Unfortunately, the unit is sold with a cheap 12 Volt, 7.0 Amp-Hour internal battery that cannot hold up under the rigors and demands put on it by the general consumer. Anyway, the battery in any of these types of portable devices doesn't last forever and will eventually have to be replaced. Think of is as normal maintenance, to be done every two to five years, even with the best of batteries.
But a simple change to a 12 Volt, 8.5 Amp-Hour, high-rate replacement battery will greatly enhance its performance. Without going into a stuffy brain-dump: A simple 21% increase in Amp-Hour capacity (to 8.5 Amp-Hours) will double the amount of work the fully charged battery can do, under load, such as the internal 12 Volt compressor motor. The "high-rate" designation is also a type of battery that is designed to take heavy loads without damage -or shortened battery lifespan.
But don't make the mistake that many 12 Volt power pack owners sometimes do: Attempting to jump-start their car from this tiny device. Doing so will instantly destroy the unit's internal 12 Volt battery and literally melt the compressor case down. Also, never plug a 12VDC appliance into the "Output DC 12V" jack that exceeds about 0.5 Amps (6 watts). For example, plugging in a small 12VDC coffee cup warmer will draw 8-10 Amps and burn out the internal 12 Volt lead acid battery in a couple of minutes. You'll know when a sealed lead acid battery is burned out when the tremendous amount of heat from the dying battery melts and distorts the outside plastic case of the compressor and a sick vinegar smell emits from the now-dead internal battery.Read more ›
It's very easy to use. I just plug it in and snap the valve onto my car's tire stem. Then I just turn it on watch the pressure needle move up to where I want my tire pressure to be. It's not as fast as filling your tires up at the gas station, but it's fast enough for me. The cord isn't all that long, so you may need an extension cord to plug it in. The pressure gauge appears to be accurate too, as I checked the pressure in my tires after adding additional air and the numbers matched. I'm very pleased with the product.
I followed the instructions to the letter - charged it at room temperature for 18 hours right out of the box.
Two cars and one ¾ -ton truck, each with four tires that needed some (a few needed quite a bit of) air.
Two motorcycles, each with two tires about ten pounds low.
One riding mower, four tires that were in serious need of air.
All in all, twenty tires of various sizes. The unit filled all tires on one charge, and the yellow light was just starting to come on with three tires remaining. The truck tires are size LT275/65R20 (quite large); each were filled from ~60 PSI to 65 PSI, so I believe this was a pretty intense test for this unit.
The total run time to fill up all tires I estimate was about 70 minutes. The only rest time it got was moving from tire to tire.
Noise - completely acceptable. Not as loud as some portable units I've heard. Quiet? No, but it is not what I would call loud. I would say "noticeable".
Valve on and off - definitely tight, a little difficult in some situations. I recommend putting a little bit of oil on one valve stem. That will make it go on and off more easily on the rest of the tires.
Charging light - stays on when plugged in, does not turn off when done. The manual recommends leaving it plugged in whenever it's not in use. I don't plan to do that. Instead I will charge it periodically.Read more ›
After my last 12V-DC inflator blew the fuses on my Civic, I decided it was time for a tire pump that didn't depend on the car for power. This unit inflates my Civic tires about 2-3 times as fast as the old 12V.
It's not as loud as the car engine and the old pump were (running at the same time), but all the noise is from one point, so it seems louder to my ears. It vibrates enough to "walk" a little while running on the concrete floor.
The unit has storage panels front and back that store all of the cables/accessories that come with it, and a short instruction leaflet. The in-built gauge is useless. It approximates the correct pressure with the unit off (but not clearly enough to read a specific number). But turn the unit on, and the indicated PSI instantly jumps to 40psi and stays there.
I have to check the pressure before and after with my Accutire Digital Tire Gauge. An accurate built-in digital pressure readout would have been outstanding. The flip-tab on the hose is kind of stiff for the first few uses, I ended up letting a bunch of air out of my tires in the process of getting it locked into place.
The product's lead-acid battery has the advantage of no "memory effect", meaning charging the battery w/o discharging it fully doesn't shorten its life (like a Ni-Cad), but the drawback is that much like your car battery, a lead-acid must be kept topped off, and if you allow a lead-acid to drain completely, it fails and is no longer chargable.Read more ›
