Black & Decker Li-ion tire inflator

This thing is sweet  2o2
3-Way power - 12VDC, 120VAC, 20V MAX battery options.

I used it today with my B&D 2.0AH leaf blower battery to adjust my rear air springs and all 6 tires prior to installing a new TPMS . It adds one psi to the programmed setpoint, and the digital gauge agrees with the “gold standard”  Accutire MS-4021B. Comes with adapters for water toys and air mattresses too.

Does it take "forever" to bring a tire up to desired level?    I have a CO2 tank that I used on my DP tires.  It worked great to bring pressure to 100 lbs, but it is getting more and more difficult to find a source to fill it.  Since I no longer have a full basement, it will take up a lot of room in my Toad. 

Thanks for the heads-up on this product.

Cheers  :)(:

Running on the 20V battery or AC it’s much faster than any of the 12V models I’ve had,
although I have not used it on 12V. I was only adding 5psi but it finished one tire while I checked the pressure on the next.

Thanks.  I think I will get one.  My Lowes location is showing two in stock.

You will need to buy a Li-ion battery too, but even the 2.0 AH max is still much cheaper than a comparable Dewalt, Ryobi, etc.

I was under the impression that it can be used without a battery by using a regular electric plug?  Is that not correct?

I see my Black and Decker 4-10-20-40 amp charger with start feature is no longer sold.  It was re-styled a few years after I bought it.  I can't find anything like it, not even under other brand names as was the case.

This is the one I have and really like a lot.
The cooling fan inside failed once so I installed a high quality industrial version.


This is the redesign.

Many jump-starters like Ron shows here have an air pump also and are a must have item anytime I go anywhere in any of my vehicles (when I remember to grab it that is.)
That and cans of fix-a-flat.  A jumpstarter is a much easier way to be the hero when someone's (or your own) engine won't turn over.

My thought......

The ones I see for sale today, the amperage have a 15 amp max output, not 40 amps like my older one.  The 15 amp version is fine for regular vehicles with a single battery, but the 40 amp version is idea for a motor home with a pair of house batteries begging for a quick recovery via the Onan generator.  My on-board Tripp-Lite converter/inverter has a 20 amp max output, more than the new portable one.  At that point, my main reason to have one has ceased to exist.
