Even this product claimed the maximum current is 14A, it burned my car's 15A fuse on the second time I switched it on. I put in a 20A fuse, and tried it again, the pump did not start. After disconnect tire, switched it on, it started. I did more tests, and found that if it was connected to the tire, and air pipe had some pressure in it, it might not start. This is definitely not "Heavy Duty"!
Since both of my cars use 15A fuses, and it appears not working reliable, I made my decision to return this pump. I have shopped with AMAZON for more than 10 years. This is the first product I returned.
Update on September 16, 2010:
I got a feedback on my review from BT (see Comments bellow). BT had the same problem sometimes. This implies that the problem may have broader base. According to BT's suggestion, if your car has a 12V sockets that connects with car's battery directly, you should use that socket. If your car only have a cig lighter as a 12V power souse for this pump, I suggest you to change your car's fuse with a bigger one (making sure it does not violate your car's warranty). These solutions will help to avoid burning your car's fuse. However, the pump failing to start problem still exists.
As on this update written today, the product is still labeled as "Heavy Duty"; and product description says: "Current Consumption: Max. 14 Amp, Max.". These claims are very questionable.
It would, however, greatly benefit by being suppied with a storage case of some kind!
can't deliver. I bought this product based on Wagan's claim that
"It inflates one 16" car tire in only 90 seconds". First off in my opinion
this unit was used, not new.There was grime (not grease) all over the base. The box also looked worn. Second, this compressor would have a hard time filling a bike tire in 90 seconds. I tried to fill a partially deflated 16" tire and ten minutes later the unit was red hot and still wasn't close to being finished. If you want to inflate a beach toy or a basketball this unit would probably do the trick. A car tire? Forget it. Don't take my word, look at reviews of Wagan's other products.
and the high - pressure hose' tore open and the piece of ******* machinery (?)
does not inflate anything. Only buy a unit that has a plastic or rubber bushing
where the hose inserts into the main unit, absolutely, no stars here !
