I bought a cheapo one from B&M and croc clip to 12v socket adaptor from eBay. Fine for occasional/emergency use.

I have two of the Ryobi One+ ones and love them.

They're pretty noisy and take a few mins to inflate the tyres, hence why I just bought a second one at Xmas this year. So now I can do two tyres at a time.

They're very easy to use though and having them battery powered means I can run out and top up mine and the wife's tyres without having to run around the house looking for car keys.

This,
Premium double barrel foot air pump with manometer 10 BAR 140PSI HEYNER Pedalmax

I use this for my Caravan tyres (65psi) have had it for a few years, good german build quality, fairly accurate gauge, expensive though.

Cheers.
I have a different version by Ryobi, the best feature is it can be set to a specific psi and shuts off at when it reaches that psi. Very cool and a lot less hassle than dragging out the compressor, attaching the hoses, and dragging it around the car.

Just remember that most of the 12v ones are restricted to inflating between set psi and not from completely flat, I researched them for emergency use but have always been put off reviews so twin cylinder foot pump may be answer for some, or if hot home Aldi have a 24ltr Compressor for £69

First of all why do the tyres need pumping up?
Not just pumping up but sometimes deflating a little.

As the temperature changes with the weather so does the pressure in the tyres change.

Also if when checking the tyre pressures, that need to be done regularly, some pressure is lost by accident the tyre will need pumping up again.

Why would you not keep some kind of pump handy at home or in the car?

I think the physics of temperatures and pressures have passed you by!

With your username I'm surprised you'd even have to ask.

I can safely say never think about buying one of these, I had one and works in theory. Just the sort of thing you don't want to be leaving in the house or car as when the power is low, it beeps constantly like a fire alarm thats wants its battery changing. drove me nuts and eventually took it back for a refund as it never seemed to hold its charge.

we now have one of these, well its an exact copy of it anyhow. Needs the 12v but is relatively quick and never given any bother in 2-3 years now. only downside i can think of is you do loose a bit more pressure as the valve attachment is screw on and off as opposed to the much better clip on tab style one like on the previously mentioned Ryobi
