Product Description

Product Description

****Brand New Range For 2009**** According to the RAC more than 40 people die on our roads every year because of defective or improperly inflated tyres. Scores of others are injured. Tyres are the only point of contact a car has with the road. It is therefore vitally important for motorists to check their tyres regularly. Maintaining correct tyre pressure has benefits other than safety. Under or over inflated tyres suffer more damage than those with the correct pressure and need to be replaced more regularly. Under inflated tyres increase the rolling resistance that require more fuel to maintain the same speed. Correct tyre pressure also benefits the environment by maintaining optimum fuel efficiency, and reduces CO2 emissions. To help motorists maintain optimum tyre pressure, Ring Automotive has launched a new range of compressors. The range incorporates Ring's award winning compressor technology. Analogue and digital compressors are included to suit individual motorist's needs from DIY enthusiasts through to professionals. Neat tidy storage for fused 12v cigarette lighter plugs and the flexible air hoses means that all the compressors will store away easily in the car. To get the maximum performance and life from car tyres, motorists should check their tyre pressure regularly. The new Ring Automotive Compressors are an invaluable accessory to have the car.

This little tyre pump is unbelievable value for money. Having read this you can stop right here, but I can continue by saying that for £10.74 delivered to my door, what on earth was I doing all these years queuing up in the rain to feed 20p pieces into a garage forecourt machine?

This pump has topped up all my car tyres, put air in the wheelbarrow that it hasn't had for years and given my mountain bike a new sprightliness now its tyres are up to 45psi. When I used my old foot pump the act of pulling off the hose would instantly lose me 10psi.

This little machine comes with a 32 page instruction book with more languages than I knew existed, it has a velcro tie to keep the 3m of power cable tidy, it has lots of adapters for lilos etc, it has a silica gel packet to keep it dry and a sturdy box to keep it all in.

It's outrageously good value for money - less than the price of three M & S sandwiches. And, and, its in-built analogue tyre pressure gauge matches pound for pound with my far more expensive Michelin gauge.

If you are looking for a compact easy to store tyre compressor for the boot of your car - this is it. It is compact in design in hard black and silver plastic. The hose is stored in a recess in the case at one end. The power cord has a cable tidy on the back of the unit, which you wrap the cable around, then store the 12v plug in a recess inbuilt into the cable tidy. On / Off control is a large yellow push operated switch. The pressure gauge is small, but gives a guide to tyre pressure. It does state in the manual that "The gauge on this compressor is for guidance only. Check pressure with a known accurate gauge." The compressor should not be used continuously for more than 30 minutes. It should inflate a 13" tyre to 35psi in around 4½ minutes. This is the specifications on the box (subject to change):

Voltage: 12v DC
Max Current: 10 Amps
Max Wattage: 85 Watts
Max Pressure: 100psi
Air Line Length: 48cm
Power Cable Length: 3m
Air Flow Rate: 18-20 L/min
Ring Automotive RAC610 12V Analogue Compressor
Three air adaptors are also supplied. I would recommend leaving the engine running when in use, to aid inflation power and reduce battery drain.

Does what it is expected to. The cords all fitting within the unit for tidy storage is a handy feature. I have found this really good in use, and not as flimsy as some others I have had. It is cheaper than the digital version at half the price, and the analogue guage seems quite accurate and easy to use.

I bought this inflater to replace the Halfords inflater I have for a number of years.

First the plus points: It works, in so far as it slowly topped up the air in my car's tyres. The cable is sufficiently long and the valve connector is adequate.

Now the negative: I knew from the perfectly accurate description on Amazon that the Ring inflater didn't have the digital pressure display or the automatic cut-off feature that my old inflater had, but I wasn't prepared for the tiny analogue gauge, which has proved to be virtually useless for gauging the pressure of the air in the tyre. I was compelled to over inflate the tyre - a guess in itself - and using a separate tyre-pressure gauge slowly release the air until the required pressure was attained. This is a fiddly hit or miss process that seems to take for ever.

All in all I'm sorry that I didn't pay the extra for an inflater with a digital pressure display and the invaluable cut-off feature, which automatically switches the inflater off when the pre-set tyre pressure is reached.

I can NOT recommend this inflater, except for pumping up air beds, footballs and the like.

I have had small tyre inflators that work off the cars electrics before and they have been useless. I was a bit dubious about this one but for the price thought it was worth a try given the reviews. I am not dissapointed. It inflated a visually very soft (10 psi) car tyre to 36 psi within about two minutes. Much quieter than others I've had although these things do make a noise so be prepared for that. The fitted gauge is a guide only - I found it was accurate to within +3 psi when my tyre was infalted. However, no-one should use it as anything but an indication - always check with an accurate digital gauge.

In all, the cheapest but by far the best tyre inflator I've had. An entirely useable bit of kit.

I bought this compressor to save money on having to go to garages to pump up my tyres. I tried it out the day I got it, and I am so pleased with it. It is also very quick. I carry it in the car just in case my tyres need a top up. It was money well spent. Definantely recommend it.

An excellent product at an excellent price.
Good to carry for checking and inflating tyre pressures. Beats all the poor pay for air compressors garrages are installing these days.
