Hydralic bottle jacks seems to be cheapest. Any disadvantages in using bottle jacks? Can it topple easily?

Not very confident about Electric jack. Being unknown brand & electrical, the motor can go out easily.
Naaptol is a joke.

The jack is Rs.2050 now.

A small puncture will mess up the thingy. I am sure they have made it sturdy but you will never know. I would stick to my mini hydraulic jack. It has a 2 ton capacity with its own plastic case. A very handy and must have.
What is the price of this jack ? It looks pretty big to me, is it detachable at some parts ?

Not really.
I today saw exactly the jack shown by Sir Alec -2tonne capacity, carrying case & all in an auto parts store in Kalkaji area of south delhi for Rs 850/-.The bottle hydraulic jack was available for Rs 450/-.
Plannning to pick one up shortly alongwith a 12V compressor-Lunix, Rs 1250/-.
@90BHP- Not yery big, just around 2 ft in length.Its the kid brother of the one you see in tyre shops etc.Quite sturdily made.

You're quite right, Sir Alec, in emphasising the safey aspect.
I rechecked the pic of the jack you had posted and the one I saw looked Exactly the same.
However, in order to be doubly sure,if you conveniently can, plz post closeups of the labels on the jack & on the carrying case clearly showing the brand name, name & address etc of the manufacturer.
This would be very helpful for members to avoid picking up ripoffs of the original.
Khoj ji, the shop etc details are- JJ Traders,RZ-33-B/5, Main Okhla Road, Tuglakabad Extn, N.Delhi-110019.Prop-Rajesh Dawar,9810164287,9560886384.
You might want to wait till Sir Alec posts closeups of the labels & see if the one's that I saw at JJ's are the same.

AN UPDATE & A HEADS UP

Picked up the jack yesterday, but, fortunately for me,I insisted on checking it out before buying.
The first piece malfunctioned- it just would'nt lift up the wheel.
The next one did; but bec of the experience with the first one, I lowered & raised the wheel several times.
Since there's no guarantee/exchange on this & other chinese stuff, its strictly caveat emptor- let the buyer beware!
So, friends,plz check out the piece thoroughly before plonking down you hard earned money.
This would apply equally to tyre inflators & other stuff from china, all of which apparently comes w/o any guarantee, so I'm told by my friendly neighborhood auto parts dealer.

The Volker is being offered at a discount now. Saw a demo near CIL office, near the TV tower. 2 ton jack for 2800 and the 3 ton option at 3500. There's a one year warranty. I got a brochure that has contact information Call George at 8867381619.

Any reviews from actual users of this product?
