Tyre Inflators


Hi all.

I am looking for a best buy in the range of Tyre Inflators,
either plug in cigar socket or with alligator clips.

Any experience out there, or let me know which to avoid.

hiya i brought a few

To my cost i brought those £3.99 ones in the past that run of ciggy plug - waste of money, inside they use a mixture of plastic and metal gearing - any one that knows about the use of metal and plastic together will say - bad idea, so ive taken them apart and made one good one out of three, those t max ones or ARB ones are good that run of the battery, they are used in conjunction with the likes of a ARB diff lock (air powered) but do cost money, WARN specialise in this sort of thing too but again money, amyway what i have is a 6 litre tank electric air compressor in the back running of a 2000 watt inverter, this tends to work rather well and if you use ebay it costs alot less than you think, think about it - you can get small aircompressors now for about £30 and the 2000 watt inverter is only £50 but you do have to be carefull with wiring and batterys etc and prolonged use (heat and power)thats why i always have an extension lead with me for mains electric - sorry rabbiting on now

Full of ideas but no time to do them!!

12v plug in Tyre inflator.

Hi I use a Halfords Digital Tyre inflator I bought 4 years ago. It runs from my 12v socket and is remarkably fast. It was rated 'best buy' at the time by Auto Express. I have used it almost every week to check and adjust tyres on 3 cars and without problems. I wouldn't leave home without it.

In addition

Sorry!! forgot to say cost was about £30 at the time.
