At mitre 10 mega today I got a tyre inflator for only $10. They seem to be average quality but definatly not low qualility like the super cheap ones. These have a light, and I know what your saying, all this is very normal so who cares. Well the one awesome feature is the digital guage which has a preset PSI. Once the thing gets to the preset pressure it stops. I recon for $10 its a great deal and takes the hassle out of reinflating your tyres.

Hi F4,
The digital pressure gauge alone is worth more than $10
Hell, if the bloody thing lets the smoke out in a week just adapt the pressure cutout to a decent compressor and your away.

I just opened it, the quality i got to say aint bad. It also has onboard spare globe, 2 different inflation nozzle sizes a ball inflator and a orange lens for the light. You can toggle between PSI and BAR for your preset amount. Its a lot like those new digital service station pumps in terms of the function and idea. It also have 4 very spongy rubber feet for shock absorbtion and a fold out stand which i cant see any point to. Goes up to 100PSI. Both the power cable and the air hose have seperate starage compartemnts built in and there is a carry handle too. Like I said for $10 I think it's good value even if it only lasted a year.

But you haven't checked out the most important feature - how quickly it inflates your tyres. I bought a decent one after finding my cheapie took about 15minutes per tyre to bring my tyres from 17psi to 30psi. The one now have does the job in 3 minutes per tyre and even that is a while to wait when you are leaving a sandy area and hitting the hardtop. (I sat on top of big red for an hour with the old one)

Must give you plenty of time for a cup of tea :-))

I reckon the bargain is the $6 hand pump - gives you a free gym workout while you're using it.
