    tire/tyre pump electric/battery/rechargable what do you like?

    concluded I have to give up trying to use the old bicycle pump.

    Which powered pumps do people use? like? hate? etc.


    Price: $110.00




    Can't find this one in the USA, looks really practical though.
    Rothenberger Cordless Air Pump For Dry Pressure Test Kits.
    Only goes up to 100psi



    similar by Bosch, again can't find it in the USA
    maybe called
    Bosch PAG 12V Cordless Air Pump






    Craftsman... Craftsman C3 19.2 volt Cordless Inflator $40



    Review of the craftsman pump.

    It seemed like a good buy,only $29 for a rechargeable Lithium-ion powered tire compressor. I read the AMAZON ad several times before commiting to buy. When I received the compressor I was surprised to find no battery or charger. I checked on line and found the battery and charger was available as a separate purchase (not so stated in the original ad). The bottom line is it would cost me an additional $49 to make the compressor functional.I was suckered in by the original ad which did not state that the compressor would not function w/o an additional purchase.

    I picked up an electric pump at Lowes. $39.95, goes up to 240 lbs.(?) with automatic shutoff. Works great.

    Interesting stuff. I never knew there were cordless pumps like that, very cool. Wish I had one. I have never found and electric pump that I liked. They all were loud, took forever and weren't built very well. Good thread though, now Im thinking about a cordless one, very cool.

    Currently using a bicycle pump from Nashbar (manual). Hard to use but works pretty well but I can stand and push the pump handle. Don't think it could be used by some one who couldn't.

    yeah I'm good to about 80psi manually and then it starts to get frustrating, bending over the side of the chair and trying to push down with all my weight.

    I would be interested in hearing reviews of pumps that are good for people with poor finger dexterity. Yes I'm a para but Spina Bifida has really messed up my fine motor coordination and my eye hand coordination.

    I have a Campbell Hausfeld air compressor but I have a terrible time attaching it and then removing it from the Schrader stem, so much so I'm afraid I'll tear the tube (it has a clamp that has to be pinched closed to open the valve)! Any recommendations for an easy to use pump, portable or otherwise?
