Anyone using an 18v cordless (or 12v cabled) tyre infiltrator?

Any good?

I had a halfords one about 15 years ago and it was garbage but I'm seeing some that are rated to 120psi so might be a handy accessory for the garage, save spending money for air at a garage or seeking out a sainsbury

Recommendations? (to avoid as well as to consider)

I couldn't find my great little Mercedes/Smart unit (which is well worth a look for on eBay or at a breakers) so I had to inflate my tyres with my old foot pump last week. Fortunately only 15" wheels and 28 psi! Do buy an electric one.

I have the ryobi +1 18v cordless inflator, it does the job on my XC70 but the gauge isn’t very accurate. Ive just bought the digital larger version, I’ll let you know how I get on.

I use a Ring one, present so don't know where from. It's great, caravan tyres are 60psi and it has no trouble with them.

I have a michelin corded 12v one. It has a digital pressure gauge, and switchable led lights.

It's very good. However, one minor issue. As soon as you press the power button to inflate the tyre, it immediately jumps by 2psi. So if I want the tyres inflated to 36psi, I have to inflate it to 38psi on the gauge, and as soon as I switch it off, it drops to 36.

Now I'm used to it, it's not really a problem, just worth pointing out.

I'd be tempted by a cordless version though.

whichever pump you go for, use the gauge on it as a "there about" thing , invest in a Decent tyre pressure gauge and use That as "the correct" number, not the one in the pump.

AND if it is a battery powered pressure gauge Change the batteries every 12-18months.

Got the Ryobi one+ inflator (https://uk.ryobitools.eu/power-tools...s/r18i/r18i-0/). Been impressed so far. Had to inflate a tyre on our mini from nearly flat - though that’s only a 13” wheel �� It had lots of charge left after us so I think it would do a much large tyre without issue.
