    It looks like that may be possible. But its's such a beast that I bet it'll be around longer than me. I mean this thing jump starts a large 8-cylinder car in a split second. I'd rather pay $75
    for this with an unconditional lifetime guaranty than $40 for something that may or may not last a couple years.

    I bought this one. Found it on sale (paid around $65 or so), so the price was much better than the current amazon price. It works well - no complaints, except that it's not terribly portable.

    I saw this one recently and thought that it looked nice. I like the fact that you can program in a target pressure, and it looks a bit more portable than the Porter Cable.

    Initial thoughts :
    The Goodyear heavy duty i8000 120 volt direct drive inflator from walmart $39.27
    Arrived today, it looked good initially. Motor runs a little quieter than the Husky, longer power cord, and the coiled air hose is all great.
    BUT: My god it's a pain in the ass connecting this thing to valves, schrader or Presta. In fact it's a nightmare connecting it to my presta valves. I was just testing it trying to top up pressure and each time ended up completely deflating the tire before I could get it connected to inflate. It has a dumb plastic thing to help you screw it on, which immediately comes loose from the brass fitting, so frustrating.
    It is noticeably slower than the Husky.

    I'll be trying it a couple more times.. at this time it is going back.

    The husky was no nonsense attaching to the valve, but the rubber hosing eventually gives out.
    If they'd just put the husky connector on their nice coiled hose, all would be good.

    Looks like I'm going to give the Campbell Hausfeld RP 4100 a try.

    This is the adapter thing that comes with the old bike pumps that I was talking about in my previous post. Since the one attachment end should swivel, it's fairly easy to use.

    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    You have - and will continue to find - reasons why the cheap products are cheap.

    I had to replace the hose on the original husky pump I have. After your suggestion looked around and found this.
    $18 works really well. Or I should say it just works! I have schrader and presta tubes and works great on both, just have to flip it around.

    The Campbell Hausfeld Tire Inflator RP410099AV arrived.
    $35.00 including delivery.
    Only used it a few times so far, but seems to work really well. Worked just fine on Schrader and Presta valves.
    Seems really nicely designed
    Has a nice long power cable.
    Has a good easy to carry handle.
    Easy accessible obvious on/off switch
    Packs away really neatly. somebody put some effort into the design.
    Gauge reads 200psi, unit says it goes to 150psi. I'm inflating to 120psi with no problems.
    Has an external easy accessible 2amp fuse.
    Will be keeping this one.

    Lezyne makes great compact hand pumps, I have two different models. Really nice for travel.

    I use the craftsman which is good especially if you have other tools and batteries to share.

    Ryobi has one too

    I think an electric pump is better than other. It is affordable and more powerful
