Oh ok. My bad. I still find it expensive though.

I just checked the Tropicool website and these are what I found,

TROPIcool 3 in 1 Air Compressor New 210907 | Tropicool

TROPIcool 3 in 1 Air Compressor | Tropicool

TROPIcool Tyre Inflator Model LINK | Tropicool

The Carplus store has the last one which is the digital one for around Rs. 3200/-. However, I feel the top two ones are more powerful and look more sturdy. Anybody knows how good this company and its products are?

I found it is working fine and gives accurate reading:

Attachment 315876

Attachment 315877
I see this in ebay for 700 bucks.
Is it really good?
Will you recommend it?

Thanks.

Could you kindly enlighten me about the performance of this VIAIR portable compressor? I am also toying with the idea of buying it from amazon.

I have been using it for quite some time and it is 100% effective. I use it for my 31" Gypsy tyres & also for my palio tyres and it does the job brilliantly.

No, I don't think this one is available here. I imported it from US.

You can get similar quality pumps for bit/much less cost here in Bangalore itself now. It costed me ~5K.

I think for 2.5 - 3.5K you can get similar quality pumps in Bangalore.

And as for using either one for filling a larger vehicles tire, think again.
What is a single barrel vs a double barrel foot pump? I thought this only applied to Guns.

Check Spar outlets in Bangalore. Recently I saw Coido make at Spar @ Oiasis mall Ejipura.
COIDO CORPORATION Manufacturer of Automotive / Bicycle Accessories, Taiwan & China
Price was ~1000 to 1500 range(don't exactly remember the price)

Recently, I bought VIAIR 85P portable compressor (Cara Mia Fiat Linea!) and solar-powered digital tyre pressure gauge. I am fully satisfied with both of them.

Bought a Coido 2153 yesterday for Rs.1050/-. Had a completely flat tyre in my Swift - 3 minutes and it was filled to 33 psi.

+ves: decent build quality; long wires; works well; compact

-ves: noisy; would've liked a digital PSI indicator
