I bought this pump b/c my old one (different brand) had been dropped so many times by kids that it no longer worked. They were bugging me about pumping up their bike tires so that they could ride them to school, so I jumped on amazon and looked for a good value in a bike pump. I am very glad that I stumbled upon this one because it has been awesome. Since it is FBA, my package arrived in 2 days. I opened it up, and it was very nicely packaged, and immediately walked out into the garage to pump up bike tires. I plugged it in, hooked it up, turned it on and watched it do it's magic. 3 minutes later, both kids tires were topped off and they were good to ride to school. I looked for other things to test and found a soccer ball that needed a little work. The included needle worked perfectly and that soccer ball is rock solid again. I even tried to pump up the car tires to see if it could do it and had no issues.
Overall, this is a compact, great little pump. The cord storage is perfect and smart and should help to keep this thing running for a long time. Needless to say, I highly recommend this little unit, it is well worth the price.
But other than that, this is a neat little emergency pump to keep in the car. I really like the pressure gauge so you don't need to keep a separate one on hand.
This is not meant for regularly maintaining tire pressure on all tires because the build quality is not very robust and it will likely break sooner if you do that. This thing is so cheaply made, it's almost disposable.
For regular usage, I use and recommend something more professional, like a ViAir unit or the unit I use, Jump-N-Carry JNCAIR 1700-Amp 12-Volt Jump Starter with Power Source and Air Compressor which is completely portable and does not need to be connected to the cars power (it's also a jump started). However, the Jump-N-Carry unit is too big and heavy to have in the car at all times so this is where the Slime Tire Inflator comes in.
I originally purchased this because Pep Boys didn't bother to clean the rims on my car before installing tires, so they lost air on a pretty regular basis. Almost weekly I found myself with this plugged into my lighter adapter and hooked up to my tire valves. It is not very fast, but it gets the job done reliably for years. Eventually, I got my rims cleaned at Midas who said "they could've knocked the corrosion off with a hammer."
Now our dog has gotten old and sore in his later years, so we purchased a dog stroller for him with inflatable tires so he can continue to go on walks, to festivals, etc., without straining himself and causing pain. Well, the inflatable tires hold the air for about a week, so I find myself using this product again frequently to air up the stroller tires. I am really amazed how long this product has lasted considering the low price tag.
I definitely recommend this tire inflator if you do not have an air compressor, or need air while on the go.
It is rated to inflate a small tire (195/R15)to 35 psi in 8 minutes. If your tire has a slow leak and is not flat, obviously it will take less time.
The Slime COMP-02 is small and lightweight: 32.4 oz including power cable and inflation hose. It is rated for a limited duty cycle of 8 minutes on and 15 minutes off, so it is not ideal for inflating large tires, or more than one tire at a time. Connected to a steel air storage tank, my unit reached an indicated pressure just over 100 psi while being powered by a normal 12v. lighter outlet (engine off).
As others have noted, it's pretty noisy, gets too hot to hold, and vibrates a lot, but it will inflate your tires in an emergency.
Incidentally, the unit I received was damaged which was probably due to it being dropped (the shipping box was not damaged at all). When I received it, there were loose parts rattling around inside and the metal compressor itself was loose within the case. When I opened it up, I saw two broken mounting sockets for the rubber mounted compressor motor. These were repaired with some fast setting epoxy and the compressor was re-assembled and found to run fine.
Because of the way the heavy compressor motor is suspended internally, a hard drop will likely break the mounting "sockets" so I'd recommend being very careful not to drop this unit. If you do drop it and then hear parts rattling around internally, don't run the compressor until it's been repaired.
