I like the layout of the controls and indicators. Clear, easy to read, easy to access. I'd prefer to see the jumper cables stowed in a sealed compartment, but they seem pretty secure. Keep the clamps clean, and there shouldn't be any issues storing this in a car.
I've used the inflator twice to inflate a car and a truck tire. Takes awhile to get a tire up to pressure, but not bad for a tiny compressor. It should be adequate as an emergency air source.
Storage for the hose is cheesy. It's stuffed into a tiny compartment, and you have to really kink the hose to stow it. The maximum length of the hose is about 2 feet, which may a problem with taller tires. Honestly, the inflator comes across as a cheap add-on gimmick.
A major gripe I have is that unit has no provision for backup power. Depending on how long the battery remains charged in storage, it may lack the juice to power the unit in an emergency. Why couldn't B&D include a 12V cigarette adaptor? This could be used to run the inflator, or charge the battery when no AC power is available. For a unit that's supposed to be a piece of emergency gear, this seems like a glaring oversight. Could have been a five-star rating if not for that issue.
Overall, I'm pleased with this purchase. For under 100 bucks, It's not a bad choice.
UPDATE: 12 Jan 2010
The inflator died on me, with less than 4 hours total runtime. The motor was cranking away, but there was no air pressure. Brought it to a B&D service center, and paid $15 to have a new one shipped to my home.Read more ›
I received this last week, plugged it in to charge the battery, and planned to leave it in the garage. I wasn't planning on writing a review until I used it, until this morning when I needed jump-start my car because "someone" left the lights on overnight. Sure enough, I put this baby to work immediately and the engine started (no surprise there).
What I was surprised about was that I needed to connect both the positive and negative to their respective terminals. At first, I connected the negative clamp to the chasis (like how I would normally jump a car), but my car would not start. I tried several places along the non-painted metal frame part and even the engine block of the dead car to no avail. As a last resort, I connected it to the bolt of the negative post (while wearing eye protection), and the car started. I know this is a no-no, but nothing else worked, and I needed to go to work. I'll troubleshoot at a later time (or most likely never). UPDATE: I've since used this on various automobiles (including the problematic car described above), and connecting the negative clamp to the chasis works perfectly fine now. I'm not sure what happened since, but now it is working fine following the proper useage.
Now, I keep it in the trunk, just in case. It has a nice compact body, so it does not take up much space. I like the light on the unit, but it is also a bit awkward to use (it points UP, rather than down), so I had to hold the unit upside down to see what I was doing. I have yet to use the inflator, so I have nothing to contribute about it.Read more ›
The jump starter works great, the internal battery lasts a very long time, and this unit is very well made for the most part.
The weak link is the tire inflator. It overheats very quickly depending on the outside temp. In hot sunny weather it began smoking in a few minutes. Within a few months of regular usage (I have a bad rim on my car), the inflator completely died. It ran, it just has no air pressure.
I guess in an emergency the inflator would do it's job, but for regular usage, buy a better inflator.
The light works well, but points straight up.
The usb charger worked as it should.
I'd give 5 stars except for the inflator.
My rating is 3 stars
