Product Description

This digital compressor can inflate a fully-deflated car tyre in under 3.5 minutes. It has an air flow rate of 25L/min. Built-in white light for direction and red light for alert/SOS. Fitted with a fused 12 V power plug and a 3.3 m power cord. Flexible air hose 60 cm with screw-stem connector. Separate pump and light switches. CE-approved.

Automatic Operation - preset the pressure value :-
• Plug the cigarette lighter into the 12v socket. (Fig 1)
• Screw the valve connector clockwise onto the tyre valve stem. Ensure the connector is well connected with the stem. (Fig 2)
• Hold + or – for more than 5 seconds until LCD display flashes. The figure that first appears is the default value (30psi) To change this, press the + or – to the required pressure setting and wait 2-3 seconds. The LCD will display the current pressure value for the item to be inflated.
• Press the M button and the LCD will display “ON” to indicate that the compressor is ready to start working.
• Push the ON/ OFF for the compressor to start, when the pressure value reaches the required value. The compressor will automatically switch off and the LCD display will show “OFF”.
• The ON/OFF button can be used to override the preset pressure value if required.

Note :
Common user error: Inflator will only inflate to max pressure and then automatically shuts off. It will not turn on to inflate a tire that is already at max pressure.

    This is a very easy to use product complete with a built in light. You simply set the required pressure and it whirrs away and cuts off automatically when the right pressure is reached. The only downside is all these types of products are quite noisy and aren't exactly pocket sized - but I think this is a best of breed.

    I made the typical mistake of buying cheaply, and what a waste of money this item has been. It was in perfect working order on arrival, and used it just the once as a trial to see how effective it was. Straightforward to use, no problems. Therefore, it remained stored carefully in the boot of my car with tool kit for emergencies. Ten months later, I needed to use it in an emergency, stuck in the middle of a potentially dangerous situation in a very remote location. This was only the second time I had used it, but the compressor completely failed to work. The entire item completely failed despite being used only once before and being kept perfectly clean and safe in original packaging in a rigid tool container. Good job I had a spare foot pump. That was £21 wasted, better spent on a few enjoyable pints down the pub than this piece of s***. I will be investing in a Viair, as I should have done in the first place. Potential customers take note!

    Thought I would give this a try as I wanted a mobile compressor. I have the excellent RING RAC750 which hasn't let me down in years but you do need to plug it in at the mains (no cigarette lighter option).

    Started to inflate my car tyre 3 seconds later it cut out - but still made a noise. Deflated the tyre incase it was the preset cut off kicking in - as reported by others - but no, a noise but no pressure increase. Finally, tried a completely flat bike tyre - still no joy.
    Then noticed a rattling noise - tipped it to the side and shook out a small metal cylinder. Clearly faulty. So I have sent it back for a refund.

    The refund will cost me unfortunately as, for my convenience, I took it to the post office, and the 2nd class postage charge will cost me more than the maximum amazon will refund. Oh well another mistake.

    I will look for a quality foot pump instead for keeping in the car for emergencies.

    Actually quite a good product.
    Good points:
    Seems accurate enough when I compared it with a draper tyre pressure gauge. Useful cut-off function when it reaches the pressure you choose. Light could be handy in the dark. Lead from socket is long enough. Hose is long enough. Connector is the screw-on type, which is good for purposes of getting a good seal and no 'popping off' unlike some inflators. Not too noisy. Quicker inflation-rate than some. Nice case to keep it in.
    Bad points:
    Case to keep it in is a bit snug - half a centimetre bigger on each side would make getting it in and out much easier. Storage of 12v cable within the compressor body is also a bit small - have to be careful when wrapping it back up or it won't all fit. Risk of crossing the hose connector thread if you screw it on incorrectly - just have to be careful there.
    Conclusion:
    Not a product to use when you're in a rush, but if you're taking your time it seems fine, and inflation speed is better than many - I would choose it again, and recommend it to anyone who has enough patience to wrap things up and put away properly!

    Owned for just over a year. Ideal for occasional use when there's a cue at the petrol station. However, if you have a slow leak that needs inflating once a week for example, you will soon kill it. Why didn't I get the tyre repaired? It was due to alloy wheels and the tyre was still good for a couple of thousand miles.
    Also, as mentioned by other reviewers, the auto cut off was unreliable. Only use on manual.
    For the price it did good service and better than some others I have tried. Occasional use only.

    Colour Name: AItem Package Quantity: 1 Verified Purchase
    I bought this two years ago and thought it was brilliant at first. The auto cut-off function was really useful, and the display and memory easy to use. However, I noticed after about a year that it became a bit temperamental as to when the display would function correctly (usually playing up when I was in a hurry!) and now after two years the display is permanently stuck at 0 bar, and none of the buttons have any effect on this. Quite disappointed as it's probably only been used about 12-16 times and is now useless as I have no idea what pressure the tyres are, so can't even use it manually :-(
    UPDATE: it works! But only when warm. I've worked out that if the inflator is kept in the cold the led won't work (condensation maybe?). Whatever the case, if I bring the inflator into the house for a while before use it works no problems, straight out of the boot of car on a cool day and it won't!

    I have to agree with the other one star reviews. After a few uses all the digital gizmos and the torch stopped working. It still inflates but I have to use a separate pressure gauge which is inconvenient to say the least. Definitely one to avoid.

    Some reviews are good and some are bad for this pump and my verdict is its a good buy.
    Not sure what some people are looking for but for me I was after a pump that would inflate my car tyres to 34 and 31 psi this pump does it with ease and shuts off when at the right pressure.
    Some people say it takes a long time ??? I did 4 tyres to the correct pressure in less than 15 minutes start to finish, it would take me longer to get to a petrol station and cost me at least £1 for the fresh air I would be using.
    While the light is no good for anything further than 2 feet away it serves it's purpose which is all you need it for.
    The pressure gauge seems to be almost the same accuracy as my pocket gauge from a well known motor store.
    While the lead is pretty long you may need to feed it through the door on one side of your car then the other but this is only to be expected, it's a tight fit to get the lead back into the unit but it will fit. The case is a practical touch and keeps it stored nicely in the boot.
    All in all well worth 4 stars. I'm more than happy.
