    Electric tyre pumps

    I've got a proper compressor, but space constraints + effort in getting it out make it a bit of a PITA for a top-up of a tyre.

    Do those ~$15 eBay-spec electric pumps work reasonably for a car tyre (they don't take 3 hours to get the tyre from 32psi to 40psi)?
    I see that DeWalt has an 18V skin (inherited couple of 18V skins/batteries from Dad) but has no listed info regarding whether it can do car tyres acceptably ...
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    Don't know about DeWalt but I use the 18v Ryobi tyre pump and it works really well. Tyres are pumped up reasonably quickly and it stops at the pre-determined pressure so you can do other things while it chugs away. I've seem a lot of them in pit garages at club track, sprint and race days.

    Can't imagine the DeWalt version would be much different.
    If you dig a hole and it is in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help.

        Ive got a mean mother adventurer 3.

        got it during an ebay sale for <200 bucks. has a remote which is kinda nice when changing between tyres.

        that thumper would do the same job for 1/2 the $.

            The best 12 VDC one I have ever seen was the one in the back of my Audi with the run flat.

            Maybe hit up a wreckers for one or check ebay.

              Pumps a bike tire up in about 15 seconds, where my $100 super cheap one would take 2 minutes.

                Also in the boot of the Toerags.
                Bloody handy. No auto settings though.

                  Thanks for the comments & suggestions on the 12V ones; and thanks Banzai for the info on your 18V one.

                  Jason Broadhurst & Its me, does that Ordi/VW/Skoda one use a bespoke 12V plug or the cigarette lighter? It can't be that hard to splice-in a pair of alligator clips & run it direct off the battery (easier than fixing the cigarette-lighter/12V-port in the Volvo ). The only downside of a 12V one is that the urge to purchase more 18V skins is a powerful one

                    Has alligator clips and about 5m of wire.
                    Only problem is its a cunt to repack back into itself.

                        Same. Very happy with it but need to buy myself some more amp hours

                          yeah the double ender is a fast unit.

                          It's nearly as fast as my $$$ ARB twin unit.

                          The baby ones that dumbhurst is talking about are an order of magnitude slower.

                            Thumper is great if you are doing series of tyres, and i use the single one regularly enough. The Ryobi is better though if you are just topping off some tyres as the set and forget function works a treat.

                              I just figure that if you don't actually have a flat tire - you could go to servo... If you can't be fucked getting out your real compressor..
