Tire inflator

Just got this battery operated inflator for Father's Day and don't know how I survived all these years without it.
No more lugging my compressor around and then check air, pump air, check air, pump air.........

Now I can just set the pressure I want, walk off for a few minutes, return and repeat for the other tires.

And it can also be used for air mattresses and toys as well.

Nice.

We live in remarkable times. Every day I discover that while I was asleep they invented something. Simply amazing.

Agree totally. I retired from the technology field 17 years ago and am amazed at how far it has progressed since then.

I've heard some good things about that little compressor. I'm going to have to break my 12V job so I can buy me one of them.

Looks like you have the small battery, how long does the charge last?

I have just used it today for the first time. I have just returned from a 2-month camping trip with 80 lbs in my truck tires so I wanted to reduce them back down to 60 in the front and 70 in the rear. I let about 25 lbs out in the front tires and about 15 in the rear tires. The battery run dead while inflating the third tire so I will be buying the bigger one.

I can highly recommend it.

Can you share model number on the inflator, and which battery you reccomed? Is there any way to power/charge it from Either 12V accessory or 120V AC? Looks like Home Depot has model P731 for $39.98 and a charger & lithium ion battery model # P128 for $49.97.

My trailer tires require 100PSI. I've been looking for something that can top them off on the road, without taking a full size compressor. Ryobi site claims 150 PSI, is that realistic?

I have used the Viair compressors for quite a few years with great results. We have several on the farm that we use on tractor tires. I think I have the 85P in the motor home. Not dissing the Ryobi, I just know that the Viair are great and have great manufacturer support too.

Ryobi One+ which is the model P731 and I would definitely recommend the high capacity batteries. You can get the charger and one high capacity battery for 98.97 or two batteries and the charger for 138.97.

I've only used mine once today and as most advertised specs, I think the 150psi is questionable, but 100 psi should be no problem.

The batteries are 18V so they can't be charged by a 12V source. I plan on keeping mine plugged in inside a storage bay.

It's really great to just set the pressure and it cuts off when the desired pressure is reached. And no need for a tire gauge because it indicates the current pressure before you turn the compressor on.

I wasn't familiar with the Viair so I just googled it. The advantage of the Ryobi is that you don't need to plug it into a cigarette lighter receptacle and you don't need to monitor the pressure. You set the desired pressure and it shuts off when that pressure is reached.

Mine attach directly to the battery. I don't have to worry about charging it, or being SOL if the batteries are dead. I think they make a model with an auto pressure shut off switch. I will also be interested to see how long parts are available for the Ryobi. I have a 7 year old Ryobi sander that I can no longer get parts for. It needed a new switch. I am not thrilled about that. Just for the record Ryobi isn't the only one that does that. So far when I have needed parts for Viair they have shipped them free of charge, even on a several year old unit.
