I can vouch for this one. Have been using the same one for 10+ years now without any issue at all. Got it as a ServiceAnniversary gift from my organisation and am glad I chose it fromthe gift-catalogue.

I got the exact same one, but from a different buyer and had the same question, how accurate are these? I tested the pressure a week after I filled nitrogen from one of the pumps, and all of them were showing on an average 2PSI less than the desired level. How do I verify the accuracy of these products?

Is anyone using this motocop model? I am looking for one, for my Duster.
http://www.snapdeal.com/product/moto...4#ReviewHeader

This has an auto cut-off feature which I have not seen with most of the other models, but not sure if the price of 2.6k is justified.

I'm thinking of purchasing a portable tyre inflator for my bike. Any feedback on any of the Coido 12V inflators? I see different models too, though I've no idea as to why something is double the price of another model.

Read a review on Amazon that the car charger has to be 15A to use this. Id the charger port in Maruti/Swift 10A or 15A?

Not sure how accurate the device is but plan to use it regularly.

Not able to decide whether to buy tire pressure pump, though I short-listed LIMI portable from http://www.emporis.co.in/ based on reviews and feedback from members.

Have you compared it to other gauges ? I bought the same piece and it's showing 2 PSI lesser than my old one. Maybe the old one is faulty, not sure thorough :-)

No I have not compared it with other gauges. But, yes it shows reading which is almost same as that is shown at the petrol pump air filling station.

Picked up this very compact and useful tyre inflator and digital tyre pressure gauge from Sears. Thankfully had a relative coming down from the states.

How is the performance of the inflator? How long does it take to fill a tyre? How much did each item cost?

I bought these two for my bike

1. Coido twin cylinder foot pump - 800/-

Name:  Coido.JPG

2. Coido digital gauge with torch - 550/-

Used foot pump on my bike's tyre. With 25 pumps, it took the 90/90-17 front tyre from 23 PSI to 33 PSI. So, it's pretty effective on skinny tyres found on the puny bikes. Will be very helpful for motorcycle tourers.

Coido is a Taiwanese company that makes good quality products and you won't go wrong with them (but beware of cheap Chinese fakes!) I have one and it works flawlessly. I believe the different models have different inflation capacities and some have some additional features like warning lights etc.

I'm not sure of the 15A requirement. It may be for some of their larger capacity models. The one I have has worked very well on cars like the Indica, i10 etc. which I believe have 10A power outlets.

I have lost the attachment that came with my 'Coido like' air compressor for inflating cycle tyres. I think it was a green plastic attachment.
Does anyone know where I can get that?
Secondly, Is there any air compressor that runs on 220Volts? I would prefer to fill up air in all my vehicles through that instead of using the car battery since my cars do not run frequently.

What: Need a 12V tyre inflator.

Budget: Rs 1000 maximum.

Usage: For regular top-up's and in case of emergency and I do have a bike + cycle at home so will be helpful for them too.

What I Found:

Manufacturer: Coido
Model: 3326

Specifications:

Max Output: 300 psi (Read out on the pressure gauge)
Input Voltage: 12V
Power Cord Length: 3 meters
Inflator cord length: 1 meter
A flasher and a light too provided for night time help
A ON/OFF switch for the compressor.

Verdict: Does its job without any great drama. I recommend this if it is mainly used for top-up's as the time taken would be long to fill in air from a flat.

Last but not the least, do buy a set of ear plugs too. Makes hell a lot of racket!

CAUTION: Keep the cars engine running during usage of the inflator to preserve the car battery.

Updates from my end in due course of time: Shall see how long it takes to fill to 32 psi on a flat tyre. Not going to rely on the pressure gauge given on this unit though. Have bought a separate pressure gauge already.

A few pictures to do the rest talking:

Does it say in the manual that the engine needs to be running ? I have two inflators (one is Slime and the other is Campbell-Hausfield) that I have been using for 10+ years now to top up air in our cars and I have never used them with engine running. Just turn the key to the Acc setting - that's it.

P.S.: Unless maybe if you have to fill up all 5 tyres from empty, which is not a very possible scenario.

If the top-up isn't long then ACC mode will do it but incase of a flat then yes.

I should have put it as PRE-CAUTION rather than CAUTION.

I have a similar inflator pump.
Other than being noisy, the only other issue I have faced is that relay inside the body of the pump detached itself loose due to vibration.
I had to open it up twice to fix it - first with a double sided tape and finally with an adhesive.

Thanks.
