    Disc 12Volt tyre pump

    I have bought two Disc tyre pumps and both have failed after a few months.  I don't have too many tyre to inflate but due to back problems I find it difficult to use a manual foot pump and found the Disc so much easier.   However, I can't keep buying new ones every few months so, does anyone have a recommendation and to a good, reliable electric pump.   I thought about a motorised air compressor but as I know so little about such things I was hoping for a bit of intelligent advice from the Trophy forum.

    I had a Mini 12volt tyre inflator that I bought from a Supermarket for less than 10.

    At that price you can't go far wrong and it had a power cable that was long enough
    to plug into the accessory socket inside the Top box and still reach the front tyre !

    Too big to fit in the under the seat stowage box of a Trophy SE,
    but there was always a bit of room in one of the panniers or top box.

    It had a gauge on it, but I preferred to use a seperate tyre pressure gauge that I knew was accurate.

    Have a look on eBay - seach for "Compact tyre inflator" - there are lots !

    Cheers  :821:

    Personally I've bought this one, that I always carry in one of the panniers or in the tank bag. I've already used it a few times for my own good or for some friends, it's very effective: https://www.louis.de/en/artikel/airman-tour-air-compressor-inclusive-adapter/10002998

    I have a couple of these for my bike and car. No doubt they wouldn't last long in a tyre house, working all day, everyday, but ideal for the once or twice I have needed them. 11-49 with free postage and it fits in the storage area under the seat for those of us who dont need to listen to sing something simple as we ride.

    I have owned and used the Airman pump for about 2 years. Excellent product and it fits in my underseat storage compartment (non SE Trophy) together with a tyre/tire plug repair kit and the tool kit.

    I have this guy: http://www.dynaplug.com/inflator.html (you can get it for less on Amazon).

    I can't say I use it regularly as I have a full-size air compressor in my garage, so I use that, but I have used it on the road and it has worked fine. The problem with the small air compressors is they get really hot, so you need to give them ample time to cool down or else you risk drastically reducing their lifespan, which is why I like this one because it has a fan to cool the motor.

    I think a full size air compressor in the garage is the answer.  I appreciate all the responses but still really none the wiser.   I note that fact that 12v pumps get hot during use but I only check six tyres at a time (Car + Bike Sometimes my push bike) and I would have thought a pump should be able to handle that without too much trouble. 

    Cheers
