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!
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.
Would not recommend getting this, really disappointed.
Used replacement unit and had identical problem. After 3 uses the threads inside hose sort of went away. The metal used for threads quickly erode and you can no longer mount the compressor hose to valve stem. Threw inflator into trash. Extremely dissatisfied. Oh well, life goes on.
Seller agreed to send replacement unit 5 days ago but has failed to ship as promised. According to seller, Amazon is responsible for the delay.
The threads inside of attachment hose extremely soft and have actually worn down after approximately 10 uses. Makes attaching hose to tire stem nearly impossible.
February 25, 2018 update.
Just after owning this for only three or four days so far, I grabbed this compressor today for the second time to top off the air in the tires on my wife’s Honda Civic. The compressor was completely dead. Couldn’t get it to work. Dead.Dead.Dead. It’s a good thing we were in our own driveway and not out in the middle of nowhere with a flat tire. This truly is a piece of chinese junk just as I suspected. I’m returning this POS to Amazon and will shop for another compressor. Hopefully a compressor that is made to last more than once. Avoid. Do not waste your money on this piece of unreliable chinese junk.
I have various tire pressure gages because I have a Motorcycle with the valve stem difficult to check correctly. My other pumps do not have this auto stop feature. That means that I have to guess how much air pressure that I am pumping into the tires and disconnect the air pump. Then I check the tire pressure with an air pressure gage. It the air pressure is not enough, I have to pump some more and checked again. If the air pressure is too much, I need to let some air out and recheck it. This is such a time-consuming process. With this new pump, I just set the desired air pressure and turn it on. The pump would just stopped at the set pressure. The first time I used it, I watch the gage like a hawk. The air pump would reach the set pressure and kept pumping for a few seconds before it stopped. On the fourth tire, it stopped half a psi over the set pressure. I just unscrew the hose fitting and let out a little air. The beauty of this air pump is that the built-in digital air pressure gage would display air pressure as long as it is connected. I do not even need an air pressure gage. The other pump that I could not locate also has an air pressure gage but it is an analog one which is useless as the pointer would be bouncing all over the place when the pump is operating.
The reason that the pointer would bounce is that the air pump itself is bouncing up and down. This EPAuto Air Compressor Pump does not bounce. It sits on four rubber feet and runs rather smooth. There is much less noise than my other pumps.
There is a light on the pump which is a nice touch. This could be used as a flash light as long as it is plugged into the cigarette lighter socket.
Due to the in-line digital air pressure gage, I can plug in the air pressure pump and check my tire pressure. The readout is easy to read.
This air pump could eliminate the need of a separate air pressure gage and a flash light.
There are a couple of things that could be improved. The pump itself is fine. The storage bag could be a little bigger and there should be a small accessory pocket within the storage bag. These small accessories could be easily misplaced. I was going to put them in a small pouch but I already misplaced them. I do have to look for them at a later date as there is a spare fuse in there.
