Valve connector detaching with desired pressure:
When you detach the valve connector, the tire valve would keep releasing air until the connector is fully detached. It's normal and can be accepted by setting up desired psi value on the machine. For example when you set 32 psi, the machine will keep pumping to 32.5 psi before it stops which consider the loss will be happening when you detach the valve connector.

It's heavier than average and feels quality, quieter than most pumps - almost too quiet, as I can't tell its done, love the auto pressure button! I can work on other parts of the car while the tires are inflating. It will stop on your pre-selected PSI. cord wraps up neater than most others and has quick connect clips to keep them snug! Comes with a handy storage bag. (I think I heard someone complain about the quality of the bag) - it is more than adequate and most importantly fits easily. It has a nifty carry handle on top. cord length good, light is a handy feature, easy to read display. Controls are intuitive and your pre-set tire pressure stays as default til u change it. Very little noise and vibration when operating way better than average. Pump time is about average. One new feature for me is the screw on attachment to valve. I was skeptical about this, but at the same time wanted to give it a try. As suspected you can loose 1/2 to 1 psi when disconnecting it. I just add 1 psi to selector - it is still quick and easy to connect and disconnect. I paid full price for this pump. 5 star.
When I say "little guy", I mean that affectionately. I've had a portable tire inflator since, well, I can't remember when, but it's been at least three cars. It was measurably bigger than this one and not nearly as impressive.
I'm a big fan of avoiding gas stations for keeping my tires inflated. Beyond the awkwardness of the pumps, their effectiveness is sometimes sketchy. Now, with today's tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), you get the reminder if you've gone too long without checking and what more perfect and convenient time to refill tires than on a rested and cool car outside your own front door.
This does everything you would ask of a portable inflator: it's fast, it's efficient and it's quiet. My old inflator sounded as if I was tearing up my driveway when I used it and it probably took twice as long to work.
I saw some questions about the potential lost air while detaching the connecting hose and it seems like the pump may run a little over the stated PSI as protection for that situation. The automatic shut-off when it reaches the pressure you set is a huge boon, as I can rumble around in the trunk or work inside the car without having to constantly monitor the pump.
I can't say much about the carrying bag, it's a silly little thing that's likely to tear over time, but that's meaningless when talking about performance and value. If I had any quibble at all, it would be that I don't seem to be able to shut off the light on the pump. It's not a big deal from a power perspective, just an OCD thing (why have it on in the daytime?).
This is a great purchase at a terrific price.
I called EPAuto after my issue with the tire pump, but hung up shortly after not being able to reach their support. They called me back a few days later and after a quick discussion, offered to send a brand new unit for free. I didn't get a chance to test it until just recently to inflate my wife's spare tire in her trunk. The manufacturer recommendation for this spare is 60 PSI. It was doing a quick job at it up until around 45 PSI where it slowed down dramatically. It still got the job done eventually so I can't fault it on that.
Pro: This air compressor has one of the best cable management systems compared to those I have used in the past; there are notched to hold the air hose around the unit with additional slots to hold the 12V wire on the leg base. It also comes in zip up travel bag. Setting the desired tire pressure is also very quick as the numbers scroll very rapidly.
Con: Pumping slows down dramatically at higher PSI. The light on the unit also can't be turned off. Not too many negatives as long as this one keeps on working!

Would not recommend getting this, really disappointed.
Now mine was an amazon warehouse item so packaging was a little beat up however everything was still in the box and looked to be brand new. As some reviews have said the included carrying bag is small and this unit is a very tight fit but I found if you wrap the cord up around the legs and don't put it in losse it fits fine.
As for the actual pump I was very impressed with the speed and accuracy of the digital display as well as the auto shut off once it reaches the desired pressure. The front of the unit also has a light which cannot be turned off so is always on a soon as you plug the pump in but I can say it has come in handy finding those black valve Stem covers in the dark or after they roll under your veichele.
Overall I'm very happy with my purchase are would definitively recommend it.
