My colleague bought 5 Bridgestone tyres for his Ritz VDi so as an offer the shop guy gave an inflator free of cost.

He didn't need it so he have that to me.

Here it is:

Works well and fills in a flat tyre (0 - 33 psi) within 2 minutes 8 seconds. Gauge is accurate and vibrates less as the support legs are rubber padded.

Asked for the cost if I wanted it separately, he says Rs 1200.

Edit :

The MGA brand one looks similar to one I have put above.

Default Re: Tyre pressure gauge and portable inflator pump / foot pump

these type of portable pumps work well till 3 bar or some 43 odd psi. Post that it is a struggle to fill upto 4.5 bar. Can take upto 15 mins for refilling just 1 tyre upto 4.5 bar. So then give it a break for 15 mins and then use it on the other side.

But very useful for routine passenger car 30-32-34 psi.

Got a Coido 6312 D auto cut off portable tyre inflator from paytm for a steal 1100 INR, the original price was 2200 but there were running a flat 50% cashback on some items and got hold of it.

The display is digital + backlit, just connect it to the valve and it shows current pressure, then choose what you want and hit start and it auto cuts off at preset pressure. Very handy tool, fills pressure fast and there is no need of any hand held tyre gauge to check pressure. I do not need to go to petrol bunks now and wait in line, even their gauges are not calibrated. This thing is pretty noisy though.

Yes, the 1500 rupees model looks exactly similar to this one. I am planning to get one this Monday.

Bought MGA branded portable inflator pump today.

MRP- Rs.1990

Initial Review
1. Noise just a bit more than a regular trimmer.
2. Vibrates a bit, but has rubber paddings on feet to control them.
3. If Engine is on, it fills a Swift ZXi tyre till 32PSi in exactly 2 minutes. That's quick. On battery, speed decreases after 29PSi

Showroom people have a tendency to talk crap. There were two models on offer, a cheaper one was offered for Rs.1490. When asked about the difference, they told me that one fills nitrogen, other fills normal air. Though I didn't fall for this crap, I bought the expensive one as it felt more robust and also filled air much more quickly with very less noise.

Sorry for the crappy phone camera pictures.

I have just bought it and have owned it for last 3 months. I have both motorcycle and car and regularly check tyre pressures on weekends.

Build wise, it is sufficient, light and has gizmos. Power wise, it is able to inflate a car tyre from 10 PSI to 29 PSI within 4 minutes.

BUT

It vibrates like hell. Since it has a pneumatic pump run by electric motor, it just jumps and shakes and vibrates and rattles. Since the plastic casing is thin and light, the pneumatic pressure acts on the walls of the equipment and makes it dance.

If you are planning to buy this, make sure you keep it in safe place away from kids cause it will not last a single fall. While using it, make sure you keep it on a thick cardboard or bunch of newspaper to soften its vibration. I hold the pump tightly on the ground to make it vibrate less.

Overall, a good option but should handle it carefully.

I have a similar thing and it works fine. In fact the the huge XUV tires also fill in pretty fast. The problem with most of these devices is that unless you have one with high airflow rate they take eons to add every pSi pressure beyond 30 pSi particularly with bigger tires. So if you are planning to buy something like this explicitly ask for the airflow rate. Or better still try adding in 1 psi pressure in a car tire with 30 or more psi already there. If you find that it takes 1 minute or more then it is better to leave that.

Have ordered the Resqtech inflator from Amazon. The resqtech site was not operating from my office hence Amazon. COD available from Amazon. Price is same as on Resqtech site, Rs 999.

Is the pressure gauge on this perfect or would i have to get a separate gauge? If so, any recommendations?

Cheers,
Raj

Used the Resqtech Inflator today. The valve was gone and i had a flat tyre. Pumped up around 20 psi in about 4 minutes and took it to the tyre shop.

Noise and Vibration was manageable. The best part is the size of the Resqtech inflator. Can be easily stored inside the glovebox as well and can be carried easily by bikers.

1. Small in size and fits nicely in my car glove box.
2. Quickly inflates the tyre by 5 psi (that is the max I have tried so far).

Cons:
1. Since there is no start stop switch, two people get engaged in the process. One has to hold the inflator since it vibrates once on. Other person has to switch on/off the car battery.
2. After 30 psi, it takes lot of time to put more air. It seems the tyre air back pressure is not allowing to fill more air after 30. This I have noticed for my car as well as scooty.

Attached is a snap.

Thanks,
I found this in flipkart for Rs 499/-. How is your experience with this? How do you fill the scooty tyre with this one?

Hi pramodpk,

I connect the inflator to my car 12V socket and bring my scooty near to the car to fill it up.

As I mentioned in my post, its quite handy and quickly fills till 30-31 PSI. Beyond that I have not tried because its written on the instrument to not operate for a long time in one stretch.

Anurag .. I am also looking to pickup a tyre inflator and zeroed in on Coido 3326 as one of main options.
How is doing for you? How much did it cost to you, its available at Snapdeal for 1100/- as of now?
Also, do you compulsorily need the pressure gauge?

Hey,

I am currently not using that. I have given it off to my colleague who was in need.

I am currently using another one. Here is the link to the post containing the details :

Check Paytm for offers and Cashback. The one that I am using is decent enough.

This one looks better in performance - lesser time to fill as well as noise.
But what brand is this .. any pointers to search for it?
