If a tire on my TV is flat I'm going with the spare. I have used the bike pump when I had abnormally low pressure and then drove to the nearest tire center to have it looked at. Pumping a low tire up to 85psi with a hand pump is really not much of a workout.

Bike pumps

I believe we are having a difference in definitions about what is what in pumps.

To ME:


and this

Are tire pumps suitable for vehicles.

Theses are examples of bike pumps.

In other words, I believe being able to be carried conveniently on a bike defines a bike pump.

I too have the older one from Amazon: Q Industries MV50 SuperFlow High-Volume 12-Volt Air Compressor

which is still selling for $57 and it does a fantastic job. It might have a different air hose than yours, but you do have to screw it onto the tire. I just read the 'recent complaints' on Amazon which probably could have been avoided by just giving the unit a few breaks to cool down.

What adaption did you use for just the air hose?

I can add more power length by just clamping on a pair of heavy jumper cables if needed (and I carry those while camping).
