There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding from what I have read in other reviews. Let's clear a few things up.
First of all, you do NOT have to wait ten seconds between readings. You DO have to hit the pressure release button between readings.
Secondly, you DO NOT have to send the unit back to replace the batteries. The instructions VERY clearly state the model number of user replaceable batteries.
The hose was flexible for me in 30 degree weather contrary to what I have read elsewhere. Maybe it gets stiff in really cold weather but then I use mine in the garage.
Update, I've been using this gauge since 2007 on the original batteries. Still works perfectly.
Very Nice Gauge
Overall, definitely recommended, at least for now. If that changes, I'll be sure to update here.
December 7, 2010 UPDATE: 3 years later, this is still working flawlessly! No leaks, battery still good.
May 6, 2012 UPDATE: Still working great; almost 5 years owning it. I did have to replace the batteries in late 2011.
Six weeks later (November 27th) I received a properly functioning gauge. So it seems that a properly manufactured example of this gauge really does work properly. There was just a very large run of defective ones. At this point, I would give this item 3 stars: 4 for performance and price, minus one for the hassle involved in getting one that isn't defective.
If yours is defective, you should contact Accutire customer service and let them know: 973-402-4240.
The gauge is fast and accurate. You have both a digital readout and a bar readout around the circumference that is reminiscent of an analog gauge. The digital readout gives you a reading to a tenth of a pound and is MUCH larger and easier to read than the bar around the outside edge. The readout changes on the fly even while bleeding air. The hose is very soft and flexible. The connection on the end is awesome. The seal is great. Not ONCE have I bleed air unintentionally while trying to make a seal. The clip is solid. You can clip it on to the stem and let go and it holds on tight. The blue backlighting is bright and even.
I have no idea why you would want to clip it on and monitor the pressure for more than a second but you can if you like. The hose also remains pressurized after you disconnect it from the tire. This permits you to stare at the reading for up to one full minute. You can tap the bleed valve to reset the gauge or just plug it into the next tire and the pressure equalizes with the tire to give you the new reading. You do not have to hit a reset button (The reset button picture in the product image is now just the ON button. There is no reset button). The only time you have to press the bleed valve to get a reading is if you leave pressure in the hose and let the device go into standby while still pressurized. When you turn it on with pressure in the hose the display reads "BL" prompting you to press the bleed valve before taking a reading.
The bleed valve button is easily usable while holding the gauge in the left hand.Read more ›
I will admit I am somewhat anal about pressure in my tires maybe because being a motorcycle rider for the last 30 years or because I just brought new tires for my car for $120 a piece filled with free nitrogen, I wanted to see if the nitrogen pressure did hold until the next tire rotation, (8,000 miles) see if it drops any less than plain air, it holds way better than regular air, less than 1/2 lb.
This gauge is really made well, works flawlessly, so easy to read with that blue digital screen, seems accurate I mean reading in tenths of a pound !
One of the best things about it ? the only tire pressure gauge I ever owned that doesn't lose air from the tire as you set the valve on the stem of the tire, this is a first for me, all gauges leak a bit when setting on valve, not this one, I just hold it on a read the gauge, one might hear the tiniest of a hiss when releasing the valve and hose off the tire valve, truly amazing, I love this gauge I would have paid $50 for it !
The only gauge one needs, remember up to 60 lbs, psi, if one has to measure tire pressure of 61 or higher forget this gauge it's made to read up to 60 lbs, anything more which I tried, the screen doesn't even light up over 60 lbs.Read more ›

I have only used this gauge a few times because it is not racing season yet. I compared the reading on the gauge to the tire sensor on the car and they are the same. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Mary M
