When you are using the pump, is the engine idling at that time or are you running it on battery?

I had kept the engine off. I was running the pump through the accessories socket.

How do I reduce the pressure in a tire manually. My portable air compressor only inflates and doesn't deflate.

Use your car's key to deflate. Else, hold the Inflator's nozzle lightly and release air and lock the nozzle in between to assess if the desired pressure is set.

For reducing this pain, I have a portable pressure gauge (apart from the Inflator) and I use the key to release excess air and use this pressure gauge to check till desired pressure is attained.

Went ahead and ordered the ResQTech inflator from Amazon.
Awaiting delivery now and hope to use it on my car and bike. Maybe could even inflate a few balloons for my son!

Got myself resqtech air inflator from the company directly. The delivery time could have been better (8 days)!Anyway!!

I have not used it so far as I have been filling nitrogen ever since I purchased my Ertiga. Now the question is, do I need to deflate completely and fill normal air before I start using this? Any help on " how to use" is welcome.

Thanks!

No you don't need to push out nitrogen in order to fill normal air, as and when you will refill air the percentage of N2 will decrease gradually.
Normal air anyway contains >75% of it.

I've been using the Emporis pump for about ten months now. On my daughter's Alto it worked well. Then fearing battery drain, I stopped the pump, started the engine, and plugged it in again. The fuse blew.
On my SX4 I have been using it without any issues without the engine running.

Last year I had brought emporis pump after referring to team-bhp. But, I have hardly used it fearing for the fuse. First time when i tried, it worked fine. Next time, it blew the fuse and after replacing the fuse, i tried using it with 'engine running', but still the fuse went off. Since then i stopped using it.
Any idea why this is happening and how to avoid it?

I have been using LIMI portable digital tyre inflator since last 3 years. Got this from a car accessories shop on Pune for Rs. 2500.

Fearing battery drain, I have always used this with the ignition on and engine running in different cars, and have never faced a problem with the fuses.

Apart from the usual emergency flash light, the inflator pumps air effortlessly and auto cuts off at the preset values.
