There are several excellent reasons why it makes good sense to have a tyre inflator in your car at all times. Imagine being stranded at the middle of the road at night in case you get a flat tyre. Its not safe. A tyre inflator will help you inflate your tyre instantly and get you to the nearest garage. No need to stand in queues at petrol pumps to top up the tyre air. Last but not the least, you can use your tyre inflator to inflate your children’s bike wheels, footballs, swimming floats and even the occasional air mattress. Bergmann Germany now brings to you a carefully designed tyre inflator that is not just quick but is sturdy, safe, robust, durable, ultra-portable and convenient. Its powerful 100% copper motor is designed for efficient long term operation even under harsh climatic conditions. Simply plug it in your car’s cigarette lighter socket, fix the hose brass valve to your tyre and switch it on. It is super-quick and can inflate a mid-size tyre from 0 to 30 psi in just about 2 minutes (we recommend you keep car engine running to give maximum power to the inflator). The easy-to-read Pressure Gauge is accurate up to +2% and is protected with a rubber bumper. You also have a bright LED light which would prove very handy during use in dark or low light conditions. Its high quality braided (knitted) rubber air-hose is heat and wear resistant. Durable metal body is grounded by anti-vibration rubber feet to prevent unwanted movement. There is no periodic maintenance required and the design is oil-free. Extra nozzles have been provided for inflating toys, balls and water sport equipment. Finally, you can rest in peace with a no questions asked 1 year warranty. In the interest of the consumer, please beware of the following types of tyre inflators. Plastic body air compressors are not able to radiate out the heat generated during compression. This results in increased wear and tear of the inner parts, resulting in a shorter lifespan. Metal air compressors are sturdier, can radiate heat better. Double cylinder air compressors are technically not suitable to be run in a car as they are known to drain out the car battery. Their current requirement is very high and there is also a risk of the car inner circuit fuse getting blown off. The power of a Tyre Inflator is determined by Watts and Litres/minute. Often, many manufactures try to fool consumers by stating higher psi figure (such as 300 psi). The psi figure only indicates what the gauge can measure and is in no way related to the power of the inflator. It is recommended to keep the car engine running while using the tyre inflator. Heat is generated during any air compression. It is important for the device to radiate out the heat to prevent wear and tear of inner components. Do not worry if the device gets slight heated up. It is normal.
