I can't imagine in what circumstance this would be more advantageous than Ryobi or Milwaukee's inflators. I laughed when I saw the price of this on TV and then it appeared at my local Costco.

Can someone explain this to me? No offense OP.

Half the price considering it comes with the battery?
Costco warranty?


Ryobi, if you don't have the battery, the tool alone is $80.

For those who aren't invested in the Ryobi ecosystem. This is a tool that comes with battery and tool and charger.

For those of us who already have Ryobi batteries, the Ryobi inflator seems to be way to go. If you don't already have the batteries, then this one at $60 could be the way to go (assuming the quality is the same of course).

For about the same price range, there are also portable jumpstarters+inflator combo units (with lights, emergency, USB)

Might be a good alternative for some if space isn't an issue

For around the same price you could however get your hands on a ryobi battery and similar handheld inflator. It's definitely better than the TV price of $80-$100.

My biggest gripe with this tool is that when that lithium ion battery conks out, how do you get it replaced/cost? The Milwaukee and ryobi systems have been out for a long time.

The similar ryobi inflator is currently $40 (not the larger unit). The warranty on ryobi is also 3 years... I'm not sure you'll have much luck after 2 with Costco considering it's the battery that's going to fail which is considered consumable.

Just a heads up: had bought this for a friend who wanted to use it as a tire inflator and during camping for mattresses / floats etc.

It sucks for the latter even though it claims to be usable for the same on the pack.

In short: for high pressure, low volume i.e tires it works. But for high volume low pressure like floats, air mattresses etc its terrible. Pl stay away. Had to return his.

I was in the market for a portable inflator but the poor reviews on amazon really turned me off of this product. There are alternatives that seem to review much better than this inflator.

Take a look at Home Depot. They have the Milwaukee M12 inflator + battery kit combo (2x 4.0) for $199. It’s a real good deal for an excellent cordless inflator.

Anyone use the ryobi on a paddle board? At least to fill it to 8 psi or so?
