      Electronic Car Tyre Inflator & Air Compressor Pump

      Is the electronic 12-V car inflator and air compressor pump effective, especially if you have complete flat tyres ?

      Any suggession for the best buy in terms of brand and model ?

      Do note the 12v car inflators take an awfully long time to inflate tires close to 15 minutes. but hell ya in an emergency that's nothing.

      as for brands i think there was some discussion about it on gearheads

      Check this one out. http://www.snapdeal.com/product/moto...flator/1337175. This one had to be directly connected to the battery terminals and not the 12V charger socket.

      I ordered this before i went on a long trip, but received one with a broken brace, so had to return it, so can't give a first hand information on the effectiveness, but the reviews in snapdeal suggest, it is an excellent product. Give it a try.

      This is what I have and found it to be very useful. To fill a car tryre to 32+ PSI it is better if you put your car on jack. Used it couple of times on my car and found it effective and I have used it many a times on my honda activa to inflate the tryres and the required pressure is attained in less than 2 minutes.

      I got 2 of these for my friend's and they are really happy with this,

      According to them it takes not more than 5 min to inflate a flat tire.

      Though I got this at lower price than mentioned everywhere.

      Of-course due to links I have.






      This is coido and only negative point it has is that,

      it doesn't has any warranty,

      I have bought at least 10 of them for my friend's till now,

      And no issues at all.

      When my car was new, i was thinking of buying such tyre inflator. But kept postponing it for one pretext or other.

      First set of 5 tyres lasted some 58500 KMS, and about 3 years. During these three years, the vehicle had 3 punctures, One at Doddaballapur, One in my home car park itself, and one near Coimbatore on way to Kochi. Fir first two instances, i had a tyre repair shop close by, third instance i used the stepney wheel to reach Kochi.

      Second set of 5 tyres lasted only 2 years and four months, but ran for some 63000 KMS. During this period, i had only one puncture (rear left tyre), near HSR Layout in Bangalore, i got it fixed at a shop near my house as tyre still had some good pressure.

      Tubeless tyres have brought down the instances of the tyre puncture. With a bit of careful driving one can avoid it as well to some extent. In last 2 years, i have not felt the need for this tyre inflator.

      Yes, i read that, Many of my colleagues from South Bangalore used to narrate their troubles with Nail Mafia. I can not imagine how someone can be so sadist to intentionally trouble others to ear their livelihood, that too such small amount of money

      Sometimes staying away from the epicenter of the IT corridor helps to some extent. i might be simply lucky.

      Rs 300/- (min profit) per puncture is a windfall for them. Pune also witnessed this and I suffered with my new car-new tyres, three punctures at a time in one tyre! Well, I am still not sure about how and what happened which caused those punctures. BTW, I don't live near IT/Automobile/market place, etc.

      Coming to the topic, I too wanted to have one car inflator like this but went for the one foot pump instead. It served nicely last ~4 years, as and when required to top-up and maintain all the tyres to required PSI. At the most I filled 3-4 psi in any tyre at one go.

      Whenever I go on long trips, I used to top-up at the tyre shops having calibrated compressors. I crosscheck with my air pressure-gauge.
