I never believe the accuracy of the air filling m/c in any of the fuel pumps and hence I use a electric inflator (from eBay) and a manual tyre pressure gauge (calibrated against the service center filling m/c, it also has to be properly calibrated and I check for any change on every service). When I am in hurry, I fill it from a pump (2 or 3 psi more) and adjust to the desired pressure using my gauge.
I am planning to purchase Good Year Tyre Inflator RCP-B31C Digital Air Pump. However, have questions as below . Request a reply for these questions from the experts /experienced folks here
1. If i want to just measure the air pressure on tyres (No Inflation), should i connect the inflator power cord to the Lighter socket and then, check the Pressure ? OR can I just measure without connecting the power cord ? (Does the pressure gauge show up the pressure without connecting the power cord ?)
2. Suppose i want to top up the pressure for stepney and cable length does not support the reach to stepney (Read backside of the vechicle - Qualis), then, can i Switch ON the pump to build enough pressure(Without connecting the tyre valve to Inflator), Switch off the Power -> take the inflator near the Tyre and connect the tyre valve and fill the tyre pressure ? OR should I remove the stepney from the vehicle, every time i want to top up the pressure ?
What are the other opinions here ?
I too have a Tyre inflator but also a analog meter gauge to check the pressure weekly.

I am using the Windek tyre inflator for two of my cars. Happy customer for sure. Does the job and is priced well.
Compact, light weight, moderately noisy, doesn't jump around, auto cut off, torch light, digital meter etc.
