Goodyear Cordless Air Inflator & 12 Volt Power Pack - Model# i5000
12 Volt Cordless Air Inflator
This inflator is just what the home needs. Inflating tires is easy and fast. The preset pressure allows you to work in dim light and there is no need to bring a pressure gague. I have 2 slowly leaking tires that resist giving up their leak source. Now, it is no problem to fill um up and be back to doing the yard jobs.
I have been using this item for 6 weeks and have not had to recharge the battery yet.

great little pump
I purchased five other pumps over one year and returned all as "junk". This unit is well made for the price, well designed, and easy to use. I like the way it attaches to the tire with a flip lock clamp and the relatively sturdy hose. it is rechargeable or 12 volt.

Very convenient for light-duty use
Be aware that you must cool the unit for 10 minutes after running it for 10 minutes so it doesn't burn out. I added about 4 psi to my vehicle tires and it ran for less than a minute per tire. It runs quiet for an inflator. The built-in lighted dial guage is very accurate, but kind of hard to read because the marks are small and close together.
Setting the target pressure is easy, you just twist the guage until a pointer lines up with the psi you want. The inflator automatically shuts off at that pressure and it is accurate and consistent. No switching back and forth between filling and checking with a separate tire guage and bleeding air to hit the target pressure. The setting stays until you move it again, so you can bring all your tires to the same pressure without re-setting it for each tire. No fuss like with a digital one. Super convenient.
I recommend charging the battery immediately after use and keeping it fully charged at all times. The lead acid battery will have the longest lifetime that way. Once the battery gives out, the only way to run it is directly powered from a 12V vehicle outlet.
The manual and the labelling of switches and sockets is a little confusing, but operation is not overly complicated. There are two switches and two power ports. You'll figure it out.
You could burn it out with a big job like completely filling an RV tire, raft, air tank, etc. unless you stop every 10 minutes. As long as you stay within the limits, this will be a good tool. Probably the most convenient way to maintain vehicle tire pressures.

Best Portable Pump I've Used
I have owned quiet a few portable air pumps over the years but this has to be the best of the lot. It is well designed, well made and pumps up fast. The auto shut-off at the selected pressure is a great plus. Works for the cars and the camper. Love it.

Air Pump works great
Works just as advertised. It's nice to "set it and forget it" and let the compressor fill the tire to desired pressure and then stop automatically. Really convenient. Even works on huge tractor tires. I can get something else done while it's inflating and not have to babysit it till it's finished.
