Ok this task is lame! Checking tire pressure sucks but it needs to be done. It's one of those tasks that I Hate doing. Well I just figured out now, I have been doing it wrong all this time. Well not wrong just inconvenient. I guess from back in Junior High when I rode BMX bikes and was a mechanic and was introduced to the small "air chuck" for filling BMX tires that's what I always used as a adult and then I would check the air in the tires with a air gauge bottom of my.

Well seeing as how most gas stations have the Worst ghetto cheep a$$ air fill stations and I has a slow leek in my tire and my TPS dash light comes on every 3weeks reminding me I need to get my tire fixed and how much I hate filling tires I decided to research a better inflator well I came across this one on Amazon. This this is Magic!

First off the chuck locks to the valve (no more having to press the chuck into the valve) the pistol grip is great. Comfortable and feels natural.
The LCD gauge is bright even in direct sunlight. The chrome button in the center just below the gauge lets air out.

Runs on 2 AAA batterys and the seal on the back seems water resistant.
Now comes the disclaimer. I can see this thing breaking easy if your a dumb a$$. You know the kind of person that thrown things on the ground or you drive over things, (this thing is no Snap On Quality) or if you have kids, or a air hose that's on one of those retractor things that is just begging to retract and whip the crap out of your car or boat or what ever. But if your a "sophisticated gentleman"
I could see you enjoying this LOL LOL

^ I agree China is not my first pic on the list of Quality items. Some things Last and other things seem to hang in there. I'll report back or if you have a link to a better made one let us know

Hahahaha. I just got one similar to that myself. After years of using the old school. I'm loving that little digital one. Needed mine for my 4 wheelers. My old tire gauge only goes down to 10 psi. I run 4-8 in my atv.

Will he accurately do below 10 for ATV and bike tires? I have about (5) valves and don't love any of them

yup, gotta use a low pressure gauge for Jeep tires. If it reads accurately downto 5 I'm all over it
