(when its on sale it should be ~$15-$20).
It is slow but does not have the term 'top-up' in the title.

I bought these for the throw in the car and forget type of purchase because I expect to use it once a year max. I have personally used it and find it to be the right balance value, at least for me.


Also get yourself a good booster cable to go with it (lower gauge means thicket cable, costs more but you will thank yourself when it actually works). e.g. of a reasonable one:

My TLDR situation was, I got a cheap booster cable and it did not work in the winter when trying to jump, called CAA and it jumped.
Bought a good cable like this and the next time it jumped fine.
A portable power bank jump starter is much more convenient. Don't have to stop someone to help get a boost.

Crayeon is bang on right, I'd go with he home depot one. I got one from Canadian Tire a few years ago for $40 it is worthless. I pumped all my tires faster using a ccm bike pump that has a gauge.

Products of this quality really have no value, you're losing $10 or $20 the dkscou t doesn't matter!

Good to keep as emergency inflator, paired with a tire pressure gauge.

I have to agree with this comment.

I too bought one of these cheap inflate from Canadian Tire and it would take forever.
It would take quite a while to even pump bike tires.

I'm not sure cheap Chinese plastic coated with whatever industrial chemicals they use is good for you, but whatever floats your boat! :lol:

Nahhh bro, all compressors will burn out eventually whether it's $10 or $200... What you need to do is buy this once, since when it does break it gets repaired free...for life:

All that said I'm not doing something silly like recommending expensive cordless inflators against a $10 one. However the Certified ones looks real crappy it's true, but hey it's $10 in 2020. Back when CT used to sell the "AirMan" branded ones they had one that would go on sale for $10 every once in a while and it was actually excellent for the money. However I had three of them--gave one to my sister who burned it out because she always gets flats. Then I broke one where tried to use it in winter and the piston was frozen so the "connecting rod" snapped when it turned on and that was the end of that. Final one burned out and died "of natural causes" but they were actually really great little compressors and lasted longer and worked better than other ones which costed me more $$.

Works great, not too loud. Filled up our inflatable rafts in a couple of minutes. Was actually shocked how quickly it worked.

It's actually the best rated cordless option according to The Wirecutter

I would get it if it had a 12V option

Tire inflators are not to be messed around with. Cheap ones can be dangerous as they don't indicate the right PSI on their gauges.

Why do people cheap out on important hardware like this?

Here is a comparison:


EDIT: To the people saying you are comparing an expensive item to a $10 item. That's the point - good things cost money and the Milwaukee one is on sale so it is relevant to the spirit of saving money on RedFlagDeals.
