Great buy - tire pump

scored one of these last night - nice stocking stuffer.

at AutoZone thru January 8th you can get the "Slime" Power Sport Tire Inflator for $9.95, it is $29.95 with a $20.00 mail in rebate. It is Motorcycle Consumer News pick. Heck for $10 cant see how you can go wrong.

I had one of those, like an earlier model...and it worked great for a long time...maybe an hour of inflating before it pooped out. They are not made for inflating 4 large truck tires!

It was great for my bicycles and motorcycles though. Nice score

I killed the test after smoke started coming from the pump, but the pump was still going...it just didn't sound the same. Actually it might have been closer to 1.5-2 hours.

it would definitely work long enough to get most cars out of a bind.

I bought an air compressor from Home Depot for about $300 that works great. It came with some tools, etc but I didn't need those.
You might look into it if you need one. It was a Husky.

over at Advance Auto Parts my boss bought a $50 Endrance all in one thing. It's bad . You just keep it in your trunk.

1. you can jump your car/motorcycle off with it, without the use of another car
2. it has an air compressor built in
3. the batteries last for 3 months (you don't have plug this in when you use it)
4. It has ports to charge other devices like phones and laptops (USB)

And where on the bike do you carry THAT?

The pump on sale is small enough and light enough that it makes perfect sense for carrying on a bike with a few plugs and rubber cement. It's NOT intended as a full-use inflator.

It even comes with various connectors to power it off your bike's battery - SAE 2-prong, cigarette lighter, alligator clips, and even an attachment with spades you can put on your battery ahead of time and leave the SAE end available.
