    What's wrong with a good old fashioned foot pump? Had one of these for 20 years and it's never failed.

    You also get a bit of a workout at the same time.
    Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

      It's good, as it should be for the price. But I reckon if you buy it cheap you buy it twice.
      I would be very tempted to connect that to a train-horn for the car.

        Thanks Lance. Just ordered one. Does it have auto-cut off like the digital ones? Searched for its manual/user guide but couldn't fine one.

          That looks like a straight copy (Chinese, ahem...) of my big Ring one for the Motorhome. The problem is that it has a cigar lighter connection; Ring are at pains to point out that this will overload the vehicle electrics and that theirs should only be connected directly to the vehicle battery (easy in the motorhome's case because Fiat platforms have the necessary connection points under the bonnet).

          I rather doubt it has an auto stop. It appears to have just a pressure gauge on the pump body (which is less convenient than mine which has it at the valve connection end),

          So I have my doubts you have made the best choice...

            INKSPE you don't have a proper wolf compressor fitted in the garage with a retractable hose? Pop on a controllable socket in the wings and its easy. Pop some mat underneath to dull the noise.

            Car, motorhome tyres, balls, nut wrench, big sander and polisher for bodywork etc.

              Someone should develop a tyre valve with a small high-pressure release valve on its side that opens slightly and whistles when the correct pressure is reached!

                I bought one of these last year - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07QR4Q42L - it works well and the digital pressure gauge means you can set it to the pressure you need and it'll stop when it gets there, like the supermarket / petrol station ones.

                  it doesn't, but it can take a motorhome tyre from totally flat to 60PSI in under 5 minutes. The cheaper ones have all sorts of gadgets. I wanted something sturdy and fast.

                    INKSPE - mine is portable, and in the motorhome so if I get a flat whilst away (away being the reason I bought the bloody thing) I can inflate it. Fixed compressors like yours are for mechanic workshops or posers (*checks we're in general*) with micro-dicks... HTH

                      it does have a cigar plug, but also a pair of clamps (for batteries not nipples).
                      Auto stop not needed as it's fast enough. And the body is the right place for it IMO.
