Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by michflorida Excellent purchase
Only tried twice on bikes. We have had 2 different types of inflators before. They both had cords, it was cumbersome to inflate car tires or bike tires. I think we will enjoy the ease of use of this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jettlash1000 This is one of my best tool purchases ever
I would highly recommend this inflator. It's worked flawlessly for about 3-4 years now. The battery can easily handle pumping up both our cars tires ever month with battery life to spare. Taking a road trip? Throw this in the trunk and you're all set.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bernie Good product; worth purchasing.
After returning the first inflator we bought (which came defective from the factory, apparently), we were able to have success with the 2nd one we purchased (and Home Depot made the return very easy, of course and as usual).
It is important to actually read the directions in the manual, however, and to follow the instructions in their exact order, as the various control buttons and proper procedures to follow when inflating an object are not necessarily intuitive.
Overall, a good product at a fair price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JoeZ Broke on the second use
A mostly-good inftalor with at least one major design flaw: the lever that must be pushed down to lock the air nozzle to the tire's valve stem in place has a very, very narrow piece of plastic holding it in place. This seems ridiculous given that the lever is what presses the nozzle onto the valve stem and holds it there. The plastic holding the handle in place snapped the second time I used the inflator, so now I have to return it to the store.
Another annoyance is that the AC adapter needed to recharge the inflator's battery doesn't store in or on the unit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Billyboy Concerns about battery life and accuracy of PSI indicator.
The first one of these I purchased only lasted 3 years before the battery gave out. After going to the Black & Decker website I could not find anyone who would repair the product. This one arrived with the battery charged which made me wonder if it was refurbished or used. The battery charge did not last as long as the prior unit. The PSI gauge seems two pounds off from the prior unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dtwall Works for smaller jobs. Not a replacment for larger compressor
Overall this is a good little unit and one that I take with us on long car trips and camping trips. Works great for restoring pressure to underinflated tires and filling large air mattresses on those car camping trips. The battery feature is nice, but proably the weakest part of this product. Using the low volume/high flow side, you can fill several air mattresses/air toys without fear of draining the battery. The high pressure/low volume side is a different story. On a recent trip off-road, we used this guy to air-up the tires after extended sand surfing and was only able to air up one tire before the battery "died." 10 minutes later and the battery was mysteriously 2/3s charged. But at least there's a cigarette lighter adapter built in so you can continue the job. I wouldn't use this as my primary compressor but for those "on the go" jobs, it works very well for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by igor this product works better then i thought it would
After charging for 24 hours I topped up all my van tires and my motorcycle, And I put it in my cycle trunk for a few weeks.
when I was out walking a trail and had parked my bike for about an hour and found my fount tire low I removed it from my trunk and topped it up before leaving.
the unit worked perfectly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NoAirLove Works well...Until It Won't Stay Charged.
I liked this product for the two years that it worked. One and a half of those years it worked pretty well. After that, it would die after getting my tire up about 2-3 psi, which is just nuts. I'm probably going to buy another since my local B&D Service Center (Tinley Park, IL) doesn't even have the item listed in their system, which the person on the phone added that that usually means it was manufactured by someone other the Black & Decker. I don't know how true the last part is, or if it matters other than the fact that apparently I'm going to have to shell out another $60 for a new one, or quite a bit more money for a higher quality, but far less portable air compressor. At the moment I'm choosing portability with the LED light & auto shut-off when it hits the target PSI. I'm still nowhere near happy with this purchase overall, though. I think they need to update the battery, and probably more- I don't think the car plug ever worked on mine. For this costing me $30/year, I should probably just fill up at the gas station, but it is nice for my motorcycle pre-ride checks.
