product. Very easy to use and the tyres on my car, motorbike and even my bicycle all have the right pressures! (I used to have a compressor, but it was just a straight "pump" type - plus the gauge wasn't very accurate -so a real hassle to use.) This Digital one is so much easier to use -just set the pressure and it pumps to the right setting and stops automatically - great! I got fed up of the queues at our local petrol station (plus they charged for air anyway) - this is so much better! It comes in a good protective case too, which helps keep it safe/ tidy (I now keep it in my car boot)
I have no complaints regarding this item. I was going to buy a cheaper model but I am glad I didn't. It comes in a carry case, its light to carry and stores nicely in the boot. All cables store away easily and there is even a storage compartment in the bottom of it for the deflater and valve adapters. It is easy to use, quickly checks the pressure in the tyre and does as it states, inflates to the preset pressure and cuts out. I have an analogue tester and it appears to check out that it inflates to the correct pressure. I would recommend this unit.
