Digital Cordless Compressor

Postby raesewell » Thu Apr 12, 2018 11:27 am

I have just bought one of these

It seems to be of good quality and has a sturdy feel. It's on charge at the moment, I'll test it out when it's charged and report back.
I got it from Ebay here

It looks good, please let us know how you get on with it, how long it takes to inflate a bike tyre , how many you can inflate on one charge, anything you like / dislike ?

Thanks Mark

OK folks I have just given it a trial run. I totally deflated my rear tyre set the unit to 42psi and set it running, it took 9 minutes 10 seconds to fully inflate the tyre. It shut off when it reached the preset pressure. I checked the pressure with a calibrated PCL digital inflater and it was bang on 42psi the PCL measures tenths so I was pleasantly surprised with the accuracy. Although the air going in was warming up as we went on, so that would affect pressure and I will check it again later but it would certainly get you out of a fix. It didn't get overly hot in operation, the air tube was warm to the touch but not burning hot as some can be.
So it gets a big thumbs up from me.

I have just performed a further test after the first rear tyre inflation and deflated it again and this time the battery gave out at 10psi
But I am happy at that, if it can inflate one tyre from flat that'll do for me.
It was £33.99 and that was one of the cheapest on Ebay there are more expensive ones, I don't know if the more expensive ones have a more powerful battery.

Good testing info Rae!

When the inflator battery has been flattened, can the unit be plugged into a USB source and continue inflating a second tyre without being recharged?

I don't know Ced and I have no way of testing that at the moment. I did read somewhere that it gets about 90% charge in something like 15 or 20 minutes.

Hi Rae
good review. Tyre inflater and Torch combined which is useful. The one thing that is inside the box but not available is the option to use it as a USB power pack

I have a 12V starter unit with USB out which is good but there is a special connector so it is not easy to get at the 12V except with the crock clips, it would cost coppers to give us a lead with the connector on so you could access the 12V or even put an accessory socket on.

Hi
yep, but I can not find the connector in anyone's catalogue. I was given the starter battery as a present so did not get to choose the one I got

Here's one from the UK, if you can wait for one from China they are cheaper.

A bit more info, it does not run while charging (I found a way Ced) and ignore the 90% in 15 minutes. It needs to be fully charged.
However all in all I am happy with the way the unit performs.

Hi Mark
They look like the right one, are those connectors some sort of standard?

Hi George,

I think they call them DO or maybe OD connector because of the end on profile.

My brother has had two starter packs and both of his (different brands ) are the same as mine.

Just wondering why you want a pump with the small capacity rechargeable battery when won’t you have access to more stored electricity in the motorcycle’s battery?
Or real old school how about a traditional bike pump!
I do have the CO2 cartridge system in the toolkit on my R100R but have never had to use them and am not sure if I could.

I’ve got three of these, well similar with double head for push bike.
One on the push bike, one on Schorsch and one was under the seat of Walter and Friedrich; sorry Andy, kept it, I bought it!

I have used it to fully inflate a flat tyre. Pretty sure it didn’t take more than ten minutes.

Easy to store, no maintenance... and I could take it on a flight if so inclined :grin:

To answer your question, because I'm a big kid with more money than sense and I love gadgets. Also as I said previously, using tyre sealant means I haven't had a flat tyre in over 70,000 miles. Being a belt and braces man I like to have a backup just in case. I have the Bikers dream foot pump as well and they are both on the bike at the moment and I will retire one of them but as yet don't know which one.
You can't take your money with you so you might as well enjoy it while you still can.
I hope that clears thing up for you.

This is the first time I have seen this one, so it may not of been available when you got yours.
