BELL 22-1-39000-8 BellAire 9000 Tire Inflator

This is one of those high/low reviews.  I liked the LED work light, having a light on the inflator is simply brilliant.  No trying to hold a flashlight and a tire inflator at the same time. 

I liked the storage for the accessories.   I was not impressed with the air pressure gauge.  I compared it to a digital tire gauge and an old fashion mechanical tire gauge.   I would run the tire pressure up to 40psi and as soon as I released the input button the pressure dropped to 30psi.   I had to hold it consistently on 40psi to get it up to 35psi. 

It is compact which is nice.  The optional 4" air hose isn't really an option.  I was not able to use their suggested method of air input which does not include the 4" hose.   The valves on my tires were not nearly long enough to use their "no hose" method.  

I guess for the money this is ok.   $20.00 ish at Amazon

Quick 5 minute fill-time for standard 195/65 R15 tire
12 Volt with 10 foot power cord
4-inch optional air hose with twist-on nozzle & bleeder valve
Dial pressure gauge and LED work light
Raft adapter and sports ball needle

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
