Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gitrdone Beats 12vdc inflator 10x
I like! The last 50 years since Service Stations stopped providing service, it’s been a pain keeping all the car’s tires properly inflated. I’ve been using a 100dB 12vdc cigarette lighter type inflator since I’m too cheap and can’t justify the space or expense of a several gallon compressor in the garage. I used an accurate pressure gage to verify the Husky gage. They say +/- 3psi @ 30psi, I found it to be within 1psi. And what usually takes 10 minutes per tire took ~30 seconds. 2 year warranty and relatively quiet too. It’s a keeper….

I have been using an inflator that plugs into my car's cigarette lighter for several years. It worked okay but it took forever to inflate even something as small as a bike tire. I also have a big compressor but it takes too long to set-up and put away for small jobs. The Husky 120 volt Inflator is just the right size for 90% of my projects. It is small enough to store and move, but it is powerful enough to fill a tire very quickly. The power cord is too short to reach my electrical outlet on the wall so I need to use an extension cord most of the time. I don't mind the short cord since it minimizes the space when I store it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by M5 Worked Fine Until Hose broke at end
I've probably used this about 20 times over the past year and a half to top off my car tires and bike tires. It took a while on the cars tires but no big deal. The problem is that the part that clamps on the valve stem takes some pressure to clamp down and this ultimately puts pressure on the area where the rubber hose is crimped onto the clamp. Thus stressing the joint and tearing the hose. I just love wasting money!

Used the Husky 120V Inflator for filling tires and pool inflatables. The compressor is pretty quiet, small and compact therefore easy to store to in a cabinet or drawer. The hose nicely wraps around the base of the unit, but is long enough to reach the valve stem of a car in the up position while the unit is sitting on the floor. The inflator has a gauge which gives an approximation of the pressure (I used a hand held tire gauge and the inflator read about 2-3 psi higher). Only downside is the cord is relatively short, will need to use an extension cord. If you a re looking for a inflator for tires and other inflatables around the home, this unit is awesome for the price and quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UCLAfan Works for me!
My sole intention for this pump was to use it for a high pressure road bike tire since the wife has a hard time using the manual pump to get to 100psi and higher. Even my large garage compressor could not accomplish this; I wanted something simple that she could use and one that is not 12 volt.
I was a little put off by it's measly 1.5 amp draw as I had been looking at 12v models that drew as much as 27 amps. Turns out, this works just fine for my intended purpose, although it did seem to struggle when it went past 70 psi. Once past 90 psi it seemed to catch it's breath and continue to push past 110 psi. Perfect: simple and cheap. Let's hope it lasts a bit.
As an added bonus, the dial gauge (at least on my unit) was dead on accurate when checked against an AccuGauge. 95 psi on the pump's dial was exactly 95 psi on the high end air gauge. Second added bonus, the unit includes a Presta to Schrader valve adapter with it's other adapters.Very nice!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Strong inflator, works great until the inflator hose fails
I have to say that I am really disappointed with both Husky AND Home Depot because of the poorly designed inflator tube connection. I have owned TWO Husky 120 V inflators over the past 4 years. Both failed only because the attachment for the inflator hose is weak. Otherwise the inflator works great! I have always been able to inflate any tire that I have had to put air in. Last night I went to Sears and bought their portable inflator. I am hoping it serves me better than the Husky. For an item that is used only once a month, one would expect better performance from the product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TwoWheels Good product for this price.
Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised at this little unit. Light and easy to move around. Does not take up much shelf space. It is much quieter than other models I've used.
As noted by other reviews, the power cord is REALLY short. You will need an extension cord. So far I haven't had any issues with the flimsy flip lever on the business end of the hose.
The area around the PSI gauge gets hot- be careful when picking up. The PSI gauge is WAY off. You must double check with an accurate one. Use the one on this unit as a guide. Mine is off 10 PSI at 42 PSI...

I picked this up for under $20 during a sale and it seems like a quality item. I replaced a 12 volt portable compressor that was noisy and falling apart and I was actually fine with this one being home-outlet-powered vs. cigarette-lighter-powered since I only used it in my garage anyway. I like that the externals are mostly metal and the cable management for the air hose is nice. The plug is only a few inches long so you just have to stick it inside the hose-body gap to keep it out of the way during storage. What I really like about this compressor is the psi gauge accuracy. I've never owned a cheap compressor that had a gauge that even worked much less showed the correct psi. I aired up my tires to what looked to be 32psi and sure enough my high end analog gauge confirmed the same. It's also fast compared to my previous experiences with portable compressors. For an all-around budget inflator I find this one to be top notch.
