The Aquascape Pond Air pumps oxygenate your pond, resulting in healthier fish and plants. Aeration is also an energy efficient way to prevent your pond from freezing over during the harsh winter months.
I don't have a lighter in my car but there is a power supply. Couldn't get it to work as the directions tell you not to start the engine. I think that's the only way to turn on the power. As a disabled person who can't beat the clock at the quarter air pumps, this unit looked the best. I just park it in front of an outside extension cord. That way I can move the car to get the valves on top.
I needed something in the garage that would allow me to top off tire pressure without finding a gas station to do so. I'm tired of waiting in line, racing quarter-hogging air pumps, and holding other people up if I want to be precise about the air pressure I keep in my tires.
This unit does the job well, is not challenged in the slightest by ordinary tire pressures, didn't take long to get tires to full pressure, and operation was completely intuitive once I found the 12v/off/120v switch. In fact; it worked so well I decided to try airing up some tires sitting flat for years on an old truck I'm preparing to get rid of. I took them off the truck; and the Black & Decker worked just fine, the beads apparently stayed sealed and this unit pushed them from zero to thirty five pounds on several consecutive tires without getting hot. The only appreciable warmth I could feel was on the air hose itself, but the rest of the unit was cool to the touch after the heaviest use I'll ever subject it to.
It's not fast compared to a gas station pump but it'll still add 5-10 pounds of air in a couple minutes.
My only criticism is that the DC/Off/AC switch could have been placed on top of the unit instead of inside a cavity behind the area the cord is stored. That's a very minor inconvenience considering the problems this little, very inexpensive unit solves.
I can't speak to roadside emergency use as I've never tried it in that setting. However, if you want something to allow you to add air to tires without a gas station trip, this unit is an excellent choice for a very reasonable price.
I use this product to inflate tires for my autos and snow blower, as well as bicycles and some sporting equipment. I have only owned it a few weeks, and have found it useful and reliable so far. I like the fact that I can preset the air pressure I desire before pumping and that the machine cuts off when the pressure reaches that level. I also like the fact that it is light and small, not taking up a lot of shelf space.
I would have rated the pump four stars if not for the fact that, as other reviewers have noted, the off-on switch is located in one of the least accessible places on the device (a nuisance) and the lever on tire valve attachment is made of plastic instead of metal, and I am afraid of breaking it and rendering the machine useless.
