I have used a Slime compressor on my bike for a few years and have been quite happy with it but upgraded to this as it has a small pressure gauge built in.
Very pleased with the purchase. It is much easier to attach to the tyre valve than the Slime and unlike the Slime does not dump most of the air pumped in when the valve is removed.It is a lot quieter and faster and the gauge is a lot better than expected. It has some damping so the needle does not jump about while inflating and when I compare the reading with the bike's on board sensor and an expensive digital gauge it is very accurate. To finish off the ability to store the cable and air hose is better than the Slime as well.
Another post has given it one star, said it failed after an hour and was useless. Well the instructions (in common with most electric pumps) clearly state the maximum use time is 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes cooling. This is more than enough to inflate the tyres on a motorcycle. Also the other poster was using it to inflate (from memory) a kid's pool. This is a COMPRESSOR which takes small amounts of air and provides high compression and is the wrong tool for inflating air beds, kid's pools, mattresses and similar. They need BLOWERS which take large amounts of air and provide low compression. For the job it's designed for this is perfect.
